I personally could not put this kind of dog on anyone else's shoulders. If I did I would have to know the person very well and I would have to know that they knew dogs. Even though the agreement would have to be that the dog can came back to me at any time and under no circumstance is it to go anywhere else. Honestly, even then I'm not sure I would give the dog to them.
This is the problem.
I feel exactly the same way. Although I don't necessarily consider him an 'aggressive dog' because this is the only instance of him doing anything of the sort, but I also know that it could certainly happen again in the future, and could be worse.
The thing is, we can't keep him. There's just no way. When we brought them in we planned to neuter, vaccinate, teach them some manners, and then find homes for them. Financially it's hard enough with Degan and Harlow, and it just would be irresponsible of us to keep another. (Things have kind of gone down hill since we took Boss and Ollie in. The boyfriend is self-employed and business has just been sucking lately...bad.) I also don't feel like it's fair to any of the dogs to permanently keep the schedule we're running right now. Because of having to crate and rotate I don't feel like any of them are truly getting the time out that they deserve. If our schedule wasn't so hectic it would be a different story. We can certainly handle the rotating. I just don't think it's fair to them for this to be a permanent routine.
I'm definitely going to start getting more active with trying to place Ollie. It has sort of been on pause since all of this has been going on. Plus I had that one family that expressed interest, but ended up getting a Boston instead. Hopefully finding him a home will help with my spirits and everything.
I'm just getting so discouraged.
