Shes also starting to get mouthy/nippy towards me on the lead. Iv spoken to my local vet and and having her euthanized is being discussed. Any advice would be appreciated, iv only been doing rescue for the last six months and have always had a good outcome. This ones just a bit disheartening. Thanks for your time
Hi Emma, well done for rescuing this obviously needy dog. I've been doing rescue for years, and believe me you will never reach a point where you think you have done enough - there is always another out there.
I'm always the one who would 'Give the dog another chance' so in your situation I'd be thinking let's give her more time to settle in. If it doesn't work out, then hey, euthanasia may be the answer if you can't find another home for her, but don't go down that route too soon, you may find she will settle better than you think, given time.
Don't be disheartened - if it doesn't work out at least you tried.
And don't ever give up on the dog rescue, they need people like us
