Default I need help with jealousy!!

When we first got Sebastian him and my 2 year old son got along very well, as of lately everytime my son wants to cuddle or be with me Sebastian starts to bark and growl and it is scaring my son to death. I also am worried that he may do something to him, when I try to put them two together Sebastian tries to bite him. Please help... he has never acted this way until recently and I am home with the two all day. I have tried telling him no and have put him in his crate for time outs but it isn't helping.

It does sound like sebastian is jealous of your son... to him you are his mommy. How old is sebastian?? Has he ever litterally bit your son and broken the skin? I dont know what to say... but do keep an eye out and dont be scared. I know that people say when dogs behave agressive, it time to get rid of them.. has your son ever hurt sebastian that you know of?

Sebastian is only three months old. My son has never been with Sebastian alone so I would have to say no he has never hurt him, they used to play around together so good, my son would play fetch with him and they used to chase each other but now he just barks and growls at him . I have three other kids that are older and do not need me as much as my two year old and Sebastian doesn't bark or growl at them, just the baby. The odd thing is if Sebastian is in my lap when I am holding him and I take my son's hand and try and pet him he won't growl.

I am no expert, but I have heard that it takes some dogs time to adjust to a new family member. Give him some time...like 3-4 months to adjust to everything. He will learn, I am sure.

Well we have had him since he was 9 weeks and in the beginning he was great with him that is why I am very confused as to why all of a sudden this has just started happening.

Cry Sebastian Needs A New Loving Home

Well it has come to a conclusion that there is no way we are going to be able to keep Sebastian as much as we love and adore him were are going to have to find him a new home. I also found out today that my mother is going to be having surgery at the end of this month and I will need to go to Arizona and care for her for 3 months or longer and there is no way I can care for him, my mother, and the kids. It is only fair to him to be raised in a loving home where he will be well taken care of not only physically but mentally and I just can't provide it at this time. My heart is broken and I can barely type this, he has been attatched to me since day one and I never thought it would have to come to this. If anyone knows of someone who can provide him with a loving home please let me know.

Cry Sorry

I am sorry to hear that you have to give up your little one. I kow it is a hard choice, but at least it is now why he is still young enough. I know of someone local who is looking for a male. How much will you be asking? Sorry to hear abot your mom.

Thank you all again for your support, I really can use it. Everytime I look at my baby I just ball. We will be leaving to go to AZ at the end of this month so I am not asking to find him a home immediately, I want him to be placed in a good loving home because I love him so much and that is what he is used to and deserves. I have been seperating him and my son so please do not think I am rushing to find him a home. His welfare is the most important thing to me.

I'm so sorry for you ....I think you can find someone as yorkies are so special and many people are looking for one - just take your time try to do what you can to make sure who takes him is legit.... and he will probably end up in a wonderful home...that's still sad though.

Lily is 4 months and my youngest daughter is 3. Lily continuously chases her and hangs on to her clothes, (pant leg, night shirt, etc.) and growls when doing so. However, Lyndsey is the person I see her trying to cuddle up with. She doesn't act mean to Lyndsey, it just seems to me that Lyndsey is another pup to Lily. Lily does chew on everybody in the house but Lyndsey always thinks Lily is expressly biting her. Lily does growl, usually at me when she wants up or down, whatever the case is. I am not aware of her snapping or growling aggressively though. Just thought if I shared my similar experience it may ease your mind some.

I thank you all for your support, I have had a few e-mails for his adoption but have felt they were not good enough for him so I am still looking for a home for him if anyone knows someone who is looking for a Yorkie and could give him a loving home to be spoiled in please contact me. Thanks again.

I hate to hear this....

I was going to send my reply about the growling and all...I think it is just his (Sebastian's) age....that is a good time for pups to start trying to find their place in the "pack" and your little guy might be the first likely person for Sebastian to try to "boss around". I think with a little time and some VERY CONSISTENT work Sebastian will be fine!!!!!

But then the rest of the message......HOW AWFUL!!!!!! I would love to take Sebastian.......We currently have 1 very old, aging greyhound (not long for this world) and she has had a GREAT LIFE on our couch and in our yard!!!! she currently has a large tumor in her belly and the vet said she would never hold on through surgery and we are holding our breaths waiting for her to tell us when it is "the right time"...but she still enjoys eating and walking and laying out in the grass and shade!

We also have a 1 year old Chihuahua (Apple) who is just the neatest little girl.....I can honestly say I have the only "easy-going, laid-back" chihuahua in the world. But she has learned all this stuff from the old and gentle greyhound. She has taught Lil Bit to use the paper and NOT BARK...(much).!!!

And, finally, we have Lil Bit...now 6 months old and 3 pounds 10 oz.....a real "luv-bug"..the 2 little ones get along great and run and play like little race cars....sooooo funny!!

Other than that the house is pretty quiet. I do have 2 grand-kids...ages 2 and 5...both great with Lil Bit and Apple...but NEVER left unsupervised!

I will try to PM you.....I would have to drive down to get Sebastian if needed....I could NEVER put one on a plane!

And GOOD LUCK...you have a plate full to deal with....and I relly do hope you can somehow keep Sebastian.
