    Breed specific legislation failing globally - Charlotte Animal Rescue | Examiner.com

    Italy banned 92 breeds before they gave up and decided to hold the owners responsible for the actions of their dogs. It's only Victoria that are being batshit about this. NSW, and QLD have implemented tougher laws on the owners. And SA is waffling as usual - but hopefully they're leaning towards holding the owners responsible.

    We had our neighbour tell us that our Huskies should be put on the dangerous/vicious breeds list, because he refused to fix a hole in the fence, that we were not aware of at the time as it was behind bushy trees and quite well hidden (we are on a rental property and he refused to co-operate with the landlord or the real estate, we ended up fixing the fence ourselves after the incident). So in turn one of ours got through and killed one of his 26 free roaming chickens that he refuses to put in pens. He accused us of owning a dangerous dog, and his words were "if it could do that to a chicken what do you think it could do to a child or another dog? if one of your dogs comes on my property again i will get rid of those dangerous mutts you call pets myself" i told him to stick it where the sun don't shine (not that nicely, and in more detail) before slamming the door on his face and that if he wants to know how our dogs are with children and other dogs then he can ask our friends who have children and dogs who play with our dogs on a regular basis, last time i checked they were still alive and injury free.

    After that we fixed the fence and made it houdini proof, anything that came in certainly wasn't getting out and visa versa and we did extensinve training to make sure it never happened again, we also went and apologised to the owner of the chicken repeatedly and offered to replace it or give him the money for it (apparently it was some designer that chicken he showed, so it was a bit more costly then we thought). People can be so close minded.

    It is very sad for the family that lost their pup and i feel for them, it is very unfortunate, and no one should have to have it happen to them but to then call the breed vicious is a bit much.

    I'm sorry I will end my rant now, it might not have much to do with the topic, the headline just made me angry.

    I don't think the dog attack statistics are accurate to ban any breed. I've seen the links that show how even purebreed dog breeds can resemble pitbulls.
    When Kimba was attacked by a Maltese terrier I reported it yet felt like an idiot for doing it. My 30kg staffy mix was attacked by a cotton ball with teeth...
    How many small breed attacks are not reported because of embarrassment? I understand the bigger ones can do the most damage but I think every attack should be reported.

    Dog Attack Reporting - Department of Local Government

    NSW used to put up the bite report stats. Maybe budget cuts have killed it off.

    I hope the owner of the Dalmation read that article and decided to fess up. Doubt it though. If he did not stick around and volunteer his help at the time then chances are he is a scum bag and is laughing his head off.

    Maybe the actual facts aren't convenient for those who are making the legislation.

    sad for the kids.... but as always there are 2 sides to every story.... was the little dog on a leash? did the little dog "challange" the dalmations before backing down?

    i feel bad for the family involved though....

    It frustrates me to no end, when are people going to remember that WE, THE HUMANS domesticated these animals? Yet some humans don't train or be responsible for the animals we domesticated...... Without training they are just animals. Even domesticated animals run in packs.
    No one loves you like your dog does.

    I don't see why everyone is so angry - this particular Dalmatian is vicious. The injuries it caused to the little dog are extremely severe, it was not on lead and went in for the kill. All the article mentioned was that the dogs are to be on leash, nothing else. Frankly the owner deserves and massive fine and a dog that has now killed another dog, well one place for that animal.

    Dogs should not kill other dogs. That is a massive temperament fault.
