My brother is working on that right now. Once we have that done I suppose we will know a lot more on what prince is capable of. If a behaviorist says its not possible then we will do what we have to do. I would never re home him without disclosing all information about Prince.

Me too I know he has such potential. He takes such good care of my mom right now and I can't tell you this is breaking her heart. We have never in our lives had to deal with a dog acting out this way. We have always rescued and taken in dogs that didn't have a home my entire life. The problem is the liability of prince because my moms home owners will drop her is she keeps him. Her illness is just starting, she has no income due to working at a school and not being able to be about sick kiddos and she pays for her own health insurance. I can promise we are going to do everything in our power to find prince a forever home yet it is scary with his past. I never want anyone to ever be harmed by an animal.

We are praying God point us in the right direction in finding that one person to believe in Prince as much as we do. Thank you for the support!

Call a behaviorist so you can have Prince evaluated so you would have something to tell someone if they were considering him and also ask the vet for help and contact Best Friends in Kanab, Utah. If Best Friends can take him in, they would.

Here is something on Best Friends about dog biting:
Dogs and Aggression

I kinda figured that Best Friends Animal Sanctuary was out of the question even though I think it is awesome refuge for unadoptable dogs. Your beloved Prince deserves a loving home.

Don't go there yet.

My GSD had fear aggression and yes also bit once, and would have bit again if given the oppurtunity. He was also afraid of children.

I called about 8 trainers, all told me put him down before I had children of my own - they wouldn't even look at him.

My vet gave me two names of behaviorists, and both figured out he was fear aggressive and both said they could fix him. The behaviorist we went with did miracles. He said that only 1 out of every 1000 aggressive dogs ARE NOT fixable. Even the GSD that he brought for his classes, was going to be put to sleep for aggression, and he fixed him. The previous owners had given him up because of his bites. During the training, we did use a shock collar for about 3 months - but it was a life and death situation for my dog, and it worked! He also had to train me to be more of an alpha than I was being.

In six weeks, it was like we had a new dog. I never put him in a situation to make him fail but I also never had to worry about him when family came over or with my own children.

Just make sure the behaviorist is reputable, because anybody can hang up a sign and say they are a dog trainer.

Let's all say a prayer for Prince today that the behaviorist goes well.
