(That breeder is not a "free range" breeder. I have one of Touchdown Guy's sons). If you would be so kind as to look at the thread: Bringing Home Lexy ( post # 7)

The breeder was not named in this thread. Only who would have bred one of the parents.

In southeast U.S. it means livestock allowed free to range over pastures/grazeing area. As opposed to restricted or confined.

Its taken from the term of cattle, that were not fenced in. But moved/herded out on the open plains to graze.
Its just basically a dog that gets to run loose outside. Some people own enough land, and their dogs get to.

I am so sorry this happened Suzanne.

I'll say what everyone else won't, and it pains me to do so, but here goes: You need to find Oli a new home. This was a serious attack, and your first priority is to your human son. If it was "resource guarding" or not, it's aggression, and that's always hard to resolve. And while you're making this attempt, consider how life would look, with you always being on guard yourself and worried, and kiddo confronted with the object of his trauma.

I am really sorry, but some dogs don't like small kids, and when stuff like this happens, it's usually best to find them anew home ASAP.

OLIVER UPDATE: No reply from the breeder yet (sigh). As for the free range concern, the breeder only lets his older dogs roam his farm property. The litter was kept indoors in a gated off area. I researched Lyme Disease and there are several other symptoms that we will watch for.

Maybe Oliver’s brain isn’t wired right, but that doesn’t fit his pattern of behavior. He is bullied by Chloe every day over toys and treats and he always cowers to her. He has NEVER shown aggressive behavior before.

I am very strict with both Oliver and Chloe (ages 9 months and 3 years old). Oliver is sometimes in a “goofy puppy” stage and doesn’t always listen. I am stern with him and give him a “time out” when needed. Oliver has been more responsive and eager to please since we started obedience class.

I truly appreciate the suggestions made by everyone, especially LINCOLN VIZSLA. We are cautiously optimistic and have discussed doing all of those steps she suggested. I read an incredibly heart breaking post on this forum titled “Our Beloved Lincoln” that made me realize that we need to give Oliver one more chance. Our kids are 19 and 22 years old. We all agreed that we need to set stricker rules with Oliver, especially regarding sofa privileges.

I plan on talking privately to the obedience teacher tonight after class for advice. Our outlook is “hope for best, but prepare for the worst.”
