Will Aussie Father Harm The Pups?
by Scott P.
Mom on right; Bandit (Dad) on left.
We are anticipating a litter of puppies soon from our Aussie couple, first litter ever for us.
Mom is about 45lbs, 2 yrs old. Dad (named Bandit) is 7 months old and already 50lbs. Vet thinks he will be a 65 pounder when full grown.
My question: Is there any possibility that Bandit would harm his own new-born babies? He likes to kill small mammals, like possum, moles, rats, etc. He really is a very sweet dog otherwise, very loving and affectionate.
Does nature instill in Aussie Daddies not to harm the pups? Or do you have to separate them?
