    Lightbulb Another Dog Attack -border Collie X

    today - front page of my paper:
    Cousin the hero of dog attack 11-year-old Kurt tackles border collie to the ground - Local News - News - Arts, Culture & Entertainment - The Examiner Newspaper

    wonder what it was crossed with... (out of interest - BC are my fave breed =)
    anyway, they should control their dog around other ppls kids, i would never let my dog around kids uncontrolled if i couldn't be sure how he would act...hmmm this is an interesting one.
    but it has a good point towards the end x

    sorry if the link doesnt work, i'll test it now. i had to type it out .. cant figure out if my dsi will copy n paste
    EDIT: it works! x

    xxxxxx

    There are rogue, untrained dogs in any breed as well as irresponsible owners with any breed. (have not looked at the article, just my opinion) as well as neglectful parents.

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

    hmmm.. a working dog kept in a backyard - perhaps he was just trying to herd the noisy children?

    Any working dog not just nipping but attacking sheep or cattle is put down if other training methods fail as they are dangerous and become killing machines.

    We had Rufus running around with a friends kids - one was a small kid of 4 - and these friends' dogs. I warned the parents and kids that Rufus chases and they were told to leave him alone. There were no incidents and we were constantly watching them from the veranda. It is not that hard to socialise and supervise - it really isn't.

    so true... we keep Boss away from livestock... he doesnt like them that much.. also he wear a muzzle when around sheep.

    There is this whole perception in society that pitbulls, dobermans and rottweilers are the only bad dogs, and everyone I have spoken to and told it was a border collie cross has just been shocked," he said.


    "Every dog is potentially dangerous - it just depends on how they are brought up."


    Tristan said he would probably be able to play with dogs again, but would be a little nervous initially.



    im glad the person who wrote the article stated this..

    Most of the severely fear aggressive dogs I know are border collies. Not to say all BC are fear aggressive - I just seem to meet those at a higher rate than other breeds.

    BCx - mostly the x is kelpie (high jumping opportunists) - but not always.

    Again 11 yo and 8 yo boys on their own with a dog that is not familiar with them. Asking for trouble.

    I've been attacked by boys that age with toy swords. They've got no clue about the consequences of their actions, and their mothers are often completely frazzled. No dog should be left on their own with monsters like that. I think the "family friend" should be banned from owning dogs, given this happened at the boys' home not the dog's home.
