i think you'd be taking on quite a commitment It really depends alot on the dog itself and just how aggressive your resident dog is. we took in an animal aggressive foster dog about 5 years ago and in the beginning it wasn't easy. it took a lot of time and training to get her acclimated to this house but the dogs we had were not aggressive dogs. alot they worked out on their own also. keep in mind the things that can trigger aggressive responses .. such as food, toys etc. and keep on top of that and be patient ... it could work. it took us 6 months to work on it and now we have had salty for 5 years and she blended beautifully
Thanks for the advice. My older dog is dog aggressive with many things - food, toys, territory, and her momma (me!) so if I do this it will be a challenge! I MAY decide to foster at some point, since it breaks my heart to see animals in need, but I know it will be ALOT of work!
if you ever need specifics on what things we did just let me know. i cant guarantee they will work for you also but they were suggestions given to us with some adaptations for our own situation. good luck !
i ahve fosterd a couple dogs in the past and its sad to give them back but also a couple of them needed a lot of care and needed to be worked with a lot.. i no that some cant be with other dogs.. and some need training and a lot of love because of whatever there situation was, check it out and see if they have somthing for you that would work. it is always nice to help out and give a pet love and a good temporary home
