Hey everyone. Feeling more than a bit stressed about my rescue grey Jack. I've had him for about 9 weeks and I KNOW that's a short length of time, but a few things have come up that make me quite uncomfortable. Firstly, when I got Jack I commented to the rescue that he was absolutely huge (definitely top percentile of greys) and that this was a bit of a concern for me. The idea was that he was a such a sweet and shy boy that his size shouldn't be a problem.

He, however, hates our 2 cats. We have read all the advice on how to introduce him and fully understand that he may never be cat safe.

I'm not too worried a
I've reposted this here as i intitially wrote it in introductions and realised in was in the wrong section. (Sorry) Please help. We took Al to a pub yesterday where he met a few terriers, unfortunately he keeps trying to lunge at them (And a cat but we expected that.) Luckily the other owner was very understanding and we tried several introductions before we called it quits. He allowed the dog closer each time and even let on sniff his butt. But as soon as it went near his head he lunged forward. He’s also done this at other dogs whilst on his walks. He's great with children and c
