I do know other breeds can be just as dangerous and believe people who dont train the dogs are the ones at fault.
I'm afraid I don't know the full story, such as was the girl being supervised? She may have been, but often this kind of thing happens when kids are left to play alone with dogs. And I believe any dog is capable of biting if they are provoked. Wouldn't you be cranky if someone poked you in the eye, or pulled your tail, etc?
I agree! These type of dogs are bread for a reason... To harm and kill. I think no amount of training will stop the natural instinct to maul. And it's a certain type of person that has these dogs, mainly because they are "tough". I know I may cop some grief over that statement.
I cannot comprehend what distress the family is going though now.
no i dont think pitbulls should be banned. ecery dog has the instinct to attack - every dog!
there are heaps of these dogs out there, i personallyknow 3 ppl with them, and the number of attacks is a small percentage.
i do believe however, that a temperment assessment should be done - but this goes for any dog.
if i was to ban 2 types of dogs for aggression, it would be poodles and chihuahua'a - especially chihuahua's - they are always snapping at ppl and biting people.
Although I think the 4 year olds death is so sad, and preventable, and it just breaks your heart to hear of things like that - not all pitbulls are responsible, so why should they all be held accountable? destroy that one dog. the one who attacked.
OOOHHH... INTERNET FIGHT. WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO? CAPS LOCK ME TOO DEATH?
(Noddy's not fat ffs!)
Forever in our hearts....
