There aren't enough of those, and I would still be suspicious. You can retrain a horse out of fear issues, etc., but Some dog habits are not ever cured, like chronic running off and biting.There are some rescues that will test out if their dog's are good with cats and children. A really good one would.
I would NEVER keep a dog that voluntarily bit. I ONLY expect my dog to bite someone that was threatening my life, therefore I don't expect that I will ever see that.
DD's neighbors keep a rotten pitbull --I like pitbulls, btw--that bit their niece in the face, yet they still keep it. If it gets out I (and the rest of family) will shoot it on sight. We will give it a chance, 1st shot to the flank, 2nd shot to the body/head.
I love dogs, and dogs behave around me, like the two miniature poodles at my closing last night, who Were yappy, then sat down and were quiet, only to bark when I said the word, "dog" before I left!
Must have triggered them.
I have been threatened by dogs at only 2 closings, and they were out of control biters.
Kindness would be to put them down.
MY GS had the Best time greeting everybody at my Salsa 2020: THE PROTEST! last Saturday. LOTS of petting to go around. I have raised her from 8 weeks old.
She is, of course, police dog material, and some communities won't let you keep a GS, or a Doberman, or a Pitbull.
I sold a TB for meat several years ago. He was a bucker, when his back was strained, and would often pull back and fall over. Pretty horse, that a 15yo girl would have bought cheap and gotten injured with. I got him free.
He threw out his back on some ice. Vet said a Chiropractor. I Said the meat market auction.
Don't become a bleeding heart that gets other people hurt.
