    Hi Rosemarie, I feel your pain and this is one topic close to my heart as a few here know FTSE has a aggression thing he is so over protective of me but lately he has snapped at me a few times and believe me it scares the hell out of me I just walk away but as for a baby or three year old they wouldn't have the chance too. FTSE seems to be getting worse the older he gets I blame myself have I let him get too close to me I am stern with him but I guess there are times we are not.

    Is this a common thing with Bulldogs as lately I have heard this quite a bit.

    Rosemarie I think you have made the right decision for the safety and peace of your family but it is one of the hardest things you will go through on Tuesday, sending prayers to you and your family that you get through this and Chanel handles it good.

    Rosemarie, I'm so glad to see you back on EBN, we have missed you... and congrats on the baby girl. We really need to see some pics!!!

    Your story absolutely breaks my heart, we went thru a somewhat similar experience w/Walter not too long ago. He was very aggressive w/my husband, and occasionally me... we hired a professional dog trainer in Nashville to help us out. She gave us a checklist of things to do, and thankfully having him neutered made a world of difference for us.

    Please do NOT beat yourself over re-homing Brutus... I LOVE my dogs, make NO mistake about it... they are like my children. BUT my skin family comes first... if my dogs attacked someone in this house they would have to go. You have two little kids in your home... they are your FIRST priority, and you being the wonderful mom that you are already know this. I can only imagine how difficult this will be for you, but I would do the same in your position.

    Sending you lots of hugs and prayers... please don't be a stranger, we are here for you and the family!!!

    Rosemarie & Family -

    I am so sad to gear of Brutus's behavior. I am a volunteer at a Bulldog Rescue, and as traumatic as it is for you to rehome Brutus, the rescue group will rehome him to the right family, what I mean to say is, they don't just rehome him to anybody. There are home inspections and meet-and-greets with the other dogs in the household (if there are any), personality evaluations, and so on. I would also explain to the volunteer how extremely hard this is for the family and his best bud Chanel. You may be able to get updates from the family and rescue group!

    It is always very hard to lose a family member, but you are doing the right thing.

    Patti & Louie

    I am so sorry this has happened. I agree that you may have done nothing to cause this. That being said, it had to be the hardest decision to make, but you were right to do it. You couldn't risk Brutus going after one of your children. <hugs> to you all.
