    Logic doesn't enter into the equation where pets are concerned. Most people wouldn't assume they'd have to get rid of their pets unless BC had said something as a condition of moving in. And I'd kinda hope most people wouldn't see getting rid of a pet like they'd see getting rid of a sofa that BC didn't have room for.

    We are negotiating with the dog. I just basically don't want to deal with it, and whenever they leave they HAVE to tie him up and leave food for him.

    When they are around he doesn't destroy things... and when they leave they will have it so all I have to do is untangle him and refill his water and such.

    It just grates on my nerves the noises he makes... but the place he's tied up at is farther away from my room than the other place, so with headphones I don't hear him.

    It's going to work out. I think that I just needed to vent.

    As helpful and patient as you have been with your friends, I don't think it would be too much to ask them to place the dog in the care of someone else, just temporararily, until they have their own place and can take the dog back. Do you know anyone who could take the dog in for awhile? Friendships are eventually ruined over things like this all the time. You may be coping right now, but if you're not careful, the stress will build up into resentment towards your friends eventually. If you absolutely can't tolerate the dog, and you value these friendships, then separate accomodations must be made for the dog. Sounds like you're doing for them all a friend could reasonably ask for anyway.

    Tell the friends they have to move out because you can't stand their dog. Then let them be the ones to come up with the idea to get rid of the dog.

    PS. craigslist may be helpful to get rid of the dog. Include a similar story (but not making the dog look so bad) where a do-gooder will feel they are keeping two young men off the street if they "simply" take in a dog.

    I love dogs, but improperly trained ones can CERTAINLY be a hassle. My neighbor's dog (Who used to be very sweet), just randomly bit me one time. It hurt, kinda like a burn. I knew he didn't have rabies (I'm alive today as proof), but I did know that he wasn't very well trained. I have avoided him since.

    I'd say my dog is a little untrained, but not bad at all. She just gets a little excited when somebody comes to the door, and has a tendency to bark at small mammals. Otherwise she's a perfectly good dog.

    Here are your options:
    1. Tell them to drop their dog somewhere else.
    You and this dog obviously don't get along, and it certainly is pissing you off. I reccommend telling them to dump their dog someplace else (Lazy gits), and refuse further service.
    2. Tell them that until their dog is properly trained, you do not wantthem to drop their dog off with you. The dog obviously has bad behavior, far worse than mine ever did.

    the dog is lonely, it's also teething, give it something to chew on, at least a big stick or something if they don't want to buy it a bone. don't give them chicken bones.

    Obviously, he is just a puppy at this age. He probably is lonely, bored and teething and has not been taught that it's not allowed to bite, that's why he keeps biting you.


    I think you should talk to your friends and ask them to educate their dog. It's not yours, so it's not your obligation to take care of him. It's not that hard to teach the doggy bite inhibition and basic obedience and obviously they should stay more at home, they have a young puppy and for a few months they should commit themselves to it. At this stage, it won't be that hard to correct the unwanted behavior.

    For the destruction in the house and also for potty training, I would suggest crate training. Maybe they'd like to research it a little.

    Anyway, the thing is that you should talk to them and ask them to do something about it. Give them a little more time to solve the situation and try to train the dog before saking them to get rid of it.

    I guess all you can do is work on yourself and change something about how you view it or work on changing the situation in some way. Depends on a lot of variables...

    By using your own logic, I should feed you chocolate.
