well i think we have made a decision on what to do with dollar he turned on my mom a few nights ago and he went for and grabed her neck and it was hard to get him to let go then today he just went crazy on 2 of our cats and i honestly think he would have killed them both if i hadnt been there this is not the 1st time he has turned on us we called around to a few trainers and rescues and they all said the same thing that is sounded like he was just a mean dog and it was best to pts we really dont wont to but he is a dangerous dog and gets meaner by the day if anybody has suggestions we are open to them
What hope???? this is a dog we're talking about, not a mentally deranged human..You fix the human, destroy the dog. There are too many good ones to try to fix the bad ones. Go get a sweet puppy or rescue dog who will appreciate your love
he is a german shepherd/akita we knew that those can both be aggressive breeds but we have had both i have always had german shepherds and i have NEVER had one like this i called his vet and they said when we were ready to just bring him in and they would do it
Its sad to say but some dogs just cant be trusted and I hope you have peace about this and do not have guilt. All you can do is try with an already adult dog. That is one dog with alot of issues and it would take alot of time to work through them. You cant put your family in danger to do so. Ill say a prayer for you both.
If you think I was rude, maybe I'm not believing that someone would have to ask when the dog has already gone for the throat. Maybe the mental image of her burying her beloved mother has something to do with it.Sometimes you must be a little stronger to drive the point home....

and sometimes there is a thing called tact.
Jgermansh...sorry about this. sometimes you have make this call. It's tough. I do not really know what context the dog is biting in. so, I cannot offer any advice. But I can say sometimes, we have to make hard choices with our dogs. I really feel compassionate to the choice you must make. Sorry
we have made the decision that we are going to give him 1 mnth he is getting neutered tom.adn the vet said it will be 1 mnth before everything is out of him so we well go from there on what to do with him
I think that is a good decision. Hopefully the neutering will help. Until you know for sure, I would treat this dog as unstable and take preventative measures to insure that another attack does not occur.
I'm sorry but this dog has used up all his chances as far as I am concerned.
I once had a rescue doberman that seemed to be sweet, we got him as a full grown male, going on 3 years old.
One day my wife came home from work and just happened to be in the middle of her cycle, she walked in the door and was attacked by the dog. Not just a nip, a full attack, he drew blood through a winter coat. She managed to close the dog in the bedroom and called me at work. That night when I got home that dog and I walked out behind the barn and I had a 357 with me.
I love dogs, have had dobermans for the past 30 years, but there was no room in my home for a dog that can not be trusted with my family. I didn't wait, second guess myself. Dam you are talking about your family for heaven sakes.
