Y'all may remember a while back me posting about my daughter bringing home a pup about 10 minutes before a major thunderstorm. He was dumped too young to leave the mama and had a slight case of mange. We really didn't want another dog and had already been real clear about no more animals but we didn't want him out in that storm either. I was going to look for a home for him but when I took him to the vet he had a mild case of mange so we decided to treat him which took almost 3 months before we could introduce him to the other dogs. We built him his own dog house and everything. But I've been mulling over trying to rehome him still. He's had all of his shots. The issue is he is more dog than my son can handle and my son doesn't like him very much. My husband and son do walk the dogs every day together. But when my son goes out to take out the trash and such and the pup just doesn't listen to him at all. I keep telling my son that he has to really let that dog know who the boss is. The other dogs listen just fine. But everyday I see him having trouble with the new dog going in and out to the trash. I'm just about to the point of saying "If you can't get that dog to see you as boss then the dog is going to go" because the dog really does need to know his place. In reality that wouldn't hurt my sons feelings. So now I'm just thinking whether or not to go ahead and try to rehome him.
