Pit Bull Attacks Two German Shepherd Dogs In Unadilla Township
April 17, 2010
4/17/10 - A Pit Bull was seized by Livingston County Animal Control after attacking two German Shepherd dogs. On Thursday at 10:50 a.m., Unadilla Township Police were called out to an East Trebesh Drive home in response to a dog attack. A man reported that his neighbors Pit Bull managed to get out of its fenced-in yard and attacked his two German Shepherds. One received life-threatening injuries to his neck while the second also had serious injuries. Due to the vicious nature of the attack, and the fact that the Pit Bull didnt have a license or its vaccination shots, it was seized by Animal Control. Police are seeking charges against the 19-year-old owner for failing to control a vicious dog, and a report has been submitted to the Livingston County Prosecutor's office for review and possible charges.

One thing I have learned. If I ever have to live near someone who keeps pit bulls, I will certainly purchase a Mossburg and keep it loaded and close to hand.
Open question to all FReepers: Is there a breed of dog that can actually deal with an agressive pit bull attack? I am thinking Irish Wolf Hound or Rhodesian Ridgeback, but they are so huge and expensive to maintain.
Dapple Dachshund and sedate pit.
That's because it isn't true.
Is there a breed of dog that can actually deal with an agressive pit bull attack?
My Wolf/Malamute/Shepherd ate more than one dog- including a pit bull. The pit bull didn't even tear him up that bad. (though a Rot did, as did other Malamute/Huskies).
I should have added that when a dog yawns it means submission. The pit yawns.
Another pit bull...
Dachshunds are either absolutely fearless or incredibly stupid. What other critter goes down a badger hole to face off a badger in its’ own den?
A dachshund once bit me in the ankle, when I was going door-to-door with campaign canvassing. It didn’t hurt, but the owner ticked me off.
And I would support legislation requiring all pit bulls to be killed or sterilized.
And I guess this proves that lions aren’t so aggressive and imposible to control:

His attention turned away from Maya for a second so that he could push my front door open and she followed. At that point I grabbed him in the groin as hard as I could. He doubled over and released the grip around my neck. I pushed him away and grabbed Maya by the collar. I like to think, at that moment, he told himself he had picked the wrong woman to mess with. He looked at me one last time, only for a second, and then simply walked away. I waited and followed him from a distance just in case he decided he wasnt done yet. He was getting into a car. I repeated the license plate number over and over in my head and ran back inside to call 911.
The police arrived after only a couple of minutes. Officers gathered evidence and asked so many questions. I told them how Maya had come to my rescue. I also told them that Maya had something red on her face. They asked me if she was alright or if she was injured. When I checked her, she looked up at me and had such a proud look on her face. She was licking her chops and wagging her tail. If dogs could talk, I think at that moment she would have said he sure wasnt expecting to see me, was he? Maya was fine. Now the officers were trying to determine the best way to swab the head of an angry pit bull. After a couple of tries, and lots of patience, they were able to retrieve what they needed. I told myself that he was going to be arrested the same day. He wasnt. Everyday following the attack, I worried that he would be back.
Sometime later, Detective Kimber asked me to come down to the station. He had pictures of potential suspects and wanted to know if any of them looked like my attacker. After writing out a statement about one of the photos, Detective Kimber said we processed the DNA and got a match. It was same man that I had picked from the photos. The lab had processed the blood from Mayas face and got a match. I could not believe it. It turns out this man had a record and this was his third strike. He was arrested shortly after being identified. Anthony Easley, 38 years old, now facing life in prison if convicted. After the arrest, Maya became the local hero. Ive learned that our story has reached across the country. I wish everyone knew how grateful I am for the support and the prayers. It makes each day a little easier to deal with. I cry sometimes when I hug Maya and ask her What would I do without you? But first, I thank God for bringing Maya into my life.

Yes. I don't think I could afford to pay him Union wages!
LOL, that puma looks awfully surprised, like he doesn't know what bit him!
A badger is one nasty critter...seen stories of them taking a carcas from a bear...I am sure that a lot of men can relate this to their X wives...(just kidding)
A great story, good doggy...glad your still with us all.

I would suggest a 45ACP.
though the Ridgeback would fare better...Irish Wolfies while magnificent creatures are coursers and have had their once more aggressive nature bred out more so
the most likely dog to handle a Pit would be either a Leopard Catahoula or a big Staffie or a Standard American Bulldog..which I own though that had NOTHING to do with my choice...I just always wanted one ...they are the old Southern hunt and catch bulldog you see in all the old romantic landscapes of the late 1700s and early 1800s which were revived 40 years ago and split into the Southern Scott mastiff nosed and the bulkier wrinkled Johnson Classic style...mine is black with long snapper tail and floppy laid back ears and a lippy snout...and sorta lanky but powerful..27 inches withers and 130 lbs at 2-3 years maturity..pic of his mirror image daddy on my profile page
mine is very human friendly but tough as nails and strong as a gargoyle and built like one too...70 lbs at 7 months...but beware they are a LOT to handle and need a lot of family time and running and cannot be left with lapdogs...EXTREMELY underfoot family dogs....of all the large guard breeds I've owned I've never had one that wants to be piled up with us 24-7 so much...doesn't run off more than 30-40 yards on out back 10
other than that Dogos probably might survive too against a Pit...
Caucasian mountain dog too
Pitbulls are the preeminent dog fighter which is not a reason for anyone to own one...I loathe sport dog fighting...it is brutal and Godawful
Chet hates Pits...he has reasons I reckon but I don't share it
one should remember that just because a dog like a Pit is a strong dog fighter does not translate into a potent mankiller or guard...if it did then more highly trained perimeter dogs would be Pits instead of Shepherds, Rotts , and Dobies....
a true pitbull is only around 55-60 pounds as a male and rangy...many folks now have crossed them with bigger bulldogs or Rotts to make a bigger Pit...but from what I read the stamina question still makes the rangier smaller Pits more potent dogfighters...for what that is worth....I live in semi rural Tennessee and do venture into the mountains and know real hillbillies and have been told though I refuse to attend a dog fight
don't mind cock fights though...I just don't think man's best friend or even cats should be abused
needless to say toddlers should not be unsupervised around the dogs I've mentioned...or any dog really but larger dogs can inflict mortal injury so much quicker...that is common sense
I did not get a Pit to replace our Dobie because my wife was wary...and it was not a battle worth fighting and besides we narrowed it down to her approval for either a Cane Corso, Anatolian Shepherd or American Bulldog...all pretty damned good choices for a mommy to suggest...we did not want to try to replace our beloved Dobie with another and we waited a few years for baby to get past 3
that is a puppy too...look at the paws...they get very big
mine is a hair snoutier...but liver lipped too..many are now Johnson-Scott hybrids
mine is really kind of hound doggie..not an alarmist about people...course he still young
but my Dobie at 7 months was a sentry already
I think Am Bulldogs, and maybe a Rot would fare well against a pit, the thing is, those trained, bred, pit-figher bulls are simply nuts... maybe a mutated dachund, 60 lbs or more, would fare well..
577,000 for snake attacks
a fight trained pitbull is evry bit as dangerous as Chet says...I can’t argue that.
I am unfortunately a bit familiar with such matters given where I live and travel on my business days.
Training pits to fight makes monsters.
I have seen a lot of regular dogfights over bitches as a boy back before leash laws and we would watch them or spray water at them.
An ABM or Rottie has more leg exposed than a pit does...a smart pit will crack that leg first or tear out that exposed belly under taller legs than a squaty pit has...and well...you can guess the rest.
No way would I have a rescued true fighting pit around anyone but the owner rescuer...
that’s funny..dang Shelties are active too...our ABD is very active
but he loves to just be right with us....right now is on his 150 foot hang lead while I think about electric fence or fenced run which I know he will dig up but I guarantee he is staring at the back door waiting for wifey to come fetch him...if I don’t block the stairs he will go up to the boy’s room and get on their beds with them...and maybe poop in guest room for good measure...he has big cage in the back door foyer...my vet’s property backs up to mine...she told us we better get a cage...she was right
And what would the headline have been if the snake didn't kill the pit bull?
