My parents have 2 dogs they are huskie mix (not sure whatelse). Bear is very outgoing and laid back. Indie is snappy and possessive. The last week he snapped at a few of the cats. He growls and he tried snapping at a few of them. I won't bring Marco the bunny around him as I'm afraid he may snap at him. My parents have seen him do this as well. I won't let him in the room to even look at the bunny or he's like a spoiled kid and push it even more. He is sitting outside my room and so my idiot sister let him in and here he growled at the bunny while he was in the cagg he. I had to literally pry him out of my room by his collar. I wasn't letting him go further I don't know if he would growl and snap at the bunny or not. But if he does it with cats who he is comfortable with. I told my parents about this behaviour and it needs to be fixed. They see nothong wrong with it and I do.

Do you not see that your sister will stop at nothing to kill your joy. You said previously that your dad wasn't too thrilled to have Marco come to stay at his house. You are fighting a losing battle unless you move out on your own and not allow your family access to your private space and your animals. Your sister is jealous and means you no good.

The dog's behavior does need to be fixed, or maybe he needs to be walked more or allowed outside more. I don't know the situation with how the dogs go outside etc.. however it sounds like the dog has hate in it's heart. He needs behavorial training, I agree.

Rabbits are prey animals. Dogs are being dogs. They will eat them in a heartbeat. My daughter had 2 parakeets and while we were gone our chuauhauh opened their cage and let them out while we were gone. When we came back there was one dying bird and nothing but feathers of the other one. Another dog we had was Baby. She killed a rabbit and guinea pig that we had. It's their natural behavior. You can't trust them to think like a reasonable human. Be careful because your rabbit will inadvertantly become a snack!
