Marco is a brindle colored 2 1/2 year old Cattle Dog Mix. He's great with kids and cats of all ages. He's protective, and alittle hyper at times. He also knows a few commands like Sit, Stay, Give Paw, and Lay. He's had all his shots, and he's been dewormed. He isnt neutered but that can be arranged upon request. I, unfortunately, have to give him up because he doesnt get along with my other dogs. Marco needs a home where he's the only dog and he can have more attention then I can give him. I'm asking 100.00 (Totally Negotiable!) to insure he has a good home.

Considering this is likely the dog from your other post. It's mildly deceiving that it's not listed as cattledog/bully mix. And it's not the dog doesn't get along with the other dog. It's dog aggression issues likely stemming from the breeds the dog happens to be. Also mildly sad that last week you were requesting help and this week you are re-homing. So the puppy means more? What happens when the puppy matures and is aggressive potentially? While it isn't yours, you are loosing your dog because of it.

you also mentioned in your other post that your girlfriend has young kid(s) one who is autistic and you worry how the dog will be with the kid(s)..

If I were you, I'd be VERY honest about what type of environment this dog should be placed in..

While you feel the dog would do better in another home, I have to say, it doesn't sound like you've worked on this problem yourself to try and keep the dog in YOUR home. It sounds like it's easier for you to dump the dog and it's problems on someone else vs trying to remedy the situation yourself.

just my opinion

If I wanted to DUMP him that easily. I wouldnt be working with him and allowing him near my puppy. Which so far his tail is wagging and hes not showing any signs of aggression.

As for kids. He happens to be very good with my 4 year old niece. I just worry that if my girlfriends autistic son has a seizure infront of him, what he'd do.

How did you get this dog? Why did you buy a dog that has aggression when you have a child/niece that has seizures? DOGS learn to cope with someone with disability

How smart are you?

I raised him from a puppy. How did you think I got him? Look, i'm just trying to find him a nice home. Theres no law against that. Yet everyone here acts like its a big sin to 'rehome' your animal.

What's the difference with a child with or w/o disability child is still a child!!! I find it defensive when you say you want to get rid of the dog BUT yet the dog is DA towards your child however she is related to you. Also you want to find a better home that has kids? That doesn't make any sense

Try listening. I said he loves kids. My 4 year old niece, who isnt special needs, can hold him and kiss him, he loves her. What i'm concerned about is the 5 year old autistic boy that my girlfriend has. The boy scares me when he has a seizure, so i'm concerned about the dog's reaction. Not all dogs react as you have it painted in your perfect picture. We're also looking into getting him a seizure alert dog, as i have meantioned before, and i cant have my dog trying to attack this dog. Do you understand now?

No... I'm not going to understand! I had a dog whom has DA and I think she was perfect around my brothers/sisters I think you just chose not to give in to find a good trainer. I think Dogs would know what to do when a child/adult that has seizures! That's so retarded that you think just b/c your g/f's son has seizures and your dogs is DA TO OTHER DOGS not to humans you chose not to work with your dog at all but to hand him over to another family

I don't think it's right!

I'm not the one that cant seem to read when someones saying that they're concerned about a child by putting the child first. The boy needs a seizure alert dog, and since i dont have money coming out my ass for a certified trainer, then my dog gets to find a new home where he can be loved and taken care of. If you werent so thick-headed, maybe you'd see that.

You know you members on here are hypocritical. I saw how you were supportive of one member when she had to rehome her dog, due to the dog wasnt the right dog for the situation, kissing and hugging her. But with me and another memeer I noticed that you're acting like its a sin to do whats best. As if it doesnt bother me or that other member to have to give up our dogs.

I've had him since he was 7 weeks. Okay, yeah it does bother me, but i'm doing what I think is right by this child and my dog. If you people cant see that, then nothing I say is going to convince you otherwise. It would be nice to get alittle support on the issue, not all negativity because you're deciding to tell me what you all think is best for my dog and my situation.

But i know nothing about you EXCEPT that you want to get rid of your dog. It makes it hard to offer support. You may be the nicest guy ever, but I don't know that. I fear that you are seeking support in the wrong place.

Did I read that you also have a puppy? As someone who would like to get an assistance dog for a disabled child, I would suggest you look into the rules. Many of the assistance dog agencies require that the dog be an only dog- so you may be rehoming that one too, soon.

That puppy is my brothers dog. We just watch it for him while hes at work. Quit trying to make this something its not just to make yourselves look good. Its not a crime to rehome your pet. Sometimes things dont work out and its the best thing for the animal.
