Good luck with your baby. I also know how difficult it is to live with an ill-tempered pd. Our first pet pd., Beefcake was like a Tazmanian Devil. He was supposed to be neutered, but I'm convinced he was not. I took the book; Prairie dog Pets with me because it has specific information, just for vets, on anesthetics, dosages, etc. She apparently did not even look at it. We believe she saw this as an opportunity to poke around in a different species. She cut him from stem to stern, & acomplished nothing in the process. His temperment did not change a bit. He still went through the unpredictable mood swings. He still wanted to eat us alive, every winter, especially my husband, & son. Bless his heart, Beefcake never was a "pet". He was like Dr. Jekyl- Mr. Hyde. We still loved him dearly, & miss him terribly. We had to have him put to sleep about 2 years ago, due to health problems, caused by bad advice.
I am so glad we didn't give up on pds. as pets, because of this one bad experience. We never would have known the love these adorable creatures have to give. While Beefcake was still with us, we got an adult female from a couple who couldn't keep her anymore. These 2 were total opposites. My Snuggle-Bug is the sweetest animal I have ever known. She loves my husband, son,& future daughter-in-law, but I am her world. She absolutely lives for our 'snuggle time'. It is very theraputic for me too. The richest man on the planet doesn't have enough money to buy this little girl! I thank God, fate, or whatever brought us together, every day. I have never felt love like the love of a prairie dog. We have several now & every one of them are so precious.
We adopted an adult male, a while back, & were afraid he would be a terror in the winter, especially towards my husband. He was abused by a man (if you want to call him that). He only acted like he might bite a time or two, so far. He adores my husband! I'm so glad he came to us. Now he knows he can trust one man at least.
Anyway keep reminding yourself not to take it personally when your baby gets ugly. It's just the hormones. It will pass.
