I’m going to do the best and say goodbye this week and have someone come to the house and put him down.
I wish there was another option but there isn’t. Like someone else said he had 7 great years. If my uncle never got him he would of died 7 years ago.

Why do you have to put the dog down? Perhaps give the dog to humane society or shelter with wife present since the dog protective around your wife. It will be a tough step to let go, but your kids more important. At least the terrier would have a chance if the society can rehabilitate.

Most animal shelters do not have the capacity to rehabilitate biters. Those kinds of shelters are rare and usually full, and they draw strict lines as to which dogs they will even attempt to rehabilitate.

You would have to do something very shady but possible that route. Investigate the area for a no kill shelter and then leave it there. If they don't just take them in, wait for a dry warm day and night and drop it off in a crate with some food and water hoping you're not caught in the act or on camera. As I said, shady, but once they have the animal they wouldn't kill it and try by whatever means to re-home it or they'd have to just house the animal probably in a crate for life as if they couldn't fix it, it would bite others or other animals. And that's no good solution either as it's a prison sentence.

I grew up staying at my great aunts during the day while my parents worked, and she bred those thick, pure bred Rottweilers. I was part of their family. They actually had to keep me inside when people would come look at puppies because those dogs would protect me. This is coming from someone who loves and respects those dogs...

I am struggling with our small Schnauzer as well. Her way of playing has historically been to nip and do that playful biting game that puppies do. It's not a big deal to adults. She stops when you tell her to and it is non-aggressive, but it freaks my kids out. Well, as she's gotten older she has become more aggressive. I think it is because her sight and hearing and going out and she gets surprised easy. Your dog might be experiencing this as well. Anyway, pretty she couldn't hurt a fly as I had to get half of her teeth removed. Luckily, nothing has really happened yet, but there have been some border line close calls. That said, if she continues to show aggression (versus playing a bit rough) she's gone. Been with Mrs Jago for 12 years, with me for 10 years. She is spending half of her life right now in a bathroom sleeping. Kind of sad to see. My kids are first. She has one more shot to prove she can distinguish between play and aggression. Rott or lap dog... gone.

Well this is what’s going on with max. He’s going to a training school. Another opinion was offered and there are no signs of mental illnesses. So we’re going to take him to school so he can be corrected by a professional.

I hope Max is able to respond to the training. Remember that you have to help maintain the training at home. You have to be disciplined to ensure your dog remains disciplined.

Yeah I know. He’s been listening to every word and command I’ve been saying since he bite me two weeks ago and I put my foot down

That's why we haven't been able to train our cat (yes, cats are trainable). You have to train yourself. Dog training is really dog and dog owner training.

You asked for the right thing to do: kill your dog.

I've been around family pets growing up my whole life. My mom is a licensed vet. I've right now four kids under 10, plus two cats and two dogs. It's a full house.

The worst pet owner is a neglectful one and one not willing to face facts. Kill your dog now before he permanently ruins everyone else's life.

You did a good thing by taking in an abused dog. But changing the safe environment, introducing your own kids, and even worse - other animals. You'll regret not putting the dog down when he mauls something. Pets are family yes - but they are also animals.

Do the right thing.

I respect your answer but I’m giving him a chance with k9 dog training. I’d rather give max the option to correct it. We never did dog training or the family neither practiced trainings.
If this doesn’t work then we gave the dog the chance that he deserves.
