  1. Thank you for the information. We had to travel and leave them in the pet hotel (yeah, more stress...). They referred us to a behaviorist, I'll let guys know about our case.
  2. We already accepted that rehoming might be the best option. However, we have not idea how those shelters works and we cannot give away our dog to a stranger. She needs a family which is willing to have a BC (yes, we decided to keep the GSD), because we all know that this breed has special requirements. Additionally, we don't want that the "new family" face the same situation in the future. I brought the BC to my house (I'm temporarily relocated due to work), she will be safe here. Yet, I don't have the space and the time to give her the attention and commitment she needs. We are going to s
  3. The GSD hasn't been spayed because she has hip dysplasia and the vet didn't recommend doing that because she might gain weight and that will be bad for her hips. We must keep an eye on her weight. We already scheduled an appointment for spaying the BC and get the vet's opinion about this problem.
  4. What do you mean by why are they intact? They release a lot of stress at the dog park, that's the only chance we have to socialize them with other dogs. I'm telling you, the border collie is really scared at home, at the dog park she was extremely happy and relaxed.
  5. Hi guys, thank you for your comments. I noticed something today. We have kept them separated and nothing have happened. We went to the dog park yesterday. We kept them separated there as well. They smelled each other for a moment and nothing happened between them or with any other dog. However, we went to the dog part again this morning, and a lot of dogs tried to hump the BC. We had to leave the dog park. So, the BC had her first cycle a months ago, and she stopped bleeding like 10 days ago. I thought her cycle was already over but apparently not. The GSD had her second cycle right
  6. Hi guys, Another fight just happened. We were playing (GSD, BC and me). I was giving affection to the GSD, and I ordered the BC to stay away. She was calm, in a submissive position. However, the GSD was the bully this time. I saw the GSD show her teeth for no reason while I was petting her. The BC went crazy after this. I had to put myself in the middle, it was really hard to break up the fight. I don't know how they didn't bite me. The GSD never cooled down. We separated them and the GSD kept growling and barking through the gate. I have done some research, and apparently all this
  7. Don't get me wrong, I really value your input guys. However, I just cannot go back home this afternoon with the solution of rehoming one of the dogs. I need to gather all feasible suggestions and ideas before making a decision like that.
  8. Wow! Thank you all for your comments, now I'm worried you all agreed in rehome one of the dogs. Let me give you more details. They aren't aggressive on regular basis. We play everyday and they get along pretty good. The GSD sometimes eats the BC's food and nothing bad happens. The BC always take the toys away from the GSD mouth and nothing happens. They play tug, they play like puppies (like if they were fighting), they take naps really close, almost cuddling,etc. My wife noticed that the fights caused by herding occur when the GSD is very excited. For instance, when they know that k
  9. Hello there! I’m having some serious troubles with my border collie and I’ll really appreciate your help with this situation. I have two bitches, an 18 months old German shepherd and a 12 months old border collie. They aren’t aggressive whatsoever, they get along pretty good with people and other dogs. However, the BC is kind of territorial, since her was a little puppy she growls and shows her teeth every time the GSD “invades” her space. When she is resting below a chair or bench (at home or at the dog park), she can’t be bothered by ANY dog. Otherwise, she will growl, bark and show her
