    We need to find a home for our dog Rosco. He is a 3 year old male boxer, we have all his papers for registration, vet, microchip etc. He has been fixed.

    The bad news...if you've read any of my former posts, Rosco was hit by a car several weeks ago. Physically you can't tell by looking at him that he has been hit by a car. He's still just as beautiful as ever.

    There have been some behavioral problems though that we can't deal with right now. My daughter and her husband have been recently discharged from the army and are staying with us until they get their own house. They have 3 children...2 girls that are 3 and a boy that is 2. We still have 2 children at home as well so there are 9 people in our house so needless to say it's very hectic.

    Twice now since the accident Rosco has snapped at the kids. Both times I was there and the children were not doing anything wrong or threatening at all. He hasn't bit but I'm worried. The other issue is the peeing in the house. About once a week he gets up on the couch and pees and then a day or so later will pee or poop on the floor.

    He knows it's wrong....when we find it he slinks to the door.

    Anyway....my husband is angry, and we have decided that we need to find him a new home. Rather than posting on Craigslist or something or taking him to the shelter we hoped we could find someone on here that has more experience than we do and would be willing to give him a home.

    Sad..... Have you ever followed up with a specialist to see what is wrong with him? The behavior does seem to be related to the accident/injury! He might know that it is "wrong" to pee on the floor, however he probabaly doesn't do it on purpose. Please don't be mad at him.
    If I were you I would contact a boxer rescue asap. Definitely do not let him interact with the children unsupervised. Obviously you don't want anything to happen but a dog that has snapped at or bitten a child is much harder or even impossible to place into a new home.
    I googled 'nebraska boxer rescue' and the second entry that came up had a phone number to call for owner surrenders. I'm sure they will be able to Let you know how to proceed from here.
