we got a dog from the humane society, and the dog was under our bed, and when my wife went to reach for him, he lunged out and tried to bite her in the face. He was a 3 month old shepherd mix. The very next day, we were sitting in the floor watching tv, and my son was sitting there quietly, not roughhousing with the dog, not even touching him, and the dog lunged and tried to bite my son in the face. We took the dog back to the humane society, and they said that they would put the dog through training, and try to find another home for him. When the lady came to get the dog, and pet it, it tried to bite her. They said they must've missed that in his evalutation. We didn't want the puppy to be put down, and were worried this would happen. When we called the next day to make sure, they had adopted him out AGAIN to some other unsuspecting soul, hopefully not with children, because that dog is going to hurt a child or kill them. And the humane society is more worried about turnaround, and getting all animals homes, apparently no matter how dangerous or aggressive they are. I'm REALLY REALLY disappointed with them, and I've been a supporter of the humane society for a long time.
