Picture the sweetest little puppy, with a shrivelled cute wrinkly face and humongous paws, a Viszla called Coolio. He was born in August 2015 and welcomed into the family circle. It wasn’t very long before a very sad discovery was made by the vet.
Coolio became part of the family, and it’s fair to say there weren’t many places that we wouldn’t take him.
That very first week they had to take him to a holistic vet based in Sydney, they thought he could have hip dysplasia and a heart murmur, which could go by itself, hopefully!
Coolio was the perfect dog, an amazing companion and the trust between him and the family was golden.
He started, without any warning, to become aggressive and bossy and would not let us on the couch, the bed, and feed time was becoming dangerous.
He would bark, growl and Lunge at the family!
The couple didn’t really want to acknowledge the problem and hoped it would just go away.
Coolio, one evening in the kitchen, jumped up to the counter and got a spoon when he dropped it Blake went to see what was going on. The only thing you could hear next was one almighty scream.
Blake when to the bedroom, shut the door, and sat stunned trying to understand why Coolio had bitten him!
Luckily for Blake, he had been wearing a sturdy jacket, without the padding of that jacket, he would have been on the way to the emergency room!
There were several more incidents where Coolio had snapped at the couple, and very nearly caused great harm. He even dove aggressively at grandpa to bite him without any reason at all.
The couple shocked themselves at how long they allowed it to continue, burying their heads in the sand the problem was definitely not going away!
