Default sad, but are looking to rehome

We are looking to rehome our labradoodle, Charlie. He is a dedicated dog to my DH and our immediate family and this decision is a very difficult one for us. We have worked with a trainer for some time to help Charlie overcome his fear/timidness/agression, but he has recently bitten a child who rode thier bike in our back yard (I was with him and he was on the e-collar, however the child surprised both of us and unfortunatly, Charlie responded negatively). Unfortunatly, this is not the first incident (although the situation was different the other time). We have a three year old and are expecting another child in a few weeks. He's been great with our daughter thus far. However, he's not friendly toward other children. He would be a great dog for a person/couple who doesn't have children and has time to dedicate to continue the training and space for Charlie to get plenty of excersice. He's great on a leash and enjoys playing games. We would be happy to talk more with anyone who is interested and/or could help us out with this process. We've already contacted the idog rescue website. We want what's best for him so that he may live a long, happy doggie life.

Jenny, sometimes these tough decisions work out to be the best ones.
I respect your desire to make this a good transition for Charlie. The right home is out there...I hope they find you and Charlie very soon.
Best wishes.

You have to do what you have to do especially when biting comes in to play.
I'm so sorry.....keep us posted.

This has been a long process for us unfortunatly. We have tried a variety of things, spent lots of money, time and energy on our dog and as I said before, love him dearly. But, in the end, we feel like he'd be better suited with a person/couple that does not have children and can continue to dedicate time and energy into his training. He is so loyal and loving to us and a few other people, but that is it. We are located in Maryland, north of Baltimore.
