Im not able to fence off the pig right now. Im trying to move but plan to have an area just for him once I do move.
Duke only goes into the yard to go potty. So its not like I leave him out side and will come home to a dead pig. Even when he's outside he hates being out there for more then 10 mins. And like I've said before it was all fine with the pig and dog until I came into the picture. Or im outside with the pig and duke is inside.
There is a HUGE differance between kicking a border collie around. And beating a 200lb rottie or even a 60lb pitbull. Duke isnt a pit bull, theres a big differance between the two breeds. Rottweilers were bred to pull the butchers carts in the middle ages. After that they were used to gaurd flocks or herd with the italian mastiffs. Im NOT giving my dog an excuse for his behavior. I've done a lot of research before I had decided to buy a rottie. My grandpa owned some, I've shown dogs, breed dogs, I've been raised in the dog world. I've never heard of them just changing and attacking for no reason. I agree that there are bad blood lines and that can cause bad tempers...Its not like their brain shuts off and they start biting people.
Im still going to try to tie him up and wait until he calms down when im with the pig to reward him and let him off the line and go back into the house. I'll do this every day for hours until its worked out and if not. Then i'll re-home the dog
