Chihuahua lures pit bull attacking Chilliwack girl
CBC ^

Posted on 03/26/2013 8:40:49 PM PDT by Arthurio

A four-year-old Chihuahua came to the rescue of an eight-year-old Chilliwack girl after a neighbour's pit bull attacked her and began biting her face.

Jenna Desrochers was outside in a backyard last Tuesday at around 5 p.m. PT when the neighbour's pit bull broke free from its enclosure and went after her.

Soon after, her grandmother's Chihuahua came to the rescue.

Anne Marie Desrochers, Jenna's grandmother, says the pit bull knocked Jenna down and began biting her face. Honey, a four-year-old Chihuahua, then came to the rescue by drawing the attacking dog away.

"The pit bull took Jenna down at the knees, that's what the owner had told me, and basically went for her face."

"Then, the Chihuahua was around...The pit bull ran for the Chihuaua. She was distracted enough," Desrochers said.

After a discussion between the families, the neighbour agreed that the pit bull should be put down.

If it were me and my daughter, the negotiations would have centered around who was going to clean the dog's brains off the side of my house.

And for the little chihuhua, her favorite food every day for the rest of her life...

Does anyone understand the difference in dog breeds between the savages like pits, Preso Canarios, etc etc, and dogs that bond, like tiny chihuahuas, or more regular sized Boxers, or Labs, etc...

...he has young kids and owns a pitt bull. Someone had to say it! And I'm not referring to Giselle, he also has a real one.

No pittbull should be allowed in a residential neighborhood.

I had one of those things stalking me in my neighborhood. Scariest feeling I’ve had in a long time. Happily when I told the neighbor about she said she had been worried about the dog lately. She took it to the pound. Dog dead and gone now.

The term pit bull refers the following breeds: the American Pit Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and any crosses between the three.

Hellen Keller and her pit bull "Sir Thomas".

Nipper the pit bull, famous as the symbol of RCA Victor. ( "His Master's Voice.")

Sgt. Stubby, died on March 16, 1926, as a WWI hero. Sergeant Stubby is the most decorated dog in military history, and the only dog to have been promoted during battle. He fought for 18 months in the trenches for France during WW1 for 17 battles. Stubby warned his fellow soldiers of gas attacks, located wounded soldiers in No Man's Land, and listened for oncoming artillery rounds. He was also responsible for the capture of a German spy at Argonne.

Pal, The Wonder Dog, aka Pete the Pup (Hal Roach's Our Gang) Poisoned to death, November 30, 1929.

Lucenay's Peter, son of Pal, The Wonder Dog, aka Pete the Pup, retired 1930.

The nicest of them all:

Lily! A cross between a Lab, Shepherd, Rotti and Pit Bull and a cuddly baby.

THEY ALL LOOK LIKE KILLERS, DON'T THEY! Too bad they weren't euthanised also! HOW ABOUT THIS ONE:

A WWI poster depiction the UNITED STATES as a PIT BULL! "Perhaps YOU want to euthanize that one as well! I think Turd-owe-with-a-tan, aka Obamugabe, has you beat. So who is "Sabotaging_America"?

SARC. OFF!

I’ve got two rescue dogs, both clearly part pit bull. I have had one for nine years and the other for four. They are sweet and loving and very gentle. I have never witnessed a single aggressive act. They bark like hell but since it’s usually at nothing I don’t count that as aggressive.

Well Sonny, 30 years ain’t much history.

They were not unlike keeping a hot young blond girlfriend, you had to watch em pretty close.

One of the best dogs I ever had was a Pit Boxer cross. He looked just like Lil Rascal’s Petey.

Certainly would not have a Pit today considering all the lowlife’s that don’t have the good sense to not in-breed them.

Fewer people than necessary.

Most people have a false perception of most animals wild and domestic, according to what they want to believe.

Clearly you and the rest of the anti-pit because you aren't smart enough to know any better group here do not.

It is clear most FReepers on most threads are reasonable, intelligent and conservative but when the words pit bull come into play they swerve to the left of Nancy Pelosi and became shrill, whiny, liberal bed wetters with zero intelligence and nothing but old wives tales and their prejudicial misunderstanding of all things canine.

The checklist...

1) Large and/or aggressive breed of dog? Pit Bull, a frequent offender.

2) Running loose, often >1 running loose? Escaped from a not secure enough back yard.

3) Prior reports of aggressive behavior? Unknown.

4) Unreasonable expectation of passivity, often despite #3 above? Well seeings as how the beast escaped, I would say the owner was not adequately prepared for it wanting to escape to attack.

Score = 3 out of 4.

Okay okay okay! I'll make you a deal; Every Pitt Bull currently in existence be allowed to live out it's life, BUT THE BREED ITSELF MUST BE EXTERMINATED IN THE U.S. SPAY AND NEUTER ALL STARTING TODAY (AND NO IMPORTS EITHER).

Regardless how much you love your Pitt Bull of how highly you think of them, NEVER allow them near small children. They can 'turn' on a dime. Why do you think the animal shelters are FULL of Pitt Bulls? BECAUSE THEIR OWN OWNERS BECOME AFRAID OF THEM!!! Your Pitt Bull may be 'cute' today, but what do dogs do when they get old and cranky? They bite! The animal shelters are FULL of OLD Pitt Bulls for this very reason.

I am the biggest dog lover in the world, but c'mon people.. Do you think just anyone should be allowed to own a TIGER, too? I didn't think so!

  

BAN THE BREED:

PERHAPS WE SHOULD EXTERMINATE CANDY ASSED, GAY BOB LIBERALS WHO KNOW EVER SO MUCH BUT THAT EVERYTHING THEY KNOW IS WRONG? See, I can yell too.

Regardless how much you love your Pitt Bull of how highly you think of them, NEVER allow them near small children. They can 'turn' on a dime.

My pit has been around dozens of children with no incidents. Further Pits don't "turn on a dimes" idiot liberals do.

Why do you think the animal shelters are FULL of Pitt Bulls? BECAUSE THEIR OWN OWNERS BECOME AFRAID OF THEM!!!

No, it is because ignorant dumbass like liberals and gang banger butt holes don't know how to care for a dog.

Your Pitt Bull may be 'cute' today, but what do dogs do when they get old and cranky? They bite! The animal shelters are FULL of OLD Pitt Bulls for this very reason.

Wrong AGAIN, go back and read the part about dumb-asses and gang bangers above.

To put your ridiculous pontification in perspective I bet you believe in "common sense gun control" too.

THE BREED ITSELF MUST BE EXTERMINATED

Once again, start with mine ya liberal n00bie.

For starters, I have nothing against YOU personally as you are a FReeper so we share a common political ideology, including our 2nd Amendment rights. Go ahead with the personal attacks if you choose, but that is not my style.

Secondly, your dog appears to have some Labrador in it and/or perhaps Springer Spaniel. He does not have the jowls of a Pitt Bull. I wouldn't even consider yours an American Pitt Bull if I saw it.

Let's talk about REAL Pitt Bulls, shall we?

Vicious little creatures... I had to tear them loose from Sam.

They say you can tell a dog's emotion from its expression.
What does Sam's expression say? It looks to me like....

'It just doesn't get any better than this.'

You have only been on FR for a few minutes so this may be your first rodeo. I have been showing people the error of their ways concerning pits for going on a decade and a half. By virtue of that I have seen the most liberal, idiotic, stupid and incredibly ridiculous posts over the years. Just a bunch of BS.

As to my dog you once again put your ignorance on display. He is half pit and half Red Heeler. Neither breed is a slouch when it comes to being strong intelligent dogs.

I doubt very many Springer mixes weigh 85 pounds either, which is considerably larger than all but the largest pits. Also he isn’t stupid so even if I didn’t know his parentage I would have known he has not a single drop of Labrador blood.

You want to talk real pits? Well, you can’t because you don’t know anything about them. By the way it is pit not Pitt.

The problem is not the breed, so much as the owner. For some 'feral' types, a dog seems to be a projection of what they want others to think of them. They think that they are 'cool' or 'tough' by having a pit bull-type, or a Rotti, or a Doberman, large male German Shepherd, etc. Personally, I think that many of these 'people' are making up for a lack of 'Y' chromosome. It doesn't help that there are movies such as this, promoting that 'life'style and people that buy into 'thuglife':

Could be worse though; 'thuglife' in the ghettos of Africa:

Yes, hyenas and baboons!

The problem is that once you exterminate the pit bull, the media will move on to another 'extremely dangerous' type of dog. They will focus on it, then the 'ganstas', wannabes and 'I am SOOOOO tough!' types will glom onto that breed. The cycle will begin again!

I agree that SOME dogs should be destroyed, but many can be rehabilitated. A person has to choose a dog with the right temperment and then, they must be willing to train that dog. Look at the number of Michael Vick's dogs that have been rehabilitated!

I do not believe that the extermination of a dog breed is in order, as I mentioned above. I do however, have a RADICAL suggestion to solve the problem of dog attacks. Take a page out of Sharia law. If a dog seriously bites someone, especially a child and it can be shown that the dog was not teased, the owner should be castrated and/or pay recompense to the injured party. Second time? Lose an arm at the elbow. After a few of the feral thugs and 'tough guys' get this treatment, perhaps the breeding of ever bigger and stronger dogs, and the training that makes them viscious, will be cut back.

Like my Lily, it looks like your girl doesn’t like the camera either! I’ve got some friends whose adult son has a pure bred pit bull named King. The biggest potential source of injury from King would be an assault by a quickly wagging tail, or else being licked to death! I am sure that some of the more panicky Freepers may consider he is just ‘having a taste’ before biting! (sarc)

When 60 pound King visits his mother and dad’s house, he plays with a 9 pound Pug and a 25 pound Pug/Miniature American Eskimo-X. Guess who is the boss? Yes, the 9 pound Pug.
