Advice on possible rehoming
My question does not involve a Havanese but there are so many thoughtful and wise people on this forum I though I would ask...
My sister (who never had a dog before other then our childhood dog) adopted a dog from a friend's elderly mother who was going into assisted living and could not take the dog with her. He's four years old and perhaps a poodle/cocker spaniel and possibly terrier (??) mix. Nothing of this was mentioned but he is very aggressive, especially with men/boys and has bitten my brother in law and one of my nephews. He frequently growls and bares his teeth. My sister has three kids (11-17) and works f/t. She does not have the financial ability to hire a trainer. Personally, I think they should try to rehome the dog but I think she feels very guilty. I am wondering what you all think and also how one goes about finding a home for a dog that bites. Thank you for your thoughts! Elyse
