Hi everyone. I'm in need of advice. Myself, my husband and our four year old daughter have two dogs, Oisìn and Aretha. We rescued Oisìn two years ago, he was skin and bone and was found straying in the mountains. He was anxious from the beginning but had so much love and affection to give. The first month he was loving all the comforts and wouldn't have lifted his head at another dog walking by. Then we started to notice he was becoming more anxious and aggressive towards other dogs and men. He tried to attack one with a stick, that's when we knew he had serious issues. So for the next year we kept an eye on him, kept him close when we walked and were cautious. Then it started becoming harder and I couldn't control him when out. So we got a dog trainer who taught is the proper way to hold him etc. He's a very strong big dog, the trainer thinks he may be crossed with Kerry blue and hence the aggression. We were dealing with the new way of handling him and it's been going well however he's began snapping at people who love him and a couple of days ago got his jaws round my arm when I tried to get him out for a pee. I know he sounds like a psycho but he's the most loving dog and it breaks my heart staring at his eyes because he's got issues that I just don't know how to help. The trainer is suggesting we re-home him to a person without children. Also let me note he is an escape artist, Im just not sure we're going to be able to find him the right home. We live in northern Ireland. Has anyone been through this before and have any advice?
