Extremely Aggressive Australian Shepherd Has Attacked and Bitten People Many Times
So my fiancé has a 2-3 year old Aussie who is EXTREMELY aggressive towards me. The dog has bit me multiple times, chewing everything in sight, tried to attack my sister-in-law while she was holding my nephew, bit my brother and broke his arm.
I have a senior Lab that I refuse to let them be alone together for any amount of time as her dog will hurt him I think. Luckily, I can bring him to a friend's house. His wife and newborn love him and he loves them. What’s not to love about an older Lab?!
The aggression literally started when we moved into our new home. He has attempted to attack the neighborhood kids riding bikes past the house as he can jump the fence. It’s to the point I want him gone. He used to be a cool dude and he’s just snapped in the past 6 months and honestly all I see is him attacking one of the neighborhood kids and me losing everything.
Selfish, I know, but we just moved to northern Virginia and bought a house—the whole nine yards. My work is too intense and demanding for me to be constantly worried if the dog has destroyed our house, gotten out and attacked someone, etc. My fiancé is home every day as she can work remotely and she can’t even control him anymore.
