brandongill1 say what you will about the breeders dogs, and how they were bred, but personality wise, I know she really does care for the breed, and really does love her dogs, I know he will not be neglected there, and will be safe, I'm just worried about him not being rehomed and just staying at the breeders

Jag Are you afraid that the breeder won't pay attention to him? What about holding onto him until she finds a place for him to go? What about your uncle? Have you tried contacting rescues or trainers who may be interested in taking him? Again, that puts you back into having to neuter him first (although a reputable rescue should be able to do that), but it would give you some peace of mind if you're unsure of the breeder taking him back.

brandongill1 The only thing that I am worried about now is that no one takes him, I felt comfortable with montreal because I knew for sure he would be going somewhere, the last thing I want for him is to be stuck at the breeders,

Jag That's probably best. Are you going to have the neuter done before he goes back to the breeder? I'd be worried that she won't follow through with that... but in the end it's her responsibility from start to finish.

brandongill1 So another update:
The breeder will no longer be sending him to the breeder in Montreal, like you guys requested, instead she said she will try and re home him, so I've decided to
let the breeder try and find him a home, he will be neutered

Jag I hope you change your mind about never getting another dog. When my bitch and I finally parted ways, I said "no more shepherds". My family had been to hades and back with her. Years and years of attacks, attempted attacks, failed re-training, etc. Grim is the best shepherd I've ever had. I can't imagine life without him. I know your heart is breaking right now. I wouldn't get another dog from that breeder, either. Let time pass for you to heal before you decide no more dogs. Trust me, a well bred GSD is the best dog on earth.

brandongill1 I do appreciate your guys help over the past 10 months, and will definitely take your advice into consideration,Odin was a joy with the family, he was loving caring, and so protective, he loved us, and we loved him just as much, but in no way could I ever see myself getting another dog, Odin will always be our dog, I broke into tears when we came to the decision of giving him up, our breeder even told us that she would be willing to give us another pup from her next litter, but I could never do that, I feel so sorry for Odin, and feel terrible that I'm about to put him through this, I'm just hoping that who ever I decide to give him to will give him the attention and love he deserves.

Jag I also hope you realize this is NOT the breed. Shepherds are wonderful dogs. The "only" dog for many of us. I hope you don't give up on the breed because of this experience. There are good breeders out there who care what they're breeding. They produce sound dogs who are a true joy to live with. I seriously hope that at some point you get to experience that.

lostangl I have experience with a fear aggressive GSD. I rescued him when he was a year old. He was great with us, but couldn't be around strangers as he would bite. Luckily, we seldom have visitors and when we would, he would be put in a bedroom or on a leash until they left. When we had him in public, he was fine as long as no one tried to pet him, so we keep everyone away. We would never give him up, we learned to live with him and know what he is comfortable with and what he is not. When he goes to the vet, he is muzzled. I think the best thing for you to do is to neuter your boy and give him to someone that can handle him. Good luck.

FlyAway Of course, there are some breeders who want to breed this reactivity into their dogs for IPO sports.
