I'm a little troubled about what to do with my mother's german shepard/husky mix. He's a year and a half old. We live in a small house and this big dog is cooped up in the kitchen for 14-16 hours minimum a day. He barely gets walked because no one has time. You can tell he's depressed by the look on his face when you walk in the door. There's one more problem: he's been biting. Hes bitten my mother, myself and my little brother. When you take something away that he's chewing on that he isn't supposed to be (ex: the phone). Not too hard, until two days ago when my brother took something away from him and the dog attacked him. He bit him several times, fairly deep (my brother is only 11 years old). I want my mom to give up the dog to someone who has more time, and a bigger house. He's extremely unhappy, and now vicious. My mother has him sedated for a couple of months and says that the trainers have told her he can change if she gets him trained. She *says* that she will start walking him everyday (but she barely has time) and that she will be moving "soon." What's your opinion?
