Cletus is my 9 yr old 115lb pit bull. Cletus was born in my home on Memorial Day weekend in 2003. When I have a pet such as a horse or dog it is considered a life time obligation for me. I have had several pets who spent their entire lives with me and died peacefully of old age. Cletus has become very destructive of late and I have been unable to break the habit. He does not kill cats, chickens or other livestock. BUT.... he very much likes to have a taste of what they are eating even though he has food available 24/7. This is the damage done by him in the last 3 days. I am sick and tired of buying or scrounging wood to make repairs on a daily basis. Meet Cletus This is the old door that was on the shed, it is broke worse on the other side and we patched it up 4 times with chicken wire before completely replacing it yesterday. This is the door to the COOP that he has broken into I don't know how many times. Note the missing piece, he literally at that piece. This is the old hot tub where he hunts for squirrels. This is the new door we just put up YESTERDAY, on the shed (I use the shed for the smaller chicks so they are not in with the adult chickens) This was a little barrier I used to use to let the chicks see outside more while they were in the shed. I am to the point that I am completely frustrated, yet feel that I have a responsibility to this dog. But he is ripping every structure we have as outbuildings apart. Should I keep him or send him to a no kill shelter? I feel guilty even asking this, but must admit my first thought when I walked out there today and saw the door, was to load up, shoot and bury, problem solved. I worry about who will adopt him and wonder if it would be kinder to put him to sleep. He has lived with me from birth and a new home may cause even more behavior issues.
