    I'm so sorry. When exactly are you seeing the behaviouralist? This is rather urgent IMO.
    We see the behaviourist on the 16th of april I have just spoken to her on the phone she gave me her mobile number as she wanted to see izzy earlier but there was no appointments available so said to call at anytime if we had a problem. After asking a stack of question she advised me to remove izzy from our house at the moment as she is terrorising the other dogs and pets, so she going to stay at my friends place and I will stay with her at night. I feel terrible for her she looks at me like she doesn't know what she has done wrong.

    Izzy is now at my friends house and I will return later tonight to stay with her. Until the 16th of april she will be stay at my friends and will be confined when no one is home. She seemed happy enough when I dropped her off.

    This is really a case that has to be seen due to the severity - dog to human aggression.

    Best of luck.

    The behaviourist is very nice and will let me know if she can get Izzy in sooner due to her behaviour getting so bad so quickly.

    When she bit you did you have the chihuahua in your hands? Just wondering if she was aiming for the dog, not you, but missed.

    Sadly I hate to say it but if Izzy is such a threat to your other animals, then maybe you should look at rehoming her IF it's only animal aggression.

    Has the vet had a look at Izzy, ie blood work etc to see if there is an underlying health issue that has suddenly brought this behaviour to the fore?

    I truly hope the behaviourist can help you.

    Our vet did blood tests 3 weeks ago when she went to be vaccinated. The vet now muzzles her because she is worried Izzy will bite. I didn't have the chihuahua in my hands at the time it was definately aimed at me sadly. Our vet has told us that rehoming her is not really an option as we'll just be passing her problem on to someone else. It all comes down to what the behaviourist has to say if she thinks Izzy should be rehomed we will look into that if she thinks Izzy should be pts we will have to think hard about that.

    Thanks for the support our family thinks we should simply have her put to sleep so do her previous owners but I still hold out hope for her I will certainly keep everyone updated.

    My thoughts are with you and your family.

    I hope a solution will be evident to the trainer and a plan of action/training can commence.
