I have had dogs most of my life. We actually have 4 dogs now. A bassett, 2 beagles and a boxer. The boxer is my problem. We purchased him in June of 2006 at a local pet store. He was 10 weeks old. Cute as a puppy can get. We have had him around all different sorts of people since he came to our home. Over the past couple of months he's become really aggressive towards people in general. Not our family or their friends (but I don't trust him ) Well to top all the growling issues, this past Saturday he jumped thru the front door window after the mailman. We ended up taking him to the emergency vet. He severed a main blood supply to his leg and was actually bleeding to death. if we wouldn't of got him there when we did he would have died. I know this is a HUGE problem. But I love this dog and I am worried. He is the only dog I have ever had who really is attached to me and loves me like a dog should. (I know that sounds corny but he's definately a momma's boy) What I'm asking is has anyone ever had an aggressive dog and if so what can I do to help or stop this situation? husband says we have to get rid of him but I can't bare to think of that. He would be affraid, and feel abandoned. and frankly I don't think my kids could deal with it either. ANY ADVISE PLEASE!!!!!!!
