    No the damage would not be the same at all.

    My point is BREED should not even be considered when it comes to dogs attacking or biting kids, I mean an attack is an attack is just the same regardless if it came from a SWF or a huge breed.

    BUT I can not understand why this breeder will not even talk to them! Thats just rude!
    I guess I've missed something or else read the OP's post a bit differently. To me it sounded like the owners cslled the breeder to ask if she would take the dog back, and she said no because the dog is de-sexed. I didn't realise the breeder would not even talk to them?

    Yep. This is so true!! If any dog attacks a child it should be put down.. Its got nothing to do with the breed of dog.

    Like we all know.. Any breed of dog can attack a child

    I agree in principle. However, the reality is that dogs likes yours - and mine for that matter - have a reputation and in many cases deservedly so. A tyrannical chihuahua is less likely to kill someone than a shep that has never been properly handled.

    This dog has not only bitten the child, it showed agression prior to that bite.

    Of course it wouldn't...the child would more than likely not have a face left!

    I might have read it wrong but the idea I got was that the breeder said they wouldnt take the dog back, wich is a reasonable thing to say, but that they also wouldnt help in any other way?
    I dont know

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!
    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    Mastiff, Great Dane, Wolfhound, Saint Bernard... They would do more damage than a APBT, AST, SBT etc wouldn't they?

    Bigger the mouth the more damage there would be. Of course a bull breed is going to do more damage than a Beagle, but my response is still the same.

    TBH I am a little surprised that the OP hasn't called in a behaviorist before now.

    There are cases of toy breeds killing their owners - adults as well!
