Default question about beagle aggression

Hi All. New here and want to say hello to everyone.

Anyway, I have a question someone might be able to help me with. I just rescued a 5-6 yr old female Beagle named Bella (my first Beagle). She is hard-headed/stubborn but what beagle isnt. I also have a 3 year old male american fox hound who is a wonderful dog and very well trained. Today after taking a hike for around 2 hours, we got back to the house and out neighbors dog "Daisy" came over to play with her best friend Cappy, my foxhound. While they were playing tug-o-war with a toy,play growling like they do, the female beagle walked over and "scuffled" with my fox hound,growling and nipping him on the neck. It only lasted 2 seconds as I broke it up. About 2 minutes later, Cappy and Daisy started playing again like they do, play growling,etc and the Beagle does it again, targeting Cappy again. It was not a full fledged dog fight but more of a scuffle with me breaking up both incidents and the Beagle going on her back in the submissive pose once I intervened/raised my voice. Why do you think she is showing this behavior? She has only done this today,while the hound was playing with neighbors dog and it seems as though the play growling triggered this, as normally they both get along but dont play together for some reason. Cappy, the fox hound, is the most laid back dogs I have ever had and NEVER has a problem with other dogs and never has showed aggressive "energy" to others a matter of fact Cappy has met many dogs that the owners say would be aggressive but for some reason "take" to Cappy, the happy-go-lucky goof ball that he is. Bella,the beagle is new to me, as I got her 2 weeks ago, but has been exposed to other dogs with little problems and positive encounters. I dont want this to happen again and need to figure out what is triggering her to do this. Thanks for any help.

I would keep doing what you are doing by intervening in a strong voice and mannerism. It doesn't seem like major agression, you would know it for sure if it was! My girls had some knock-down, drag-out fights with blood...that is a more major issue to deal with.

Since Bella is new to you, she is still finding her way in her pack family. She may have had some agressive dogs around her in her past. Also, if she was just recently spayed, she can still be feeling "off".

The dogs that will be around her like your dogs and your neighbors sound like a good group for her to be around and learn to get along with.

Default Beagle

I also have a 5-6 yr old rescue. Her name is Beagle (so I don't forget).

She exhibits some of the same behavior and I think with her it is jealousy. someone is in her turf and she is protecting it.

Default New Pup

Hello everyone,
I have a new 11 week old pup that we have added to our family 3 weeks ago. We are having a little problems with separation anxiety. She seems to chew or drool so bad that any toys we leave for her are soaked when we return home after short times away. Has anyone experienced this and any ideas on how to soothe her while we are gone?

Hi everyone. We have two adorable 7 month old brothers from the same littler. We have never had a problem with aggression until we introduced the Kong to them last week. Both were at it like as though they were about to kill each other. I would say that the whole neighborhood would have heard them. I couldn't separate them even raising my voice didn't help. I eventually had to hose them down and then they settled. But since then they have had their moments of growling at each other where one always ends up in the submitting position. They have hurt each other where they have both had scratches and bleeds. We are at a halt and very worried that they might not get along. Any suggestions?
