The past few days have been really difficult with my Baby Bosco. I love him more than I ever thought I could love a dog. We even got three little stockings for our three little pups. Recently, he has become something of an abusive boyfriend and we have nick named him Emily Rose! He goes psycho on you or will attack me, but then comes sulking back and gives me kisses, acting affectionately apologetic.
His aggression is out of hand and his possessiveness of me has driven us to the point where we are beginning the re-homing process. I don’t even know where to start. I just know I need to do it before deployment and while Hubs and I can go through it together.
Right before we left to go back to VA he scratched me pretty badly across my face and recently he has been picking fights with Jonesie for no reason. He growls at Hubs when he goes to kiss me or hand me a drink, and he has gotten really aggressive mixed with possesiveness. I know I don’t want to take him to a shelter because I know we have gone there looking for dogs and it just isn’t where I want my baby to be.
I’ve never had to get rid of a dog and it hurts me more than I thought I could hurt. He is so much more than just a dog to me. He really is my little baby and I feel so guilty that we weren’t the right fit, or that we aren’t a good enough fit for him anymore.
I have been praying about it and I really think he deserves a better home. Possible with no other pets and definitely no children. I know I can’t let it get to the point where I have to out him down. My heart would shatter more than it is right now! Maybe we can put up a flier at Dogtopia and they can help find my boy a new home!
Please pray for our family at this point in time. He and I most definitely need it!
