Update-going into Rescue,anyone in Utah?

Draper Animal Control has a boy about to be pts.. he's I think 7 mo old. Bit the family's child. He's got through today unless something is arranged for his adoption.

Additional info about Cooper

This is another message from owner that was sent to a Rescue Group-


Quote:
I was contacted by a rescue friend in Utah trying to help the owner of this dog. All the information I have is posted here. Please don't contact the owner with negative comments. The goal is to help this dog. Below is an email from the owner giving more insight into the situation.

Cooper our Golden Retriever is 16 months old. We have had him since about 7 weeks of age.
Cooper has always been pretty aggressive at home and he is definitely the Alpha at home. Heís the boss!!
Cooper has really bad food aggression. Not so much with his own food, but if he gets a hold of any human food...he protects it and growls and shows teeth to STAY AWAY! We gave Cooper a small dog bone when he was 7 months old and realized that that was a mistake. He growled and was worried we were going to take it from him.
Cooper has had behavioral issues at home with tendencies of ripping apart our mail to chewing on spoons and knives to ripping apart pillows. We are very busy and I feel like Cooper hasnít received the proper attention that he deserves and this could be why he rebels sometimes.
Cooper has had some incidents of biting. He has bitten my daughters friend over a dog bone. He has bitten my daughter over food (sheís 18) He has bitten my wife and I unprovoked when I was petting him. I think he didnít like something so he turned to go after me and my wife had to pull him off of me. We were both bitten on our hands and wrist. That was in October. Cooper recently bit my 11 year old on the forearm unprovoked (petting) and received 8 stitches. He has been with Draper Animal Control for the past 8 days since the incident occurred.
Cooper is set up to be euthanized this Friday morning. We are trying to give this beautiful boy once more chance and I truly believe he can be rehabilitated. We just arenít the right people to do do. We canít take the risk at home with our 3 kids 😕

This breaks my heart...

I hope people read this and realize why we all advise training! None of this had to happen. I wonder why they didn't post this the day they took him in vs waiting until the day before he's to be put down. I've contacted a rescue group in TX but they don't have any connections this far away and not enough time to reach out to find any.

Too bad they didn't say who the breeder was!

Unfortunately, most rescues will not be willing to take on the responsibility/liability. 8 stitches is pretty serious. Someone experienced in working with resource guarding is this dog's best option. The biting while being petted is a little concerning. It makes me wonder if there is an underlying health issue (possible pain).

I sent a message to Companion Golden Retriever Rescue in SLC. I'm not overly optimistic though.
