    I will say it as Kas has been very upfront with this in the past.
    She has some cognitive disabilites and all the old timers here love her to death.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Kas, whatever happens, you can always come here for advice or just to think out loud. Hopefully together we can come up with a way to make sure Nugget has a happy life.

    That is why I was asking if there was a local dog club that may be able to help out. Ours had an 8 week training course that included people with learning disabilities who owned dogs, which is what I was referring to in the last post. Trying to come up with ideas so the girl doesnt have to rehome a dog that she loves into an uncertain situation and learning some life skills in dog ownership as well. Kas needs to learn these life skills same as anyone else and I am sure she is quite capable with support. Call that judgemental if you like.

    Maybe her parents wont support something like this but it was worth a suggestion.

    I don't see anything other than contructive ideas being floated here. Maybe they aren't an option for Kas but I certainly don't see anyone talking down to her or criticising her for the situation she's found herself in. Hopefully one of the constructive ideas here will keep Kas and Nugget together

    Sorry Kalacreek, I phrased that completely wrong and edited my comment. You are right that trying to find alternatives is always a good thing to do. I was just thinking back of that time with the vet issue and other posts about rehoming. And superconscious about tiptoeing around this one. (And then I put my big foot in it.) I think maybe I've actually convinced myself that in this particular case, when it has come to this stage, rehoming may be best.

    It would be fantastic if Kas could convince her mother to go to a training course with Nugget. But if not, I hope a suitable home can be found.

    No judgement here. Just support for being in a horrid situation. And you cannot be held responsible for what your parents decide. It is their house, their horse etc etc

    I dont know the history with this lass. I read her profile and it would be nice if we could somehow help to keep her together with the dog. Kas perhaps you could ask some questions about the issues you are having with Nuggett. The idea of a dog run is great but needs to be combined with solutions to the issues that Nugget has that is driving Mum crazy. You have used a muzzle and this still may be part of what is used.

    I just know how many staffies are looking for homes, our shelters are bursting with them. If a suitable home could be found it would be great. However if Kas is keen to learn how to handle and train a dog that would also be great and would be good for her I would think. Only Kas can tell us if she thinks that she is up for it and if her mum will support this.

    nugget was going to training with me every sat till the car crash happened now mum cant take me to dog training and we have asked if some one from the Casey council to take me there and back but there rule is no dogs in the carers car and mum dos not want to build a run i have all-ready tryed and yer we have tryed every thing from her being chained up to being locked up every time she tryed to chase the horses but she just wont learn her lesson when she chases the horses she gets chained to the post or locked in the bad dog pen which is 2m by 1 m but we have a divider in there so we can put two dogs in there and that pen is to small to leave her in there 24/7 we have tryed putting muzzles on her but she slips them off and keeps on chasing them horses the horses have kicked her a few times and chase her of but this makes her chase them more. she just wont learn her lesson about not chasing horses and mum has had it we are at the last straw and have to regretfully re-home her in a home with out horses even if i love nugget so much its a very hard choice to make one that i will regret for the rest of my life i hope that she will understand that i still love her with all my heart no matter what i was there when nugget was born and watched her grow up to be a pretty amazing little girl its just her habit of chasing the horses has made me to to making this horrible choice to re-home her i hand reared her because her mum died when she was only 5 weeks old i have been there for every birthday every Christmas giving her a big bone and her a new toy to chew on i have tryed my best to care for her and love her like she was my own but this choice i have made not only i feel like im not only abandoning her but i feel like i have broken the promise i made to her mum before she died one that i now know was to big to keep and that was to always keep nugget safe and to never to part with her in any way . but i feel like i have broken it this is hard for me i just hope that nugget will understand that i still love her and that it was for the best.
    guys im sorry that every time i have come on here and made a thread about something it always went the wrong way and ended up making people fight about that i wasn't looking after her properly but understand this now i have tryed my best to love and care for nugget to the best ability i can i have always tryed to do the right thing for her i love her to bits and i will not be able to forgive my self for giving her away its hard for not just me but for nugget to

    That is a shame about no dogs in carers cars. You would think that they would be more sympathetic to the situation. Typical red tape.

    It sounds like you have really tried hard Kas. That is all we can really do in life is to do the best that we can with what we have. In the end you have done what you think is best for your dog to keep her and the horses safe. I dont really see that you can do anything else given the situation.

    I dont think there was too much fighting on the thread just people concerned to help the situation and find out more. Given what you have written we can see that you have really tried.

    We know you love her and always did the best you could for her, Kas. It must be very tough for you to be in this position.

    It can be very hard to train a dog out of bad behaviour.

    Nugget sounds pretty obsessed with those horses. I don't know enough to say if that could be fixed.
