    Contact a rescue organisation, Kas. Don't try to find a new home yourself. The rescues have a lot of experience in matching dogs with people. And if you can get them to take her in and put her in foster care, they will also offer a trial period in case there's issues with the new home. They will also be aware of the dangers of dog fighting people wanting her. Don't put that kind of pressure on yourself. Call the staffy rescue people and talk to them. Tell them what happened last time and that you want to avoid a situation like that with Nugget.

    Nugget needs a dog run, a lot of traiing and exercise if you want to keep her. Never let dogs near horses, your worry should be the dog being killed by the horse even by accident. You have a terrier, they want to chase and catch things. Staffies also are bossy to other dogs if you let them be that way as it's driven by genetics. Where are you in Vic, do you want to try some training things first?

    Staffy Rescue are so inundated they dont take surrenders any more only from pounds AFAIK.

    I agree. A decent dog run and some structured exercise and training is what is needed. There are so many staffies looking for homes and if they have behavioural issues it is going to be really hard. I think if you have a dog you love you just have to find a solution and put the hard yards in. This goes with dog ownership, the responsibility and hard work of training them. Sorry but dogs are not disposable items just because they havent been trained adequately.

    I think we do need to remember that Kas has some circumstances which may make it a lot harder for her to learn how to turn a situation like this around. I'm not at all saying that she isn't capable of it, but she may need some more intensive guidance to get there. And if her mother isn't willing to help her, with the actual training and working out a workable plan for exercise and management, nor with any of the associated costs and things like transport to training locations etc, I don't know if this is going to be a viable option.

    My daughter owns a 3 legged ex horse biter SBT. Lost the leg from a kick. She was also concussed, and had neuro issues during recovery, seizures etc from one kick. Funny enough, whilst she runs around just as fast, she has never chased a horse since. I can see why your mum is pulling the plug though.

    You are in a tough space now. As i once had to surrender a dog, its a horrid feeling, and i wouldnt wish that on anyone. Take care

    Beloz I dont know the circumstances here except to read that this seems to be a recurring pattern with another dog already rehomed with terrible consequences. Hopefully someone can help out if the dog needs to be rehomed.

    You can read her profile, Kalacreek. I know she loves Nugget to death, but she will need more support than she has been getting up till now to avoid rehoming being the only option. There have been issues before with getting this dog appropriate vet care.

    So sorry Kassy....
    Maybe your mum will be keen on the dog run idea of Nekhbets . Its worth asking her about one anyway. If not the links provided above may be your best bet.
    Good luck to you and Nugget.

    Guys,
    Like Beloz said, this isn't your typical surrender we see every now and then.... Kass is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Without getting to personal i just want everyone to keep it cool with this thread please. Remember what it was like living at home with your parents...

    Is there a local dog club that would be prepared to help Kas learn about training dogs. The one I belonged to did help out a young girl in a similar situation and helped to work through the issues she was having with her dog. The dog wasnt too bad, the girl just needed some guidance and help learning what to do, she did have support though. This is a tricky one. If Kas is going to want to continue with dogs in the future she is going to need some help with training I would think.

    It might have driven me nuts at times living with my parents but it was nothing like what I am reading here, so on this specific parental situation I am unqualified to comment.
