I have three dogs, two Rottweilers and a JRT we rescued last year. I also have another Rottweiler puppy coming I hope in June this year... so, the dilemma I have is, a dog we look after and have done for a few years now, is needing a new home. There is a massive problem though. He was rescued a few years ago from NCDL as he was found to be living ferrel with a large number of other dogs in woods and fields. His new owners brought him to me for training and socialising, he was scared of the world in general and would happily just lie down away from anyone or anything. Over the years, he has become much better and even got to the stage where he enjoyed his weekly agility class, but had to be kept at a small distance from other dogs. Fast forward 4 years, his human mum was diagnosed 2 years ago with a type of terminal Cancer and now his dad has been diagnosed with another type of terminal Cancer. They have both doted on this dog and he enjoys his short stays with us when his owners used to go away for their holidays. The dog tends to be very possessive with things he believes are "his" and especially my husband, who feeds him when he's here, and walks him. The couple have asked us to have him when they die. After a long and serious discussion between me and my husband, we sadly told them we couldn't due to his problem of attacking other dogs if they get too close to him, or pick up a toy that he was looking at. They said they understood and would try elsewhere... The couple have left him here with us while they go on their final holiday together. The dog will be here 10 days and now my husband is beginning to waiver a little bit, saying we could "manage" him. But in my heart, I truly believe this dog should be the only dog in a home, it's what he's used to now, he's never had to share his people before and it's going to be exciting enough with a new puppy coming soon and with an existing stroppy JRT. So, anyone got any thoughts / ideas / suggestions etc. I know he could go back to the NCDL but, I'd rather he didn't. Sorry for War and Peace.
