"Put a bullet in the dog"?!! Oh my. I am glad you came here. No dog deserves to be killed just because it doesn't like other dogs.

So.. What makes the Retriever pup so special? Why can't you rehome it ?
I just brought a pup home a few weeks ago
if the current dogs here reacted in anyway, the pup would be GONE. not the dogs who have lived here for years. not the ones who i have invested all of my heart and time into.

I agree. Just all around bad general advice.

My wife isnt sure if she trusts the GSD now. Its just a trust thing now I guess.

Is there a friend you can send the golden pup to for 4-7 days and see how the gsd does then? That Might settle who should go. Dont let them talk you into killing this dog, it deserves a chance at life too.

Ok. So. I looked up your thread on the other site.
You should have expected that they would tell you to shoot her, that was on a gun forum!

Savage,
tell me. How much exercise and training does she get a day ? Does she go anywhere frequently (rides in the car, the park, etc) ?

Does she have a crate that she sleeps in ? & does she ever get any alone time with you?

Often in these cases.. There is LOTS of body language involved that you have looked over.. I'm sure right before the 'attacks' on the golden, she gets hard eye'd and stiff and stalks her.

Can you describe the attacks ? What does it sound / look like ?

and do NOT buy their alpha dominance bull****!
that will only make things worse
Why would a completely confident animal (a true alpha) attack?
it wouldnt
only those who are scared will attack, an 'alpha' has other means of establishing its dominance
and it is not through fighting
trying to be 'alpha' over a dog that is already scared only reinforces whatever fear she has currently
i have 2 GSDs and 2 Akitas, never lain a hand on them. if i did? they probably would piss themselves. if i do it enough times, they would take my face off.. and it would be well deserved!

She could definitely use more exercise. I had open heart surgery in august and have been recovering from that. As far as attacks go i cant tell because she waits till we arent in the room. Everything is fine until they are alone. Other than that they play and wrestle like normal. It sounds like all **** breaking lose. basically the retriever yelps/whines/runs the GSD is in police attack dog mode. hair standing up etc.
