If there is anything harder than euthanizing a beloved dog for serious behavioral problems, I don’t know what it is.
Usually conversations about serious behavioral problems include three primary options for dealing with all serious behavioral problems: 1) Keep the dog and work with a trainer or behaviorist to mitigate or manage the problem, 2) re-home the dog if it can be done safely and responsibly, and 3) euthanize the dog.
Needless to say, option three should only be considered if options one and two are not viable. Here are criteria that I suggest everyone consider:1.

I’ll get the conversation started, but I greatly value the input of you as a reader, if you have any to share.
But be careful of making judgments here: I have seen people whose lives were almost destroyed because of an aggressive dog.
People who hadn’t had company for over a decade and whose marriages were on the rocks (or over) because of it.
