Customer Question
We have a friend who...
We have a friend who has a 5 year old Springer Spaniel. Our friend is very gruff with the dog. She has biten her a few times so she has decided the dog has Springer Rage. When we r around this Dog is sweet, and extremely happy to see us. She has never shown any aggression with us.
She reported the last bite so her dog is in quarantine and is scheduled to be euthanized in 6 days. We have 2 very sweet Dobermans and we would take her but we r concerned if she does have rage that she would attack us or our dogs.
How does one know if she truly has rage and can anything be done to save this very sweet, high energy dog?
The owner is 72 and really doesn't like the dog. She & her husband got it and he just died 6 months ago and she was "his" girl.
We r 71 & 60 & have had Dobermans for over 30 years and all our dogs have been sweet.
We feel "Zoe" is happy to see us because we represent love.
Can u help us?

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.
