Hmmmmm, maybe you should hang on to Alondra for awhile - pending Mia's health issues?

Hate to say it - and really hope that Mia is fine, but sounds like there may be an issue. :(
I was going to say the same thing. Might ought to get Mia thoroughly checked out before letting Alondra go. It would suck to have neither one of them.

No way!
I'd be keeping Alondra and well... a LGD that is growling at it's human partner... nope.
Recently a friend of mine had her LGD go after her, it was sudden and terrifying. He was biting her head and she was screaming for him to get off. He had gotten sick and was treated, it appeared he was starting to have neurological issues. A goat kid was born and she went to retrieve it and that was it. She is not certain if the dog thought she was a stranger or not. She had a hoodie and hat on.
Regardless, he was starting to display the behaviors similar to what you mentioned above.
Never a mean bone in his body and loved people. Very sad, but at that point dangerous.

This dog had been through 2 tick born illnesses eventually he was having bouts where his neck was having issues. That is when behaviors started.

From a article I just found about epilepsy in dogs.

Drug-naïve dogs showed an increase in the behavior factors Fear/Anxiety, Defensive Aggression, and Abnormal Perception. In dogs receiving antiepileptic medication, there were still increases in Fear/Anxiety and Abnormal Perception, but no longer in Defensive Aggression. Additional increases were observed in Abnormal Reactivity, Attachment Disorder, Demented Behavior, and Apathetic Behavior. Pharmacoresistant dogs had larger increases in Controlling Aggression, Abnormal Perception, and Demented Behavior than drug responders.

I am not sure how much more stress I can take.

I’m sorry Babs! I’m at my breaking point too. Things were better but my buttons are being pushed and the anxiety is becoming overwhelming. There isn’t enough of me to go around. All I can say is I’m praying and :hugs:hugs!!!

Yes, get a glass of wine and a hot soaking bath. You need to relax and clear your head. Then you need to make a serious decision and it won't be easy. If Mia has health issues that are affecting her behaviors and making her dangerous, then maybe she just made your decision for you. I sure wouldn't want to be in your shoes. I know you love her, but please don't ignore the signs that you are seeing.
