    It could have been a pack of Rottweilers, a pack of Shepherds, a pack of any breed or breeds. What does it matter? Irresponsible owners inadvertantly have several dogs wandering the streets attacking ppl and dogs.

    My thoughts are with the man who risked life and limb to come to the aid of the woman and her dog. My thoughts are also with the woman who will be a mess mentally not to mention physically, and her Jack Russell. May they all recover as best they can.

    Oh wow, I should probably muzzle my dog then. She's a cross breed all the way, might snap and turn on someone any day now.

    I have a very large dog and i worry about unprovoked attacks when out walking, the last thing i want to see is my dog involved in a fight regardless of size.

    I would be too as mine, despite being under control would be seen as the bad one should an unrestrained small one mount an attack due to damage because of size that could occur.

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

    Reading the article and the comments posted has literally sickened me

    These dogs tried to tear another dog apart in an unprovoked attack - you don't think breeding is involved?

    I had a dog aggressive shep - he and my girl got out of the yard one day and chased an off lead swf. They caught it. This dog was smart and rolled on its back - my girl - and my aggro boy - simply sniffed him and came back to me,

    I was at fault for having the gate open for even a minute - however - the nature and breeding of the animals meant that their motives were not to kill the other dog but rather to "win" - which meant to catch and release

    Rufus will chase - undoubtably - he has something in him which tells him to chase anything that moves. As we know - Rufus doesn't have a nasty bone in his body - and his motive is NEVER to kill, only to play. It is why he is not allowed offlead in an unfenced area.

    There is NO ONE here who owns pit bulls - or amstaffs - who can deny there is an inherent amount of dog aggression in the breeds. Not every specimen - but many - because of what they were bred for - not necessary human aggression, but animal aggression. that these dogs also bit people indicates they were probably in drive and by that stage would have turned on anything.

    So yes - breed and breeding certainly play a role - I know lots of good responsible owners, including some here, who have had pit bulls that have attacked other dogs.

    Yes - judge the deed not the breed, but on the other hand, if the shoe fits...

    read the breed standard

    American Pit Bull Terrier - Breed Standard

    WHY are dogs who show dog aggression as part of their character bred from at all EVER? in any breed? why would a breed standard acknowledge that this is part of a breed?

    Breed nice dog friendly pit bulls and eventually you might change the way people view the breed- until then incidents like this will only fuel the fire.

    I never said that I didn't think it was in the breeding.

    Yes APBT were breed for aggression, I only wish I could say this is no longer the case *sigh*

    I have 2 APBT's and 1 is dog aggressive, one has had A LOT of socialisation the other has not. Not to say that I would ever leave them alone with another animal unsupervised...I WOULDN'T.

    I think it is the owners stupidity that has brought this attack on.

    Mully is dog aggressive (sometimes) and I know that, but this means that I need to adapt my life and take a very strong hold of the situations I put her in.

    I would never let my dogs get out of their yard...EVER!

    Personally I think it is purely the owners stupidity because...they SHOULD know and understand the breed standard of this breed and should do everything in their power to stop situations like this arising.

    That these dogs bit someone means that someone [albeit a very well-meaning passerby] stuck his hand in the wrong place while trying to break up a dog fight.
