We have a 5 year old border collie mix who is having bite issues. She has snapped at me before over a raw hide, and we were told that to find her a new home would be very difficult, so we could put her down or do some work with her, well we chose the latter. I took her for runs frequently and worked with her with a special collar and her behavior improved. We have since had a baby and with a new baby time to spend with her has diminished. Recently she snapped at me and bit me a few times while I was trying to brush her teeth and trim her nails, which she has never done before. I am now afraid for her to be around my son who is 18 months old and very active. I know that she is a good dog, but that our environment is not conducive to her needs. We have reached out to a few places, but they have been unable to help. If you want a lap dog that is a good running partner and have the time and love to work with her please contact me. It's just not fair for her to stay here where we can no give her the attention she deserves.
