    Yes it is the owners fault. Yes the owner needs to never own another animal. However, this dog is a product of its breeding and environment and is not fit to be in society. Failing that the dog should be declared dangerous and kept behind a 6ft secure fence at all times - outside wearing a muzzle and on lead.

    I've posted here before about the neighbour who was walking her mini foxie and her granddaughter - neighbours dog got out the front door and tore her dog apart. It was the child wasn't hurt - though she did have to watch a dog tear another one apart.

    The dog has been declared dangerous - the dog you described would have killed a small dog from what you describe.

    Dangerous dogs do not have a place in our society - and we must differentiate that from reactive dogs because they are two different things.

    This is a good read
    aggression basics
    OK,without knowing much other than the first post here,I will agree with Occy at once.

    This type of dog ( I'm assuming - which is the dangerous part of the internet) is not a young dog and rehabilitation would be lengthy and there is a damned good chance that this dog will never be 'sociable'.

    So no,not a rehome.
    Definate wings.


    Now having said that,the internet is a world based on someone elses written word,perceptions and views can be manipulated and twisted,misconstrued and misunderstood for so many reasons and very often no reason at all.

    I would like to assess the dog.
    No matter what anyone says,in some cases ,breed does matter.
    So breed plays a part in this type of case( no more headlines would dandy thanks)
    Age of course.
    General all round nature in other aspects.

The dog needs to be professionally assessed as Anne has said. If it turns out he is dog aggresive, it can be managed by an owner (Provided the owner is obviously a responsible dog savvy one) and DA dogs can and have even been rehabilitated.

    Southern has said also, the dog was NEVER walked. Can you imagine how highly strung that dog must be living in those conditions ATM. Constantly full of energy and on edge i would imagine!

    Just out of curiosity, what breed is the dog that got out and attacked the Lab?
    Trust me Leo, it can be assertained in certain area's.
    Those reasons you just pointed out for not putting to sleep are also good reason for giving wings.

    The average person who will attend a shelter and up with this dog will NOT know what to do or how to rehabilitate it safely.
    It could very much end up a tragedy.

    I do agree some more would need to be assertained in most cases , but sometimes , cases such as this,th edanger far outweighs 'saving another one at all costs'

    Its bloody sad......really bloody sad and I often wish it was human that were in the rehoming/shelter position,but they arn't.

    once they have the taste for blood they have to go'.

    this seems to be a popular thought out there as I was told this as well in relation to Jarrah.

    I blame the owners, all fault lays at their feet, and yet the dog is the one who is going to pay. makes me furious. In cases like this the owners need to be educated on what they did wrong so it is not repeated. I take Jarrah to a local dog park every morning, and this week one of the ladies and her dog were attacked while out walking, and last week a man and his dog were attacked while out walking. Its time dog owners were held accountable for their dogs behaviour, and if the dog causes damage then the owners need to go to education classes on what it means to own a dog and what there responsibilities are.

    I hope the pooch and her owner are doing ok now and you are ok as well.

    What an awful situation. I feel for the dog so much.
    I have little to no respect for owners who choose to be reckless in the way they raise their animals.
    Sadly however, I dont know if that dog can be rehabilitated. It would need a very patient and loving home and it sounds like it has just been pushed away to be someone elses problem.
