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. 'Its 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 :^)
Hand always ready between muzzle and face. No exceptions.
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.
schaudenfreude. the one dog he can’t shoot.
Possibly, but more likely that the dog interpreted the cop being so close as a threat.
More that just close - he put his arm around its neck!!
Wait, did he shoot the dog? And why the heck not?
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.
Local to me BFL, gotta see just how well you guys roast the lackwit.
So, you're saying that it would be safe to attempt a selfie with a wild chimpanzee, orangutan, or gorilla?
I once had a chance to take a selfie with Mike Tyson but had second thoughts about losing an ear. :)
“Curious if the camera or the phone might be emitting a high frequency noise that upset the dog.”
Probably that and/or an IR focus.
'Were 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.
You blew in your dog’s ear?
dogs dont make ventral/ventral contact (chest to chest, belly to belly) like primates do when they are nursing, and thus dont develop a positive association between ventral/ventral contact and feeling nurtured and loved
