Over the last few months he's become more and more aggressive, biting, attacking our other dog and even attacking my fiance when she tries to put him in bed and trying to bite her on the face. He's a shih tzu x poodle, so his aggression isn't a real concern in regards to actually injuring us, but I'm over it.
I just let him out to go to the toilet, then let him back in, he hops on the couch next to me and he starts growling at nothing, then I try to pat him and he tries to attack my hand. And not the nice kind, but growling and snarling as if he really wants to kill me, and it's not the first time. It's wearing rather thin. I get he's old, but this is beyond a joke.
That sucks...have you tried asking one of those animal behaviourists to try and work out what the problem is? I know some little dogs get a 'big dog' complex, often there's a change in circumstances which lead to a change in behaviour.
Personally I think of dogs like kids/children and would never think of putting them down unless they're really sick/dying or have attacked someone.
