    Tikeya Got beat up.... (pics- not suitable for weak tummys)

    This morning Tikeya and Baby were out in the backyard playing, while my mom and dad sat on the sundeck. Baby dugg up a dentibone, and Tikeya wanted it.. So she went topick it up, and Baby did at the same time.. That was it, the fight was on.. Tikeya didnt hurt baby at all, she pretty much submissed right away.
    My dad split them up in a matter of seconds,
    but it was too late, Tikeya was very badly hurt..
    And baby had a little limp.
    I rushed Tikeya to the Vet, and she went into surgery.
    4.5 hours/and a couple hundred $$$ later, she is home..
    Shes super groggy, but shes expected to heal really well.
    here are some pics..













    (Baby was acting all pathetic when Tikeya got home from the vet)

    I hope she heals up quickly. Fights are nasty things!

    Females are famous for this kind of stuff. Two females will fight til they kill each other, doesn't matter if one submits or not. That tends to matter to males, but not females. I've found my girls tend to hold grudges too, much longer than the boys. If I were you, I'd keep them completely seperated at all times from now on.
    If you are lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you must find the courage to live it.

    Sorry to hear about the dog fight. Those are huge looking wounds. I agree with Glacier I would keep those dogs apart. Good thoughts & prayers sent Tekyia's way for quick healing.

    Yikes! Poor Tikeya!!!!

    Yup, the two girls will have to be separated whenever there's food, treats, or anything else involved.

    Bad girl, Baby!

    Yeah they are'nt as bad as they look.
    They are long (as you can see), but not deep.. the vet was really worried that they would just keep ripping and getting longer if not dealt with.

    I am so sorry, to hear about Tikeya.
    Poor girl.
    It is a shame you have to separate them.

    I remember when Rocky and Sheba went at it a couple of times.
    Lucky I was their and grabbed Rocky before he could
    hurt her. After that I took everything out of the back yard and in
    the house they could possibly fight over. I kept them separated
    for about 6 months when I was not home to supervise them.
    I stopped letting them rough house with each-other too.
    Eventually I was able to keep them together unsupervised.
    Till this day, I never have anything laying around they can fight over
    including me.
    (of course Sheba is so old now)
    I was told early on by a woman who ran an Akita rescue,
    that dogs never forget and once they have a drag out fight
    it is rare they can be together again.
    I hope that is not the case with you.

    It was a fight over a prized possession namely food, not over dislike for one another. If they got along well before there is no reason for major concern as long as no food treats are laying around to cause another fight and even then chances are it won't happen because, Tikeya learned an important lesson today and will never likely try to take food from Baby again. Dogs can have tiffs and it is over within seconds, if the loser got knocked down a notch in their pack order they might be acting warier for a few days, showing more submissiveness as a repectiveful gesture of a lower ranking member to the winner but rarely is there lasting anomosity, if there is it is usually caused by the humans favoring the lower ranking dog. I can understand worrying though, when I fostered I always used muzzles on all the dogs my own included(to make sure none had the advantage over the other) until I was absolutely positive that all were getting along. Over the years I have had dog disputes especially when a new dog is brought into the home, especially when I had one very dominant foster, or my own very dominant female who like to ket new dogs know she was the boss within the first 15 mnutes of meeting, so far muzzles have prevented any trips to the ER. One of the best muzzles available is what is called the italian muzzle, it is similiar to a greyhound muzzle allowing the dog to be able to eat and drink with it on and most important pant easily or vomit safely if they are ill unlike many other commercial muzzles, it is lighter in weight and more flexible than the greyhound muzzles. Greyhound muzzles are used not because the dogs are agressive but they can be competitive and rough play can easily result in tearing their very thin skins, so minimizes possible damage. Here is an example of the italian muzzle http://www.dogmuzzle.com/itbaspoldogm1.html

    personally I dont really like the idea of muzzeling the dogs.
    We'll just keep them seperated when food/treats are around, or in the backyard. If worse comes to worse, and Tikeya cant find common ground with Baby.. Then her and I will have to leave.
