About Hustle

Adoption Fee: $100
Pit Bull / Boxer
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

This amazing boy is Hustle. He is a pit-boxer and very stocky. My family adopted hustle from a family who wasn't able to give him the time he needed with them working. Hustle has come in our lives and made it amazing. He broke my sister's phobia of dogs and won my mom's heart. When we adopted him, we took on the issue of FOOD AGGRESSION. He will let you feed him, but he won't let you pick it back up. He will lunge if you get to close but that to who he is, is so minor. We simply made adjustments and he learned to trust me and nobody else. We learned to respect him while he's eating and then he's fine. Outside of the food issue there's nothing else wrong with him. He flows with the house and knows how to behave. Hustle is potty trained, and house broken. He doesn't tear up stuff or get into anything. but he will if the trash lid is open. We decided to simply feed him outside to give him the space and privacy he needs. He knows command like sit, speak, and high five. He is the smartest dog I've met. He is like an old man; he loves to sleep all day and cuddle. The reason I'm having to rehome him because he recently got into with my stepdad. He provokes hustle then when hustle retaliates, he's wrong because he's a dog. My stepdad recently got out of jail and he's in the phase of trying to show dominance and Hustle is not handling it well because for the last 5 years we've had him he's been the man of the house. Hustle loves my mom, and he can't bond with her like he used to because he's back. Hustles not the problem my stepdad is and what's happening now is he's trying to say he's a problem and he's aggressive and he's not. He gets physical with him, and hustle simply defends himself. I'm tired of waking up to him barking because he's messing with him. Now they are keeping him in the cage all day when before he came back hustle was never, and I mean never caged. He didn't even have a cage in the house it was in the garage now he stays in the cage. I don't care about the money I love hustle and I need him to get away from my stepdad. I know hustle and he's messing with him. I can't tell my mom anything because she not going to do anything and I'm starting to get pissed off and mad because now he's a problem when we've had him for 5 years and it wasn't a problem. I'm out numbered and it's a lot I'm dealing with because my point is they all are wrong, and he need to try to learn hustle instead of thinking he can return and drop his nuts. I'm in desperate need of finding him someone and somewhere to live his life. Under the conditions I get to come visit him. I don't want to do this, and I hate them for making me because I imagined him being with me till I was forced to let go but not this way.
