I have a male boston terrier who is a year old, and a male Rottweiler puppy who is 4 months old. At the moment they are the greatest of friends and play together and sleep together. Will they possibly keep this bond or what are the chances of the Rottie getting aggressive towards the Boston.
I love my dogs equally, they are both allowed inside the home and both get lots of affection form us and playtime.
A lot depends on the individual personalities and temperaments of your dog/pup. Generally if a pup is brought up with another dog, then they form a bond and will get along without any serious problems, even when adult. But if there are going to be issues, it’s more likely when you have two dogs of the same sex.
It’s no more likely that the Rottweiler will ‘become aggressive towards the Boston’ than it is that the Boston will become aggressive to the Rottie. They’re both males, and as the Rottweiler pup grows the older dog may feel a need to challenge, or to dominate him. However, as I said, a lot depends on their personalities and interaction, this may never happen. And even if it does, if you correct it firmly and don’t allow one to bully, or dominate, the other they should learn.
I’d strongly suggest that you make sure that both dogs are neutered as this will reduce the chances of conflict. Plus always make sure there are plenty of toys, treats and love to go around so that they don’t get jealous of each other. As long as you are aware of the potential for conflict and are pro-active and consistent in your corrections (should they become necessary) then I don’t think you have too much to worry about.
Best of luck with both your dogs.
