i was laying in bed about 20 minutes ago.then i heard screaming then growling.then i heard when of my cats scream.dolla had turned on my mom and bit her pretty good.then she got him off of her then he went after one of my cats.he got ahold of him but then i got him away from him.then i reached for him then he got ahold of me.he cut me up pretty good.we are going to have dolla pts monday.mom wonts him gone NOW but everywhere is closed now.we are going to take our cat and have him checked to see if he is ok.
Sorry for what happened to your mom, you and your cat. I would do the same thing. But in the mean time, I would have dolla confined in a kennel at all time until Monday, so there is no more mishaps while dolla is still with you guys.
Has dollar done this before? Do you know why dolla would do that? Maybe it has something to do with what dolla went through before you had her. And she remembered or her instincks kicked in and she turned on your guys. Only you would have the answers why dolla got out of control.
he has always been aggressive but that was definentely something i never thought would happen.he is in the yard in the fence.im even scared to go feed him.my mom came with me to even put some food and water outside for him.he tried to bite me again then when i walked outside.
I'm so sorry for what happened, but you are doing the right thing. He's done this a few times already and you really can't afford to keep him around like this. I'm really sorry for you... I know exactly how you feel.
jgermansh, in my mind once agresive always going to be, it's just a matter of time before they strike.
You have it out side? Is in undre a shelter, where if it rains dolla will not get wet? Poor dollar don't even know what's coming her way.
Again, I'm really sorry for what's going on, but it's the best thing your doing for your family and for dolla, although she not going to be here on earth any longer.
I know what you mean by you were scared, I had an encounter where a little dot bit me, and I didn't wanted to know about little dogs or even big dogs for that matter any longer. It took me awhile to get over it, but I can deal with cats, have always had cats, well my mom has always allowed us to have cats.
I hope the weekend goes by fast for you so you can get this over with. I know you don't really want to put her to sleep, but it's the best thing, because there is no hope any longer. Hope all goes well with you and your mom, and ur kitty.
Bekah, I was thinking the same thing. Make sure the dog still gets the care he needs and let him at least live out his last day with somewhat happiness. Throw him a ball or a nice bone, some leftovers from dinner. Something snapped in the dog that made him that way, its not his fault.
I'm sorry you have to go thru this. The same situation actually happened with our cat. I was petting him one day (I was about 8) and he just lunged and bit my face. We took him to the vet and there was something wrong with chemicals in his brain. The best thing for everyone was for Kitty to be pts. The vet explained that he was biting because he was frustrated, he didn't hate us, he just had problems with his head that couldn't be fixed. Just remember this is the best thing that you can do for the both of you and Dolla will always love you.
WOW, normally I wouldn't say anything, but this time I have to. Dolla is about 9 months old right?, he never had formal training, and not alot of exercise from what I've read in previous posts, correct me if I'm wrong, and I apologize in advance if I am, but I personally don't think he got a fair chance at life. I had a friend in a similar situation, and the dog was given up to a trainer, and it turned out fine, away from it's previous living conditions, have you made any calls on the dogs behalf?
Yep, with proper training dogs can turn around completely.
Riley and Jazzys trainer was called one day about a 3 month old lab pup about to be put to sleep because he had food aggression and was aggressive with children. She was his last hope. Today Jack is a 2 year old 100lb lab that LOVES children, is competing in AKC agility, and has NO food aggression what so ever.
I agree with the previous two posters. Some dogs just need different chemistry, and better training in order to thrive. Before having him euthanized, make a few phone calls. Try to find someone that wouldn't mind taking him and working with him on his issues. I understand that you and your mom are afraid and you might be harboring a vendetta against him, but try to see the bigger picture. There is a life in your hands.
My dads dog Boone bit him and when we were taking him to the pound, a man stopped us and asked if he could take Boone. He had no kids, and he lived on an acreage As far as I know, Boone is still alive and is doing great.
What state do you live in? Maybe I can help you find a place that would take Dolla.
He did try to find a place for dolla last time he bit his mom, but they all said he would be PTS. He tried to work with dolla, but it has not seemed to work. I think I would do the same thing in their situation, I coud not re-home him and feel fin about it, most people interested in a dog like that are not going to give him a good home.
