    How horrible Poor little boy!

    I think the issue stands with dero 'tough' people wanting these 'tough' looking/acting dogs, not really caring about them, not giving them proper training, and in some instances encouraging aggressive behaviour. I know that all dogs are capable of hurting/killing a person, especially a baby or toddler, but a staffy, mastiff, rotti etc is obviously going to look a lot more intimidating and tough than a maltese, and can do a lot more damage in a shorter time frame and obviously is a lot harder to 'remove' from a situation like this.

    I love all these breeds and people on this forum clearly care for their dogs but it's not necessarily the case for the rest of the public. At our local park, the only dogs I've ever had trouble with are staffies, mastiff crosses and rottis... but the one common factor is every owner has been some idiotic person, covered in tattoos and piercings (trying not to be stereotypical but..), and has just come across as someone who thinks they're 'big and tough'... unfortunately these lovely, sweet breeds tend to attract the most horrible of people... the other day a man came into the park with his American bulldog, he left him on the leash and he would try and attack every dog that came near him, the man actually said to me "I don't know why he's so aggressive! He's the best dog ever when we're out pigging"... idiots who train their dogs for these 'sports' but then expect them to be regular, friendly, socialised animals....

    I cant believe this is the first ive heard of this attack?
    I think it is so tragic that a Deonn lost his life so horrifically too.

    I really dont hear much about aggression from bull mastiff breed forum. So i think it is unjust to say these dogs are aggressive or dangerous.

    I do think it is negligent, to keep a toddler and a pigger unsupervised. But it can happen so fast.
    I wonder if the pig was also in the freezer outside?
    Or its food?

    A comment was being shared from the owner's FB page that was along the lines of - someone telling him the dog would get a girl before him. And a joke back from the owner to the effect of yeah, if he doesn't eat her again like last time - lol!

    Don't know if it was legit or not...

    The worst dogs when I'm out walking or our local park.. are the labs and lab x poodles. It's a classic case of herding dog (and owner) do not like in your face wet muddy slobbery jumping on you rude dogs. And the owners are usually completely clueless about where their dogs are.

    One time I caught a golden retriever who was just wandering around and hanging out with any other dog on the park and the owners nowhere to be seen. I caught it and put it on lead (which my dog did not like very much) and went around asking people if they knew whose dog it was. Eventually some kids came over and said it was their dog. So I handed them the dog and a bag of its crap and said - you need to be with your dog...

    Next time I saw that GR, it was with an adult.
