Okay so last year we moved from our home in a development to a homestead with more land. We have two german shepherds. One is a very, very friendly older dog that will lay next to the chickens and let them PECK her and she doesn't even care and the other one is a 3 year old dog. The 3 year old was never exsposed to horses before until recently. We brought my horse and a friend of ours horse home. Well I took the older dog back to the barn and she saw the horses and didn't even care about them. The other one (I've taken her back their 3 times now) jumped up on my horse and bit her nose and ripped hair off and left a scrape on her nose(no blood). Well I was to say the least FURIOUS!!!!! Then I brought her down their to day and tied her up on a long leash while I mucked the stalls (the horses were outside) and then one of the chickens got loose from the run. And she attacked it. I ran over and pulled her off of the chicken. But she left a HUGE gaping wound under her wing. The skin was completly ripped open (4 inches long and 3 inches wide). We culled her because she was in so much pain.....and could not walk. I am so sick of living in fear that she is going to get loose from the fenced in dog area by the house and kill my whole flock of chickens or bite one of my horses again. I think that she thinks that every animal is food and then she can hurt anything and that no animal is stronger then her. I think that if their was a lion in our backyard she would try to eat it. But at the same time she is so sweet, and kind and she sleeps in my bed at night and shes my baby. But I love my horses more. She is also not very nice to little kids but she is perfectly fine with teens/adults etc. I just don't know what to do. I kinda want to surrender to the local humane no kill shelter. I was thinking about trying to sell her I just don't want to sell her and have her end up with an abusive owner. But the other problem is that she CAN NOT eat regular dog food.....she has to eat a raw diet aka barf diet. I buy raw meat, bones from a butcher and also give her vegetables and fruits. I think that a shelter would not feed her that and she would end up getting sick like she did when we bought her (before the hundreds of dollars that we spent at the vet to find out what the problems was......severe food allergies, stomach issues etc.) and then she would eventually die from severe diarrhea/vomiting (what happens when she eats dog food.....we have tried just about every brand to and many, many meds that all didn't work for her....until the raw diet). I think that our farm lifestyle is not the lifestyle for her. I have tried to train her to be okay around the other animals....but it doesn't work. Her parents (we don't own them) are both narcotics/police dogs and are imported from Germany. I want to enjoy my farm and not have to worry about the safety of my animals. And next spring I might be getting a couple of dairy goats too. So I don't want to worry about their safety because of the dog. I just don't know what to do.....I'm very upset and frusterated. I love all of my animals, I have never abused, abandoned or neglected any animal. I guess this is just a vent.....but does anyone have any ideas???
