Unfortunately it didn't work out. My neighbor came over to meet him and he bit him un provoked from behind on his thigh. It was a bite and let go but his jeans were ripped and he punctured his thigh pretty good. There was no explanation. He had not met him yet. I was in my garage working on my motorycle with Max on the floor next to me when my neighbor walked in. He's my beer drinking buddy so he is always over. Bo came from around the side of the garage without growling or barking. After the bite he was acting normal and even wanted to play with my neighbor. With my 2 kids, a neighborhood full of them and him biting I couldn't take the risk so his original owner took him back. She is looking for a new home for him.

Really sux because until this happened everything was going great. I feel bad because he seemed so happy with us. Family is sad but it's better now then months down the road. Would have been alot harder. :-(

Oh so sad to hear. I am glad though his original owner took him back.

Oh boy... sounds like he was nervous. They say that there should be no new introductions with rescues until at least 2-3 weeks after they come home to you. They need time to adjust to all the changes... it's unfortunate that you had to take him back.

May I suggest that your next rescue be through an established rescue organization? They can better coach you and provide support so that your next adoption is a successful one.

That's actually the plan for the next one.

Honestly it sounds like the problem was you let the dog have to much freedom to soon.
In the future, if you try again, keep the new dog crated when your not working with him.
There is no reason for him/she to be out have free run of what ever he/she wants.
There needs to be time for him to adjust to your family. The best place for that to happen is from the safety of a crate

You are probably right. I would have been much more cautious but his demeanor was so laid back and happy. Other friends and family came over and he was great. My neighbor came over unannounced and I didn't know he was here till he walked into my garage. If I knew he was coming I would have leashed him first so they could meet in a controlled manner. I only know what I was told and what I saw from him in the few days we had him so I would have never expected it. I've only had boxers for the last 20 years and never had anything like this happem before. Other than the occasional puppy playing bite to the ear (messy) I have never had one that ever bit anyone. Lesson learned (measure twice cut once). Next time I will adopt through our local boxer rescue so I'm better educated by them how the dog reacts in situations. Was just trying to do something nice for a boy that needed a loving home.

Sadly this dog now has a bite history, his chances for now finding a new home are by and large pretty remote!

Making a broad sweeping statement here but by and large most rescue organizations know "ZERO" about rehabbing dogs and provide very little if any in the way of training!

Boxers and Buddies in Virginia City NV is my background for one for that blanket statement!

My GSD from Dog Town rescue is another. Serious unknown undisclosed "Human Aggression issues" with that guy!!!'

"I" could deal many can not! Job one is no one gets hurt! If you get a rescue...you don't know this dog! People are a "no go" until you know the dog!

One on one walks and a "no you can't pet my dog" policy is how I roll.
Leerburg | Who Pets Your Puppy or Dog

That is how you "learn" to read your dog and know what he looks like when he he is not under stress!

If the dog is "lucky" he will find someone like me?? A dog with an "undisclosed" bite history is not a problem for owners like me because the dog will "never" get a chance to display "aggressive" behavior!

Rescues "should" give out info such as this:
I just got a rescued dog – what do I do? | stickydogblog

Sadly most do not, sorry it did not work out!
