Stacy has been harassing me for another dog, so I put out the call.. I said what’s the meanest one ya got? They brought a Doberman... meh.. he didn’t have the crazy in the eyes that I like in a dog. What else ya got? The brought out a pit and said “Mr Johnson you really don’t want this dog.. literally just broke up a fight with him and another dog..”. The pit was tore up, so I said “well which dog did that?” “Mr. Johnson that dog isn’t available for adoption.”

I said well let’s just take a look at it? Out comes two guys with the dog on the extended polls fighting her every inch of the way.. Third guy with the tranquilizer gun in case she got loose..

I said “you guys are being a little dramatic for that little thing aren’t ya?” I could see the fear in their eyes..

I explained to them that my last dog ate chain link fences and shit out master locks.. and I got her the same way.

They looked confused on how you could train such an animal. I said don’t move I’ll be right back. Got the trusty lead pipe out of the truck.. one quick crack between the eyes and now we know who’s in charge..

It’s the pussification of America I tell ya.. nothing like a good junkyard mutt... once they know the rules of the road anyways..

Meet Sadie the new Johnson mutt.

Congratulations Johnson family👍
Looks like the makings of a loyal companion, see some GS in her.
And lol! Doberman didn’t have the crazy in the eye look. 😂
Nope.

Calm.
Cool.
Collected.😎

Dogs are mans best friend. There’s a reason for that saying. Some folks get it, some folks don’t.
Most want some purse size dog or mellow dog. It’s good there are people who want to give the chain link eating, mastelock shitting dogs a home. Someone has to?
There’s a size to fit all.

Dogs are cool. More so than some people.

i had a doberman growing up. fully trained, cropped ears, the works. when i would walk her people would cross the street to the other side. she looked like she would kill you at any moment. but she was super sweet. she just had that "look"

now as far as dogs that WOULD kill you, a friend of mine had one of those hybrid dog wolf things. you'd be inside the house and it would be pacing back and forth in the backyard staring at you. it was scary as hell. especially when you'd go to play with it, most of the time it was yowling and barking like crazy.

i not gonna show my daughter this thread because shes got a soft spot for "germies." shes dying to get one. congrats on the new pup.

Sadie , looks like she is very happy in her forever home, I would of loved to see their facial expression when you showed Sadie who is the alpha LOL.

So for those that don’t get the joke.. obviously my old dog Sasha was a gentle giant. And this dog sure seemed to be pretty mellow, but she just growled at my son and snapped at my daughter..

crazy toy / food aggressive.. I’m not gonna invest the time to try and train it out of her.. which sucks because she’s already stuck at my side.. doesn’t show any of that towards me.

but fuck that she’s going back to doggy jail. I have too many kids in and out of those house daily to deal with any of that shit.

Want a dog? She’s incredibly smart and loving towards me, anyways.. sure it would be the same for someone without kids.
If I had a enclosed yard I would jump all over her. I can't right now, believe me I would.

after fifteen minutes you won’t be able to peel her off your leg. Lol. Every time I get off the couch she is stuck to my side.

Bummed I gotta take her back. More bummed the humane society is closed until Monday. 😳

sorry to hear that. something may have happened to her when still a puppy. children can be cruel to animals. my two rescue's used hate teenagers on skateboards, and were abused as puppies before we got them.

Hopefully someone on here comes through over the weekend. It breaks me heart to hear she would have to go back there.

.... story gets funnier .... they got the pit put in the backyard & called animal control ..... so this little petite chick shows -up in the dog-catcher rig .... everyone says , “where’s your back-up”???? .... she says , “it’s just me”...... she pulls out this long fiberglass pole .... flips open the lid on the truck .... gets the noose around its neck and drags it out to the truck ..... she crouches down & uses her knee to ‘boat-flip’ the thing like an old-school tuna fisherman with a lift pole! ..... seriously launched the dog straight into the basket ..... fucker came un-glued & she slammed the lid on its head , took off her gloves & split. Craziest thing I’ve ever seen !!! 🤘🤘🤘

It sucks but the kids aspect? You got to do what’s right for the family.
So? Doberman time?😇
As you know I’m a bit of a cheerleader for the breed, and could probably write a small novel here, lol. So I won’t.
On a last note. One thing about them I know you will appreciate. They are an of above average intelligence level to most dogs.
They can’t swim for shit due to no coat flotation and next to no fat bouncy, but they try like hell😂

You’re absolutely doing the right thing. Each of your kids woke up this morning without scared faces. They deserve to stay that way. Growling and snapping . . . Done deal.

I believe so?
That and a lack of a tail which operates as a rudder.
Now, that’s just been mine.
I’ve seen a few that are dock diving maniacs.
With no flotation devices.
Mine can’t swim for shit😂

Good call..................... growling and snapping at kids isn't good. The leap to biting isn't very far. Hopefully, someone here with no kids can take her.

Give the lead pipe to the kids and let them take a whack at her.

Bummed for Sadie. Dogs are the best, but just like humans their past can ruin them.

I thought about the tried and true method of making it happen again and making her understand once and for all where she’s at on the forum pole.. lol. Stacy said she’d rather just get another dog

How about a chihuahua! My spike (may he RIP ) was a gangster! All heart didn't give a fuck what size the other dog was!

Obviously the dog thinks you are the Alpha, the rest of us think it is Stacy. When that dog does that, you have to intimidate her so she understands that It can’t happen. You can train her out of it I think but I guess you have until Tuesday to work it out.

Our 2 oldest dogs are going on 12, really sad to see them aging. We fostered a 3rd that we decided to keep, after fostering at least 10 dogs over the years. We are looking for a dog that will play with our foster (Maizey), she wants to play but our 2 just aren’t as physical as she is. She is Golden Doodle but more of a Golden than a Doodle. We had to break up a few fights the first few weeks but now they are all buddies.

How old is Sadie? Fuck...I don’t want 4 dogs.

Bella, Bo and Maizey.

Maizey is around 8 is our best guess. She was a backyard breeding dog, didn’t even know what stairs were for. We are thinking about finding a dog more around her age so we can be out of the dog ownership business in a few years. Bo and Bella In the next couple years and Maizey and a pal within a year or 2 of each other. We love our dogs but we are getting near the end of the road with having pets.

We definitely don’t want a 2 year old...well until I show my wife these pictures at least.

This totally sucks. She’s an awesome dog and very smart. I hope she finds a kidless home to nest in.
Ours that we adopted 2.5 years ago is good but he also has his quirks. It’s hard when you get them after they already somewhat set in their ways and you don’t have the whole story on their past. He was 5 when we “ adopted” him from the breeder after he had been returned due to the prior owners health.

I have zero patience for a snapping dog...or even a dog that growls at kids. As much as I think you should give that dog some Negative Reinforcement, you still couldn't trust it around the kids.

Sometimes I wish you could just sit the dog down and reason with it. LOL

Too bad but was my first concern after reading your tale....that and how'd she handle 100s of partying strangers at one of your rdp gatherings. Much of her aggressive traits could be trained away but that basic instinct will remain with her forever, usually when you least expect it.
The dog we have now has been a handful. Super cute and everyone wants to just reach out to pet her. It's been 5 years of hard work, one lawsuit and almost lost our homeowners insurance(had to purchase separate liability for her) but she is now 95% trustable...we just have to be careful and vigilant when someone new visits. She still sounds like she'll tear the UPS, FEDEX, AMAZON delivery folks a new asshole though...l😂

I totally wish I could reason with her. “Look dog...you will never find another jackpot life or family like this....just don’t fuck with the kids.”

You guys do not only have your and other kids there but lots of other "strangers".
Sadly, it is the right move for you to move on to a less "mean as f*@k" pet.🥺

There is a Great breeder between you and Vegas. I want to say in or near Meadview. Google G Shepards in Arizona She should show up. I think it is a German type name something like "VON" something. I'll do a search for you also.

I've only met a few cats that are not stuck up bitches.
If you lock your wife in a car trunk she'll fuk you up when you open it ,a cat is no different. A dog would lick your face and wag its tail happily.
I'd choose a dog 100 times out of 100.😂

Our 2 rescues were each about 1 yr old, both males, pure breed Bassett and a Golden. We rescued them separately about 10 years between them. Each tried that aggressive snarl and snap early on. Without thinking, I grabbed them, threw them on their backs and used that Caesar Milan grip on their chests. Done deal. No repeat throughout their long lives. But, you’re doing the right thing. Our situation was totally different than yours.
