*URGENT* 21 mo old neutered male, working line, labeled "fear aggressive" MANTECA, CA
 
Rescued a very expensive 21 month old working line male about 2 months ago now. He belonged to a family member, he was being borderline abused and ended up nipping someone. He was then abandoned at a random location. We went to look for him, put up fliers and 1 week later found him

He came into our home with no issues, he had met us maybe 5-10 times total, but not for long periods of time. In the process of trying to find him a home, we took him to a rescue to be evaluated and he was labeled as fear aggressive and rejected.

Trying to find a local home on our own, with a slow transition in mind, he has nipped and bit 2 people upon the first meet, we suspect the candidates moved too fast with petting and interaction, but we are not professionals so do not know exactly the reason behind his actions.

Its at the point now where we cannot find him a home, and he cannot stay with us since we have a GSD, Doberman, and a baby on the way.

Last night, my wife was in our bedroom on the bed, with the rescue lying on the floor about 3ft from the door. Apparently my gsd walked into the room and was immediately attacked by the rescue.

A fight ensued, I ran in from the living room and we were able to separate them by grabbing their hind legs and pulling them apart.

Neither dog was injured, but we each ended up with minor bite wounds

3rd fight in 2 months between them, I feel like it may be a lost cause. Considering taking him in today unless somehow a lead pops up

Shared.... Do you have a email or some kind of contact info for interested rescues?

Contact a local Schutzhund club. If you have his pedigree, someone there might be interested and know how to handle him.

I just fired off an email to every Schutzhund club in Northern California, keeping my fingers crossed.

Hang in there,

If you are interested in getting an evaluation of him, you might try contacting Lisa Maze who is a trainer in the Bay Area.

Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly can I expect from an evaluation?

Well, a good eval on the dog *may* help with adoption. She could also give you some tools to help manage the situation so that it is less urgent.

You don't have to answer this, but was the 'family members' name possibly Jaimie?
This dog looks sooo familiar to me
