Pet’s Name: Skylla
This is a very hard thing to do but after lots of time and prayers we have decided we need to rehome our half bulldog/half pit of 10 years, Skylla.
She is a great dog. Still full of puppy energy. But she needs to go to a loving home to finish off her final years free of small children and potentially other animals. I have 3 children, two of which are under 2.5 (one still breastfeeding) and she is not a fan of them. We also have another male dog that is great with the children but has gotten aggressive with Skylla and has bit her many times. I know it will only get worse the older she gets and I would feel awful if he ever did anything to her.
With her old age, come bad joints and potential arthritis. Which I believe is adding to her irritability with the toddler. Especially when she gets close. I have stairs for her to get into bed because she has trouble getting up onto high places.
To add to this constant stress of something bad possibly happening, my husband just got stationed overseas for 1-2 years. So it has been difficult and hard.
She is spayed. Not up to date on her shots but I can take her if needed. We only bring her to a walk in clinic if she is sick or injured. Unfortunately, Not by choice but this is how my husband does it and they were his before I met him.
She does not do great on a leash(pulls) but loves going outside and chasing balls and basking in the sun. She sleeps with us and we also let her on the couch. She loves to cuddle.
