My boyfriend and I started dating about 2 years ago and late last year we decided to move in together. My boyfriend always had this very small chihuahua (around 5 pounds), and I always wondered what made him buy it. Finally one day I asked him and he told me he bought the dog for his ex gf and when he found out she was cheating on him and they broke up he kept the dog(???) Anyway before we decided to move in together, I'd been looking around for a dog for my four year old son, and now that we're living together he gets kind of offended when I mention of getting another dog. He has this chihuahua that hates kids and I personally don't even like chihuahuas, besides the fact he bought the dog for his ex, he can't expect me to have some deep connection with a dog he bought for someone else and the dog is fully aware of it. He keeps the dog in the house, and for whatever reason it isn't house trained, its peed in my bed over 3 times and it has permanently damaged the carpet so bad we pretty much have to keep him in one room and barely ever let him out. I don't know what to do to get him to understand the dog does not fit our lifestyle. I don't care if he keeps him but I at least want to get something for my son but his excuse is the chihuahua will be scared of it, or they won't get along. I don't see my son being 10 years old outside playing catch with the chihuahua thats always trying to attack him. Help?
