Rocky urgently needs a foster home
Why is fostering needed?
We are looking for a good place for my dog, Rocky. He is 5 years old, and we adopted him at year and half.
He is a very sweet and lovely mix boy, he is big, 111 pounds of weight. He came with anxiety. Now, he is neutered and with very good health.
He lives with us at home, in a big city as Miami, Fl.
Now we are my husband, my dog and me, but he is so attached to me, and I am of him.
Since we adopted him, he attacked my before dog 4 times. In the beginning they were like brothers, loved each other a lot, but he is so territorial and jealous, that suddenly Rocky began to attack him until I must give my other dog to my son for his safety.
Also, he bit a neighbor, that passed on the walk along the sidewalk of my house, not so bad but he did, and he bit my daughter, of 25 years old, twice now.
My daugherloves him a lot, and he loves her a lot too, but the past Sunday August 20, was the second time he attacked my daughter and he detached her ear.
This was a horror moment; the rescue came and we went to the hospital were my daughter had a surgery, etc.
Now, I am not capable to put him to sleep, as his old trainer said, he needed another kind of family structure, he is not a pet for a small home neither a human boy, and unfortunately, we treat him with too much love as he would be a human boy, this is our fault.
I know he will suffer a lot if we will give him, and I will suffer more too, but we cannot keep him. My daughter loves him a lot but she is terrorized now, and also, I have flashes of that moment and it is horrible. There are moments, I am afraid of him because what happened.
Please, please… I need to find a good place for him, to run, to be a happy dog, with good-hearted people, and maybe I could go and visit him time to time if that would be possible, but the best for him.
I will really appreciate your reply about my request.
Thank you for all the work you do, thank you thank you thank you.
How long is fostering needed for?
Until a forever home for pet is found
Rocky is a sweet and lovely boy. He is so territorial and jealous and does not like other animals.
