YOU may have not met a dog YOU didn't like, but that is hardly evidence that there ARE NO bad dogs. As for me in the situation I commented on? The pit bull that attacked the 10 year old Black Lab (not my dog) was off leash in a neighborhood park with a leash law in force - the young woman who was there with the dog obviously didn't know how to control the dog, and should NOT have had it off leash. This pit bull engaged in a completely unprovoked attack against the Lab, taking her to the ground with it's mouth on the Lab's throat. There were minor puntures, but only because the Lab went completely docile while the Lab's owner stuck a stick down the pit bull's throat until it released her dog.
This was an incident I witnessed. There are untold numbers of incidents of unprovoked dog attacks against people and pets that I've read online and in the paper. You cannot tell me that these incidents are only due to the lack of knowledge about the dogs that attacked by those who have been injured or killed by them. That is simply BS.
Agreed. Animals are not machines controlled only by who handles them. They are autonomous and are completely capable of acting on their own.
I don’t believe I said there were no bad dogs. That is fanciful and foolish.
I’m sorry about your experience. I’ve worked with dogs most of my life, and I was bitten once when I was three. That didn’t stop me from loving dogs and having them around me.
