I'm so sorry that your son was so badly injured and sorry that he and his girlfriend have to make some sad decisions. I'll be thinking of them both

He owns a dangerous dog....
Please do not shift the responsibility back to rescue....
Euthanize the dog...
There is no rehabbing a dog that will bite to the bone....and if the dog goes back and they rehome him and he kills or maims someone else - he will have that on his heart forever.
The best that a rescue can offer is a life of social isolation....and I truly believe that there are fates worse then a painless death.

This has happened to a dear friend within the past year...the got a dog from a rescue with a history of 'nipping' - This was a giant breed that proceeded to launch himself at an adult guest that entered their home...biting through her clothing and sending her to the Emergency Room. It tore their family apart the attack happened in front of one of their children...but ultimately the mom in the family stepped up to the plate and euthanized the dog.

Sometimes owning a real live animal that has the ability to inflict so much harm carries enormous responsibility and that responsibility can cause great heartache.

I pray for your sons healing...hand injuries are so scary and I can only imagine how terrifying for an artist.

My thoughts go out to you and yours. Not exactly the same situation but one of my Goldens attacked the other this week and required stitches. Hugs, prayers and healing vibes going out to everyone involved.

Oh no! What a devastating thing to happen! I don't know what's worse, your beloved best friend turning on you, or your hand being so mangled you can't do what you love or make a living!I can't think of anything worse than this real life nightmare!

Thank you so much for your thoughts & prayers for our son & our family. In the end, it is their decision to make. Moses isn't going back to the rescue. They're not going to pass him off to somebody else the way he was passed off to them.

So very sorry. I've had to do this once in my history with dogs. It was a 90 lb yellow lab that we raised from a puppy. No amount of socializing, exercising, training, etc helped. He was 4 years old when we had to make the hard decision. We put out heart and soul into that boy, it he just had a wire loose.

It is absolutely the responsible thing to do.

I too agree with LibertyMe. This type of behavior in such a large animal is a loaded gun. Putting the dog to sleep is the kindest thing to do. I hope your son recovers fully.
