  1. The support on this thread is incredibly helpful, thank you all so much for taking the time to share your experiences, perspectives and advice. I feel much better about the incident, and your stories have helped shape my understanding of Jumper's needs and motivations. It wasn't a malicious attack, it was clear communication and a very important lesson for me. I'm happy to report that we are doing very well. Jumper is happy as a clam, and I am fully recovered. We've moved on swimmingly, but I feel much more prepared to avoid this kind of situation in the future. Thank you all again.
  2. Thanks @ramonaghan @greysmom @Time4ANap @PatricksMom for the thoughtful responses. It's reassuring to hear that his actions weren't deliberately aggressive, just communication that I need to hear and try to understand. I feel confident that there are simple changes I can make to avoid this from happening again in the future. Potential injury and pain is worth looking into as well... will make sure our vet takes a close look at him. Again, thank you, I appreciate your help.
  3. Hi all, I'm heartbroken and seeking advice (also new here.) My partner and I adopted Jumper 3 months ago. He's a 4 year old ex-racer. Everything has gone very smoothly -- we've both bonded with the dog, he's doing well with obedience training and we've spent a lot of quality time together. We love him to pieces, and he is very affectionate, cuddly and loving. He always wants to be right next to me (classic velcro dog.) Over the weekend, Jumper bit me (or rather, nipped me pretty good) in the face. I have a black eye and one puncture near my tear duct where his tooth made contact.
