I have a dog named Shadow. She is about 3 years old; I got her at a yard sale for free. But recently she's been too rowdy and aggressive. I also have another dog named Buddy, who is a boy. And Shadow constantly bullies him (constantly chasing after him, barking at him when he tries to go to the food bowl, etc.). We've been trying to get rid of her for a long time now, with no luck. But now, we're going to ask the person we got her from if he will take her back.

I have no idea when this is going to happen, but my stomach is queasy at the thought. She is actually a very sweet dog sometimes; she'll come up and rub against your leg, or lay her head on your lap. But other times, she'll bark at you and nip at you, just for standing up.

Now I can't decide if I actually want to go through with it or not.:(

I suggest you'd have to get rid of her and change another dog

Actually, if we do get rid of her, my mom siad I could get a cat.

We don't have enough money to train her. :(

first, which is the breed of the dog? because some dogs after some years become crazy due to it's cranium not growing enough for it's brain! if she is a cross of two different breeds that can happen!
and if she is behaving that way, you better get rid of her, perhaps later she become even more agressive! :(

She is part bulldog, part Black Labrador.

Is your male dog neutered? I read somewhere that female dogs get aggresive when they are around un-neutered dogs

Oooh that's sad. I had a dog once named zak when i was 5 and we had to give him back to the otooles because zak didn't want to be left alone coz my dad had work and my mom could nt keep him because she moved to an apartment now we live in our house again. I still have 2 cats mary and abby i wish i had molly too my third cat on my moms side of the family but my grandmommie wants to keep him. Now i don't care about dogs as much no more as i used too now i care more about cats. And you're lucky you don't have a rottweiler coz they can be aggressive.

I have five dogs. I guess I just got lucky.

Anything that's part Bulldog isn't really safe to keep. Best to swallow it and get it over with.

I can defantley relate to your problem. My dog we had a few years ago was agressive. She was fine until we moved. After that if anyone went near her food she would literally growl to the point she was about to bite. For no reason she despised me :confused: we used to be best buds at my old house. Then she finally got out of hand and she had to get put down. Usually dogs that are agressive were abused when they were younger. But i wish you the best of luck :D

We took her back today, we finally got rid of her. She was too strong.

It will definitely take some getting used to. :(

Then just buy a dog robot then, it'd never bark at you

I doubt I'm even going to get another pet. I still have another dog who is a very sweet companion. I'm going to let him sleep in my bed tonight.

Hopefully I'll start feeling better soon.

That's sad news hun, it was probably for the best, giving a pet away is heart-breaking sometimes, I hope you feel better soon :hug:

She'll probably still have a happy life with her new owners so don't worry :)

First I suggest a dog trainer, who understands dogs more. They can usually fix the dog's behaviour.

Then if it's really too dangerous it should be put to sleep, not given away. :(

Eesh, they stink and you have to clean their cage like every week, litterboxes are way less work. And I love the smell of the apple flavoured cat sand... :vlol:

Kitties are excelent pets, they're unpredictable; proud creatures, yet they love being snuggled. ^.^ Get a cat I say!

The only downside to cats is that they tend to run in front of cars.

Maybe she's pregnant? :confused:

I wouldn't get rid of her to be honest. You'll regret it for sure.

Giving up pets is always a very hard thing to do. All I can say is I hope you make the right decision.

Can't be, we've had her fixed already.


I'm still strongly leaning towards getting a cat.

Yeah FL56, the owner's dog had puppies, and they couldn't afford to keep them...

All last night I felt guilty about getting rid of her. :(

The good thing is though, that the person we gave the dog to is (ironically) the person we got the dog from. He lives very close (on the street next to my house), so I can go see Shadow any time I want to.

I feel a bit better knowing that. :o
