@Vicaroo1000 thank you for being honest! I really appreciate it, the thought has crossed my mind, I'm not going to lie. but I wish I could explain myself better when I describe Aldo's behavior. I actually did watch that episode you are talking about.. Maybe it is because I love him, but I don't think his lunges are aggressive in the same manner of that dog, he does not show teeth, or growl. He only does it when he is over excited, when he is allowed to run around.. When he is in a controlled environment, with a leash or when he is in my bed resting he could care less about lunging at anybody. I know it might be a fine line between the two behaviors, but I really do think in my heart it will get better with age if I am able to control those explosions with him as he matures, enough times that he will forget the behavior. I would hate to let him go.. I don't even think there are bulldog rescues in my area, though I wouldn't mind driving if that's what it took to find someone that could give him the care he needs.
Also, @Vicaroo1000 Aldo and Katara are pretty happy, despite everything, they have a big backyard for the mornings and evenings; as long as they are alone they do fine, they can't play outside with the kids, but they still slide down the slide and play. when were are around, I place them in the exercise pen and they at least feel like they are around everyone here and also in their crates which they both love; Also, when it's only me in the house I let them roam free, Aldo has never lunged at me, he doesn't get excited with me, so he has never done it.. .. so, it's a lot of moving them around, but they are not unhappy dogs.. I have left Aldo a few times in his crate while I let the girls play with Katara, even though he did whine and looked awful sad, I don't think he has a low quality life.. you know what I mean.. he gets to come to my bed at night, he plays and runs, he has a large slide which he loves outside, he eats good food, tripe, he gets a lot of cuddles from the girls on the bed..
Rehoming him is always going to be a possibility for him, but at this point I feel like there is more I can do for him, there has to be..
