PITTSBURGH -- A Churchill man adopted the dog police said killed an infant last week in McKeesport.
The man, who did not want to be identified, said he and the baby's father made a deal on Tuesday. Howard Nicholson signed the husky over to him and he paid the dog catcher fees and veterinary bills for the dog's broken leg.
"Allegheny County and the dog catcher deemed him safe for release. They weren't putting the dog down, so we said we will relieve you of the financial burden. We want the husky to get proper medical care and a proper home," the man said.
The man told Channel 11's Renee Kaminski that he understand how some may be shocked that he wanted the animal that mauled a 3-day-old child, but he said he believes the dog did it because of the poor circumstances it was under.

The “mother” is an idiot and shouldn’t be procreating. Fine. Sterilize her.
Kill the dog first. This isn’t that hard.
Give me a gun or a ballpin hammer
I will kill the damned dog
WTF is wrong with people?
one of my big bulldogs bit one of my boys bad...i almost killed the dog..damn I loved the old boy too much
instead gave him to my hoghunting buddy down near Okefenokee...he is very lucky I had to drive 60 miles to get home and cool down and the boy begged me not to
when i was a boy you shot any pet that hurt folks
but kill a person....kill the damn dog...I cannot believe that
any dog in state of Tennesse...and we are hicks with badassed dogs to match our guns and purty cousins..we love fighting type and protection dogs..I admit it
a dog hurts a kid requiring a serious hospital stay of over 24 hours and it is mandated the dog is exterminated
doesn't matter how
“oh it's ok the mom pu the baby in front of the dog”
hence it's not the poor dogs fault
“don't kill it for retaliation”
I swear sometimes I understand why we get ridiculed here and this is one of them
I'm 54 and have had over half dozen tuff dogs from Alsatians to black face Rotts to Hoyt Dobies to Huge American Bulldogs..both Southern Standard and Johnson lines
and I have had many of my toddlers...5 in total..lie on my dogs...sleep with them ...ride em like horsies
yet these dogs would or will kill you if provoked...one almost did kill an Amish home invading rapist in Gainesville Fl in 1989...saved my girlfriends life
but none of these dogs attacked toddlers for playing
but if they had I woulda killed em quick
i am flabberghasted the depth that animal idoltry sinks to even here
Dog that killed baby set to be euthanized
Husky's new owner vows to appeal
i love dogs but i completely agree with you
its an issue you have to be a hard case about, when a dog kills a child its programmed wrong
you can feel sorry for the dog but you have to put it down
we used to have a problem with wild dogs in the country
everything from german shepherds to little schnauzers even dogs that still had collars on them
they would come on a farm and murder everything
come and leave like ghosts no barking or anything looking for anything they could kill
a wolf in a pack is programmed he acts like a wolf
a domestic dog has no programming other than what humans give it
and it can go wrong, people who think they can love it back are often trying to love back a silent killer waiting for a brain trigger to be tripped
btw ‘murder everything’ means livestock, and other dogs
sometimes a dog joined them, sometimes they killed it
