  • If he's a specific breed - a rescue will know how to deal with that particular type of breed and find him a loving home.
    Other than that, I would ask some shelters for some advice or openings.

    Good luck!

  • This may not be the popular train of thought but if the dog has gone after you and your child then have it put down humanely. Don't send it to a new home and put someone else's child in danger!

  • Honestly if the dog is that bad that it is going after you adn your child then i would have it put down. My daughter was attacked by a friends dog, they swore this was a one time thing and wouldnt happen again we begged them to put the dog downa dn they refused. the dog attacked another little girl, her injuries were no where near as bad as my daughters but her mother told themt o put it down or they would sue them. Dogs who do this dont just do it once they continue to do it, if a dog has hit that point you need to put them down for everyones safety.
