Oh, that's a very hard decision for you to make. Your reasons are more than justified I think. Don't be too hard on yourself, it's probably something chemical in th dog perhaps?

Big hugs to you darling, as I said, very hard and you are very brave.

You are very courageous making such a hard decision. i think that under the circumstance that you really don't have much of an option.

How awful for you!! (((((big hugs))))) I think, though, that you are doing the best thing for both you and your dog in the long run because if she did end up biting someone and seriously hurting them then the police may become involved and you would most likely be forced to have her put to sleep.
It is most likely for her own good as well, because as Melissa said, there is probably something chemically wrong with her!!

Very sorry that you have to make this decision at all. You should definitely have some strong words to your friend, the breeder, about him not breeding from that particular dog again.

I'm so sorry that you have to make such a heart breaking decision.
Big hugs to you and your family.
Its so hard to make that kind of decision but for peace of mind especially when you have kids, its probably the only choice you have.
You have tried to find them problem and I'm sorry you didn't get a solution. Its terribly sad......
Take care, big hugs,

We had to euthanaise our fish last night - we had medical attention for him but he had reached the point of no return, I'm afraid.

It was heartbreaking, so I can empathise.

I agree with the others, it is a very brave decision you have made. But it is also a responsible decision too.

I hope you get over the pain of this decision soon.

Thats not much I can add.

It's always such a hard thing to go through. Pets are truly family members.

Although I do agree with the others, I do beleive I can offer a alternative if it helps at all.......
Why not donate the dog (depending on its age) to a security company?? security companys train all kinds of dogs for different tasks/assignments, and im sure they could use your dog, rather than you have to have it put down. I have worked with many different security companies and worked with many different dogs of all ages for many different tasks.
Well its an alternative, thats the only advice I can offer.

Good Luck, and I hope everything works out for the best in the end!
