    Sure, this is Blue at a little over 3 months, I'll get a current pic when I go home to let him out of his crate at lunch:

    Thank you for the update. I am still worried about my puppy. I thought we did better, but now he returned to getting worse. Sorry, I never replied to your thread, I had my own. He is 4,5 months now, in the midst of his teething process. He started growling at us again, while he is attacking the leash. I was wondering the same thing, should I bring him back to the breeder? Now, he could still find a new home, as he is still cute. But we've decided to stick it through, we don't have any kids yet, and we're willing to take the risk to figure him out for a year or so. Maybe these things will outgrow? We will continue correcting him, stop playing with him, whenever he starts his aggressive play behaviour. I hope, I get to report in a couple of months what a mellow, peaceful dog he became.

    And this is Blue today at four months and a week or so:

    (ignore the plumbing work, I have a 116 year old house that is always under repair)

    I really hope it works out for you, Blue never growled, I think he was always playing he just had no clue how to manage how hard he was biting or when to stop playing. I think just age and maturity did it. Now I need him to stop tearing up my sod and pissing on my dining room rug and we'll be good to go.

    Thanks for the update. That is really good news.

    lumineuse, our Boxer behaved like that for a long time. You have to find what he loves and how to get through to him. He did not behave badly with my husband, just me.

    That's really a good question, he doesn't seem extra ordinarily food driven, doesn't have a favorite toy, doesn't care too much where I am when we're walking in the woods. He likes other dogs, but that has never gotten me any plus points. Getting through to him is definitely a challenge. And everybody warns me, we need to handle this issue right now, or we won't be happy with our dog in a year. No clue what to do, I am trying my best, every day.

    Thanks for the update, they are very much appreciated. Consistency is key with stubborn puppies, and of course training what you want. BTW, he's adorable! That face in the photo of him sitting in the yard, is beyond cute! Sort of looks like he could be saying, "wasn't me!"

    Lumineuse, maybe consult with your Vet, a Dog Trainer, or a Behaviourist?

    Are you trying high value treats? What do you feed him?

    Maybe this will help?
