end of your story..

what makes any of you think you know what's best for someone else's dog. lol bc they feed ol roy, and need a dog to protect their scrap yard?

get over yourselves. that dog should get a shot at a second chance.

GK1, exactly, end of MY story. The OP can do whatever they want and if you think that the dog deserves a second chance, tell it to the people he mauled, they may feel differently.
On the other hand, what makes YOU the authority to decide what the OP's dog needs or deserves?
As far as old Roy and scrap yard, again, not for my dog, but, you can do with yours as you wish.

that the op did not work out with this particular dog is not the failure; maybe was a poor match to begin with. that's how I got a couple of my dogs. a different handler experienced with aggressive breeds, a different environment/lifestyle, a new job where his temperament fits...could make the difference.

GK1, I am going to go with genetic issues on this one. The OP had the dog since it was a puppy, he trained the dog, kept for several years, this, to me, spells genetic issues with this dog.

Sure could be.

I find it admirable the op opened up about it here and asked for alternative courses of action to euthanasia.

As for me, I blame the dog last.

I understand GK1, of course the dog is a live being, but, considering its past, it would be a huge liability to pass it on to someone who could very well get hurt and that is something I am not willing to do.
Yes, it is admirable, but, also very dangerous because of the background of that dog. Personally, if it were mine, I would have to put it down.

Very often we hear that the GSD who will " bite for real" is in decline much to the dismay of enthusiasts. Now we have found one, and so many thinking that this dog should get pts. Isn't this ironical?


by Hired Dog on 16 July 2020 - 15:07

K9L1, I am not sure if you are being serious, but, yes, for sure we want a dog to bite for REAL, but, did you bother reading the circumstances under which the dog bit?
When my dog bites, I want it to have a clear head and still be able to follow commands during the bite. I dont want the type of dog that bites because of other "issues".

GK1 why don’t you take the dog. You feel you can give it a chance go for it. Yes, this is not the dogs fault but someone bred the dog someone raised the dog etc. So as usual humans are to blame and failed the dog.

Hired
The op does not very clearly explain the circumstance except that the dog gave no warning. I had a dog that was very loving to family members but would bite them in certain circumstances; ex: if they positioned themselves above the dog when approaching (like walking down a step with the dog at the bottom of the step) or if the dog was asked to move against its will and had to be physically touched to get this done. I remained the only one who could get the dog to do something (without being bitten) that it did not want to do even if the dog had to be touched.We could not trust this dog around strangers or any outsiders.
