A horrible thing with a happy ending

First of all I want to thank everyone who commented on my last post. I have the greatest friends in my life. I'm feeling so much more uplifted and happy I got those things off of my chest.

Ok so Friday turned out to be one of the most horrific days of my life!!
It all started when I heard the most awful growling sound coming out of my dog, Tyson in the front room.(the dog we just got not two months ago) I was in my bedroom when I first heard it. I didn't think I heard right because he has NEVER growled. Well I heard it again so I went running down the hallway to see what was wrong. Just before I reached the room the Tyson turned and pinned Maverick by his neck and bit him on his forehead. Maverick screamed so loud it broke my heart. All I can tell that happened after that was that I saw red! I hit the dog so hard that I bruised my fingertips and they are now black and blue. I put him in his kennel and started bawling. I couldn't believe that had just happened. I quickly checked Maverick and to my surprise he was ok. The dog just nicked his head because I made it just in time. It makes me sick to think what would have happened had I been in the shower or something. He now has a few little bruises on his forehead but like I said it could have been much worse.
Well I immediately got on the phone and called the shelter we got him from and tried to tell them through the tears what had happened. The shelter came and picked him up. I told them I didn't want a dog I couldn't trust. It was heart wrenching. Maverick keeps asking where he is. They were buddies. That's why I cant understand what happened. It was so hard on Maverick that last night was the first night ever he wouldn't sleep in his room. He had a bad dream (I think about what happened) and woke up screaming. Not to mention I couldn't sleep either replaying it in my mind.
Anyway I called my mom bawling. I cried for 4 hours straight. I was sad to get rid of the dog, I hate the dog, I love the dog all those things going through my head. My mom had the idea that she wanted to get Maverick a puppy for his birthday. She and I both think that he needs a puppy to grow up with that gets used to him. Maverick's birthday is the 16th so I got online and started looking. WE FOUND ONE. He wont be ready until the first week in June, which I think is great. It gives us time to get over what happened and try to heal alittle. We went and put a payment down on him tonight and I wanted to share the pics. He is adorable. He is our happy ending

Just look at that face, he is so cute you could eat him. He is a min pin/jack Russel mix. I believe he will be great for Maverick and hes small enough to take in the car. I swore I didnt want a puppy and Im anti potty training but I guess I have to get over that. I hope I never have to go through something like that again.

I'm excited for Maverick. Every little boy needs a dog as his best-friend.

You are so brave to get a puppy. It will be so great for your family though to have a new puppy. It just stinks that you had to go through that. A lot of it is the breed though and it may have just been inevitable. At least you caught it when you did.


How scary for you to witness. I too once had a dog, I raised from puppy, turn on me and bite the back of my leg. She had to find a new home also even though it broke my heart.
Your new puppy is very cute and I tend to agree that a puppy growing up with a small child will be more patient.
I have a wonderful yellow lab who joined our family as a pup and the kids were 4 and 2. They climb on her and lay all over her. She lets them. Good luck with the new pup!


I am so sorry that happened! How scary! I probably would have beat the dog to death!!! Well, PUPPY here you come!! Ha Ha!! Just kidding!! He sure is cute!!! We need to plan a day to get together!! LOL

I am so glad your son is ok! I love the new pup! I told my kids they couldn't get a pet until they can take care of it themselves. I am so! Well, have a wonderful Mother's Day Weekend!!
