Hi, I have a boxer/sharpei mix I rescued who is approx 1 yrs old, Sanders. I am at my wits end on what to do with him, he's a beautiful dog with my hubby & I but no one else. He's good with other dogs but not people. He likes to intimidate & will bark & growl constantly. I try to correct the behavior but everything I do doesn't work. I've tried putting him on a leash with a sit/stay, if I chain him outside he barks non-stop, if I put him in another room he tears it apart, he will even growl at us when making a correction. I have not & will not hit him because thats what made him this way from what I have been told & hitting does not teach anything but fear or anger. My grandsons are deathly afraid of him & so are some friends. Those that do not show him fear after a few minutes he is ok with them. But if anyone shows the smallest sign they are afraid of him he gets all macho & it seems like he really gets into intimidating them. He has NEVER bitten anyone, just growls & barks non-stop. Even when they pet him his tail will wag, the whole time he sounds like he's ready to tear them apart. I am having him neutered next week but worry due to his age & agressive demenor this won't help. I don't want to have him put down but don't want him to really hurt someone if he decides to actually bite. Can someone help me please. Thanks to all who respond.
