So my mate who lives at mine with my mum got a pair of hamsters and one of our two dogs keeps whining behind his room door and barking. My mum and mate say "it's fine, she's excited there's new animals."
Well, I personally think the dog's instincts are setting in and she views them as a threat in our own home. She's a shih szu (not stereotypical of being dangerous) but keeps walking around with her tail down, whining at all of us. When she was in front of the hamster cage on the bed she followed the hamsters with her eyes and had an occasional growl and clawed the cage then I think she tried to burrow her head under the cage to knock it off the bed.
But I'm no veterinarian and I feel an experienced or expert opinion is best. So what'd you guys have to say? Is this a sign of something bad or is she just getting used to there being two new tiny faces?
