agressive fe-male shiba inu

iv'e had a female shiba inu for three years for about a month now people have been calling us and telling us that our dog is in thier yard (we keep her tied up) my friend finally found the dog and brought it to us. He is a very nice male dog. We looked for his owner for a week and found no one, so we decided to keep him. He is the same exact kind of dog as the one we had(about 2 incches taller). Our other dog has had no experience with no type of dog as a puppy and is very protective of food and bones. We really want to keep both dogs, but don't know what to do. If you know ANYTHING that could help please reply

Take them both to a good trainer...

The quickest way to deal with this is to take both dogs through a thorough and good training course. In the meantime, be certain they have separate bowls for food and water, and separate bones to chew. Dogs are by nature very territorial, and protective of what they perceive as *their* property. This can and usually does include people.

Best of luck,

You must realize that dogs are pack animals. By doing some research and reading, you should be able to find how to determine which of your dogs is dominant. You must respect this order, but also make sure both are aware you are TOP of the Top dogs. Be sure that you go through doors first, eat first, sleep higher, etc. Also, if you have the chance, please socialize both dogs further by exposing them to a variety of situations. Until you are certain of both dog's temperments, it is probably best to keep them separated or cage-muzzled unless you are there to supervise. Training classes are a good idea for both dogs. Reading some books is another good idea.
