Bear looks like a purebred to me. If you think he'd be a liability, well let him go and get the puppy...Dogs are not disposable like paper plates.

I guess I just get dogs and keep them for life no matter what, but I understand the situation you had with Bear..Not his fault, but again your decision to make.

I guess you'll do what you feel you need to do, regardless of anyone's opinion that you asked for. Whatever makes you sleep at night.

Sounds as if you have already decided.

What are you going to do with the 5 month old?

He's purebred but no papers. I've been wanting a Black and Tan like my old dog Zack, and finally get the chance to get one. I'm sad cause I'm attached to Heinz and I was attached to bear. I'm thinking I should take bear in and try to find him a good home... But being that he's beyond aggressive it'll be a struggle. Be a good time to call the dog whisperer lol

Obviously keep him. Or if the ppl who are giving bear away want him, if not he's here to stay

The problem is not that you want a puppy!! The problem is you want to discard your current puppy because he doesn't have papers!! If you are not capable of taking Bear contact GSD rescues in your area!!! but a word of caution with a bite history is it going to be impossible to re-home. What can you live with? Are you okay with not giving Bear a safe home? Are you okay with giving up on Heinz? Both of those options are yours. But the third option IMO is best and that is walk away from the pup and take care of the dogs you have now. Pedigree puppies are born everyday and your young and down the road when the time is right you can always get one then. But the decision is 100% yours! Good luck

Ok, so you are thinking to trade your 5 month old for Bear?

What if the people put him on Craigslist, too?

With a 5 month old puppy, I'm not sure I'd get another puppy and/or an aggressive adult.

I agree with sunflowers, I would NOT offer Heinz to the people giving away Bear..They obviously can't handle a dog let alone a puppy..Who knows where he would end up.

Wait...Aren't you very young? Still in your teens? I thought you had posted that before.

So some questions...

1) Who owned Bear? Did you ever own him? Or live with him?
2) Are you capable of handling and managing an aggressive dog?
3) Who do you live with right now? Are you still at home with your parents?

I think the idea of rehoming Heinz is terrible. First in - last out in my house.

Who is to say you are the best home for Bear? Or is Bear really your responsibility?
