Well, today for the first time, Starbell actually bit one of our goats. She has chased them in the past when she got loose, but I always managed to catch her before serious harm was done. Today she bit Lola, my favorite goats, neck. Lola will recover, but I think Starbell would have killed her had I not been there. Now, we live in the country and we have livestock, our neighbors have livestock, etc. I love Starbell with all my heart, but the problem is no one else does. My parents say if she ever actually and truely harms one of our goats, my horse, our neighbors cows, etc. she will have to go. Which can't happen!! I adopted her from our local animal services two months ago. I have been doing LOTS of training with her, thinking that if I trained her to obey, everything would be OK, because she would listen to me, and not chase the goats if I was around. Doesn't work. She goes psyco predator around all other animals except dogs, which she is fine with. I am really desperate on how to get her not to attack other animals. We can build a dog proof pen for our animals, but we can't tell our neighbors to(and Starbell goes for whatever she sees). Starbell is a Catahoula/Pit Bull mix, not the greatest combination around other animals I know. But I can't find her another home when I love her so much already! I know there's no "magic" training techniues, but isn't there something I could do, or some sort of training I can start that would teach her not to attack livestock? I wanted to do agility with her in our 4-H club too, but if she is forever after the cows and chickens at the show grounds, that is a big no-no to. I'm sorry, I know I'm not making much sense, I am just feeling really desperate, since there is nothing I can really do if my parents don't agree(I'm only 15) Also, we are very limited on money right now, so we can't pay to have a professional training work with her... Does anyone have suggestions for what I can do?
