sehrgutcsg Two options > !!

Hang the guy by his neck against the wall - feet off the ground until he; "outs" the rag I inserted in his mouth or call the police and press charges for animal abuse and "felony" the jerk for the rest of his adult life.. An 8 week old pup, come on girl !

I just don't understand anymore..

I understand this particular frustration. I moved in with some roommates who all seemed decently knowledgeable about dogs - not experts or anything, but seemed to have common sense. Well, the first night I brought Kaiju home I put him in his X-pen and came back into the room to find them whacking him i the face with their hands, encouraging him to chew hands. I yelled at them about it, they apologized. The next day, I came back from running an errand to find them handing him a Nylabone, them ripping out of his mouth and laughing when he screamed for it. I stopped any interaction between them at that point and crated him in my room when I was gone. Found out a couple days later they were going INTO MY ROOM and taking him out of the crate to do the same things I was yelling at them about. Ended up having to padlock my room when I was not there.

At least the boyfriend does not live there it seems like? If his general attitude towards your puppy continues in this direction, I might have a serious talk to your roommate about the boyfriend simply NOT being allowed over at the apartment.
I did do a bit of the collar, treat stuff and it seemed to help so thank you for that! He was much better this morning. No, the boyfriend doesn't live here thankfully! Holy crap that is crazy! I can't even imagine what would posses someone enough to do anything like that. I would go absolutely insane on them, it makes my situation look a little less serious. Did your pup have any problems afterwards?

Sunflowers Get a front door (entry) lockset. Seriously. The one for indoors is worthless and can be opened with a credit card.

I was thinking exactly this when I saw him do it. I've been in that type of relationship that lasted for 4 years because I couldn't get out of it, out of fear. So now because of it, I kind of have that "sixth sense" type of thing when it comes to that sort of personality. I just really wasn't expecting it at all, especially with my puppy. He will NEVER be left alone with Atti again. That's not even a question.
Yes I just moved in and am in college, I'm 22 and she's 20. She has a Pomeranian that I've never seen him act that way to. He THANKFULLY does not live here and will be at a different school in the fall so he won't be here nearly as much. I know that if my boyfriend was here and he saw it happen, he would have absolutely done much worse to him. He loves Atticus as much as I do. I agree with the comment that I hope he does something back to the bf when he gets a little bigger.
He was much better this morning about his leash and collar, we went on a long walk. I think spoiling him and letting him sleep in my bed made him feel a little better! I did do the touch collar, treat, touch neck, treat. Fantastic idea!
I'm actually leaving right now to go get a door knob with a lock on it. When he comes back over, there will be a long talk with him (with my boyfriend and roommate in the room) about what is expected with my puppy and how to treat him properly. If rules aren't followed, there will be much more serious actions taken.
I have tried my very best to protect him as much as I can. He definitely knows I am safe and he's very velcroed to me.

P.S. If it was MY boyfriend that acted that way to him, he would have been long gone by now and I would have definitely ripped him a new one.

wyoung2153 I'm thinking... less extreme... at first. Have a serious talk with the roommate and/or boyfriend. If they don't respond or don't seem to care.. then I would let your roommate know you are looking for a new place and she can pay full rent.

BUT if they see your point and all that. Still don't let them alone with your pup, keep him in your room locked. Your roommate doesn't need a key to your room at all.. but give them a chance to change their ways. Some people are just down right ignorant and/or don't view animals as things to take care of..

I'm picturing the relationship Homer has with Bart. When he picks him up and strangles him...

my boy diesel i am sorry i thought she meant her own boyfriend was the one doing it
well if there is any way possible to make the room mate move i would do it

a person who does that to a 9 week old puppy will do it to his girfriend or baby either one!
