On the left is a picture of our boxer, Roo, and pitbull, Loki. Dogs of the same pack will lay back to back in order to protect each other. It shows a vulnerability that they normally won't entrust to members outside of their homes. Roo and Loki adore each other. They sleep together, play together, will share toys and groom each other. Basically they are together 24/7 and it is really cute to see.
Loki and Bear, featured on the right, are a different story. They are the only two males in our pack but they don't play together and usually have nothing to do with each other, but when told to go to the same "place" they still acknowledge that they are a pack and will protect each other.
A lot of times people think dogs living in the same home have to be "best friends" and do everything together. In reality the only thing they really have to do is exist peacefully together. If they get along, great! If they choose not to interact in play together or have much to do with each other that is alright too. Dogs all have different personalities and aren't always going to like every other dog or person they meet, as long as they are polite in their interactions with those they don't care for that is all we can ask of them.
