A few days ago, my neighbor's dog was biting through our fence at my two dogs and my oldest turned around and snapped at my youngest. My youngest but Mason back and it escalated from there into a serious fight. It lasted for five minutes but Copper (my youngest) managed to tear Mason's ear a bit (Mason is fine.) and Mason injured Copper's eye. His eye is fine and he is still eating and drinking and able to walk and his eye doesn't look infected nor is it releasing anything unusual like blood or anything. However, since the fight, Copper hasn't been his usual self. Copper has always been a happy dog but for the past few days he has been... mopey? He isn't as playful or willing to eat his favorite treats. He usually sleeps with my mom in her bed but he's been crashing on the couch and he seems to be more careful of his movements around Mason. I'm wondering if perhaps it's due to his injuries or is it due to the fact that his spirit has been broken. I think it's important for you to know that ever since Copper turned four he is been picking more and more fights with Mason. Mason has won each fight and each time Copper becomes a bit more timid, I should say. Any advice?
