I think... Well...

Okay, here is the thing, my step dad has been very physical towards my mom, my brother (but very rarely since that is his son), and myself, but he has never hit one of our animals.

I believe that you should keep an eye out for his behavior. If you feel that he is becomeing more aggrassive and angry that you should highly suggest some sort of help.

The thing is he knows he has anger issues but won't try and solve them and I can't fix it for him I've got one month to decide what I'm doing weather to keep the baby or abort and idk what I'm doing yet he feels bad for what he does later and trys to make up for it so it's not like he's entirely bad

Soon567, you would be surprised how many people consider their dogs children. Hey right or wrong is not for you or I to say, and also she did mention his anger problems. This is not coming from an innocent view on his part. So OP, yeah. I would be very worried. And please get rid of the dog if you can't stand to leave the guy. But then be prepared because he might turn to hitting you next.

Yes...that is something to worry about. Animal abuse does fall along the lines of abuse period. It shows that your bf does not have the pat. or time needed in nuturing someone. You don't hit a dog....that is not how you train them and I think it's just crazy. Also, his age can be a factor as well. I feel for your unborn child because, he or she has not idea as to what lies ahead........

What do you mean "hits your dog alot"? Is it a smack for misbehaving or does it go beyond that?? Firstly, if he is abusing that dog then I'd personally want to kick your bf's butt too. I cannot bear the mistreatment of animals. I'd personally report his sorry arse. Only you know the answer to that - if you are writing in here then it must be bad. Where are your guts woman? Why don't you tell your bf to stop hitting the dog if it is inappropriate? Don't let an innocent suffer. Yes, it sounds like anger issues and I personally wouldn't want a kid to be anywhere near him. Seriously though, if that animal is suffering and you don't do anything either, you are just as guilty.
