    I think it's a sad battle.

    Clea, I do agree with you. Im not justifying the attack - but think about it, everyone. The dog is in a new place, with new people, and one of those people is teasing it with a toy. If I were in the dogs shoes I would be very wary and possibly scared.
    And the parents - why would they leave their 6- and 4- year old children unsupervised with a dog they've had for one hour?

    Was it the dogs fault? The kids fault?
    In my opinion, it was the parents fault. Why, after just getting a dog with a history of the unknown and likely insecure and scared, leave their kids alone, unsupervised with the dog playing with toys?
    But either way. The dog has been put down, either because of aggressiveness or unlucky circumstances and the kids are scarred and may have an unfortunate complex towards dogs and puppies.

    What a sad situation for all. Unfortunately the after-affects of a tragedy like this often have a ripple effect on society. Let's hope not, anyway.

    Only two words come to mind to sum this up: Ignorance Kills.

    Even the most ballanced and reliable dog can cause damage like this. Unintentionally. As Claesanta already said - it is very likely that dog just jumped and wanted a toy. Kids are small, fragile and vulnerable. When I play with my rottie, she's like an armoured vehicle, focused on a toy, stick, ball. She just goes... and you really have to be carefull. I have two nieces, and there is no efin way I would live them alone with any of my dogs alone. This boy's face looks really bad, but this face is not mauled. If he was mauled he wouldn't have a face at all, lets face it - it was staffie, not a chihuahua.
    Respect and you shall be respected. Animal is always right.

    Very sad and very reckless and stupid of the parents.

    There is a strong need for animal education in this country, going out and getting a dog and then not having a damm clue what to do with it is dangerous and sad.

    I also cringe when I see an article on a staffy attack. I have a staffy x and I am scared about the future for her

    How stupid are some parents? Poor little staffy RIP! It could have been a lap dog and would have done the same thing. So many kids have incidents with dogs because of stupid parents. So many kids drown in back yard pools because of stupid parents. Whatever happened to parental supervision? I think there should be some type of licencing for people to be allowed to have children. The way society is going 50% should never ever been allowed to have children or dogs for that matter!
    P.S. Am not trying to offend anyone, but cannot believe the way of the world these days!

    I feel sorry for the dog - not sure it deserved what it got.

    I feel sorry for the kids - they have two idiots for parents.

    And I feel sorry for dog owners everywhere - who are threatened by sensastionalist crap like this. I hope newspapers of this standard put themselves out of business.
