Bit of help here, for someone who doesn't 'do' forums or fb etc. He has had his rescue staffy for over a year and he has always been a grump with in your face dogs, yet he has a handful (or should that be pawful? :lol of dogs he is proper friends with.. or has been! Seeing a behaviourist because there is the chance he has to move in with his mum and her collie where he spends alot of time has to look after her anyway she has just told him he needs to get his dog sorted soon, or face the reality that it just isn't working out. Problem being that his dog has now attacked 4 dogs, his mums dog, a strange dog that got a bitten ear but then the next two were his best mates. The first he attacked him over nothing (that he could tell) and then was fine with all his friend dogs, walking and playing with them etc but then has really gone for another of his friend dogs and both ended up bleeding. Where is the line for the owner of these two dogs to say well my friends dog isn't welcome around them anymore incase it happens again? And where is the line that says no improvement has been made so far so its highly unlikely to? Now he loves his dog to bits, but there is no way he is going back to a rescue to rot, being a staffy, who has bitten and drawn blood on 3 dogs, who will want him? Nor can he pass on a problem, this dog is completely unpredictable with his aggression.... this time it happend, it was on completely mutual ground somewhere the dog had never been before, and with the other dogs' toy (it was his dog who started it not the other dog). After 14 months of trying and not getting very far and now seeming to go backwards.... how do you know when to stop? When you can't enjoy your dog because you cant take him anywhere for fear of him going for someone elses dog, becoming afraid that he is going to bite a person.... The way it is going his mum doesnt want the dog in her house at all.... but now they just keep the dogs seperate all the time after he has tried to go for his mums collie a few times. It is a hard decision to make... but what do you do?
