Shouldn’t he have called in the police to shoot the dog?

All that for a retrieved pinky finger that could not be re-attached.

Dog needed shooting if it took off someone’s finger, regardless of the desire to retrieve said finger.

A Malamute-wolf sounds like the perfect family pet. I can’t imagine what went wrong.

They could have “rescued” an abused Pitt Bull for a family pet.

Of course a A Malamute-wolf dog in the Tampa, Fl area is a perfect dog for the cold weather in Tampa.

Finger food is not appropriate dogs.

Malamute-wolf for a family pet. Why not let the kid play with something safer like a boxful of diamondback rattlers?

Stupid-assed parents.

No, there were guns on the property, that would have put his whole neighborhood in danger. The old keystone cops were funny, till they were issued automatic weapons and black face masks.

Wolf-dogs are a handful, but malamutes are impossible to fully tame. A Mali-wolf is a nightmare breed. Rebellion coupled with intellegence and power.

Beyond stupid.

Sounds like April Fool’s.

If not, well, between digestive acids, protein dissolving enzymes, and zillions of bacteria, most likely this was not the correct solution, for the dog, or for the finger.

My SIL kept a Siberian Husky in an 800 sq ft apartment alone during the day while she went to work. The dog ripped up all her wall to wall carpeting. She finally got rid of the dog after it attacked her when she tried to take the plastic wrapping from a pork butt out of his mouth.

Some people don’t understand that big animals are big animals, not cuddly toys.

We have rescued an abused pit bull and she is the sweetest dog you will ever run across. Just don't try and take a swing at me or my wife and you'll be fine.

“Should of just gave him the finger? “ Yep, just after the wolf whistle to get his attention.

My husband shot a malamute once. He went to check the cattle and the Malamute and a smaller dog had a cow anc calf in a corner. He didn’t have a gun so he got out to shoo them away and the smaller dog ran and the Malamute growled at him and came toward him.

He went and got a gun and when he got back the Malamute was still there.

Later that day the owners came and asked if I had seen a Malamute and I honestly told them no.

So you have a family dog — a Malamute-wolf — and you keep it in a cage — and you have children

Okay — he’s lucky that he only lost a pinky finger.

Sound like the formula for a perfect dog pack to turn loose on a Democrat National Convention.

Wise move. I hope you had the evidence buried by that time.

In my days as an EMT, I remember searching the yard for a man’s fingers after they were cut off in a lawn mower accident. After a fruitless search we concluded that the man’s dog had likely eaten the severed fingers. We made no attempt to get the fingers back from the dog.

“you’d be surprised how many idiots have malamutes, huskys, and chows here in Tampa.”

That is basically cruelty to innocent animals.

Something similar would be taking dogs bred to survive tropical heat with tight/light body hair to live in Alaska as an outside dog in the winter.
