Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Ok, so one last ditch effort in saving the situation...we are fixing him

Bold move; I commend you.

Did He have to volunteer, or did you have it all planned out ahead of time and are just dropping him off without any indication of whats going to happen? I thought you had to sign off on that kind of thing, but live and learn I guess.


He'll probably be low energy for a couple of days and might be a bit weird for a while. I mean it can't be easy for anyone to lose their balls after having them for that period of time.

Poor little guy, but it had to be done. I just commend your Boy Friend on becoming a Modern Day Castrato all to help a dog out. Aaron getting fixed might not help Dex all that much, and is a bit drastic, but it is an out of a box solution and I like those the best!!!!

I hope it works.




Quote :
Dexter is now living in my detached shop/garage until we can get him in to be fixed/heal/assess the situation post ball chopping.

Dex shouldn't need to be separated from Aaron after his balls are gone. I'd just tell the Boy friend to wear some baggy pants for a while to watch where he sits.

A guess since Dexter does nip and bite it might be a good idea though....


**************************************

All joking aside fixing Dexter is a good idea regardless of his behavior so I'm happy that is being done.

I Personally would not segregate him from the family, read pack, for any of this but that is me. I think it would just make him more anxious in the end regardless of fixed or unfixed, but I'm not you and I don't have a child to protect and think about.

I also wouldn't expect a change in behavior over night, and without keeping up with the level of exercise / training Eric has suggested with or without testicles. It could make him more mellow, but the very best remedy for that is to tire a dog out 9 times out of 10.

Ideally Aaron should be stepping up even after the neuter to train Dexter as this alone still most likely won't be enough. If he isn't ready and willing to commit to it, and willing to work every day on his behavior problems, your best bet will still be a Rescue or Shelter.

Sorry to say I still think your best course of action would be to Rehome. Though I really really do hope it works out for everyone.

Best of luck Karissa, truly.

Someone needs to post a picture of Skeptical Husky, because he surely is not as amused as you all.

If you haven't seen him, use the google Smile

I just got a message when I googled "Skeptical Husky" because the Naval Academy internet filters out things deemed tasteless. Not kidding, those were the words in the message. Well played, Eric. I can't wait to go home and see what kind of "tasteless" humor that entails.

Back to the original conversation, I really hope the neuter helps Dex.

My mother has always told me that you can tell alot about a man by the way he treats animals (and children and his mother but those don't really apply here). That said, I think Aaron needs to be rehomed.

As for Dexter, unfortunately it sounds like he needs more than you can give him and he would probably do best with a single dog, no kids home after some serious rehabilitation.

I just hope Eric will agree to stick around to help you with the new pup and ensure that she gets the training she will need to overcome all of the bad habits she has been exposed to.

Best of Luck!

Just read through this thread and glad Eric is handling things over there, and that Dexter is getting neutered. Chris' response was hilarious! I also think the bf needs to be rehabilitated or rehomed. Twisted Evil
