I'll be very picky with his new home Christine.. I promise! His new owners will have to take him to several classes not just one course.. and he isn't going anywhere right away..I wish you were closer too.. I've taken a lot of crap from the puppy this week! thank god he learns quick. He really wants to please once he stops his inappropriate reactions.
Breaks my heart to see his little mind so bent. I have some very good balanced dogs here that are helping me with him too.. Ace is already responding in a good way to the dogs.
If I put him in a play yard.. I will put another pup/dog in first.. then go get him and put him in.. then he won't throw a hissy fit and its all good in his mind, he is not being abandoned by me, its playtime! Today I put him in first one time and his reactions were much improved when I left him. I could see him thinking... "oh, shes bringing another dog" and he relaxed.
He hasn't bit at my hands and fingers when he gets put back in his crate either today..he actually is going in under his own power
grudgingly, but he goes ...
No food aggression ... no toy aggression... just barriers and separation..
he is improving..I have him on petfinder already but his new home will have to have time for him, be experienced, committed and live closeby ..
I went to the laundry to wash doggie blankets and there was two separate flyers for pit bull puppies in Seneca Falls.... GAH! lovely... one was a litter of twelve! ruined my day. I thought I might call them and tell them Ace's story... among other things.
Ace came from a BYB near me, the guy is a piece of work..I could fill a whole thread on him alone..lists his occupation as "dog breeder" OMG... he'll get his due.
