  • Is there no way that she can be an outside dog?

  • You can get yourself a big kennel and put her there when you are out, to keep her in control. Please don't get rid of her, you made a commitment you should stick to it, this dog can be trained just like any other pet, if she is now a puppy she will mellow out with age. As far as hurting the baby , unless you allow a toddler to abuse her I don't see this happening, again training her will do wonders....

  • she has a kennel but she has started to make her snout bleed trying to push it through the little holes and she ruined the plastic sheet that sits inside it so she can still dig through the carpet its way too hot outside to leave her out for any number of hours and i am pregnant so i always have some kind of appointment

  • put some time into training your dog while you are still available, aka without child.

  • I think that she needs a better home, and you should look for one for her,, not drop her off at the pound, but find someone with more experience and patience with her, and don't get another dog.

  • FREE TO A GOOD HOME: 2 year old child. Genuine reason, I've just got a new puppy so no longer have the time for the child. Also worried the child may bite the puppy. Child is crate trained and up to date on all shots. Needs home by tomorrow or it'll be put to sleep. Thanks!

  • I would rather see a dog re-homed than have to live in a crate 24/7,, esp, if the dog has anxiety a new baby is going to add to that, there is training and meds, but it seems that if that is what you wanted to do in the first place you would have stated so.

  • Husky's are a great breed, she just needs the attention she deserves, and you and your Husband should have realized that when you got her. I feel so bad for innocent animals that get brought into homes, and then get ignored/neglected.... Find her a good home, ask your vet, neighbors, friends, or family of they know of anyone that will give her the love and attention she deserves.
