Default screw loose-mental health question

Stud dog attacked and almost killed his 4 month old daughter. She's going to make it but I'm curious if this trait will now follow the line. Needless to say I'm shocked this occurred.

I would check for physical causes, including a complete thyroid check: Help for Canines With Hypothyroidism - Whole Dog Journal Article

His thyroid is normal. Do I need to check it more then once? He's had lots of genetic testing done. My mom suggested that maybe with the stress I have been under and him being coped up in the back yard may of triggered something. I've talked with do many breeders and just getting confused.

I'm sure that if you are under stress, your dog can sesne it. If he isn't getting enough exercise both mentally and physically he could be bored and starting to get territoral over his yard/food/toys/personal space.

If his current life is out of routine, it will effect him. Things to consider.... how much longer until his life is back to the way it was, are you able to start working with him, walking, running, obedience etc.

If the answer is no, things will not be able to change, then you need to ask yourself if it is in his best interest to be a stud dog, and do you want to risk him hurting another animal within the household. Could he be a liability to someone if he escaped out of his yard?

I hope things work out for you and your boy

I'm having marital issues and my husband has started to walk/run him daily but he is now confined to the smaller dog run and that is making me feel he isn't going to be happy. I want him to be happy. We were not here when this happened and so we were shocked to find the pup bleeding and puncture wounds around her next. So we don't know what triggered it. He does tend to hoard the toys and the older dogs have learned to avoid him. This pup can he annoying and tends to get on the other dogs nerves. She has a lot of energy which is hard for us to burn off. We take her to the green back and run and run and were exhausted but she is still going and going. A lot of people have passed her up due to her energy level.

I'm sorry to hear of your situation, I am sure you are doing your very best. I guess it was kind of a bad combo with your stud dog and a dog that is full of energy.

I had a doberman many years ago that was so hyper, you could run him all day. I would run 7 miles every night, bike on weekends with him, hike, he was literally exhausting me. He kept me fit! really fit I ended up buying him a treadmill which did seem to help, obedience classes helped tire him out as well. I was so envious of people who had quiet dogs............

I hope things work out for you, your family, and your dogs............
