I thought I was doing a good thing getting dogs from the Humane Society but the dogs have been a bit of a problem. I had to start keeping them out because they chase the cats in the house if we are not home... blood on the walls when we returned home, never really figured out if it was dog or cat blood but I will not have the dogs inside. Now we have some chicks and I really wanted the dogs to help me protect the chickens, I let the chickens out (in a dog pen void of dogs) took my dog on a leash and stood next to the pen, she put her nose on the fence and sat shakeing with excitment no movement she would listen when I said sit, or lay down but I know she was much more into getting at the chickens, is there any hope for her she is a sweet dog, loves people and would perfer to stay by your side always but she is a outside dog. I am sorry this is so long, she is a pitbull mix (maybe) not really sure like I said got her from the pound, with issues, some have been resolved some not so much. Thank you for any advise.
