Monday, April 26, 2010

An 11-year-old Toledo girl who was attacked by two Pit Bulls is honoring the good samaritan she says saved her life.

Today was the first time Sarabeth McAdams and her 18-year-old rescuer Sam Granata met since the attack. Sarabeth's mother arranged the meeting because she wanted to personally thank the man she says saved her daughter's life.

Just over a week ago, Sarabeth was riding her bike when she was attacked by two Pit Bulls. Granata was on his way home from work when he saw the attack. Today, a tearful Sarabeth expressed her gratitude to Granata.

Does that ‘river horse’ has that slightly distant look because it is enjoying the flavor of the pack of pit bulls it just swallowed?

Pit Bulls are worthless and should be spayed off the planet.

"After all she's been through, Sarabeth McAdams still wants to be a veterinarian and says she doesn't blame the dogs."

" Sarabeth says she still loves dogs, especially pit bulls. But she has a message for all dog owners. "People should take more care of their dogs and not train them to hurt people."

Kid shows more sense and maturity than some FReepers.

I remember in the 80’s they were having trouble with St. Barnard’s becoming vicious. The reason was the puppy mills were churning them out because they were the dog of choice then. I would imagine that is the current problem with these dogs, being churned out with no care of proper breeding.

Eleven-year-old Sarabeth McAdams

With Sarabeth screaming for help, Mr. Granata, a University of Toledo freshman, said he grabbed a shovel from a neighboring house and began hitting the lead "pit bull" as it attacked her.

That got the dog's attention, and it stopped biting her and tried to get at him.

maybe because you could out run a pug if it ever tried to kill you?

I’m being sarcastic. My way of telling everyone with little dog breeds they are fools. They have defective animals and aren’t smart enough to know it.

Yes, along with irresponsible and indiscriminate selling of dogs
without regard to the suitability of prospective buyers.

As well as owners uneducated about or unconcerned with, responsible dog ownership.

There is absolutely no context to the alledged stories in your link. At the very least Chet provides the complete story, along with the ability to verify the source. You’ve got nothing.

Our baby is a Boxador. She is quite the trip half boxer and half Labrador. In reality she is probable around 65 percent lab. She is almost 5 years old and she is still our big baby.

When is enough enough? People won’t be able to go out and walk babies in strollers or kids ride their bikes or pull their wagons. This has got to stop. Thank God for the hero that stopped to help this young girl. Too bad someone didn’t do the same for the homeless man that was left on the ground bleeding to death. Now he is in heaven.

As stated before, you have shown nothing. Only regurgitation of pro-pit bull crap. It's amazing how easily people like you dismiss statistics that don't fit your narrow minded point of view.

A good many of the people raising pit bulls want viciousness as a trait and presumably would intentionally breed for it.
