I know this is crazy, but part of me thinks he bit the vet because he’s a dog.

The vet, perhaps. But there was also the friend. And a couple who lives in motels (Alameda and Reno) ought not keep a pitbull.

Bu-Bye. One less set of mechanized diabolical choppers on the street to harm or kill another person or another dog.

You know after I posted that I thought, oh, that sounds like I’m being sarcastic. Actually, I was not. I meant to say I was considering that an animal in a human world is apt to behave any way an animal might. Some dogs bite. Just the way it is. They are not able to understand right from wrong, as we in our world do.

I do understand the animal should prob be destroyed but I feel sorry for him. Kind of like King Kong brought into a world where all he could do was act like what he was, an animal. His natural aggressive nature led him to his death.

I have a pit bull mix either with a Dalmatian or a pointer. She is very sweet but can be a handful ( Think of Marly)!

Feel sorry for the maimed and disfigured person whose life is never the same after such a vicious beast designed and bred to maul human flesh has torn at their limbs, and neck, and face. Feel sorry for the beautiful children whose smiles and lives are destroyed and the adults who have to under go surgery after surgery. Don’t feel sorry for the irrational creature that is quietly gassed and goes to sleep. Yes animals are animals and people are people. There is is wide chasm between the two.

These dogs need some kind of test. If they can be shown to behave among their own "doggy" companions, they can probably be trusted among their human companions.

I've been following this story. The dog has a history of bites. With a pit bull you cannot take a chance. The dog must be killed.

Instead of feeling sorry for the dog, save those warm fuzzy thoughts for a child out there somewhere that will not have his face ripped off by this dog.

Since you’ve been following this story, I was wondering about the owners of the dog. The lifestyle, intelligence, and choice of dog seems to me to be that of a drug dealer. Was there ever any type of information that this was the cse?

Evidently there are some who cannot experience both feelings. I can.

“These dogs need some kind of test. If they can be shown to behave among their own “doggy” companions, they can probably be trusted among their human companions.”

This is one of the most ridiculous propositions I’ve ever read.

With the exceptions of breeds ~created~ to hunt “peacefully” in packs, [i.e. most hounds and some bird dog breeds] *all* breeds can be “dog aggressive”.

Two un-neutered males will *probably* fight.
Two unspayed bitches will *probably* fight.

Even neutering them will *probably* -not- change that inherent instinct.

Regardless of breed, “the wolves in your living room” -will- establish some kind of “pack hierarchy” whether it be through bloody fights or mere [but effectively impressive] posturing.

To say that we should only be able to “trust them with people” based on their behavior with other dogs is madness.

I would propose that a much more logical test should be for prospective -owners-.

*They* should have to pass a test based on whether or not they fully understand dog body/vocal language and how a dog’s mind is hard-wired to work.

*Most* people would fail that test.

Well, that is certainly to your credit. In the instance of this dog, I was trying to put your mind at ease that the dog has been showing vicious tendencies and it is only a matter of time before a serious mauling of someone.

In this case, feel sorry that the dog turned out to be evil, not that the dog will be killed.
