Dogs are dogs. They are prey animals.
Seriesly, dudes. When you have a big party, lock the dog in a back bedroom.
A dog that is perfectly fine the other 364 days of the year will have a very hard time dealing with all of the strange people and things he will see at a big party. The risk of having him act out agressively is way, way up on these days.
Your guests will thank you.
Come on dog lovers! Let's hear how dogs are never to blame for the injuries they inflict. It was the owner. (Which technically speaking is correct. If the idiots didn't have a dog, then their child wouldn't have been killed.)
yeah, that would suck...
The one he bit is dead and the dog is going to be killed anyway.
What sense does the delay make at this point? Why not put him down right away?
Friends had a dog that was constantly killing neighbor pets, and they never seemed concerned having it around their baby.
They were lucky it never attacked a person, but I never understood it.
These threads used to be dominated by the dog apologists... did we shame them all away?
There needs to be heavy fines and jail time involved when someone’s dog seriously maims or kills another human being. They have pens for dogs like this...use them. I have neighbors who walk their rotties and pit bulls around a residential neighborhood with children present...I ask them if they are carrying liability insurance. Tick, tick, tick...
...so who would be liable for the baby’s death in this scenario? The grandmother for not securing her dog knowing a child was coming into the home? The parents for bringing their child into a home where the dog was present? There should be some jail time here...this child was killed by an ‘unsecured weapon’...
Often heard (especially dealing with a new baby and a family pet) about bringing the baby’s blanket so the dog can get used to the smell, attack the blanket and realize it’s no threat and ignore/accept the smell of the baby.
A little aggressive and bitey, and not into being petted, but a wonderful guard animal.
