    BBPITS, we discussed intensively the requirements and traits of the breed. He just decided that since she's nice to people all of it is bull and she can be trained out of it. My housing situation is hectic thanks to this but isn't going to change any time soon, as in spite of the annoyance I'm not going to let my folks lose their house so I can be 'free'. There are more factors involved, and I'm not keen on discussing them with strangers, suffice it to say aside from this current issue it's been stable for years.

    She's going back to the shelter and I hope will find a better home. It's the best I can do. I'll have her til Friday, and he hasn't tried to undo the padlock yet on the new kennel, so hopefully things will stay peaceful for this last week.

    Does he know you are taking the dog back due to his lack of cooperation?

    Yes. He's tried to argue for keeping her but he has no say in it, she's registered under my name, and I informed the shelter of what's going on; he won't be able to adopt her right back. They agree she needs a no-kitty house. Even now he's refusing to believe there's a problem. Nan, who owns the house, is on my side at least. She said if he wants to treat a breed as if everything can be trained to get a retriever, not a pit bull.

    That really sucks for you and the dog. You are an incredibly responsible person, so kudos for that. It's a shame your dad doesn't understand.

    Here's a shot in the dark!. have your dad look at this thread,and see the advice and comments you received from other breed owners,it MIGHT sink in.If you decide to do it,maybe have a mod.remove the last line of your first post lol.. Good luck!

    His father threw out a brand new crate, I don't know how reasonable he is to a bunch of words on the monitor screen.

    To OP, is there any chance to reason with him with out him (your father) going back on his words?

    I'm sure he is at the age where change isn't an option, as people age they become more stubborn and are very set in their ways....

    Agreed,the reason being I'm probably just as old if not older than the Dad,the secret is you never become "unteachable",if and when you do you become a closed minded dinosaur.I know a few of those. :grin:

    Yeah he's... always been closed-minded and willfully ignorant about things once he decides something, even if there was another decision earlier. You get used to it. He's not all bad, and I've probably given that impression. When anything goes seriously wrong he's always there to help, immediately and fully. ... Just not so much on the prevention of things going wrong. On the bright side, apparently someone's already interested in seeing Bonnie. No cat house, just one boy dog.
