Hi Octo, how are you? Yep, it's stories like these that make me think twice about adopting an older dog.

yay.gif very cool thank you for posting that US!! Shepards really are amazing dogs. I don't know if I'd want another Karelian, they're too high drive. But a German Shepard, they're exceptional.

My parents told me that we had a German Shepherd when I was 2 years old, but supposedly when I took his bone away he bit part of my ear off, so they had to give him up. sad2.gif Maybe that is why I was touched by this dog.

wave.gif Good morning US, doing just fine although I wish it would warm up a little time.gif

Wow, a German shepherd bit your ear? damned.gif Have you had any fear of dogs growing up because of it?

sad2.gif I'd get rid of a dog that bit a child too. Instantly. We have problems with our male Karelian, he can't be around children. He's never bitten anyone and I make a habit of taking his food away whenever I want so he knows I'm Alpha but he has gone after kids snarling and scared the hell out of them if they have food, and I don't ever want him to bite someone. He gets locked up when kids are around. They aren't pets. But the female, she'll put up with anything with never even a mean look.

I'm glad to hear you are fine and wtf2.gif hasn't it warmed up there yet?

I do not have a fear of dogs, but I will not approach or pat a dog that I do not know or that the owner has not sort of introduced us both, if you know what I mean.

But, when I see a German Shepherd dog there is a twinge of something there. hug.gif

The once bitten twice shy thingie only applies to people!

Isn't there any way to train the dog to accept all humans as alpha or are they just the 'alpha' and that is that?

I think he sees children as puppies to be put in their place. Food is the factor in every conflict, no food, no problem. That's why I made a habit of taking his from him. And probably why you were bit as a toddler. hug.gif

True, knowing my mother she probably gave him a big steak bone.
