Ok this is a show I watch alot of (I like the fact that they rescue pets) but last night I watched them call a boxer (abandoned by his family and left tied in the back yard) a dangerous dog and put him to sleep all because he was protective of his food. The lady put that fake hand out and he started to growl and then bark and then bite the third time, they could have easily found him a home with adults who would know this and deal with this but I'm mad that they just said "oh he's dangerous" meanwhile he took all his medicine fine he gave kisses and the only problem was the food and he'd been starving. If I hadn't eaten in 2 weeks and somebody tried to take my food I'd warn you to back off too.

A dog like that is hard to adopt. Why run the risk that food agression could turn into other kids of aggression? What if a child passing the dog in a backyard offers a treat through the fence? What if the dog attacks someone with food while on a walk? Food agression is a very serious problem. I have been bitten at least five times (once on my face, I still have scars) because of DIFFERENT food agressive dogs. I wasn't trying to take the food from them either. The bite on my face was from my dad's first daschund, because I tried to get him out of the trash can.

That's what i'm saying though if you have proper owners for him it would be ok and the problem wasn't giving him food it was trying to touch his face, so it could have been dealt with but they didn't even give him a chance, he was a very good dog with everything else and like I said if he was starving then that's why he's aggressive if he knows he's going to be fed then he probably would've been better. I think they just jumped the gun on that one.
