Thread: Born Bad or Bad Rap?

  1. #1

    Default Born Bad or Bad Rap?

    Yesterday there is a news where a 19yr old walking his dog at East Hills South Western of Sydney
    when 2 other dogs attacked his dog. Being the owner he tried to break the dogs from fighting and
    unfortunately he got bitten severely bad.

    Another news from News.com.au | News Online from Australia and the World | NewsComAu and I am not sure if this is the same news from yesterday, but read the article.

    Horrible story
    Any details on the dog getting walked? Was it injured?

    Unfortunately that's what happens when you get involved in a fight between powerful predator animals. This probably would not have happened if the owner of the 2 offending dogs had socialized them properly.

    The dog the guy was walking was a Stafford x as well. As far as I heard it was okay though.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    With all due respect, do you have any real knowledge about the steps taken by the AmStaff owner to socialise his two dogs? Are you just assuming because this incident happened that the owner had nothing to socialise his dogs? I have spent a lot of time reading 'Fatal Dog Attacks' by Karen Delise and I have tried to understand the individual circumstances involved in individual dog attacks; I think that it is a bit too simplistic to state
    This probably would not have happened if the owner of the 2 offending dogs had socialized them properly
    You really do not know the circumstances here, and to state that it is probably a socialisation problem without any evidence to support your view is not helpful.

    Perhaps the dogs had not been fed for 3 days; perhaps the dominant dog of the pair had a brain tumour; perhaps, perhaps.

    Hi Hyacinth,

    I've been hiding underneath a rock somewhere in Western Australia.

    I only saw this thread today, and I felt compelled to respond. The thing is, all dog incidents are individual and none of us were there, so how can any of us state categorically what happened?

    Cheers,

    ricey
