Default Rehoming Dog

-Ranger

(Before I start, I know this will be one of those posts that gets hit from all angles and Iím ok with that. Itís been an emotional week, but upon prayers and seeking some wisdom from others I feel this is the best approach to seek first.)

We have a 17 month old male lab/hound mix (plott hound) whoís around 60 lbs that we adopted when he was 10 wks old from a rescue out of Clarksville TX. He is a family dog who lives with me & my wife, a 14 yr old boy, 10 yr old girl, 1 dog for 14 months (12 yr old lab who passed a month ago), and 2 cats. He hangs out with us constantly inside and outside. But this dog is high energy and is always ready to go! He was boarded a couple of times when younger at a kennel during a couple of trips when we couldnít bring him along and played well with other dogs. He spent last deer season with us at the deer lease almost every trip. He has also spent around 3 months this past spring at a trainer for bird hunting and some basic training. He is a started dog and knows here, sit, wait, place, heel, back (to release), fetch, hold, out (for toys/birds), gives high fives (my daughters favorite trick with him), and is e-collar trained, etc. He is house trained and crate trained. He loves to run and play, take walks, but also likes to relax and nap too. At the trainers he got along with most dogs except if another dog possessed dominant traits then he wanted to be the dominant dog.

Overall he has been a great dog and I was excited to hunt him this upcoming season, but this past Tuesday night on 7/16 we had an incident I canít look past. He was in the kitchen while I was preparing dinner and our daughter came in. He was sitting near me and she bent down to hug and pet him, and unfortunately he snipped at her and got her under her eye. She had to get 2 stitches. I honestly think it was a worse case scenario. Iím not taking up for the dog but it was not an attack, I think more of a territorial/possession act.

So here is the kicker, my 10 yr old daughter has Down Syndrome. Due to her intellectual disabilities from that, we don't feel as if we will be able to make her understand enough to not put Ranger in this situation again (and by no means am I blaming her and taking up for the dog, it was kind of a perfect storm but Iím not willing to think that it can be prevented in the future because of her disability). Even though itís a hard decision we are hoping to rehome him with someone who would be a better fit.

We feel he would be best in a home with no pets and no kids under 15 (this is based off his interaction with our son). Ideally a residence with space would be great where he has room to exercise. Not sure how he would do at a dog park since weíve never taken him.

From a hunting standpoint; he retrieved a few doves last year at an early age. While I didnít hunt him on the duck hunts with I did bring him out to hunt up a few cripples after the hunts and he sniffed them out. He loves chewing on antlers so I think he could find you a few sheds, and I also simulated a blood trail for him with a deer my son shot last year. On a side note, I just brought home a buck mount yesterday and sat it on the dining room table, my wife had to get onto him several times this morning cause he wanted it. I sincerely think he will be a bad azz hunting dog (Iím basing that off comparing him to the 2 bad azz black labs Iíve had over the last 20 years). He will make someone a good retriever and possibly assist on some blood trails too.

If he were a vicious dog, Iíd put him down. But he is not, he is very playful and in the right home will make a great pet. Unfortunately, weíve just realized we arenít the perfect home for him. Iíve put down 2 old dogs and this is as hard a decision as both of those times because as a family we are attached to him. But I know as a ĎDadí I have to make some hard decisions along the way while raising kids and this falls under that category. My daughterís safety is priority 1!

So whether itís you or someone you know that might be interested in Ranger please contact me direct via text or phone call.

Also, on another note, if you have any information/connections on therapy dogs please share that with me as well. We are going to entertain that for our next dog given our daughterís situation.

Grateful TBH!

Goodness, bad situation all the way around. I’m sure you know that you would be liable if the dog were to bite someone else. I hope you find a good home however if a dog bit my special needs brother it would immediately be put down.
Best of luck.
Side note, dog sure looks to have pit mix in there somewhere.

That dog has pit in him, and he done screwed up. He would already have a .22lr in the head if I was in your position. Sorry, I'm just being straight up with you.

We had a dog that looked just liked that before something just snapped in his head and he killed all our cats and became very aggressive. He was supposed to be a black lab. Ha. Yeah. It's unfortunate. That's why I only buy dog's with papers now. Actually my dad brought that one home when I was in high school. Had no issues "finding him a new home"

Even though it was a difficult decision, you are absolutely doing the right thing. Putting your child above your dog is always the right decision. You would feel horrible and responsible if you overlooked it and the dog attacked your daughter again and caused serious injury. A lot of integrity you have in breaking down the entire situation so whoever adopts him has full disclosure. Sounds like he is really a great dog, and will be an awesome pet in the right situation. Good luck!

I hope you can have luck finding a good home for him! I recently went through this and had to ultimately put my two down. It was a very emotional and anxious few months before I finally did what I felt I had to do. I feel for you man... especially since every shelter in Texas seems to be at capacity with waiting lists.

Iím sorry that this has happened & I feel for you!! If I didnít have so many dogs Iíd take him. I was just talking to my wife the other day about putting a kennel on the side of property close to the house that could house around 15 dogs & theyíd have about 10 acres to run. For situations like these, itís heart breaking for sure.

As some of these others, Iím glad Iím not judged by my blood line, Iíd be in prison if so. But Iím sure all yíall blood lines are spotless though. Iíve only been bit twice in my life & it was by a Lab & Golden Retriever but I donít hold it against ever other Lab or Retriever I see, after all theyíre just animals.

You’re right, that was the perfect storm. Dog was focused on you and food and your daughter surprised him. In the right home he’ll be fine. One of the best dogs we ever had would nip at my son and his friends to herd them into one place, she was a border collie trying to work. Good luck finding Ranger a home.

I’ve gotten the responses I expected for the most part. But I am still hoping someone sees his potential and is willing to understand the situation. As I said he isn’t a vicious dog. And if he has pit in him, there’s an entire world out there that swears by them as pets so not sure that’s a great argument. I do know plott hounds were bread to bay bears and hogs so that may explain the nip more than any other reason. He did nip at my old dogs back legs when he was a pup. I’ll stress this again, if he was crazy mean it’s a different end no doubt. Leverhunter hit the nail in the head describing exactly what happen. TTT.

Looks like a good dog. My nephew has autism and sister had to rehome her cocker spaniel to my grandma after a bite. Dog gained 20lbs and never had another issue at grandma’s and provided my grandmother with a companion and guard dog for 8 years.

Sounds like a decent dog and will make someone a fine dog. Tracking and bird dog in 1 package. I can't speak as to the situation but I do know that a dog has a right to defend himself but not be aggressive. Too many times I've seen kids be ruthless and cruel to dogs only to have the dog snap and bear all responsibility for the situation.


Many years ago we had a Catahoula that was very territorial. The neighbor would mow along the fence and the dog would try to bite and attack the mower the whole time. One day the neighbor cut the mower off and reached over the fence to pet him. The dog jumped up and bit him on the hand. The neighbor never said a word of it until a few weeks later when we told him about a service man coming over to do the annual inspection on a system we had and the dog bit him on the ankle. He drew blood. We were shocked but the guy said it wasn't a big deal. That's when the neighbor told us what happened. I wanted to have the dog put down. But my husband quickly found a new home for him. The new owner was a crotchety old man who wanted a dog that would kill squirrels, chase hogs out of the yard, and most importantly bite intruders. The old man loved that dog more than anything.

I'm sure someone who lives alone will love this dog.

Did he actually go to bite or was he just startled and when he turned around just caught skin with teeth? My old dog walked by a 2year old once and when they reached out to grab her, she turned around really quick and they were face to face. Luckily the 2yr old was just scared. No matter how much you watch a dog, you never know what will happen.

I truly feel for your situation.
i had a situation, were i had got a full blood German Shepard to mate my Female, he was a BIG Import, and very aggressive, i was trying to show my daughter and her friend that was not that bad, well he just up at the friend to take a treat and nipped her chest, then seeing what he did my daughter backed up, in doing so raised her hand up toward her face, and he jumped up and nipped her chin, causing a big gash. having to take her to ER and luckily they were able to glue it and she had minimal scarring... but the wife and daughter wanted me to put him down right then and there, i looked at from his point, which was he wanted the treat, we had been giving him the treats so he went after the treat, not aggressively to bite her or her friend.. so , I understand the reasoning OP is doing, I did it and in the end regretted it. he is no longer with us...
Good luck OP...

Did you put him on craigslist? Somebody will take him. If you want to give him a 2nd chance. Be honest why your giving him away.


Be a good junkyard dog, hogdog. Dog for a mean old ******* who deserves to get bit...etc.

That dog doesn't need to be put down, you're doing the right thing rehoming him instead. He'll make somebody a great family dog. I could see him riding in the truck down the beach for a single young man with no kids.

On a side note, shelters labeled **** near everything as "Lab mix" no matter what it looks like because they adopt out better.

About 10 years ago I saw a family giving away a 5 year old Blue Lacy because she had become aggressive to their kids. Their kids were autistic. I was wanting a second dog at the time and thought I'd just keep her away from the grandkids. So, I ended up adopting her.

A few months later, she was laying on my kitchen floor, asleep. The oldest granddaughter was learning to walk and stumbled on the dog's feet and double hand planted straight into her ribcage. I leapt forward to snatch the child away, but the dog just picked up her head and looked at the girl and then went back to sleep. She lived 4 more years and was always a pleasure around kids.

Now I have a year old Lacy and he takes loving kids to a whole new level. He is flat excited when they come out and loves, loves playing with them. I think he would rather be with them than me.

My other Lacy has to be kenneled when the grands come out. He does not like kids and he will hurt them, but we don't have kids out very often so we can manage it.

Hope you can find a home for him. The dog did a terrible mistake by snipping on your daughter. It was clearly not his intention but was caught by surprise and he reacted that way. By the pictures that you posted, you can tell the bond between them. If he was an aggressive dog, he would of done something worst already. I understand and agree with you in not taking other chances. Don't put him down, I really hope you can find someone to take him.

**** Kurt I hate to hear this. Dad was just telling me Monday about the incident then I saw this. I know what a tuff situation this must be for yall. I'm glad that Kaylen is okay and looks like you found a home for Ranger.

WOW, it was a pleasure to meet you and thank you again for adopting Ranger! I feel confident he will make a fine dog in a setting like yours. Your generous gift (pedicure) to my daughter and wife sure put smiles on their faces when I gave it to them and eases their pain of giving him up a bit. Taking the dog would’ve been enough but going beyond that sure helps us know Ranger is going to the right person. I hope you have fun with him because after the intro yesterday I know he is going to have fun with you. Heck he never got to ride in the front seat of my truck so he might already like you better, lol! Good luck with him and let me know if you ever have questions about him.

Grateful!

God bless you!

Kurt

Ranger has taken the front seat as his.
Was great to meet you and the only problem is he wants to drive.
