    Sounds like a good solution. Best of luck

    Is there anyone within your family or close friend that you could re home the dog too? At least that way it won't be as stressful for the dog & u could still visit her every now & then?

    Good luck & hugs, I know how hard it would be to re home a pet. Good luck, I hope the vet can find a lovely family to re home her too.

    There are retiring facilities (aka not the pound) that your vet should know about. We rehomed our golden retriever when she tried to fight to death our husky over a prawn head. They found a lovely old couple with no children or dogs and she lived out her old age in retirement heaven.

    I think you need to rehome asap.

    What state do you live in?
    If you're in Sydney, I have the details to a dog behaviour specialist who is FANTASTIC. He has worked miracles with every dog in every situation you can think of. Definitely worth a shot. PM me for details if interested

    Its a hard decision but rehoming the dog sounds best for everyone. The dog would probably do better in an environment where he could be away from kids and get lots of TLC. An elderly person who wants a calm older dog may be a perfect match. There are plenty of 'no kill' shelters around who will keep a dog until it is rehomed. Not sure where you are but an internet search would bring them up. I'm in SA and have used a group called SA Dog Rescue who place dogs in fostor homes until they find new owners. I'm sure there'd be an equivalent in most states. Good luck.

    Have you considered behaviour training for your dog? If you live in Melbourne I know of a great dog training school that could assist, while they run regular dog training sessions they also offer behaviour management help as well.

    I'm in country sa. Extra training is worth a shot I guess. We have done 3 lots of obedience training in the past to deal with other issues. I just feel that this is different. In her face I can see she is frustrated and lashing out. I'm not sure I can risk having a dog like that around when she is eye level with my 3 year old. I also feel like I can't give her the extra attention she needs as I can't have her unsupervised around kids and I have a 4 month old baby

    Extra training might help but make sure the school offers behaviour modification training. The school I take my dog to has done some marvellous work with dogs of all ages and behaviour problems. I'm happy to PM you their name even though they are in Melbourne, you might be able to contact them so they can put you in contact with training school in SA that could help, just let me know.

    I could never rehome my old dog...instead she was happy to stay outside once the kids came along and annoyed her and I got another little dog for her company. She happily lived along side us until she was 14. I taught the kids to leave her alone and if she came up to them they could give her a gentle pat.
