I have had 15 dogs, 7 horses, numerous cats, birds, and a salt water fish tank for 15 years - but I am ready to euthanize our latest addition. She is a 3 year old Shih Tzu that we've had since birth. She barks uncontrollably, runs, attacks other dogs and has taken to urinating and defecating on the beds. It is purely a behavioral thing with her, and she is our first ever animal to own a crate, shock and bark collar. We've even had to phone poison control. She has the most endearing personality but is very sneaky and steals stuff on a constant basis. We have a very difficult time catching her doing something wrong , but her demeanor tells you that she has the minute we walk in the door. She is truly exasperating !! and I am ready to get rid of her. A very first for me as I have tons of patience and trained numerous animals. All have been well mannered and obedient.

Have you considered surrendering her to a rescue organization or animal shelter? I would exhaust all alternative options before considering euthanasia and then I would defer to the discretion of a veterinarian.
