I havnt been blogging actively for the past few weeks because i was busy with my new puppy that i was so waiting for 🙂
Hes a total sweetheart and instantly took my heart away when i saw him, 3 months old, a mix of spits and a russian samoyd, Rather a common breed in my part of the world. I was busy house training him and teaching him commands and was happy to see that he got pretty well adjusted with my other dog pepsi. We named him Master shifu inspired by the kungfu pands coz he luked like a shifu hehe
But a week down the line i realized that he has a habbit of biting and even though its just a playful bite for now it can get bad once he grows up if not trained properly. Also his breed barks alot, No matter how much i tried, his biting n excessive barking wont go off.
I live in an apartment complex sorta house with my inlaws and a few neighbors living in the same compound. Pepsi ( my poodle) was a much mellow dog and was fully trained when i got married, where as shifu is so active and hyper that i have been unable to train him well so far. i have never trained a hyper n a slightly aggressive dog before, i dont feel am cut for it. Although its only been 2 weeks and i know it takes more for a dog to get adjusted and be trained offcourse but if i can see that i am unable to stop him from bad habbits and my neighbors are getting disturbed by his barking I feel it wont b fair on him to live in a place where he cant freely be himself or be trained properly with me and neither on me if i cant handle him well. 😦 I even discussed it with the vet and he said that if i feel i cannot handle him now is the best time to return him, so that you both don’t get too attached to each other.
As sad as i may feel or no matter how much i cry by just the thought of letting him go i will have to return him back and the sooner the better so that he can go to a better home, a family who can keep him and train him well and adjust himself there. I am also feeling so guilty coz its not his fault that i neva trained a hyper dog before and i am unable to manage him properly, i feel so bad and ashamed of my self, but its for the betterment of us both. I am going to miss that lil shifu face so much:'(
You think am doing the right thing?
