Social network for pugs and their people.
While growing up, I (Cherokee) had the best big brother in the whole wide world! Not even John Boy Walton could hold a candle to my brother. Dogs & children to this day, LOVE my brother Doug. Well, he come to visit us earlier to help Mike put in a new electrical box, and he was trying to get Shini to come to him, and of course she was shy, so I pick her up & place her in my brothers lap & he started talking to her & petting her at the same time & she went BALISTIC on him!! It was like watching a dog that was in a horrific dog fight, that is how mad she was. Mike & I were shocked & immediately took her and calmed her down & crated her during the visit w/brother. we could tell it hurt my brother, as like I said, chilren & animals always take to him. But what I guess I am wanting to know is, is this normal?? I thought pugs loved everyone. The only thing is, is that Shini is very protective over Mike & I, but never have we witnessed this kind of behavior from her. What could be going on? We are very concerned. Any input would be greatly appreciated. We are thanking God, that this was my 6ft.6 brother & not a little child she attacked.
