I think for you to say that Rudolph is barley managble is unfair. His aggression toward other males is an issue that can be managed and Marilyn has made it very clear that he should be in a home with out another male dog. Also the issue of him following you around could have had alot to do with the fact that he was in a strange place with a strange person. Also I have 4 bassets and they all follow me around and stand outside any door that I am in wanting to come in , it is just a bassets nature to want to be with their person. I am sorry that this didn't work out like you wanted but please don't label this dog as unmanagable because he is completely managable with the right person.
