6 Year old bichon Shitzu cross

Icon_missing_thumb By Jaime | January 09, 2013 | Answers (3)

Hi there. I have a good friend refer me to this site. I have 2 dogs and a 16 month old son. I have a bichon cross named yuki. She is a loving dog. But in the past 6 months has gotten ver vicious with my son. Snapping and growling. Now recently she has turned on me when I get upset at her growling at Ben (my son). Winnie our 7 year old cockapoo is the sweetiest dog you will ever meet. But since this all started she has started defending myself and Ben and turning on yuki. So my son has become quiet scared of all dogs!. After a long and hard decision we have decided to give up Yuki. So Im looking for someone perferable with out children to take Yuki for us. She is in good health, but is not a smart dog. We found her as a puppy and she has never been all there mentally. She is small about 10 lbs. Her best fit would be with a single person or and elderly person looking for a few years of love.

If There is anyone out there willing to help me please send me a message or email me ASAP. The last thing I want is to have to surrender her to the SPCA. I want to be able to adopt in the future and this option will not allow me to do that.


Please help.

Dear Jaime---you saved that puppy, and that puppy is jealous over your baby. Isn't there something you can do to make you Yuki feel extra special around the baby too? When I had my first baby--my parti-poodle was protective, and when my baby was on the floor on a blanket, she had an instinct not to go on the blanket---not even the edge..she was careful--then all of a sudden she started not to be able to jump on the couch, would walk into walls----I asked the vet, if her eyes were getting worse (lack of vitamin something when she was born that made her one eye looking like cataracts)--the vet said no and that she could be jealous over the baby--feeling less loved. So, I paid attention to her more, and she slowly got back to her own self--not quite perfect but better....she didn't come to me as the same as before having the baby. So...give it a try a little longer---even walking the dog along with the baby in stroller...if that doesn't work--at least you know in your heart that you've tried your best and you must think of your baby and find another loving home just like you described.
I have done daycare, and some young kids were brutal with my maltese. One little boy kept putting a choke hold on my dog. I had to eventually tell the boys parents to talk to him about this, because he wasnt stopping. Other kids poke their eyes....give the dog a chance, if you are that worried for your child, okay, but you cant always blame the dog or say it is mentally not all there. Thats not fair. And it is a bichon mix, with all this overbreeding and stuff, some dogs dont have good tempermants, but that is the breeders fault, not theirs.
have u considered that not to blame on son but maybe when not looking is getting a bit rough playing with her maybe hurting her and thats why all of a sudden she is biting i have seen it happen little ones dont know any better and play a bit rough with the pet maybe watch and see if that is happen if it is work on the problem with your son and teach her to trust again. just a suggestion dont know am not there
