    I realise this Billy and thats perhaps why I am so adament!

    This dog has no place in society full stop.

    I also am amazed at the 'desexing' advice.

    The OP came here after sympathy and advice.
    Well sympathy she wont get from me as it was her own fault for leaving her children in that situation.
    And advice? Put the dog to sleep before it does it again.

    Cowgirl!
    Please seek professional help for your little guy!!!!

    He's not a happy pooch.
    His problem behaviours are there for a reason, you need to know what these are..

    -Desexing should be done, but won't solve these problems. His new environment wouldn't have anything to do with his nasty ways either.
    - 'completely un trustworthy with the children and visitors' - Re-homing is not an option.
    - I have this feeling that the 3 horse kicks he recieved might have done some permanent damage. Did he get kicked in the head?

    Fair enough Choppa.

    I agonise over dogs in my local pound environment every day who are terrified, unsocialised and untrained.There are far too many of them in desperate need...

    Some hide under their bed boards and are unresponsive on every level through no fault of their own. Food, Water, Basic Contact....

    I would give ANYTHING to have a behaviourist get involved with the dogs at Hawkesbury.

    Even if it is worst case senario, at least then I would have a good indication. Perhaps i could then sleep at night!

    I work very hands on with the dogs, it can take days I spend far to much time with them if you ask me.

    There is without question a point when i need to hand it over, and at times even recommend PTS.

    I truly hope the OP seeks professional advice as a matter of urgency.

    We will be seeking professional help when visiting the vet for desexing. I did not and never have asked for sympathy thankyou very much and I quite take offence at that statement. Advice yes. Thankyou to those who have without prejudice, offered it.

    I fully take responsibility for the actions of my dog and have never pointed the finger at anyone else in this situation. If I get bad news from the vet or behaviourist then I will do what is necessary.

    While I appreciate your opinions Choppa, you are being somewhat offensive. Perhaps I am taking it the wrong way and if so I apologise, however I do not think so.

    I am astouned at all of you who are so easy on pulling a trigger (killing a dog) because he has a problem. Do you ever think that this dog is part of the family and no matter what they actually love him??? Do you consider that for every bite there is a good reason behind it? Or are you convinced that this is it, it's just a bad dog, bad luck and it should be over and done with it? There is a help for such dogs and I've seen it and I believe it. It needs some (or a lot) behaviour understanding, it needs help and it needs to be checked from dog's point of view not just ours, but it can be solved. Unless it is really some health issue that cannot be fixed. Then, and ONLY THEN I am fot PTS option.

    oh dear.....what a terrible situation... I can tell you love this animal. However, its a bit risky having a dog in your home that would bite your child - isnt it? under the eye... your child might not be so lucky next time...I want to add in a considerate way that my children are much more important than any pet and should be put first.

    I am concerned regagarding the lack of intervention, care and concern over an extended period of time that has lead to a serious bite on The Op's childs face Federa.

    Ohh cowgirl what a terrible position for you. i have a child simliar age to yours and would HATE for anything like that to happen... I know if it was me, i would find it a very hard decision to make!
    Do you really think having an exporing toddler around the house its actually possible to keep dog and child seperate all the times?? I know this definantly wouldnt work in my house!

    Why does the dog need assessing ?

    The dog has shown alarming aggression in the past ,eventualy leading upto biting a child on the face.
    According to the OP previous posts the dog had already bit people before.

    The dog does not need assessing.
