Please forgive me for my Homer Topic...

But, Homer-the-Huge has not been the same loving dog he
was before Goober died!!! Goobers death, messed him up
horribly!!! He has become very hostile toward EVERY person
he meets & every small pet!!! (The only people he is still
friendly with are myself and my Dad!!! (This is a very
extreme case of hostility due to the loss of a pack mate
that has overwhelmed me & possibly the most patient of
pet owners!!!) The elder members here might remember that
when Pop adopted a very abused Nibbler, that he tried to
kill Rufus, but after Nibbler spent some time with Goober
& my supervision, he quickly found his place in the pack!!! (Something like this (nightmare) is very rarely
found in the beagle breed, & It is the LAST time I will
ever buy or adopt a dog that is not a beag!!! Btw, I have
invested soo much in Homer in vet care, that I hate to
repeat myself again....But, I would only kill him if he
killed my innocent beag pup that (might) turn 5 months old
this saturday!!! (On 2 february Homer tried to kill Jethro
for the 3rd time in an unprovoked attack as I was brushing
my teeth before work & Homer drew blood from A PUPPYS neck
& inner rear thigh!!!) I do not have any love for a BEAST
THAT WOULD COMMIT SUCH A HEINOUS ACT!!!

Honestly I don't like the words I would only kill him..... under any circumstances. If you are seriously worried about an attack on a family or pet, then he needs to be retrained and/or muzzled, and possibly rehomed.

My greyhounds had a fight once that was pretty serious, but we worked thru it and they are best friends. However the attacker always wears a muzzle when we are not home because he has space issues.

My heart goes out to you. This must be so hard for you. But at the same time, there must be SOMETHING that can be done to help Homer
maybe muzzling him like Mollys Mom suggested? Or, since it sounds like your at your wits end with him, maybe re-homing is a better option? To a home where he is the only dog? Or, since he is the elder dog, rehoming the puppy? I know you'r probably very attached to the little beagle pup already, but you must feel some attachment for Homer too? Maybe a new puppy was just brought in too soon.

My heart goes out to Homer, he must be hurting so much. Keep us posted, and don't do anything drastic!

Sorry to hear the problems are not going away. He may still be waiting for his buddy to come back and views Jethro as a threat to Goober.

Sending some postive vibes Homer's way. Hang in there Red.

NR,I was so hoping that all was well between Homer and Jethro. Killing a dog is not an option though. The fairest thing would be to rehome Jethro, as he is still a puppy. However if you cant face that, then please find a good home for Homer.In the meantime please leave them in seperate rooms when you are not at home.
