Please help! We adopted/rescued our lovable cockapoo 2 years ago when she was 11 months old. We have 4 children and she was great with them from the start. We noticed that she didn't do so well with new men that came into the house... She would bark and growl. We assumed that she must have been mistreated by her original owner (a man). a couple of times she growled at our 6 year old boy because he was being a little too rough with her. We made it his job to feed her and that was quickly fixed. Now, fast forward 2 years and all of a sudden she is starting to growl at children (not ours) that she comes in contact with. Children that she has known for a long time! I cannot have this! She has even gotten nippy with them. I'm not sure how to handle this. I am looking for any information! I will be calling the vet this week as well, but I stumbled upon this site and hoped that someone might have some insight. She is our baby and we love her dearly. Help!!!!
