I just took bobby to the vet to get a check over and have his ears cleaned they were dirty,is this normal behaviour for a young puppy??

She had to muzzle him to finish what she was doing,he was growling and trying to bite :(

She cleaned his ears up and i got him a combi flea and wormer drops,she said he was healthy :)

He screamed all the way there and all the way back and wouldnt keep still guess hes found his feet and doesnt like the car.

Any advise please I didnt have any of this with my other poodle?Or is it a standard thing and a boy thing?

You have to be careful rehoming dog's with behavior issues, reccently there has been a trend with people getting sued for dog's they rehomed with known behavior problems like biting. I'm glad that didn't happen to you, because like you said, you did warn her!

I think Bobby just needs some social skills and training and he shoud be A-OK. It isn't uncommon for dog's who aren't used to having their feet or ears messed with to growl or bite if they don't like it. It's the only way he has (or so he thinks anyway) to tell you he doesn't like something. Probably he did get away with murder so to speak in the past. Obviously that will stop now :) He just needs to learn a new set of rules and go from there.
