    I've had a few Chesapeakes. Wonderful, smart, and very loyal dogs. Does this one have papers?

    Is he fixed? Iím guessing not, but that might solve some of those aggression problems.

    If I wasn't so far away I'd like to take him and work with him on that aggression. My shorthair Roy is 75-80 lbs and is overprotective of me and has had aggression towards other dogs . In his case he got chewed up pretty good by a large male black lab when he was 3 months old. The lab came into our yard and Roy was on his trolley. Had I not been close by in the garage Roy would have died. 3 months later and the same black lab did it again. I had laid in wait for that lab but figured he was gone as only seen him twice at that point and both times when he worked Roy over real good. That kind of crap will really stir up aggression in a dog. I had worked with Roy real hard getting him socialized to many other dogs and he had just about cleared all of the hurdles. He even hunted with another black lab this fall and they got along fine. Then it happened. Roy was in the house and I opened the back door and told him to kennel and he did. However because I had left the kennel door open that black lab was in his kennel eating his food and since Roy is no longer a puppy and very seasoned with the likes of racoons and coyotes that lab got his ***** handed to him. Roy had him by the throat when I pulled him off. The lab left a nasty blood trail for 3 blocks down the street and right up the drive to his owners house. That incident might have set us back quite a bit on dealing with Roy's tolerance of other male dogs....that remains to be seen. The owner heard about it in real simple terms. You want to keep that lab alive then keep him home cuz next time he won't come home.

    Now I'm back to the drawing board with the aggression thing. We start tonight with a return trip to a kennel full of male dogs that Roy was getting along with fine prior to the labs return. They are darned pack animal like any canine and will defend their territory and their alpha male (ME) to the Nth degree. That pecking order/defense instinct can be curtailed but it isn't easy. Hopefully Roy getting a mouth full of labrador blood won't trigger more aggression. I'll find out soon enough. I sure do love my dog and if it means that I have to put in a 6 ft chain link fence all the way around my property and I have to hunt with him alone then that's what is going to happen. I sure hope it doesn't come to that.

    I told the labs owner that I had vet bills from his dogs 1st two encounters in my backyard and witnesses to both incidents. I told him 3 strikes are all you are getting...if the lab ever comes into my yard again there will be a boom flop........................and I WILL do it. Roy does not leave our yard period and I will put a stop to that labs bringing the fight to us BS.

    My 75# Golden Pyrenees got pounced by a black dog when she was a puppy. Guess who she doesn't like now. She isn't very tolerant of black dogs no matter the size. She also gets fed up with over exuberant young dogs and will put them in their place without doing any damage. Lots of noise and slobber but no blood.

    I was given a dead grass female chessie years ago. She had been tied to a dog house all her young life. Never had a dog so quiet and meek. I turned her loose after a few days hoping she would stick around. She did. It took a while, but she really turned into a great watch dog. Never barked at nonsense. If she barked, I went to see what she was barking at. Got a call from my neighbor once. He said, "I really like your dig, Missy." I asked why, and he said that she kept the B.S. in the neighborhood to a minimum. She really did. You weren't going to siphon any gas with her around.
    In my youth I had a dog that was 1/2 Golden, 1/4 GSD, and 1/4 Coyote. Full grown he was 55#. I took him everywhere including my logging job. His name was Dance. He was a scrapper. Fast. Also very protective of me and the family. I miss him.

    Was wondering why you have to let him go.....maybe because you're gonna have a kid pretty soon? I'm sure I'd love to have him as I've had my eye's/ears out for another hunting dog. But I still have a, going on 14 year old male yellow lab that is still hangin' in there. Would hate for him to have to deal with a mean dog (towards him) for whatever time he has left.

    Iíve had 2 of them. They were bred to work hard and protect the pile of market hunted waterfowl they collected that day. Thatís just what they do. The pile of birds they were bred to guard can mean just about anything. In our case of the last one it was our first son. A few years later when the second son came she protected the first one from the second as well as the rest of us. She bit the baby and turned on me one day and got a trip to the woods. Hated to do it, great dog just unable to adapt to the new situation.

    Excellent animal in the right situation. Nothing more loyal or hard working. Hope you find the right home for him.

    Thank you. I have put a ton of trainkng into this dog. He is great with me. Follows me everywhere but he will not let anyone around me. Will not let anyone into my truck and im the only one who can feed him. Very protective and possessive of one person only. He has never bit anyone one but can take that chance with the grandkids.
