I don't know if I would put the dog to sleep if it is only resource guarding. Is it aggressive in other situations? Does it resource guard with everyone, or just the kids?

God I always wondered how someone with young children could raise a puppy. With Rocky's energy and tendency to be nippy at 4 mos even sometimes at the face. I could never imagine having a young children and a puppy. I have 11 yr old and 16year old. And that was a challenge. I would never recommend a puppy for families with children under the age of 10. Especially if it is first family dog. I do not condone my 10 yr old getting down on the floor with Rocky. Plain and simple. As a parent I recommend, A FOSTER RESCUE DOG SHOULD NOT BE IN A HOME WITH YOUNG CHILDREN.

It is my belief that there's too many good dogs without such issues that can be rescued. Why waste your time on one that's got these dangerous tendencies. But that's just my opinion as an ACO.

i told the foster to use nilif, and to keep the kids away from the dog when he had toys/bones.. but it fell on deaf ears...
