Hi a newbie here, though dogs owner for over 40 years, mainly desexed male terriers and rough collies and mixed breeds. Problem is 3 year old gold cocker desexed male over last 4 months getting snappy with its owners and desexed female dog aged 13. No changes in lifestyle, living area, family members, no renovations... No negative situations. In fact, both owners home all day with dogs as we are retired.
Never had a pet dog snap at us so this is a real problem. Spoke to breed rescue person in my state who gave me three solutions, change diet, put up for sale, or euthanase. Told me the dog may benefit from being rehomed with person experienced dealing with this what appears to be not uncommon cocker problem and told me 'good luck finding someone'. Feel let down by this as i would have thought she would know of someone to contact. Also initially told me they (the club) have a condition of taking back problem dogs and i would need to speak to his breeder. Did that, breeder has no room for him. Spoke again to rescue person who then gave me the three options again with no offer to help.
I dont want to advertise him on the internet site they suggested because A i dont want him to go to a home where he might be mistreated B i cant sell a snappy dog, not right.
Does anyone know of someone who the rescue person was referring to who rehomes dogs who have issues in NSW?
