    Especially someone who has the time to devote to the animal.
    If my dog attacked a child he would be put down.. Yes I know Im a heartless btich but I hugely believe no point passing the problem onto someone else.

    This sort of situation is always a hard one, and IMO each case depends on so many different factors.

    Yeah i understand where your coming from & it is a concern when any animal attacks a child.

    But i believe a change in situation/environment might help,but as said earlier if there is any concern maybe the animal should be looked at by a professional.

    I just dont like seeing animals PTS where it can be avoided.

    Its a fact of life. Animals get put down every day. You cant save all of them.

    I hope the dog does get rehomed..

    Yes this it true. And it is absolutely the most disgusting part of human nature. Animals are not disposable, nor should they be treated as such. Just because they are not human does not make their lives any less valuable. Hell, we pay taxes that keep murderers alive!

    If there is someone willing to help the dog (rescue or otherwise) then I believe (after consulting a professional) the dog should get that chance if the professional believes it to be right. If however the professional believes the dog should be PTS then so be it, but the professionals advice MUST be sought first.

    I believe that a professional should assess the dog. If he or she believes that the dog must never have any contact with a child under any circumstances...Well then I would have the dog PTS because that is such a risk.

    However if somehow there was a home that could say without question the dog would have no contact with children, I'd rehome.

    Well stop and think about it..

    If the dog attack made the news. The dog would be put down straight away.

    I know I sounding mean but you gotta think about it.

    1. Behavioural assessment
    If it passes
    2. Rescue with full disclosure

    If it fails
    2. PTS

    Simple method that works time and again

    I would like to know who the breeder was and what state they are in. That is disgusting that the breeder would not help. I would suggest calling the closest beagle rescue and talking to them. If it is beagle rescue NSW I can help with that, if it's not the closest one you need to call whichever one is closest and give ALL the details and not hold back on ANY information.

    Oh please - 99% of breeders including the ones on this forum wouldn't take back a desexed dog. Theyre too busy breeding the next generation. IMO it isn't the breeders job to undo the owners mistake.

    Yes they should help - but you cant expect breeders to take back all of their owners mistakes. Rescue is different - this isn't rescue - this is stupid owners.
