julie, whats the difference? zip big smile but i think fostering is the way to go

he said i could take the girls to meet him and see what happens but to be fair both my girls are quite laid back ( i check kendras pluse regularly shes that laid back)

Rich was taking about fostering ike, as hes been there so long so i shall just take my girls to sharons and see who they get on with the best., i think that is eaiser.

Teddy Bear was returned to us very soon after being rehomed as it was alleged that he had bitten someone, I say alleged as we were never given any proof that this actually happened apart from via word of mouth, email & telephone.

Long story short is that the person wanted compensation but after finding out that it was the new owners that were liable & not LBDR the whole thing was dropped.

Teddy then spent 5 months in foster being assessed & having his reactions to new people & situations watched very closely, Teddy never once showed any signs of aggression to anyone or anything. So after 5 long months & not one single issue or problem it was decided that Teddy really deserved a home of his own, everything that had allegedly happened & everything that we knew about Teddy was fully disclosed to anyone & everyone that enquired about him & Teddy found a wonderful home with people that took all of this on board, he instantly bonded with the existing dog & the people so after a couple of visits off he went.

Teddy proved to be the most perfect dog in the home, he was great with everyone that he met & all visitors were welcome, he was great with kids & a fantastic companion for the existing dog, they could not believe just how perfect he was & did not believe he would ever bite anyone......But there was a problem, Teddy was being very aggressive towards other dogs outside of the home. The people worked hard with Teddy, they spent a lot of time & money trying to deal with this issue but sadly after quite a while they had to admit defeat & that theirs was not the right environment for him. So with tears & broken hearts they brought Teddy back.

These people truly loved him & we were in constant contact with them throughout, they could not have wished for a better dog in the home & it was an incredibly sad day for all involved.

Teddy has been good since coming back but we do not take chances, he has been a bit grumbly with a few dogs but we really haven't had the major issue that the family had, we do have to test him more but we are starting to feel that Teddy's issues are more about him & his safety zone. The foster home he was in was very isolated & although there were many visitors (human & canine) it was not the same as being out in the big wide world & it seems to be strange dogs out in the big wide world that he is struggling to cope with.

It is so sad to see him back, he truly is a fantastic guy & it never helps a dog find a home when it has been returned to rescue but now poor Teddy has come back twice crying

This is very sad, poor Teddy. I do understand this problem, as you know I also live in a quiet area & Neo is great with dogs & people alike here, but if I take him into town with me he leaps & dances when he sees another dog, it is ok for me to say to folk don't worry he wont hurt you but he is a big dog & it must look scary. I am currently working on this with him using what is called abandonment training, I will let you know how it goes.

Don't really know Gaynor, I think he would be best suited to a rural life as things are at the moment or someone that knows the breed extremely well and we also need to be aware and take on-board what we were told happened, I think like many dogs if he felt he had to defend you he would, he is fine with the dogs and people here and when we have met people in the street he has been friendly, we have muzzle trained him and he does not mind wearing it when he goes out he seems to just think if it as an extension to his lead and having it on means he is going for a walk, I think the quite life suits him well he loves to sun bathe in the garden and likes a little game but also likes just having a mooch about, he enjoys walks over the fields, he is all in all a happy dog with a lot on love inside him

PostSubject: Re: Teddy - bullmastiff- Homed   Fri Jun 10, 2011 1:18 am

I think you could be right Gaynor, he seems to have similar issues to my 7 yr old Roxy.Roxy only tolerates a few dogs on our walks, and there the ones she knows so well, we have to keep her on her lead when we see a dog comming into sight. She seems to be worse when i am with her, but more controlled when shes with Geoff. And im not a wimp when it comes to my dogs. Teddy could well of been guarding, or like Roxy abit of guarding/nervousness. U wouldnt think nervousness when u see them wanting to kick off, but in their mind its strike first. And i dont mean there this fighting dog, just bravado, if any of this makes sense. With Roxy its ongoing work, BUT with time and patience and perseverance it is controlled.
Teddy, u will be fine with the right family, i'd have u in a heartbeat.....xx

My Ridgeback,Kanu,went through a period several years ago where he wanted to literally KILL anything that came near him.This was because he`d been attacked several times by other dogs and the last attack was particularly nasty and was the last straw for him.
Like you said Cal,it doesn`t look like nervousness when they are kicking off,it`s a pretty scary sight.

I worked really hard with him to convince him that I could and would protect him against harm and that I was in charge of making decisions about protecting us.I also had to learn to keep my heartbeat slow and stay calm when another dog approached us because they pick up on raised heartbeat in a split second and then think that something is wrong.So it can end up being a vicious circle with the owner actually causing the dogs reaction.

It took 4 months of work before he was safe to let off the lead around other dogs and there has not been a seconds problem since that day.....in fact he is one of the most balanced dogs you will ever come across.

My new dog ,Ziva,is frightened of people,especially men.
She `s still a work in progress but has come a long way in the few weeks that I`ve had her.I don`t know what happened to her to make her like this but I don`t think there`s any quick fix for this girl.She is a very determined little Bulldog and she is not going to be easily convinced of anything.

I think its a good sign that Teddy is behaving differently in LBDR crossed for you Teddy.

Teddy is more tolerant of dogs now he is back at Sharons, kinda makes sense. Roxy only wants to have a go on her territory i.e. home, on her walks. When we go anywhere strange she is very different, she is very aware and watchful but doesnt want to have a go. So thats telling me she is pretty guarded with what she thinks belongs to her and in her case the area we live. Also when she is on her lead she wants to have a go, off lead she tends to ignore the other dogs better. I wouldnt want to push my luck in this situation but when with geoff he hasnt come across a problem off lead. Maybe its me, like u said gaynor they pick up on the owners reaction very quickly, best to stay calm and in control.
And then at home, Roxy is the biggest cuddle monster ever and when Layla wants to play its game on. Layla is the opposite so friendly with everyone and every dog.
