Family wants to put dog to sleep?

Nyx Asked: Family wants to put dog to sleep?

Our dog is 10-11 years of age. He has been hit by a car at 7-8 months of age(perhaps potentially ruined his brain function).
The last year has been difficult, he would go on chewing, tearing sprees. He ate the doors, broke the mirrors, chewed clothes, shoes, you name it. He even ate up the couch he slept one. That last episode was 6 months ago. He stopped since then. We treat him well, love him, play with him, no abuse etc.
We bought a new couch 2-3 months ago. Today he chewed it up also, out of the blue, and took out a lot of clothing from the closets. Also, the last month he has been taking a dump at least once a day in the house. He is well trained to hold off, and he is trained to ask to go outside. This whole month, he has stopped whining to go outside, and takes a dump , and does not feel ashamed of it like he used to be. He doesn't even realize we are upset with him anymore, you raise your voice at him, he does not give a damn. It's as if he has some mental disorder…

I want to know what is happening, or what I can do before my family decide to put him to sleep.

What is the population in this question?

Katherine Pukas Asked: What is the population in this question?

Is insomnia related to education status? Adults living in Tennessee were selected to participate in the study which used random-digit telephone dialing procedure. Two of the many variables measured for each of the two 575 study participant s were years of edu…etc.

It's a multiple choice and I thought the population was 'all adults' but my friend thinks it's 'all adults living in Tennessee'. The question doesn't ask if insomnia is related to education status of adults in Tennessee so I'm confused. Isn't the whole point to make an inference about the general population based on the sample of 575 adults from Tennessee?
