Hi there, my husband and I have been together since 2010 when we got our first dog. In 2012 we purchased our home and decided our first dog needed a friend and so the next one came into the picture. We have had them both in training with no luck just constant barking and nervousness due to other dogs being present. We even tried private lesson with dog 1. Anyway life happened we got married and decided to have a baby. I known here comes the "oh my God how can you just give up your dogs because you have a kid" people ready to judge but you know what I tried. We tried. We tried to slowly introduce them, keep him away at a distance but you know what here we are 2 years later and they still consistantly growl, bark, and they have even gone as far as to snip/scratch/bite him. They are NOT bad dogs. I repeat they are NOT BAD DOGS. They just dont like kids. Honestly. So here we are my son is 18 months and all he wants is to be their friend, to play with them, to love on them and they want nothing to do with him. I've looked into a few shelters in an attempt to find the home they need but nothing is panning out. They want them surrendered and I dont feel they would do well in a shelter and i honestly cant bring myself to do that to them but my sons safety is my top priority. I remember being pregnant and everyone always said "how are your dogs going to be with him?" I always thought of this picture perfect relationship they would have he would love them and they would love him and yet here we are. I guess what I am asking is, is there a rescue out there willing to help me rehome my 2 senior dogs. They need a home with no kids, probably no other dogs and someone who is good at dealing with "grumpy" dogs. Again I really dont want to put them in a shelter as I dont think they will do good as they are very very nervous dogs.
If there are any rescues out there willing to help me to ensure my dogs go to a great home with someone who can let them live their life out kid free I would greatly appriciate any help I can get.
A desperate mom.
