I got him when he was 6 months old after my SBT/APBT cross Brandi was put down. He's hands down one of the best dogs I've ever owned. A real pleasure to work with, great prey-drive, great family pet. He has one quirk and that WAS food aggression, I broke him of that one REAL quick. He snapped at me one time when we first got him, he got a swift kick to the head, and never did it again. No I don't beat my dog, an ass slap once in a blue moon is it.
The fight lasted about 30 minutes, and when my mom went to pick HER dog up, Beau re-directed and caught my mother's thumb and about took it off. He backed off after that and cowered and ran into the house and into his crate. This sealed the deal for me.
I want Beau in the dirt, mom refuses it.
It's killing me to make this choice, but I don't really trust many people to handle a dog of his calibur (He's a high prey-driven dog, and doesn't listen to anyone but me! And he's not for the average pet owner, he's a working dog, not a pet...and yes I know I'm talking about a beagle). So my question is would it be fair to just let him run free at the rainbow bridge or give my mom a chance and see how it goes?
See in my household we're on a crate and rotate system thanks to my mom's stupid ass westie.
How can I convince her, it's for the best.

I already made plans for him to go live with my best friend (whom is only 16) and her mother. They live in SC, near where I will be living for about 2.5 months.
By law he's mine, the tags and everything are in my name.
As for my friend taking him, I'm not going to let her. She already has a REALLY HA and REALLY DA GSD. And I'm not going to stick my dog back into a crate/rotate position.

But I need to convince MY mother that he's better off there, then here at home.
