Hello everyone. I apologize for making my very first post and visit a problem but I am searching for any resource that might help my situation. I have a Roosevelt Terrier. I won't go into the details but basically my husband and I became the dog's fourth owner. We have had her for 2 years, the dog is 5 years old. I know where she came from and the breeder but that is of no help at all. She came to us because it was the end of the line, there was no one else. My husband ended up moving to Virgina to work and I moved back in with my family until he is able to find a home for us and all of our animals. That leaves me and all of our animals in a home with my parents and all of theirs. My entire family and myself have always taken in rescues so there are a lot of animals in this household. Mostly cats but also the Terrier, Precious ( I did not name her) and another older dog dropped off at the post office a few years ago. All of the animals are fine with each other and perfectly content except Precious. It has been 7 months now and she is hurting the cats. Despite everything I've tried the behavior is escalating and she is causing serious injuries. I can't allow that. I love the dog and she loves me but I can't tolerate her injuring my other animals. I researched the breed and found that they are a very high energy dog with a strong prey drive. I'm sure this dog's behaviors are due in part to the breed and partly because she spent most of her first three years of life in a crate. She has not been in a crate since she has lived with my husband and I. Not even once. I think it was absolutely abuse and cruelty when her previous owners kept her locked up constantly so they did not have to deal with her. She even had to sleep all night alone in that crate in a separate room from any of her people. She sleeps burrowed into the covers right beside me at night and is extremely attached to me. I don't think I have any choice except getting rid of her but I don't want to do it. I know she needs a lot of exercise so I make sure she gets it. She gets to run through a huge alfalfa feed every day in additon to her walks. I don't know what to do to stop her from hurting the cats. I have also had no luck at all trying to find another home for her. The no-kill waits lists are months in the future and I think they are just saying the dog is on a list and I'll never hear back. Any advice on this situation would be greatly appreciated.
