    Well said ANNE
    Why hasn't DJ been desexed?
    It can help with agressive behaviour...if there is one. I think we'd all growl if we had little fingers poked in our eyes.

    I have a little lap dog that doesn't like kids...and I have 4 kids!!!

    Can you barricade your house off so the little dog and the baby are seperate?
    I lived like this for ages while my kids where still too young to know that they should just leave the dog alone (and you get fit stepping over the gates etc all the time too..lol). My little dog is also a lap dog...but he knows my lap is only available when I say so

    And the advise you received about..."you can't teach an old dog"...is completely wrong. Your little dog will probably have a life span of about 15-18 yrs...a 3y/old is NOT old, and definatley not untrainable.
    It would be like saying (hypothetically)...'well your child is now 6 yrs old...your child can no longer be taught how to count to ten as they should already know this by age 5'...for instance.

    If you really love you dog, you will find a solution so you can still all live together

    Read my post again before you carry on like a loose wheel and start swearing and being abusive. I didn't say he was anything, I merely COPIED AND PASTED the things YOU stated about him and asked if he was so perfect then why are you giving him away. There is no mention anywhere that he is aggressive.

    You had NO intention of desexing him before you gave him away either or you would mention this VERY important tidbit of information when you first posted the details about your 'much loved but no longer wanted' dog.

    I also don't believe you spoke to a trainer and they said he was 'too old' to train. BULLOCKS! What trainer would say that! Age is IRRELEVANT and any trainer would know that. You are only trying to cover your own guilt tracks to make yourself feel better and to garner support on this forum.

    As for it being 'none of my business' - if you want to state on a PUBLIC forum that you want to give your dog away then you must expect that the PUBLIC are entitled to offer their opinion. Some will agree with you, others will disagree. Suck it up sister and accept that this is the way forums work when they are freely available and accessible to the public.

    Regardless of the dog, the temperement or the age, NO YOUNG CHILD SHOULD EVER BE LEFT UNATTENDED WITH ANY DOG. It really aint that hard. That is simply a golden rule as all children will poke and prod dogs and even the sweetest of dogs will become annoyed with this treatment. I have Pugs and yet I would not ever leave a child with them unattended and I can almost categorically state 110% that they would NEVER bite or harm a child.

    I think those offering advice should save their typing fingers becuase it is obvious that this person came here with their mind made up to give the dog away, not to try and find a solution to the poking child and the snappy dog. She is only appeasing you all because she feels a victim now because I have come in boots and all.

    Nattylou - for the record, I don't tar everyone with the same brush but I can spot flimsy excuses a mile away. Remember, I take surrenders in and have for 5 years.... the excuses are sometimes genuine, the owners have some times gone to great lengths to resolve issues. Some times the owners have really suffered with thier decision. I don't usually want to know, I figure "just give me the dog and let me find someone who will love it for life, and not just unitll something better comes along...."

    Say whatever you want, I really dont care and you dont know who i talked to and what they said. I assure you that, that is what he said..If your so into dogs why are you giving me critisism instead of trying to help me. You are a bully and your only saying these mean things because you have your own issues. I really dont care what bad things people say because they dont know my sittuation and they dont know my dog. Only I know him best, so leave your comments to yourself.
    It really is none of your bussiness if your not interested in having the dog.

    As i said i dont have the time to help resolve this problem nor do i have the money to train him. Im telling you I am doing this for the best interest of the dog! and if you choose not to beleive that then keep opinions to yourself. I already have a few inquiries about him and i have not fell short on the details. Just so you know im not doing a bad deal with people that want him.

    Thank-you.
    Your the only person I have come accross on this site that has given me hope that i am doing the right thing. I am NOT coming back to this site ever again! This is the only site that has given me bad feedback on my decisions.
    But to let you know, we have found a nice couple that are interested in helping him and we are keeping him for another 2 weeks to try to make it work before making our decision.
    I am looking for a dog trainer that will help him as we speak so fingers crossed that they will help or give me a few tips.
    Thanks agains.

    So, you only want to hear the 'good' things and not the bad... go find a bubble to live in then.

    As i said i dont have the time to help resolve this problem nor do i have the money to train him.
    Your answer above states EXACTLY what I said when I warned people not to bother giving you advice on how to deal with your dog because you came here to dump him, not to be advised on how to handle him...like I said, they can save their typing fingers as it is wasted.

    Then you go the opposite way once again in the next post and in an attempt to make yourself look better by saying;
    I am looking for a dog trainer that will help him as we speak so fingers crossed that they will help or give me a few tips.
    *rolls eyes* Yeah, sure.....

    Spare me your excuses.

    And by the way... didn't you say before that you were going to desex him.... will this be done after the 2 weeks or before?

    With luck, this little dog will find itself in a home where it will never become an inconvenience to anyone again.
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    By the way I never said I was going to de-sex him. You dont seem to get anything I say...Hmmm...read some more books and learn about sociel skills.
    You obviously dont go the right way about handling things you dont agree with. You dont know me, you dont know my life, you will never know my dog and You really need to keep your nose out of other peoples bussiness.
    Thanks for all the support and great advice...NOT!!
