Lost our 11 yr old male Golden last spring and got an 8 wk old female two and half months ago. Puppy born by Cesarian; mother almost died and was unavailable to pups for several weeks. Was nursed by another female Golden then placed back with mother after several weeks. Breeder had to concentrate on ministering to sick mom with little time to socialize 7 pup litter (2 females and 5 males). At 8 weeks males were huge and the 2 females were quite small. Although bonded to us our pup is very stubborn and extremely independent. She won't bite if we take her food and move it or take away a toy. But, if we try to put on a leash to take her outside, she'll try to bite us. If we put her in her crate she tries to bite us even though we feed her in there. She doesn't draw blood as often and bites a little more softly recently. it's almost as if she has a "mean streak" we've never seen in a Golden before and we've known several. We know biting in puppies is common but this feels "over the top." Any thoughts re: what to do and how to help her?
