I'm not sure if it was here where we were discussing it, but no one could understand why the baby wasn't crying. Is this the same story?<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Martina Jennings, 23, took her son to a hospital Friday because his foot was bleeding and told authorities she saw blood on the dog's face and chest, Lucas County Dog Warden Tom Skeldon said. The foot was amputated.</div>

He wasn't crying because he couldn't feel it.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

The boy has no feeling below the waist because of spina bifida, so he did not know the dog was biting him, Skeldon said. Spina bifida is a defect that occurs when the backbone and spinal cord do not close before birth</div>
</div>
<br><br><br>
This looks like a different story. Very sad.<br><br><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

The black-and-white puppy was destroyed. Skeldon said he questioned the puppy's ability to cause so much damage because its teeth weren't mature.</div>
</div>
<br>
So, you question if it was even the dog...but still KILL him!?

Do you think it's a different story? I remember discussing it here, and everyone thought the parents were on drugs. Then they said it might have been the family's ferret who did it.

I volunteer at a pound, and I don't care how sweet pitt owners say their little doggies are, they should be outlawed, they are dangerous animals.

I have a Siberian Husky, and they are also perceived as a dangerous breed. My baby is the sweetest thing ever, but I still supervise her closely around small children. It is my responsibility as her owner.<br><br>
IMO, how a pitt turns out depends on the owner.

If you volunteer at a pound, there's a good chance you're seeing pits raised and trained to fight. Of course a pound atmosphere will make a dog like that go nuts.<br><br><br><br>
ETA: That's not the same story. The other one involved a baby. This kid was 4. It seems odd to me too that puppy teeth could cause such an injury.

Yeah, I rescued a Siberian Husky from the pound because it was going to be killed, I completely changed the dog working with it every single day through years of training.<br><br><br><br>
Pitts are there own thing, the room that houses dogs at the pound that have bit people is always filled almost entirely with Pitts, I will never trust them. My friend who rescues animals had one that she loved dearly and she treated it with the very much respect, until one day out of nowhere it bit a child. Sorry, but I've had a lot of experience with them, and I'm never going to change my mind.

It's not odd to me. My maltese chewed the hell out of some of my furniture when she was a teeny puppy.

Good point. I've seen puppies do amazing things to wood furniture.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

It's highly unlikely the dog bit "out of nowhere." You have to be very careful with rescues whose past histories you don't know and small kids. Most times when a dog bites a kid, the kid did something to bring it on, oftentimes without realizing it. Way too many parents don't teach their kids how to behave around dogs.<br><br><br><br>
There's no breed of dog I don't trust. There are lots of dog owners I don't trust, however.

That's so true. My friends have the sweetest little dog that's starting to turn aggressive to children simply because every child that's come near it has been abusive. These kids torment animals, and the parents just give a bored "Stop it," until the dog finally growls and they're suddenly "You have a dangerous dog! Keep it away from my baby!"

Yeah, I'll never trust pitt bulls, and I don't suggest to anyone to buy or even rescue one. They are bred to be aggressive, if you don't want to believe my stories or doubt what I'm saying I really don't care, I've been around rescue dogs of every variety and put in my dues, like I said I will never trust pitts, ever. Actually come to think of it, that is the only breed I will never trust, I've seen and heard too much in my life, and if I thought you wouldn't automatically refute everything I had to say I would put in the effort to tell you about it, but what would be the point seeing as you seem to know so much.

Yeah, I never said that, I'm talking about "Pitts" and them alone.

So have I. I also have several friends that work/worked in vet clinics and shelters. And they've told me pitties are not one of the breeds most likely to bite when they're treating it.<br><br><br><br>
I'm also not trying to convince you of anything. I can agree to disagree with you as your mind is made up. I'm just trying to keep anyone else who might happen by this thread from automatically believing that pitbulls = evil because you said so.

My nephew has a boston terrier that he thinks the world of and for a while he wouldn't stop hugging it so hard that he actually made it yelp. My sister would give him that bored "stop it, he doesn't like that" but never make him stop. One day the dog nipped him, and she got all mad at the dog because "Robby didn't mean to hurt him, he just over-loves." I told her that might be true, but the dog doesn't realize that! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wall.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":wall:"><br><br><br><br>
My other nephew also tends to get a little over-excited with his German shepherd. Two days after my sister got the dog, who was 18 months old then, not a small puppy, she was letting the kids take bones from it and everything. Of course I told them what a bad idea that was, especially when the dog barely knew them yet, but all I got was a "he won't hurt them." And you know that, how?<br><br><br><br>
These boys are almost 10 and nearly 11 now, definitely old enough to know how to interact appropriately with a dog.<br><br><br><br>
They come to my house and are totally different, and calmer, around my 4 dogs. I wonder why that is?

Well, like it or not people have been breeding them to be aggressive, more and more so as of late. It's a fact, they are unpredictable. If you take a chance on one, there is no way of telling what that dogs genes are and how it was bred. It's sad, because the breed wasn't always that way, but it is now.

A decade or two ago, that was said about German shepherds and Dobermans. Now it's rotties and pits.<br><br><br><br>
And don't forget chows and akitas either. Two more breeds that belong on the "never trust" list. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"><br><br><br><br>
Same *incorrect* reasoning, just a different breed for each decade or so.<br><br><br><br>
I've had several dogs, all types of breeds. The one most likely to bite a human was the 6-pound yorkie. Especially a kid. That dog hated most kids.

Nope, just Pitts actually.<br><br><br><br>
You must be privvy to the fact many people breed Pitts so they will fight each other, no? Sure you can argue they do this with other breeds, but anyone involved in animal rescue knows this happens primarily with Pitts and this has caused the breed to turn very aggressive.

Accually, its how people raise them. They are not dangerous unless they are bred or taught to be. It's not...you know what I have to stop this post now you ar enot worth me getting banned from VB for.
