    Thank you! I've seen a lot of these threads lately and it seems like everyone thinks the only option is to kill the dog. It is amazing to me that people think to kill it before thinking to re-home it somewhere that isn't a farm. The suggestions to beat the dog or have it beat up by a ram are sickening as well. This dog is clearly not one that can live with farm animals. Find it a non-farm home. I'm sure there are plenty of wonderful people out there who don't have sheep that would love to give the dog a nice home.

    OP- find the dog a new home. I have a greyhound and have had a few in the past. I also have cats, so I can only adopt the greyhounds that have tested cat-safe. A lot of greyhounds can't be trusted in homes with cats. Does that mean they need to be put down or beaten until they are afraid of cats? No. That would be insane. They are placed in homes without cats and the owners are made aware that they will probably kill a cat if given the chance. That's it. Simple. Find the dog a home where there aren't things it wants to kill.

    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.
