Looking For Help With Australian Shepherd That Has Turned Vicious Toward Me
My daughter has an Australian Shepherd. She lived with me last year and as a pup, I would play with him all the time and he was very loving. She moved away for about a year and just came back.
Now her dog is vicious toward me. He tries to bite me and charges me. Even if he is in the car and I walk toward the car he goes crazy. He is great around most people but if a guy has my build he goes crazy.
My daughter’s stepdad and I are about the same build and he did not like the dog and I’m thinking maybe he abused him and maybe her dog can’t tell the difference but I don’t know. I can’t have myself or friends getting bit.
I really enjoyed playing with him and would like to again but if it continues we will have to get rid of him. He is about 1 1/2 years old. We are in Mobile, Al and would prefer to give him to a good home if possible but our, and of course her, first choice is to keep him.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
