Murray County Deputy Greg Morrison put his arm around the FULL TITLE: Officer has face mauled by police K9 when he tried to take selfie with it

AA Georgia deputy sheriff was rushed to the hospital Monday after a police bit his face, ripping open his chin and lip. Murray County Deputy Greg Morrison put his arm around the Malinois after a job well done in an attempt to take a selfie with his cell phone. But the professional pup was in no mood for camaraderie and proved it with a vicious snap at Morrison's chin. 'It’s an act of aggression to them whenever you do that,' Major Greg Fowler told the Dalton Daily Citizen, referring to Morrison's ill advised decision to wrap an arm around the dog.

I too got lightly nipped in the face by my Malinois , when she was young . My offense : I blew in her ear .... Be very careful with young and vital Malinios , some can be hair trigger . They mellow with age , into the dearest creatures imaginable . Truly your best friend . Just don’t f with them :^)

Officer has face truncated by dog. (That he’d shoot on sight at any other time.)

Curious if the camera or the phone might be emitting a high frequency noise that upset the dog.

The dog just knew that selfies are stupid and let the cop know it.

Possibly, but more likely that the dog interpreted the cop being so close as a threat.

No kidding. Dogs are not primates people. All dogs bite.

Don't extend your hand to a dog, that is not a friendly gesture to a canine.

And don't think they like being hugged. They don't.

An arm over a dog, let alone around his neck, is considered an act of dominance. Stupid move by the cop that was sure to bring some response.

So, you're saying that it would be safe to attempt a selfie with a wild chimpanzee, orangutan, or gorilla?

Probably that and/or an IR focus.

'We’re praying for the deputy and everything to be fine with him. ..""

I think the CO must have broke out laughing hysterically after issuing this statement. I mean, "praying"? Over a torn lip?? I simply cannot picture him saying that with a straight face.

I'm sure the other guys at the station will be yucking it up at his expense tomorrow.

I do a lot of behavioral rehab and work with dogs and hang out with some who are solid behaviorists. Most dogs hate being hugged but tolerate it. Nonetheless under the right circumstances any dog will bite you with enough stressors.

dog behavioralist teaching

dogs don’t make “ventral/ventral” contact (chest to chest, belly to belly) like primates do when they are nursing, and thus don’t develop a positive association between ventral/ventral contact and feeling nurtured and loved

I’ve been watching some of the Dog Whisperer’s videos. Some things seems questionable to me.

For one thing, sometimes it looks like the audio has been re-edited to suit the behaviors of the animals. You know - “now she’s going to do this..” then it happens. But did he say it before or after the event?

What do you think of him?

A flash capacitor loading up just might produce the sort of whine that would disturb a dog.

He is a complete idiot and has set back good training decades perhaps. If you need behavior help with a dog let me know.

He has no education. He was a dogwalker.

He is also a bully and uses physical aggression with dogs, which does not work to change behavior. It just makes them afraid of you or defensive.

Thanks. Yeah, he had me scratching my head a number of times - seemed like an odd approach that gave short term, but possibly not long term results.

I don’t have any specific problems with my dogs - I’m just interested as I live in Thailand and am forever taking in strays or at least trying to help them out when practical so the more knowledge I have, the better.

I’ll PM you if anything comes up, though.

Dogs are not primates, people. All dogs bite.

I remember what a veterinarian told me one time: "All dogs which are alive and have teeth WILL bite under the right circumstances." Obviously, this guy didn't understand that.

“... will bite under the right circumstances”.

I’ve known some K9 officers through the years. The handler in this case is 100% to blame. First, K9 dogs aren’t “normal” dogs. They are trained at a young age to bite. The schooling of the dogs is intense from my understanding.. dogs that don’t show aggression when needed are washed out of the program. Secondly, the dogs get into a state of mind. When the cop “hugged” the dog to show a good job.. WRONG. I’ve been told to get them out of that type of state of mind.. the handler will remove them from all other people and reward them with a ball. The ball is used to bring the dog’s agitated state back to “normal”. The handler disregarded all of his training for a selfie.. the dog’s reaction probably isn’t surprising at all to professional, experienced K9 handlers. IMHO.

If you want to have a dog that cooperates with you, you have to use dog language correctly.

Hey, that is great! Do you live here? Phuket has the best dog assistance and control program in Thailand - by far. I think Soi Dog Foundation is primarily responsible for that.

Poodle Attacks Pit Bull

A local man was charged after his poodle attacked a pit bull and he allegedly threatened two boys with a knife, police said.

Luis Velez, 42, of Benton Street in Springfield, was identified as the poodle owner.

The boys, 14 and 15, were walking their pit bull along Benton Street around 8:20 p.m. Monday when Velez’s poodle attacked, police said. The boys tried to get the poodle away from their pit bull but couldn’t.

yep , just goofing around .
she reacted by biting me in the lip , lightly .
I bled....

Not a trained K-9 , so it could have been worse .
The point is to be careful with Malinois , esp when they are young and feisty

"Don’t put your face in a dogs face and don’t your head over a dogs head."

I wasn't aware of that rule back when my sister-in-law owned a German Shepherd for protection. He was trained to kill if necessary, but with family he was a big sweeet darling. Sometimes I would lean down and place my cheek on top of his head. There was never an incident, though. He was a good boy who was very tolerant of my ignorance.
