This Jack Russell Terrier who was brought in a little over two weeks covered in bite punctures has mostly recovered from his injuries and is doing quite well physically. It's harder to say what kind of long term impact the fight he was in has had on his behaviour.
When he meets with other dogs, he seems quite friendly and if the other dog is friendly as well, then no problem. But if the other dog gives off any negative signals, this guy immediately responds with snarls and aggressive barks. Can't tell if he's always been like this - and maybe this is how he into a fight in the first place - or if this is a recently learned protective behaviour from having been beat up so bad.
Either way, it may take some focused effort on the part of any owner before this guy is completely relaxed around other dogs but lying in someone's lap, he's affectionate and content and that takes no effort at all.
