    Exactly Pugger.
    I don't care that they're Pit Bulls.
    I don't care if they were my beloved Kelpie.
    The fact is that they were out wandering. People know if their dogs are aggressive. These owners would have known these dogs weren't canine socialised. These things don't just 'happen'.
    I agree Occy, you have to have a licence to own more that 4 dogs. Someone who puts enough effort into a licence, puts enough effort into the training of their dog. Obviously, these arn't amazingly(is that a word) brought up dogs. I would not be surpised if they were being used for breeding.
    Education not Legislation

    Quite a pathetic response, how do you expect to gain any creditbility when you are making this out to be a crossbreed thing? Irresponsible breeding, yes

    OF COURSE the owners are at fault! The breeding is VERY much at fault too!!!
    I dont agree with this sorry.

    I believe entire that it is the owners being irresponsible......but yet again the poor animals will be punished for the humans actions

    As an owner of 2 small dogs this is one of my biggest fears. I live near the area where a few months ago there was that attack on the 2 little malteses. I really want to stress that I have nothing against staffy's, rotties, etc or any big dogs, but I live in an area where there are a lot of these large breed dogs (although I guess most breeds are large compared to mine!) and most of them are owned by people who want to look *tough* (aka idiots).

    About a month ago my husband and I took our dogs to a local park for a walk - a park filled with people, little kids, other dogs, etc, and there were 2 boys (prob about 19yo) walking 2 dogs. I'm not sure what the were, Shepard x with god knows what but they were huge. Anyway, these 2 dogs spotted me with my little girl and started lunging at her - no growling or barking, just really quiet, scary aggression. The 2 boys had to straddle the dogs to control them - and all they did was laugh. I could've punched them.

    I just really hate so much irresponsible owners and the perceived difference with smaller breeds being "cute" when it happens. If I had a small dog and went walking with it, I would be so worried about unprovoked attacks. I know my mother was when walking her terrier but thankfully this problem did not occur much in her area. She would have inserted herself to save him and she was late 70s in age.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Di, I'm the same as your mum (not the age though!) - I'd throw myself in front of my dogs any day. They mean to world to me, I'm respobsible for them and it's my job to protect them.

    My parents were walking their current dog a few weeks ago, a lovely, quiet little malt x lhasa apso, stopped to say hello to some people they knew who were also out walking the dogs - beagles, i believe -when one of the other dogs slipped their collar and attacked Lucy. And the owners didn't even so much as say sorry! Poor Lucy is a quivering mess on her walks now

    The irresponsibility is what gets me - I believe if you're a responsible owner and you love your dog and spend alot of time with it, then you should know your dog and how it behaves with other dogs and people. I know how my 2 behave around other dogs and people and I adjust my behaviour in certain situation accordingly because it's up to me as the owner to be in control!
