My f***ing adorable a**hole dog bit my best freind today and I'm devistated.
To be fair, she's been pushing his boundries because she thinks she can help him to be less agressive
She wasn't harming him, he just wasn't ready to be pet by her yet and she went for it anyway.
I hate knowing I'm going to have to put him down soon.
I feel awful for her, although she says she's not done trying, and it's just a temporary setback.
I love that she means well, she does just want to help, but I'm scared that this warning bite is going to turn into a full on attack next time.
This whole situation just makes me incredibly sad.
I got him about 5 years ago. He wasn't even a year old and had already been through three owners. The breeders weren't particularly responsible and I was told that there's like an 80% chance that he was born from sibling dogs, and that the his grandparents were siblings from two different litters of pups.
The first home away from the breeders was completely unstable and ended up selling him via facebook to another .... also very unstable... owner who literally just left him at a freind's house.
The third owner tried to keep him at first, but realized that there was no way he could keep him and offered to sell him to me, knowing I had been looking for a dog for a few months. I came and met him and fell in love but had to find the money for a rehoming fee. I wasn't able to find the money at the time, so after a week or two, my freind gave him to me as a birthday present.
I had a roommate that was physically abusive to him. She had been my best freind for ten years, and now I'm no longer freinds due in most part to the way she treated my dog.
I have zero chance of rehoming him with his agression, and to be honest, I feel like putting him down might be the better option than putting him through yet another home, especially one he's been a part of for so many years.
I really hope my freind is able to help him.
I also hope like hell that her hand heals up well.
I feel awful.
