Hi everyone, I need immediate advice about my German Shepherd/Belgian malinois mix, she has gotten us into trouble and my wife and I are so distraught and don’t know what to do. We moved to a new state for my wife’s work into a one bedroom apartment six months ago from a five bedroom house. We didn’t have much time to look for an adequate place for our dog bailey to play, so we only wanted to be here temporarily and we excersise her as much as possible. She’s 15 months old and has never quite grown out of her biting stage, although she has significantly progressed and just bites when playing. She also barks at people around the apartment complex and it’s an intimidating bark, but when people come up to her she just wants to jump on them and lick them. We have had construction workers working on our complex since day one and she barks at them the worst, and well, she slipped off her collar last Friday and ran towards a worker and jumped up and head butted his arm, but according to the worker she bit him and showed me a small dot sized mark on his arm that did not look like a dog bite, and the guy and his friends started talking in Spanish and saying they might have to take him to the hospital, but I knew they were exaggerating and were looking for an excuse to screw me over, but I was also at their mercy because my dog was the one who initiated contact. So they called animal control and we got slapped with a fine of 250$ for a permit to register her as potentially dangerous, on top of that we got a notice from our apartment that we have to remove her from the premises in ten days or get evicted. We don’t know what to do, she is our pride and joy and we love her so much, some people have suggested putting her down or re homing her, but both options have put my wife and I in constant tears just thinking about it. She’s so attached to us and can’t take being away from us and I would have an emotional breakdown if we had to put her down. Can anyone please give me any advice? We don’t know what to do. She’s such a sweet dog and yes she does get visicious if someone tries to take away a treat or bone but is instantly happy if you can distract her and get the item away. And yes she does bark at people a lot at home and gets super excited, when she bit that guy it was a play bite and not a viscous one, at the dog park she doesn’t bark at anyone and is actually the sweetest dog there. We just don’t know what the right thing to do is and don’t want to lose her.
