Amba- if the dog causes any more problems, my daughter will have to get rid of it. Of course re-homing would be the first option. However, since she was given this dog to be a "farm dog" by its last owner ( he has had several) because of behavior problems, it might not be that easy. The dog can be destructive in the house and is hard to contain. Anyone who has done rescue knows that it is hard to find homes for "perfect" dogs, and ones with problems.... My daughter will try to find a good home, but if she can't, euthanasia would be better in my opinion than being shuffled from home to home and being abused. I do NOT beat dogs or hurt them. I DO know, however, that it might take drastic action to ensure that this dog is not killed. I believe a few hard zaps with a shock collar are justified if it can save this dog's life. I wish we could just talk to the dog and tell him the consequences of his bad behavior instead of punishment, but unfortunately, that isn't possible. The only way to possibly stop the behaviour is to make it so unattractive he won't do it again.
