Hello yes I want to discuss my Pekingnese behavoir. I adopted him on 02-18-2012 from the local Animal Shelter. He is about 2-3 years old. However  he very cute, playful and loveable. But...... When I pick him up he lets me however when i am putting him down, he gets aggressive to the point of biting me and then he will go in a circle biting his tail. Does anyone have any ideas. Someone mentioned it might be anxiety separation. How do I deal with it. Any suggestions for me.

does sound like anxiety, how much of his background do you know?  If he has a favorite toy or something like that try distracting him as soon as you put him down but don't forget to praise him each time he has went for the toy.  when he starts playing with the toy make sure it is one he can play by himself usually the ones with treat rewards nside, leave the room or just out of his site a little longer each tome have patience he should come around.  GOOD LUCK
