This is a behavior they should have caught at the shelter (I volunteer in one). How very sad for you and your husband that it has come to this. You should return the animal to the shelter were you got him and explain the situation. Clearly you have done everything possible and more, but once an animal attacks a human that seals the deal.

Yes, there are many problem dogs in this society. There are also many problem human beings too. As I get involved in this “dog lover” society, I notice many interesting human traits. Some, who just wants to make money at all cost of the animals. Some, who just wants to be praised and acted as Mighty GOD. Some, who “loves” animal so much that, has reached a point that he or she can no longer care for the number of animals he or she can care. Some… This is totally off the topic now.

Among all my posts, I have never said that Sun is a bad person. She, in my view, is a normal caring person. She didn’t get Hobbs to make money or to be added to one of her many animal collections. She wanted to do the right thing so she adopt. Unfortunately, she adopted an extremely fearful dog who bites. I feel sorry for her. I just feel that a less stimulating environment may be more suitable for that dog. I will not judge her or view her differently whether she saves or euthanizes this dog or not. And I am not on this forum to be popular. I am on the forum to state my opinion. And I start to realize I am stating my opinion to ..

And to yukiko11, if Hobbs is a serial human killer, I will take him and analyze what give him the strength to kill “so many” human. Did Hobbs kill any human? If he did bite with an intent to kill, he should be put down. Did he?

Such as the relationship between Japanese and Chinese? Just kidding!
So, your message tells me that you are willing to take on this dog. OP please send this person a PM, it may be the only way you can save your Hobbs. Thank you for being there to offer a good resolution to this problem. I certainly admire you.
