so about a month ago me and my FI got a puppy. a 46 lb male german shepard-pit bull mix. who is insanely crazy. He is now 54 lbs and growing. I love him but He gets so riled up and won’t calm down and then ends up fighting with our other dog, a female pit bull. We’ve tried almost everything. The vet told us that if he deosn’t calm down then we need to get him to see an animal behavioralist. sigh. i’d consider taking him to obidient classes/puppy classes or such but he gets so riled up with other dogs that it is insane. i literally had to sit on him for like fifteen mins when we last took him to the vet. then i spent an hour walking him outside because he can’t handle it otherwise. My FI wants to give him to the end of the summer to shape up or ship put. I don’t think he realizes that it would totally break my heart to give him up. He has no qualms about giving him up cuz he has kinda hurt our other dog. Most of the time they are pretty chill with each other, it’s just that there are those times where you know that they will fight. It scares me and i dont want any of us (humans and canines) to live that way. i’d rather give him to a good home than just kick him to the shelter. i dont want to give him up at all but i also dont know what eise to do. He would need a home with tons and tons of patience and time (we both work and i go to school) and probably no other dog. i just needed to vent. He is so cute and goofy looking. and he is all mama’s boy. Part of the reason we think that he fights with our other dog is that he thinks that he has to be protective of me. I just wanted to let it all out cuz I dont want my FI to feel like he has to choose between anything. When the time comes to make a decision i will have to put my big girl panties on and make the right one for all of us. I just needed s shoulder to cry on…. Thanks Hive.
