Brand new to the forum. I know I can probably search and find similar stories but here goes. In 2016 we adopted a 6 month old rescue dog that was born in Afghanistan. The mom was found wandering the streets by some US soldiers and was pregnant. She gave birth to our current dog plus 6 others. They were all then shipped to the states for adoption. We thought we were doing a wonderful thing. We're not 100% sure what breed she is but she looks like a smaller golden retriever and we did hear she is part Afghan Kucci. She's only about 40 lbs. but strong and fast as hell. We have two boys ages 12 and 8 and she absolutely adores them; plays well, sleeps on their bed with them, cuddles to the point where she falls asleep and snores in their laps etc. She loves my wife and I as well. Other people? Forget it. Especially children. She has bitten our neighbor, our neighbor's 8 year old son, my father-in-law, a contractor working at our house and most recently me for the first time. She bit me while I was using a shovel digging up a bush in the back yard almost like she felt I was being violent to the bush. We had her stay at a kennel last summer while we went on a cruise only to pick her up and find out that another dog's tail had poked through her side of the crate she was staying in and she bit the dog's tail so bad it had to be amputated. We've spent thousands of dollars on multiple trainers and techniques and she seems to be getting worse. Our anxiety as you can imagine is also getting worse as we worry about lawsuits etc. We had a chocolate lab prior to this dog who was a saint and I have had a dog since I was a little kid so we're not new to dogs. My wife and I feel like complete and utter failures for what we feel is failing this dog we have now. The dog literally can't leave the house for walks or any kind of socialization because she can't be trusted. We crate her when we have people over because she can't be trusted. We reached out to the rescue organization to have her re-homed only to have it basically thrown back at us questioning what we have done to help the dog. She's now 4 years old and as I said appears to be getting worse. We have such envy for people who can take their dogs hiking, boating and walking. Any advice?
