Our family had to rehome our doggy that we had for 5 years, do to him biting my 3 year old daughter. We got the dog before the kids were here and then we had 2 girls in one year, which I think took a toll on him. He was great fr the most part when awake, he knew to walk away 90% of the time when the kids bothered him, but when he was tired or asleep, he would get upset if someone touched him(even if it was my husband or myself) The last time, my daughter went to hug him after he was sleeping. He hugged his face from behind, and he turned and bit. It was a pretty bad bit that lead to stitches. This happened just over a month ago, we decided to rehome him to a young man that has no kids. And he is doing great with him!! But we still have the emptiness of no dog in our home. When is it ok to get another puppy? Is only a month to soon? Is it safe to have another dog, if we get him as a puppy where he will be raised around our girls, meaning it will hopefully be less likely for the net dog to bite? I know people will judge us, since we just gave our dog away, but we miss having a bond with a dog!
