Recently a 7 month miniature pincher was brought for evaluation. My client was told by the couple whom they adopted the dog from that he was found in the street wondering with his mother and that was all they knew. Initially when brought home he was quiet and shy but within days he became comfortable and began showing signs of aggression.

Upon evaluating the dog, I guesstimated he was older than previously believed (15 months) with a Veterinarian guessing the same. After the first week, the dog was still shy, easily agitated when corrected and exhibited dog aggression.

After my evaluation I pressed my client to see if they can get more information and to let the couple know he was much older than they had said. After much pressing, the couple had agreed that they withheld information on the dog and the story given was not all true.

The couple stated they felt bad that they did not raise the dog properly and that he had gotten out of hand, and simply wanted to find him a better home. They agreed to never properly socializing the dog and didn’t have the means to pay for training. Their idea of socializing was bringing the dog around other dogs to see but he was so aggressive that they just took him home. When they had guest over, the dog would begin to bark and even bit someone that they just put him in a room without ever correcting the behavior.

This is a classic story of the quote above, both socializing and training go hand and hand but lacking in one department will only lead to failure in all. Getting a dog requires an investment of patience and time with sometimes having to pay for service to help remedy the situation. For those seeking help, there are avenues to explore but you have to do some research in finding help. I personally help my clients giving deep discounts to those that truly don’t have the means and need help and are willing to do the work to get their dogs trained and socialized.
