I'm 14 and for the longest time I've studied and worked with k9 officers and dogs and all sorts of professional working dogs. For the longest time I've wanted a puppy of my own to train and compete in french ring sports in the future and to practice pursuing the work of a tactical dog trainer. My dad knows this, and told me about an "amazing" dutch shepherd malinois mix. Being my favourite breeds I was ecstatic to be getting the puppy. He asked to pay for a portion of the pup and I spent all of the money that I had at the time to contribute to buying this puppy. We went and picked up the puppy and i already could tell something was off. The dog stood completely still and just looked around, and when picking it up it just froze up and hung in my arms. Hes supposed to be 10 weeks old yet he was thin and rat looking and his ears weren't erect yet. He looked like an underweight patterdale terrier. I just assumed that the dog was tired or something. We got home and the dog did not act at all like a malinois. It was skittish and showed no interest at all in treats or toys, which I was completely disappointed by because I was planning on protection training and to start they need to be very toy motivated. The dog had no idea what a leash was a ran from it as I tried walking it outside. Over the night. It violently thrashed and squirmed in its crate attacking the bars. My family (who know nothing about dogs or dog training other than knowing how to pet a dog) said "dogs cant be crate trained that's how dogs become aggressive" and told me to take him out. He then proceeded to run around the house having accidents everywhere and barking at imaginary shapes on the floor. I was up all night following him around trying to keep him contained but when I'd get too close hed eaither run with his tail between his legs or turn around and charge me. I know how to treat dogs but my family does not and they are completely ignoring me when I tell them what they can and cant do to a working dog. They want a family dog, which I understand, but this is not a family dog. It is a working dog. But this morning when I tried to get the puppy to play or learn things like sit and his name, he had no interest in the food and would barely even try to learn anything. Does anyone have any tips? Did I just spend all my money on a horrible untrainable dog? Or is there something wrong with the dog? Or is he not even a malinois and will I be unable to accomplish my goal?
