Sibling rivalry is very common in dogs, regardless of whether they are littermates or not. Some of the main instigators of altercations between siblings include toys, treats, or even competing for attention. And the dynamics between two dogs of the same sex are generally harder to work out.
4 yr. old Bella (pictured) and her sister Leona are the perfect example of two really sweet sisters who just couldn’t seem to get along. Even throwing a piece of food on the floor could start a squabble between them. It could be that their personalities were just too different. Leona is bigger, bolder, and more self-assured, while Bella is considerably smaller, timid, and more insecure. Now that Bella and Leona are separate, it is plain to see that these are individually very loving, loyal, smart, and obedient dogs! It is very well possible that they could be incorporated into a family with another dog – just like with people, it’s all about chemistry.
If you are looking for a quiet, gentle dog that deserves a chance at a better situation, please consider the possibility of saving a life and rescuing one of these sisters today. Please visit or inquire about Bella right here at The Humane Society of Kent County, MD. We’re open Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays through Saturdays 11am to 4pm, and adoption applications can be filled out online. Appointments to meet Leona must be made through Talbot Humane in Easton, MD.
