Aussie and Border Collies?
Recently I added a 3 1/2 month Aussie female and 3 1/2 month Border Collie female to my home. I have had them 2 weeks. The Aussie is very easy going, mellow and has a sensitive sweet personality. The Border Collie is very playful, high strung and somewhat nippy and aggressive over food bowls and toys. She seems to be trying to be the alpha. The Aussie seems upset when I discipline the Border Collie's behavior. Yesterday I made a mistake and tossed some food to the Border Collie. The Aussie who just had some came over sniffing around the Border Collie and the Border Collie reacted very aggressive, she didn't hurt the Aussie but it was nerve racking to say the least.
Can this work or should I try to find the Border Collie a new home? Will the Border Collie ruin the sweet nature of the Aussie or traumatize the Aussie?
Also, the Aussie seems to have a bladder issue? She leaks when excited around the house. Will she outgrow this or is there anything I can do?
