Hello Sharon, and thank you for replying. I mean ‘cat like’ in the sense that she is quite ‘prickly’ or ‘edgy’ around dogs.
I take your point about the Bishon Frise being difficult to read, he needed a haircut and so looked like a ball of wool. I have thought about this before, and she does have problems with French Bulldogs and large heavy-coated breeds such as Newfoundlands. Not so much German Shepherds or Huskies.
I think the lack of early socialisation has definitely had a negative effect.
The incident on Sunday, just caught me by surprise. She shot straight across the grass and attacked the dog. I will say, it probably sounded a lot worse than it was, what with all the growling and yelping. I think that’s what panicked the other dog owner. If it had been just me and the dogs, probably wouldn’t have been half as bad.
