Australian Shepherd Suddenly Aggressive: Nervous For Our Child

by Danielle
(New York)

My 3-year-old male Australian Shepherd all of a sudden started growling at my husband and I. He only growls when we try to get him to come in the house from playing outside. We tried to yell at him and he got very aggressive.

We had our first child this year and now I’m nervous he will go after the baby.

He was the sweetest boy until recently. His name is Captain America and he loves the baby and will not leave her side.
