    13th of February 2011, my 3 year old German Shepherd was put to sleep.

    He had bitten somebody badly, however he showed no signs of aggression before the attack, after the attack. He showed no signs of even attempting to attack, he just lunged.

    I believe highly that he had inbred behavioural problems, towards his family he was an amazing dog and i will defend him until the day i die. He was everything a family could wish for, he just wasn't ok in the head.

    Later, after looking at his 5 generation family tree i found he had been inbred 3 times. His father Troy had been put to sleep for a surprise attack on his owner and had his ear bitten off.

    I want to save our german shepherds and stop this from happening, it breaks my heart.

    God that's awful. I don't know where you would even start to rectify this problem, however, I just want to say that must have been very hard for you to place this post and I am sorry for your loss.

    Our dog,Buster ,has Alzheimers-(I ,too didnt know dogs-and cats could suffer from it)
    Its so sad - we lost our other dog ,Lulu,at the end of January and miss her so much
    We had had them both since they were 3 mths old and Buster doted on her-he is a very nervous dog and he relied on her so much-would cry and howl if she wasnt there.
    Now he doesnt even realise shes gone
