Dogs can show signs of jealousy when a new pet is added to the household. It is important that you give the Chihuahua just as much attention as you are giving the new puppy.
When a new puppy comes in, a lot of times the older dog does not get as much attention as the new addition does. One thing that you can try is to play with the Chihuahua first. This will give her some time alone with you and may help to decrease the jealousy. Another thing that you can try is to have someone play with the Chihuahua at the same time that someone else is playing with the Jack Russell.
If these don’t work, I recommend that you talk to your veterinarian about the concerns that you have. They can give you some recommendations that are more specific to your situation.
