So, as you know, our baby Lexi (9 month old German shepherd) has been showing some aggressive tendencies lately. 99% of the time she is super sweet, but there is that 1%that is unpredictable. (aka: she bit my dad and Ross...not to the point of blood, but not a play bite either) We adopted her from a foster program this past summer and have been back in contact with them about the situation. The lady there is a total *$^%*$. She has made me cry several times and is making this the most horrible experience of my life. I am literally sick over the whole thing. I can't even bear to type it all out. Since it is pretty much impossible to get Lexi back into that program (and with how the owner acts, I don't know if we went to put her back there)we are looking for other options. Two things that aren't options: 1- putting her down 2- putting her in a shelter. We truly love, love, love her but cannot risk having a new baby with her unpredictable aggression. I am sick with grief. I don't know what to do. I just keep on bawling...like hard core, nasty sounding, chesty coughing crying. I feel like we have failed her, gone back on our word and that I am abandoning my child. This is the hardest decision that I have even had to make in my life. Please help.
Do you know of other options? Good places that you can recommend?
