|I really need your help. I am in a situation where the rescues are not helping me! I am left with no choice but to euthanize my dog! My doggie Tyler needs a new loving home ASAP to live out the rest of his life and we have been turned down elsewhere due to his occasional dog to dog aggression.
Tyler is a TerrX, male, 25 lbs, 10 years old, and still acts young like a puppy! He is super friendly with all people, cuddly, no health issues and totally house trained.
We can no longer keep him in our family because he will not get along with his pack mate Tiffany - $3000 later and trying three separate trainers he still gets into fights with her on occasion.
His aggression towards other dogs is very random and seems to be unprovoked - making him untrustworthy and driving us to insanity! One morning after a long period of no fights (thinking the problem was solved) me and the two dogs were relaxing outside in the yard, watering plants, when a small amount of water sprinkled Tyler from behind coming from my watering bucket - he snapped and charged straight for his pack-mate Tiffany again. I was also bitten on my arm while breaking up this fight. This was a deal breaker for me.
He has been in many situations over the years however when he has been to dog parks, dog beaches, and other group outings without any issues whatsoever.
Nobody wants to adopt him. It breaks my heart to consider euthanasia... He would be perfect for a one-pet loving owner OR someone comfortable with dog-to-dog socialization training. He doesn't get along with kitties or other small furry critters either.
His favorite things to do is hiking, walks, and playing "chuck-it".
Please help! We are at a loss and don't want to put him down. We are asking all no-kill shelters and rescues. One already replied that they are not accepting any other pets. If you can help please call me!
