2 falls ago we rescues a Rat terrier mix puppy. He was adorible. and infested with worms and very anemic and sickly. ripped at me and my moms heart strings. WELL He is my moms. This is very hard for me to go through with being as it is not my nature but what my parents say goes.. I have been fighting it for months but now my time is running out. Our little sweetheart has an evil side., actually he is doing what he is bred to do. He is a chicken killer and if you know farmer logic... dog kills chicken dog gets shot. Well During the winter he took on this habit he killed My mama hen who was raising 11 chicks.. I fought for him. I won. He a couple weeks ago killed my buffy rooster. and severly injured one of my ducks. I fought again I won. 3 nights ago he tour apart a 4 day old chick. Mind you we are not letting him loose he escaped and it all happens to fast. Much less of tie him to a stake forever away from our house there is nothing we can do to prevent this. I have tried everything exept the cruel. We have our birds penned right now to prevent him form doing it but he is now going to the neighbors and trying. The neighbor says he will shoot him on sight. I cannot keep him knowing that if my 4 or 2 year old sisters open the door and he runs out and kills a chicken we have to shoot him . that ius a brutal death. So I am trying desporatly to rehome him to someone with a yard so he can still run ..... lil kids so he can play maybe other dogs. I will be getting him fixed within the next few weeks (waiting on a good paycheck) Like I said he is not my dog... I would for the life of me keep him forever.. I am not one ot easly part with my beloved pets but its either this or he will be shot. I really need help I need someone I can trust I have spent hours crying over this and now finally have the guts to ask for help so someone please help me and dont critizise be b/c I have to rehome a pet. He is not mine I have no say anymore as to if he can stay. Please help me. here are some pics. His name is Tabby.
