He’s an extremely sweet loving guy, I am devastated to have to think of giving him away, I have recently had my second child and since then he’s been a little confused and just testing his limits. He’s not been aggressive in anyway more just trying to get attention with bad behaviour. I’ve come to realize that I can’t give him all the attention he needs anymore and he’s definitely been noticing that. It breaks my heart tremendously.
I have tried everything in my power to try and make this work from training, creating a different systems to try and help him, having other people come over and help walk him when I can’t constantly anymore. He seems to only really want only my attention despite the efforts of other family members. I can’t give him the attention he once had from me, so he becomes this big ball of energy to the point we’re it’s unsafe for him to be around the baby. He is extremely gentle with the baby but when overly excited he doesn’t realize how big he is. At this point I alternate shifts between him and the baby so he is in and out of the crate all day depending on baby’s sleeping schedule and it’s just not a way for him to live. He has always had so much freedom around the house and the poor guy is confused.
I really wanted to keep trying but my partner is not on the same page as I am and it is creating stress in our family.
I love him so much and I feel so sad am guilty that I’ve had to consider this option. I have never gave up on a dog before so the process is very hard for me.
