UPDATE. Anyone Looking for a Good Yard Dog?
I have a 4.5 year old mutt that we can no longer keep. She needs a fenced in yard, and we no longer have one. We've tried the wireless collar system, but she fights through it to chase the golf carts and four wheelers in our neighborhood. We are afraid she might bite someone, and its mostly children riding around so we cannot chance that anymore.

She has never bitten anyone before, but I'd hate myself if she eventually did.

She is 50lbs, crate and house trained. Her name is Daisy Mae. She fully up to date with her shots, and it breaks my heart to have to get rid of her, but she needs to be somewhere she is either fenced in or out in the country away from people riding around constantly, if she isn't fenced in.


Shes a very sweet dog, and it breaks my heart, but I don't want to send her to a rescue. I want her to go to someone's home. I can provide more pics via email if anyone is interested.
Please help me out, OB.

Update:

Redstick13 is going to be keeping Daisy Mae, at least for now. I think she will enjoy it there. Out in the country, with plenty of room to run around.

She's a good dog, and IMO the perfect size at 50lbs. Our situation has changed majorly over the last 7 months with a new baby and the hurricane destroying our house, and we can no longer keep her, unfortunately.

Timing sucks. Been wanting to put up a fence so I can get a dog. We have plans to build one eventually, but lumber is so damn high right now. I’d totally take her. Hope you can find her a good home. Good luck.

So leave my wife, my 7 month old daughter, and my job so that i can keep my dog?

Look, im not happy about it, but short of dropping 8-10k on a new fence, or keeping her in her kennel all day long, i have no other option. Keeping her locked up wouldnt be fair to her. So while i used to think theres nothing that could make me give up my pup, situations change. If you dont like that, you can kindly frick off.

A trained dog won’t mind the crate during the day.

I trained mine in a crate, then moved to her going to dog bed on command. Now she’ll go wherever I put the bed, so she spends the day in the laundry room.

When I worked from home for a week with covid, she’d see what I was doing for a while and then went on her own to the laundry room to sleep.

“Keeping her locked up” during the day isn’t unfair. It’s a routine, dogs like routines.

Agree to disagree, i guess...

Im not leaving her locked up for ten hours a day. She would be miserable.

Have you considered building a smaller area fence ? My neighbor put a fence where he could open the back door and let his dog out and he could get to the patio to get out of the weather.The fence is about 20'x 40'. Like you he didn't want to drop serious coin on fencing the entire yard because it's a big lot.

Go get a 10' x 10' x 6' at Lowes, Tractor supply, Home Deport for around 300.00. Easy to put together. Tie the fricker up when unsupervised outside.

How much does she roam? I'm on 3 acres in the country but have neighbors around me with dogs who they let roam free. The neighbor to my west has miniature cattle in their field.

Don't sweat it man. At least your trying to do the right thing. We "rescued" our Boykin from a life of living in a dog crate 20 hours a day when his family situation changed (his original "dad" lost his job and got another one out of state).

When I lived in Charlotte ages ago, I once saw someone dump out a dog in Friday afternoon rush hour traffic. The door popped open, out came the dog and the car sped off. It was heartbreaking watching the dog chase after the car as it was speeding away. One of the most POS things I've ever seen in my life. This is not what your doing so don't feel bad. Find the pup a good home where it will be happier than it is with you at the moment. That's the best thing you can do.

I know you say you don’t want a rescue, but honestly-that’s your best route. Find one that send the dogs up north, even better. My girlfriend and her best friend both foster through a rescue, and those dogs live a better life than I do. They will foster locally, and then when adopted arrange transport to get them there.

She doesn't roam far, she only chases the golf carts or four wheelers about 100 yards or so. 3 acres is more area than she's ever had to run around. She likes to be around the house so she can get attention from us anytime we are outside.

I can throw in her electronic wireless collar system which keeps her close, until someone comes around on a four wheeler. Which it will bring her back, but not after she gives chase a little ways...
