I can not help but laugh at these blind dog lovers. A dog bit a 4 year old child and you guys are indifferent. I would love to see your reaction had an strange dog attacked your your child, sibling or family members. You guys are speaking of the bread of the dog but that is irrelevant since you do not know THIS dog that did the attacking.


I am with the granddad on this one.

Why wasn't the granddad watching the kid more carefully? And no where in the story does it say what the kid did to the dog.

Sure you could probably find stories of dogs going insane and running around biting people, but how many times does that happen? Nearly all of the time the dog gets pushed too far before it does something. For all you know the kid could have been beating the **** out of the dog with a baseball bat but you don't know that do you?

Yes the dog should have been on a leash when out in a very public area but the question still remains why didn't the grandfather stop her? Would you let your kid run upto a strangers dog or even a stray dog without carefully watching him/her?

If the dog owner stabbed the grandfather for attacking his dog, would it be justified?

That's the same logic as the grandfather used to attack the dog..

Stupid ****.

I like how whenever a city or state bans pitbulls because they have been breed to be naturally aggressive and have quite an extensive record to prove it. All these people come flying to the defense saying that its not possible for them to be born like that and has nothing to do with the breed. Then when a golden retriever bites someone those same people come to the defense saying that its not possible because they were breed to be calm and not aggressive towards humans. So basically you people are saying dogs can only be breed to be nice and not mean, or at least when it fits your argument.

A passion for dogs will do this to the most sane person, its rather sad really.

I like how you say "you people" like all dog lovers share the same opinion :rolleyes: Was it actually the same people who said that pitbulls can't be bred to be mean that also said golden retrieves are bred to be calm?

The man should be fined, it is not his place to stab the dog. I could see if the dog was attacking his grand daughter but it sounds like this was just a "revenge" stabbing. He should have contacted the Police or animal control, chances are the dog will be put to sleep so the stabbing was just cruel.

Edit - Also agree that the adult should not have let the child walk up to a dog without asking the owner first. Common sense.

Edit #2 - after reading the "breed" comments, all dogs can/will bite if provoked.

I'll trust a dog over a human almost any day.

After reading this, I actually have skipped over all of your posts.

Like I said, Im with the grandfather. Was the stabbing excessive? Might have been. A kick or a push would have been enough but you have to understand if the girl was attacked, the reaction of hate and anger was normal.

The owner should be fined.

100% against the grandfather.

Let a child in your care close enough to any unknown dog, you are at fault for what happens next.

I like dogs, I trust many dogs. I don't know anything about that dog other than it is an animal with the capability to either attack or misjudge it's friendliness.

Stabbing the dog is wholly out of order!

Awesome. I'd rather have those who aren't closed minded and know a thing about the world to read what I post. If you knew anything about dogs, you would understand their behaviors and actions, and be able to tell basically when a dog is scared, afraid, happy, or mad. All dogs basically show the same signs for the same emotions.
Understand your surroundings, and you will be less fearful of the world. Understand the world, and you can conquer anything.

Good, dog severely bit a child.
Encountered so many irresponsible dog owners in my last job, some are just delusional.

Not having grown up with dogs, and only having friends with well-trained dogs, has given me some bias here. If I'm honest I wouldn't care if dogs ceased to exist.

Lol how come? How many stories have you heard of dogs attacking other humans or dogs? Quite a few probably. Now compare that to the amount of stories you hear about humans attacking other animals or humans.

Just because humans have evolved more hasn't stopped some of us from acting way worse than animals.

Golden Retrievers are the nicest dogs , period. They are rated #1 for dogs that will not attack a human when provoked. Just look at any dog temperament charts and studies. http://www.dogbreeds...er-puppies.html I wouldn't be surprised if the little girl had done something to the dog to make him react as such. I have a golden, and I know not all dogs are the same, but retrievers are some of the nicest and gentlest dogs.

Oh please. No one would even say that if this was a pitbull, rotty, german shep or any other dog. It's the dog owners fault for not properly socializing the dog.

I'm with the Grandfather on this one.
