There's a country song with a line that goes "she's the devil in disguise." Well, that's my new pup. She is WILD! I had no idea until she growled continually at Roxy while Roxy was minding her own business and eating her own food. Then she attacked Roxy while they were both fetching a ball. There have been at least 3 dog fights today; all started by the new pup. She doesn't back down either, even though Roxy has about 20 lbs on her and is more mature. She just attacks!
We've decided on a name. Let me introduce "Tazmanian Devil" or "Taz" for short. It fits her. I have never seen a young dog act like such a maniac. My friend at work is sure she's got Border Collie in her because her dog is a nut and it's mostly Border Collie. The other possibility is some Karalian Bear Dog which is supposed to be a very aggressive breed. I'm still sure she'll settle down and she and Roxy will be like sisters. But not today. They do play nicely most of the time.
Thanks for all the help on the name. I almost went with Maggie, which I really like, but it just doesn't fit her. Maggie is a sweet dog. Taz is a devil in disguise.
I was just interrupted by another dog fight. Her name fits.
