Hi, theres a story of a little boy getting attacked by 4 mastiffs on the news here. I think that had the lady that owned the dogs been watching them it wouldnt have happened. Yes, the boy shouldnt have jumped her fence, but he didnt desearve to be mauled for retreiving his ball Not to mention now theres a good chance the dogs will be euthanized, when they certainly did nothing wrong. I always supervise my pit bull when he is outside to avoid incidents like this, because with discriminated breeds, any incident of biting, justified or not especially biting a child can be used against the breed. And i know there are kids in my neighborhood and that occasionally kids do jump fences.I highly doubt my dog would bite someone but better safe than sorry. Some lady (who owns a rottweiler and should at least see my point if not agree) attacked my comment saying that it is rediculous for me to expect other dog owners to watch their dogs outside. Now, i am a full time mother of a toddler, and i have plenty of time to put in this little extra effort. My extra effort ensures no child or person will be attacked by my dog and therefor my dog will never get quarantined and euthanized. I do this more for my dogs safety than other peoples safety and also because no matter how nice your dog is, if it ever bites a kid for any reason it makes idiots think that breed is vicious. I beleive owners of these breeds should go the extra mile for the good of the breeds. I think i should be commended for being a really good owner but instead im being skewered. I dont get this, opinions.....please And i dont think she should have been watching her dogs for the boys sake, thats his parents job, but she should have for her dogs sake, they wouldnt be seized by animal control right now if she would have.
