Moe is being euthanized this weekend. Despite medication (prozac) and work with a veterinary behaviourist, his aggression has not abated and has, in fact, become increasingly unpredictable and frequent. He has gone after dogs and people in his current foster home, despite every effort to manage his environment as much as possible. This dog can not be safely adopted out, and I have to believe that deep down he is very unhappy. My heart is breaking a little that I couldn't help him, that none of us could help him. Please hold peaceful thoughts for him as he's released from whatever is tormenting him.

I'm so sorry Sherri, that's truly sad. :( Thanks to you and all the wonderful people who tried to help him.

I'm very sorry about this, Sherri. Whatever it was that the rescue person sensed when the original owners relinquished him, I hope that they never get another dog.

I'm sorry to hear this. I know it's the kindest thing to do but that doesn't make it easier.

I'm sorry that his problems couldn't be managed or abated. I agree with you, though, Sherri: a dog with that behavioral disorder is not a happy, balanced dog. A humane euthanasia is an act of mercy in a situation like this one.

I'm so sorry, Sherri. The universe thanks you for being his advocate. What a hard thing.

So sorry, Sherri. Perhaps some sort of neurological or other disorder that wasn't easily diagnosed with existing protocol? I am glad Moe is now at peace.
