Default Urgent: Need home for Chihuahua ASAP(WA

I thought that I would have more time to find this dog a home, work with her on socialization and give her another chance and keep her and my dog separate. Today was the last straw. They saw another dog and they both started going after each other. It was a tangled mess of leashes and it was a complete nightmare. Belle's leg was caught up in the leashes and I could not get them untangled. I had to grab someone for help who was passing by. It was a very dangerous situation for me and them.

I am not a dog trainer.. I have never worked with such an aggressive dog before and I just can't do it anymore. It's stressing me out beyond belief. I've never wanted to ever give up on a dog because I know that she is fine, but just not with mine.

I have contacted the other rescue here and I am waiting on a response.. I just don't know what to do at this point to keep the peace. Keeping them separate is a nightmare. My place is small. Aside from crating and taking them out separately there is not a lot I can do.

I'm at my wits end and I angry and frustrated right now. I DO NOT want to hand her over to just anyone either. I am not willing to sacrifice her safety either and hand her over to some joe schmo who won't be able to handle her behavior with other dogs.

She is up to date on Rabies, licensed in my city, has her DLPP, and a clean bill of health from my vet. I have a prepaid spay voucher and appointment on March 6th but it can be used at different clinics around Seattle/etc.

Thanks,
Thea

I'm in Canada. Best I can offer you, is to take her in order to rehab & rehome
if you are willing to put her on a plane. I believe it's a two hour flight? Hubby
& I have been rescuing for ten years, I'm willing to give any dog a chance.

Let me know how it goes, and if you need my help in any way.

Oh..I hope she finds somewhere safe.

If one of the lovely ladies here can't take her (I know LS is an excellent option you ought to consider!) then have you looked into some no kills with experience in aggression?

I was just watching dogtown.. show about a shelter in utah. They're considered a last resort shelter for dogs no one else will help and might be worth a shot, at least a phone call, if you can't find someone else.

I would take her but she needs much more one on one time and a world with fewer animals than mine. My home is always dog-filled, I walk regularly on dog heavy paths, work with dogs, etc..plus a house with 1 (sometimes 2) dogs and a bunch of other beasts like kitties and ferrets might be too overwhelming, and my dog isn't even 100% yet..rescued in october and getting better fast but not perfect.

Best wishes to you and her..she is a beautiful little lady.

She deffinately would be the perffect canidate for a single dog only home and also with someone whom has knowladge of rehabing dogs. I hope you find her the right home or rescue.

I hope you manage to find somewhere for her. Well done on taking her in and trying to help her and well done on knowing when it's too much. Often we don't want to give up on a dog but it sounds like keeping her would do more harm than good at this point so it's good that you're looking for someone who can handle her. Sounds like she needs someone very experienced or someone without a dog already. Good luck in your search.

SIgh. She definitely her moments of lovliness.. I've battled through the fights, paid for vet visits that have broke my bank and have been told to put her down.. Not one of my friends understands that she's a dog. I don't know why she's doing this.. If I could ask her than this would be easier..

I have NO idea how I would put her on a plane and I just don't know if I feel comfortable with it.. It is why I'm leery about handing her over to just anyone somewhere.

Look at this sweet face:

shes deffinately a little cutie pie, you should use the prepaid spay voucher and get her spayed the 6th is not that far off, is she the smallest dog in your pack? Is the other one she fights with bigger than her? If so she is deffinately challanging the other one for for alpha roll also many smaller females non spayed will head warnnings to a much larger female thats not spayed. Alot of little dogs always try to make them selfs look tuff and mean as a warning to bigger dogs or other dogs. Alot of times the trigger dog will indeed be the one that recives the bad end of the deal so to speak, you need to watch and learn body language from Belle and not just this female, 2 dominating females will constatnly challange each other till one backs down and becomes second in the higer archy. Keep them seperated untill the one is spayed and has a chance to heal from it and her hormones start to ease up. Then do a re-intro and watch Belles body language anything outa the norm eye stare, hair raised, tail up, body ridgid, standing tall and over the other one as if to say IM POWERFUL are all triggers to this female, you need to step in and correct right at that second befour the fight happens. What was this little girls back ground like where did she come from how did she act there?

But she really should be in a 1 dog home as she vows for all the attention to her self.
