AMERICAN STAFF FEMALE

Post  NIKA139 on Sun Feb 07, 2010 3:00 pm

HI
IM NOT SURE IF I CHOSEN CORRECTLY THE PLACE FOR THE THING I WANT TO WRITE ABOUT, HOPEFULLY IT WILL GO TO THE RIGHT PERSON ANYWAY.
I HAVE TO FIND A HOME FOR MY DOG.
ITS NOT EASY CASE FOR ME, BUT SOMETHING I JUST SIMPLY HAVE TO DO.
LONG STORY SHORT:
I HAVE 2 AMERICAN STAFFORDS AT HOME, MALE 6YRS OLD, AND A FEMALE 7 YRS OLD,I LOVE MY DOGS VERY MUCH, BUT UNFORTUNETELLY THE FEMALE DOG IS DENGEROUS FOR OUR 1 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER,
WE GAVE HER A YEAR TO GET USED TO THE NEW SITUATION, TREATING THE DOGS AS DOGS AND THE BABY AS THEIR PACK LEADER, BUT DID NOT WORK FOR OUR FEMALE DOG, ESPECIALLY NOW, WHEN OUR DAUGHTER STARTED TO WALK, THE FEMALE DOG CAN'T ACCEPT THE FACT MY DAUGHTER IS SO EXCITED, SHE ACTS LIKE A DOG WHO WANTS TO CALM HER DOWN, BY BITING HER, AND WE SIMPLY CAN'T ALLOUD IT HAPPENED.
I DON'T WANT TO LOOK FOR ANOTHER HOME FOR HER BY MY OWN, I WOULD BE AFRAID THAT SHE WOULD END UP IN HANDS OF SOME NUCKERS, WHO WANT A DOG TO BE THEIR WALKING LOADED GUN, BECAUSE THE LOOK AND BREED SHE IS, AND ALSO BECAUSE SHE'S VERY GOOD GUARDING DOG, BUT NOT SUITABLE WITH CHILDREN. I JUST CAN'T KEEP MY DOGGIE ANY MORE.I HAVE TO PUT MY DAUGHTER FIRST.
WE ARE NOT IN HURRY WITH THAT, I JUST FEEL GUILTY BECAUSE SHE HAS TO SPEND MORE AND MORE TIME OUTSIDE IN HER DOG HOUSE, KEPT AWAY FROM OUR DAUGHTER, WHILE WE ALL AND THE OTHER DOG IS INSIDE, IS JUST NOT FAIR.
I HOPE MY SITUATION IS CLEARLY EXPLAIN BY ME, AND HOPE HEARING FROM ANYONE WHO COULD HELP.

yes, you right, is horrible for as, especially to me, because the female dog was my favorite.
i have them both since they were pups, i baught the female from puppy farm seller, the other one comes from a breeder, he's with pedigree and all, so the girl was always treated by me as this poor little creature, so maybe their is my fault, by favouring her, i make her too powerfull and she wants to dominate our daughter now.that's how i explain to myself, i blame me, not the dog.
she's the sweetest, and most gorgeous dog apart from her thing with children.
is very hard thing, to give away a dog you spend so much wonderful time with...

hi Dominika and welcome to our forum smile .

Have you thought about asking for help to a dog behaviourist/trainer? Maybe you should have your situation assessed by someone who has experience and then decide what is best for your family and the dog. You can PM tripod on this forum, she might be able to give you some good advice.

If you are still sure that you want to rehome your dog, it would be good if you could post a photo and other details (e.g. spayed? vaccinated? microchipped? etc.).
You seems to be aware of the risk of rehoming bull breed to the wrong person. Advertising on internet can help but you need to be careful especially with this breed. And if you are considering to send your dog to a rescue, please make sure that you personally visit the facilities and are happy with the conditions the dogs are kept thumbsup

Hi NIKA139,

I have PM'd you and I suggest that you contact http://www.happierhoundsdogtraining.com/ for help from a qualified, insured, knowledgeable trainer. I am afraid I will be unable to offer any further help due to a serious misrepresentation of the minimal advice I have helped you with.

Thanks smile
