In Reply to: Best decision about a biting Jack Russell
: I have a two year old male Jack Russell who has started to bite. He had not broken skin until today when he bit a 10 month old in the face! The wound could have been much worse. He has known and been protective of this child since the child was 3 months old. My dog is so attached to me, and I to him. He has been obedience trained but continues to be aggressive toward other dogs, our cats, (which we have been able to handle) but now he is biting humans due to his inate protectiveness. My partner says he is an accident waiting to happen and that today's incident is a warning. He feels the next time Beau could disfigure a child or adult and we would have to live with that the rest of our lives. Is it in Beau's best interest to put him to sleep since he is a biter and very attached to me, or to try to find him a home through Jack Russell rescue? I would not trust any other medium to try to find him a home. This is a nightmare as I love him so much. Please advise.
