Looking for thoughts. Rose, the American bulldog is coming back to me. She went after one of the children in her adoptive home. I have made an appointment to put her down on Sat, I can't place her. I just don't have enough confidence in my ability to place an AB. She is one tough ass dog and is a dominant dog - even with people. She was great with the kids on the pre visits, confident but not overbearing, not really paying a whole lot of attention to the girls.
I know she let her get up on the bed with the girls and that's probably a mistake and where things started. She's just a dog that needs to be treated like a dog. I don't want to put her down, I don't want to tell the adopters I'm putting her down but I don't know what I can possibly do. She will bite someone with the wrong kind of owner and it's not something I will accept from the pit bulls I place so I feel like I can't cut her slack. that and she's a damn big dog, she's about 23" at the shoulder - she's taller than my corso
She's tried to exert herself with her owner like she did with me when she was here, eye contact and growling to get attention, barking at me up close if I'm ignoring her, pushy things and it was a daily battle. We developed an understanding and I can handle her but I can not legally keep her with my dog limit where I am.
I am sad, looking for thoughts, please be kind, this is not what I want to do.
