I don't know where to start, I have a just over 1-year-old American bully, she is the cutest thing ever, amazing smile and loves a cuddle. unfortunately, over the last few months, things have gone downhill. She has not had much socialisation with other dogs and this has had unforeseen consequences. we have 2 dogs in the family, and she gets along with them fine, however, a few months ago we tried to introduce her to a new dog and she snapped and snarled, scaring my mother and our friend who owns the dog. About 5 months ago she was out in a feild and hurt her leg, this meant she was housebound for a few weeks recovering. no interaction with other dogs during this time. We decided to get help from a dog trainer and it was going really well. the problem lies around new dogs, if she sees a dog in the street she barks and snarls, this obviosly scares most people, while she is kind hearted she is not a small dog, very stocky. Recently she has had to have curiciate ligimate surgey on her back legs, and this means she has not been out, and again no interaction with other dogs. when ever we go to the vets she is really vocal. a few days ago she went to the vets and while barking at another dog she bit my mother leg. Not a nasty bite but enough to draw blood and break the skin. Unfortuenly we are not in a position to be able to care for her, i do not want to give her up, however with my working hours i am not home for 15 hours a day and it would be unfair to leave her alone, i cant give her the love and time she needs. My mother is contumplating having her put down, she is scared that this is the start of a downward spiral in her behaviour, i dont think this is the case. she needd a home where she can run and play and with sommone who can give her the time she needs. I have 3 nephews and my mother does not want the coming to the house, i have to say she has never ever shown any sign of agression to people in our house, she loves the kids. she plays tug and brings toys. When she is out with me i do not see the same behaviours in her, nd i dont think it is a lack of control or abitly to manage her that my mother is stuggeling with just the shock of the events and heath circumstances she has. (my mother not the dog) What i am getting to is i need help, i dont want her put down. it is breaking my heart, i am finding it hard to find somewhere or somone who can take her, save her, let her live. I live in devon and i have contacted some shelters and rescuse centres down here but they dont have a place for her. i dont mind traveling if that is the only way to save her. Can anyone help me, provide me with some contacts, give me adivce on what to do. i am on my last straw. Thank you.
