A baby boy has died after he was attacked by his familys mastiff dog during his first birthday party.
A day after turning one, Jeremiah Eshew-Shahan was at his grandmothers house in Las Vegas when he crawled over to the dog a mastiff-rhodesian mix weighing about 120 pounds and started to pet him. The dog then attacked the baby, sinking his teeth into Jeremiahs head and shaking him...

Look at this horror. She is 14 pounds of terror, right?
Not only are you ignorant, but you militantly cling to that ignorance in the face of the facts. You accuse me of paranoia, but I never said that you're not supposed to have dogs. Sounds like YOU'RE a bit paranoid to me.
Oh, and you want to post some dog/kid pictures? Here are a few for you
Before Milan grabbed the fame and glory, this guy was the real/original deal
You can still find his books on Amazon and they far exceed what you’ll read in Milan’s ramblings.
I could post pictures from car crashes...would that justify banning cars? How many die from drunk drivers - does that mean we need prohibition?
Yes, there are stupid people, and there are also mean dogs. And stupid people are more likely to own mean dogs.
There are also millions of good dogs and dog owners, raising millions of happy kids in constant contact with dogs. I have 50+ years of living with dogs with no injuries of me or of anyone who has ever met us. It isn’t hard. And if I were inclined to take pictures, I’d have a thousand of kids playing with dogs - all without anyone ever being hurt. Deal with it, and stop supporting and promoting people like (from your link):
“Kenneth M. Phillips is the only attorney in the USA who does nothing other than represent people who have been seriously injured by dogs. Widely recognized as the nation’s leading authority on dog bite law, he has earned tens of millions of dollars for dog bite victims all over the USA.”
Now THAT is an unbiased source...
As for what you said, let’s go to the tape:
“I have to ask, Why is it so important to have a dog? You apparently are an intelligent person, and are well aware that dogs are dangerous and can hurt your children. To me one child is worth a million dogs. Why put any child at risk? Dogs killing children is not common, but dogs injuring children severely enough to require the services of a plastic surgeos is a very common event.”
‘Ax Men’ Star’s Daughter Killed by Family Dog
The 4-year-old daughter of Jesse Browning — one of the stars of The History Channel’s “Ax Men” — died tragically yesterday in Oregon after being mauled by one of the family’s pet Rottweilers.
Jesse — whose father owns the “Browning Logging” company featured on the show — called 911 around 1 PM after the dog attacked his daughter Ashlynn at the family home, this according to Clatsop County Sheriff Tom Bergin.
We’re told Ashlynn was airlifted to the Oregon Health and Science University Hospital in Portland shortly after the attack ... but was pronounced dead on arrival.
We’re told cops are investigating the incident.
Sheriff Bergin tells TMZ the dog involved in the attack — along with another Rottweiler owned by the family — was taken to a nearby animal shelter for a mandatory hold.
The family will be given three options on the fate of their dogs — they can take them back into the home (with restrictions), adopt the dogs out to another family ... or choose to have them euthanized.
And there’s this: Bergin said four months ago to the day, one of the family’s other Rottweilers attacked another family member — that dog was put down after the attack.
And the point is?
For years, I have always had a somewhat ‘serious’ dog around, some were lovers of children, some aren’t. That said, any larger breed dog can hurt kids inadvertently and I never leave even my 10 year old grandson alone with my dog. I have a trained mali and my dog will definitely bite, but is a baby with kids and family, but a rough enough player that you don’t leave them alone. Just common sense. Dogs will sometimes act aggressive to certain people, for reasons we can’t comprehend, even commonly non-protective breeds. The only time I have been seriously bitten was by a neighbor’s coonhound that just walked up to me sniffed my leg and took hold. Nobody knew why, he never had done it before or after.
I thought you wanted to post some dog/child interaction pictures. Since you gave some examples I decided to do the same. If you don't like my pictues, then don't post your mawkish pictures.
would that justify banning cars?
Please show me where I recommended banning dogs.
Now THAT is an unbiased source
Dogs bite children - frequently. CDC unbiased enough for you? (of course not any reality that contradicts your world view is to be discredited), but From the cdc web site:
Each year, 800,000 Americans seek medical attention for dog bites; half of these are children. Of those injured, 386,000 require treatment in an emergency department and about 16 die. The rate of dog bite-related injuries is highest for children ages 5 to 9 years, and the rate decreases as children age. Almost two thirds of injuries among children ages four years and younger are to the head or neck region. Injury rates in children are significantly higher for boys than for girls.Your denying the reality show that you're more than a bit irrational on the subject of dogs.
Deal with it,
Au contrair. You're the one who needs to "deal with it." Pull your head out of the sand and realize that dogs are dangerous. - particularly dangerous to children. If you want to put your children at risk I couldn't care less, but presumably someone who isn't as irrational about dogs as you are might think twice about putting their child at risk just to have a pet.
There’s no point because you are far to emotional to have an intelligent conversation.
Had you been cuddling with coons prior to the dog approaching you? ;]
I know what you mean.
The Dobe has an obsession with kids to the point of being idiotic about it.
His only desire in life is that they let him snuggle and kiss them.
However, he is a very big dog and his mad desire to entertain them could be harmful to kids too small to deal with his ‘give it all ya got’ paw shakes.
When they pet him, he does the typical “Dobe Donuts” wiggling ecstatically in a circle thing and I have to be careful that his big rump doesn’t accidentally knock them down.
I’m a spectacularly lousy judge of character but he isn’t it.
If acts edgy about some stranger, I take his word for it and move away from them.
On the flip side of that, people that I thought “looked scary”, he loved right up to immediately.
He apparently sees things ‘inside them’ that I can’t.
Just kidding about the coon cuddling.
My dad had a Bluetick who was completely berserk.
He was so afraid of the dog that I had to feed and care for it.
“Rock” never managed to bite me but it wasn’t for lack of trying.
IMO, he probably could’ve benefited from a full tick panel just to make sure he didn’t have Lyme or Ehrlichiosis because otherwise, he was just plumb mean.
Helluva coon hunter, though.
Anybody care to guess *the* #1 cause of death for children in the US?
Their own mothers.
Ban pit moms.
[locally, just recently, a “mom” was waiting in the welfare office and decided to repeatedly stab her little daughter in the chest and head]
She should be euthanized...but she won’t be.
She’ll be “evaluated”, “medicated” and back on the streets all too soon.
So tell me why a dumb animal who cannot truly understand the consequences of its deeds pays the heavier penalty when a “mom” with intent and intellect brutally murders her own child?
FYI, Kenneth M. Phillips has gotten filthy rich by promoting anti-dog litigious hysteria.
He should write for Snopes.
From the unbiased CDC:
“And according to numbers compiled from 16 states by the National Violent Death Reporting System at the CDC Injury Center, 130 children were killed in those states by a parent in 2008, the last year for which numbers were available.”
That number does not include non-fatal injuries.
“Pull your head out of the sand and realize that dogs are dangerous. - particularly dangerous to children.”
Wrong. AGGRESSIVE dogs are dangerous. Kids that don’t know squat about dogs are dangerous to themselves. Strange dogs should not be trusted.
But that list is not ALL dogs. Many dogs would give their lives to protect ‘their kids’. I’ve got 3 who are devoted companions of small kids.
My pictures were not mawkish. They demonstrated what millions of dogs are like around kids. Millions of people have grown up around dogs without ever being injured, or seeing an injury to a kid.
Some men are child molesters. That doesn’t mean we need to ban men from being around children.
Some dogs ARE dangerous. That is why my kids were all taught at an early age not to trust strange dogs.
But millions of dogs are NOT dangerous. My kids are safer with 200 lbs of furry protectors with them than they would be without them. Dogs are NOT wolves. Dogs have been bred for many thousands of years, and they are frequently very protective of small kids. My 3 dogs worship kids. That is a normal part of life for millions.
Humans are 5,000 times more dangerous than dogs.
I'm hoping everyone from Georgia isn't as ignorant as you are.
I do restrict my 75 lb Aussie mix around little kids. In his joy at seeing them, he can knock them over. And his desire to lick their faces CAN be annoying...
Mawkish, I know...
The trick is telling ahead of time when a dog is going to be agressive and when not.
Millions of people have grown up around dogs without ever being injured, or seeing an injury to a kid.
Millions more have been bitten and injured. What's your point? that some dogs don't bite? So what? Some do. The CDC estimtes that 4.6 million people are bitten annually - 800,000 seek medical treatment. There are FACTS.
Reminds me of my own childhood.
My gramma had so many 'hobo dogs' who wandered in and stayed it was crazy.
I spent many a summer day lying in the grass with them scattered all around, the lot of us just enjoying life.
Pretty smug and obnoxious comment.
But I’ll play, albeit briefly.
You all just aren’t worth the inordinate amount of wasted time any longer.
Don’t buy into your own hype too much, it can be misleading.
