My 7 month male shih tzu is scared of our new 1.5 month male malinois. The malinois has 'boxing/pawing' tendencies when he's feeling playful & his 'whiskers' are kinda sharp which may be why my shih tzu may want to protect his eyes. Is there a way for them to become friends?

Hey, I suggest that you put the pup behind the door to the bathroom, and let your shih tzu smell him from the other side. This way they can smell of one another and not be able to play to rough. If your mal is 6 weeks you have a PROBLEM. Working dogs such as mals and shepherds learn bite inhibition and also how to play from their litter mates. This happens though week seven. I am sad to hear the breeder let him go so soon!! You need to seek the advise of your breeder/trainer. If you are in the birmingham Al area I would love to do a free consult!
