Default help.....

O.k I finally decided to get another yorkie but instead of a baby yorkie I went with an adult (almost 5 yrs old) Well my problem is that my 8 yr old chihuahua and the yorkie HATE eachother. they got in a huge fight the other day i was crying, I had the hardest time seperating them the yorkie had her by her neck and my chi was just crying. I hit her with my shoe a couple of time but it didnt work I poured water on them and nothing I had to get one of my sons toys and bang the yorkie on the head and she finally let go. The yorkie was going to go at her again but I yelled NO and told her to go home (her kennel) I told her NO a couple of times and closed her door. Do you guys know of anything that I can do? my chi has been with me 8 years and I just can't bring in another dog and let them beat on her. How can I get them to like eachother or is it useless ...

Did you introduce them slowly, or just put them together in the house?
I am sure that your chi feels threatened by the presence of another adult dog, while the yorkie probably feels the need to assert himself in the new house among your chihuahua.
My only suggestion would be to keep your yorkie kenneled as you would a puppy, introducing him to the chihuahua frequently with your direct supervision. Bring out toys and holding your yorkie (since it seems he is the aggressor from your post), you can bring them closer and closer together, petting them to keep them calm and collected, and try to play with them with their toys. It might take a while to get them accustomed to each other, and your "introduction" times might be short at first, but I would hope that with time they would eventually warm up to each other and spend more and more time together without fighting, even if they just learn to coexist rathen than being best friends.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Yes, I'd say it takes some time and interaction before they get adjusted to their surroundings. Definitely be there to supervise and oversee their interaction. Hopefully it'll all work out for you soon.

Two females vying for Alpha Dog position can be even more vicious than two males. Think about it, ladies.

I would certainly try again to GRADUALLY introduce them to each other. However, it may not work and you may have to keep them separated or find another home for your new adult Yorkie.

Keep us posted. And I'll say a prayer for 'em......

Yes, you should have introduced them slowly when you brought the new one into your home. You may never get them together now. I live with 2 female yorkies that hate each other, and get into the type of fight you described. When that happens I have to pick them both up and put them under the running faucet until they end up choaking before they will let each other go. I have 9 yorkies and I only have trouble with these 2 females. Each one gets along with all the rest fine, but not each other.

I hope you have better luck than I have with trying to get them together.

They were fine for 3 days after I brought her home. All of a sudden they were in the huge fight. I didn't see how it started but today it happened again. I have been trying to get them to like each other I sit them both with me on on one side and the other on the other side. I get their treats and move them towards the middle until they are almost touching and give it to them. Today my aunt came over the yorkie was outside and when my aunt was leaving my chi ran out with her like always. Well the yorkie came towards the chi, and my chi was smelling her when out of nowhere the yorkie attacked her again. My chi peed and was crying a lot. I was soooo mad I kicked the yorkie twice didn't have a problem getting her off. I have decided I am going to sell her I hate to have an aggressive dog in my house. It really scares me that her next victim can be Adina or Blossom which I know would not make it at all. I hate to see her go but she will be better off as an only pet. She is great with my 2 year old and any other human BUT not dogs. I have taken her to petsmart and she growls at ANY dog that passes next to her. I just can't take this kind of behavior I love my chi and other 2 babies tooooo much to put them in danger. I will be placing an ad to try to sell her tomorrow.

Do you know anything about the Yorkie's background? Maybe there was abuse that would cause her to want to be an "only child"?? It's certainly sad that they can't get along! Good luck!!

Unhappy

I spoke to her first owner who told me that she was her favorite dog, I could understand why since with us she is sweet it's just my chi that she hates. She didn't say anything about her being aggresive towards other dogs. I called the lady I got her from and she said that she never did that at her house. (She has an 8 yr old male and a 6 month old female both yorkies) I just don't understand this at all. I really hate to part with her I got attached right away but I have 3 other dogs in my care which I love as well and would not put them in anymore danger. I really hope I can find her a GOOD home. The way things look I don't think the girls will ever like eachother. I thought of buying a muzzle for the yorkie while they are together but that would be mean what do you guys think. I thought maybe I can get them to get along without risking that she bite my girl anymore. I had to shave the lil area where she got her today so I can clean it really good and apply neosporin directly without any fur in the way. It breaks my heart to see my chi injured shes like my daughter, been with me 8 years and this is the first time something like this happens to her, she is so scared, she has been shaking all day. But it's not the yorkies fault either she might have been treated wrong and is fighting for my love. I treat them alike but guess she doesn't feel so.

Yes, it may be sad, but you really do need to protect your first three babies first. I'm sure you can find her a good home somewhere where she can be happy and perhaps be better off as an 'only child'. The tussles you speak of sound very serious and potentially dangerous to your other babies.

Hi, I'm sorry I was not able to respond earlier to this post. I have been tied up with work and family issues.

We have both a yorkie and a Malteese, we just brought the malteese home three weeks ago. We introduced them very slowly.
When we brought home chesley. Chester the yorkie was in his Pen. My husband was holding the maltese. Then we walked closer to the pen and Chelsey let out very high pitch sound... like who it that stay away... then Chester growled at her. Well then I took out chester... and held him to see chelsey... they were just looking at each other. I held one puppy and my husand held the other... and we went down stairs to watch tv... but we did let them interact... only chester was albe to walk around and snif but i did not let him get to close... that was one night... then I put them in different creates. Next day same thing... then let them walk around each other... yes they did play chelsey was niping...at chester because she did not know not to bite. We would yell at her and tap her hard on the nose and say no bite. Chester would run away... and then come back... but that was five to ten min at a time.. they get to play.... Now I don't know if this helps.. but chester loves my husband to death... that is who always plays with him.. so my husband was always holding chester... so he is not threatened....

Mind you after three days they get a long fine... they even have to sleep together or we don't get sleep. We are finally at three weeks able to keep then apart for sleeping.... i only do that be cause chesey missis the pee pad
for # 2. . If you have really had enough of the yorkies biting.. I deffinetly understand. When ever the yorkie is biting you have to let him know this is your home and it is not alowed. If you are willing to try to introduce them again... try what we did... It has to be done very slowly...
I whish you all the best.. and pry they get along...

My yorkie was about 8 months when we adopted our chihuahua mix, Byron, who is approximately 3 yrs old. I had not clue how he would react, since he is a very jealous boy...and the chihuahua was an adult and i didn't know if he tolerated other animals.

Well, first thing i did was take both of them to a "neutral ground" which was on the outside of my house, at first i thought i would have problems, but 30 min later they were playing...when i was 100% sure they were getting along fine is that i started getting closer to my house, and then inside i would keep an eye at them at all times, but thank God, i was very lucky, as they never ever ever got in a fight. Today they are best friends and play all the time.

I also didn't have any problems with them fighting for territory or with jealousy, and they were only neutered 3 months later.
