I have owned Australian Cattle Dogs for 37 years, aka blue (or red) heelers. I find that if they take a set against another dog you won't be able to change it. It could very well escalate into a fight to the death, especially if Tucker isn't backing off. There is also the risk that one day Millie may decide to join in the fight. I had a friend think she could let her two males work out a pecking order and the eventual, (inevitable IMO ) fight was so severe that after trying everything else to get them apart, she had to knock her red boy out with a shovel to get him off the other dog. That fight triggered a second fight between two females and she was home alone, so it would have been a nightmare. Your experience with Nox should have prepared you for what might happen this time.
