Sad but True...

As sad and hard as it was... I am so glad we have only had to make the decision to say good-bye to ill or old pets. Having to make the decision to let go of a pet due to aggression has not been something we have ever had to do. But sadly, it is a decision that some have had to make. This is a reminder to me to NEVER judge anyone based on that decision. Very well written words about it... The Burden of Euthanizing an Aggressive Dog

Interestingly, I was searching for a picture of an aggressive looking Dane to use for this post... and almost all the pictures were depicting them as most of them are... Gentle Giants. I'm not naive to believe that there is no such thing as an aggressive Great Dane, but it does look like it is rare. 

Blessed to own a Gentle Giant ~

  1. Sadly, I know what you are talking about. We had a little adopted doggie that we had to euthanize due to aggression that just got worse and worse as the months went by. The vet characterized her as feral and even the doggie adoption people agreed that she would just bounce from home to home (we were her third placement). It was heartbreaking, but I truly believe that she was suffering as well. People are so quick to judge, but they need to back off and remember that every situation is unique.
