sorry brother.  I have 2 females and they are great with my 4 kids.

Hope you find a home and thank you for being upfront with people.  Had a friend give me his male GSD back last year, he did not let me know that there were problems with adult males, crazy dog bit mt 5 times before we put him down.

They are the best breed, IMHO!

Thank you, sir.  Hopefully, it works out with you.  Sounds like a good dog just not with kids, and that’s ok.  Unfortunately, rescues and shelters are full, tons of beautiful shepherds dying in shelters and with this issue, likely none would make room and take the liability.

As much as I hate to say it, this.  OP, he needs to go.


It still breaks my heart, but I've been there with our 5 year old 200 lb. Mastiff.  

This doofus.  We suspected he was mildly retarded.



He snapped and bit me, then we had a knock down drag out.  I don't recommend fighting a 200 lb. dog.

I've had GSDs almost my entire adult life, and I'm pushing 60.

Were you totally drunk or smoking crack when you got him?  They are overly protective and VERY family oriented.
My latest girl was 'mothered' by a West Highland Terrier.  Taught her to be a fighter.  It takes lots of time and attention to train a stubborn dog.

Attention. Attention. Attention.

Im still in the maybe category depending on when the move would happen. I honestly have no idea how those get coordinated here on arf.

Since i just sold my house I'm in the process of moving with any free time i have between work so this would be a burden on me but I'm still willing to do some transport if schedules line up.

I'm really sorry that OP has to deal with this issue.  The potential liability of a large dog who hates kids would make that dog unacceptable to most people...even people who don't have kids would forever have to worry that the dog might bite a kid that just happened to get near him.  

During the dog's life time, the odds that a kid will have contact with the dog is very high.  Whoever is considering taking on the dog would be wise to speak with a civil liability attorney first.    Having prior knowledge of the dog's aggression toward kids (by something like the posting in this thread) really skyrockets the potential liability.

I really love dogs, but I would be worried about loosing everything I have worked for during my lifetime in a civil lawsuit because I took in a dog that I knew was aggressive toward children, and that dog attacked and harmed (or killed) a child.

I know you are hurting from having to let him go but DO NOT kill him.

Find a foster.

GSDs are highly desired by people in this forum.

Don't kill him.


Looks like you may have a good resolution.   Please update the title and current status at the TOP OF THE FIRST POST.

Don't pass the problem to someone else. Who's to say he wouldn't end up in a new home with kids if you drop him off at a shelter.

BLKVooDoo and Fluffy- IM sent.

I appreciate the well wishes and kind words and I even appreciate some of the criticism. Ill try to respond to some of the questions tomorrow when I can. My right hand barely works at the moment and it hurts like hell to type.

I can’t thank everyone enough for stepping in. I can pay for the gas for anyone willing to drive. I’ll be happy to get him into Pennsylvania if someone is willing to take him from there.

Zeke is anxious in cars and will likely whine the whole time, just as a heads up. We could go ice fishing for 12 hours and he still wont sleep on a two hour ride home.


Someone asked about a kill date and I just want to clear it up. Its a very good and valid question. This event this morning took place 15 minutes before my brother and sister in law were due to arrive from TX with their two young kids. When I got home from the doctors I had to put on a happy face all day for the kids and entertain, and pretend I was not distraught by the events of the morning and what the future was for my companion.

When I got 5 minutes this afternoon, literally just before my OP, I called our vet to talk about euthanasia. It turns out in CT law, if the euthanasia is prompted by an attack the dog either needs to be tested for rabies, or needs to be “quarantined” for 14 days prior to euthanasia. Testing for rabies requires brain matter apparently, so if I wanted Zeke put down anytime before the 14 days it meant afterwards they would basically literally cut his head off and ship it to Boston for testing. Now at the time I was barely holding it together for the conversation in the first place, but when I heard that it did not seem like a dignified option, so the date was scheduled for 14 days later. His last vet appointment would be 8/25 at 8am.

The little Buddhist part of me thought that might be the universe sending me some kind of sign, so I asked a group of people Im rather fond of if anyone thought they might have what my friend here needs.

Zeke does not hate kids in the sense that when he see’s one he seeks it out to kill it. Zeke is around kids all the time, not even just my own.

Zeke is pretty much the epitome of the saying “Let sleeping dogs lie”. He loves the people in his pack, he wants to be in the same room as them. When you sit on the couch he wants to lay on your feet. He just doesn’t want you to acknowledge he’s there when he’s laying down.

He doesn’t care about kids until they acknowledge him. He becomes visibly uncomfortable. Its not even all the time as you can tell from the pics I posted. Its really mostly just when he’s laying down. We’ve gone as far as to train him to get up and exit the room when it happens. We were very careful not to train the growling out of him (like cutting the tail off a rattlesnake).

I thought someone saying they had a kill date already arranged before they tried to find it a new home was dumb. But trying to tell a future potential new dog owner to consult a lawyer first just took the crown. It sounds like someone who knows what he is doing will take the dog. He doesn’t need to talk to a lawyer first. He is an adult that makes his own decisions

I hate to be wishy washy and noncommittal, but depending on the day/time and the end location in MN, I can possibly get the dog the distance of I90/I94 though WI from Beloit, or maybe Rockford, IL as far as Hudson, WI or Woodbury, MN.

OP, have you figured out if your dog is aggressive with all kids?  Or is your dog maybe only aggressive with your kids?  It wouldn't surprise me at all if it's the latter, and if so, that might help with the rehoming?

I have a GSD that's spectacular with kids.  But he does kinda hate other male dogs.

As a fellow minnesotan local to BLKvoodoo, i can offer the following....

I will gift unlimited Delta Miles to anyone who needs transport to a point along the route to bring the dog home.

I will gift unlimited Delta miles for anyone to fly to the dog to facilitate air transport to MSP airport.

I will work out a cost sharing arrangement to cover Delta Pet Priority costs for carriage. Airfare for his escort is covered.


BLK voodoo, make the arrangements and you will have the dog by Monday.

That's not what worried me . I didn't like the fact that it took a bite of the OP's hand . The guy who raised him for 6 years. That's not a pup or a 8month old dog doing that it's an adult dog who he spent 1000's of hours training and spending time with .
