aggressive chihuahua

17 years ago

We adopted a pretty 5 year ols chihuahua in a Rescue Shelter. She was brought to us in the shelter and though we were strangers, she was quiet and submissive and eventually had her sit on my lap at the Rescue Shelter. We brought her home and had no problem with her behavior.After a month with us we had some friends visit us and also we had service men come into the house and the dog became very aggressive, barked and began to bite at the strangers shoes. What caused this change. Was she abused in her younger life? Did she deveoped a new trait to protect us? What can we do, we are in our late 80's, cannot travel to a dog trainer? We will not give her up. Will appreciate all information and thanks.
