    You guys are incredible, seems logical that the dog was a staffordshire terrier as they described it, do you have proof otherwise?
    You go on to defend it as a scrap and it's ok the poodle wasn't hurt so it's all good. Well the poodle owner didn't take thier kids and dog to the park to experience a scrap or be held in water at least it didn't mention that either in the article .
    Kiera you even lay some of the blame on the poodle for eyeballing it???
    good luck convincing people you have an open mind

    We were at the off-leash park last year and I let my poodle off, he trotted over to another dog to say hello and all of a sudden the other dog started attacking.
    There was no physical damage, just a lot of noise, the owner of the dog (I'm too scared to say what breed) grabbed her dog and just gave me the dirtiest look like it was all my fault my poodle walked up to her dog! I left the park straight away and she just let go of her dog again

    I doubt regardless of the injuries that this dog will ever be the same again.

    Being a person who has owned both very large and very small dogs I understand that little dogs reactions are often to preserve their safety.

    A very large dog, even a friendly one charging up to a little dog, even if it's intentions are good are going to illicit a reaction from the little dog, some big dogs will heed the warning and back off and some little dogs that have been raised with big dogs understand that to get the best reaction from the big dog they need to stand still and ignore it.

    This is why I think all dogs in public places should be on lead. I only allow my dogs to socialise off lead with dogs I know & who they know and have met.

    My mothers Chi comes here when she goes on holidays, he's used to big dogs, but he still stands his ground with them all for the first day or so, so that they don't play rough with him. If he engages with them then the young ones forget his size and play with him as though he was of equal size.

    I hope these people can relax enough to get their dog past this, but it won't be an easy task for them.

    The dog was not actually described in the article, why don't you provide proof the dog WAS a Staffy? It is all hearsay. Better to ignore the breed of dog and focus on the attack instead, it matters not whether it was a Staffy, a Bullmastiff or any other breed.

    And the reason I bolded the word "possibly" was to stop comments like yours above.
    I said POSSIBLY not IT MUST HAVE!
    Like I said 3 sides to every story.

    I also said it was NOT ok and that the owner should definitely NOT be letting his dog off leash again and that the owner should now persue further training with his dog.

    I only pointed out the dog was not injured because they used the word MAUL in the story. I, as a person who has had someone in my family actually MAULED by a dog find the use of that word offensive when the dog was not physically injured.

    Do not turn my posts around to try and make me the bad guy.

    I have no doubt the dog will be affected mentally also.

    My Pitbull X was attacked in a dog park by a Spoodle which should never have been in the park because it was fear aggressive. My dog hasn't been the same since and gets nervy around fearful dogs, I am now doing a lot of work to change that.

    It doesn't matter whether it was a Staffy or a Spoodle same effect. In the end the dog is physically unharmed and as such was not mauled. I certinaly am not going around telling people my dog was mauled by a Spoodle.

    And you know this how? Blame the victim?

    Yeah must have been the poodles fault. It must have run up to the Staffy and jammed itself in a staffies mouth. Did I hear blame the victim again?

    3 sides to every story, yours, theirs and the truth.
    I think picking up the Staffie and running off looks pretty guilty don't you?

    Why, doesn't it meet your definition? Bet it does the kids. Wasn't the poodle in enough pieces for you? "It's was a bitsa, there was bits of it all over the place'.

    Clearly then your response was "possibly" wrong Kiera. I agree 100% with Clubsprint you have so blamed the victim on this one. I don't need to twist your posts you have made it quite clear now how your take on things is.

    They aren't exactly going to stick around and have a chat are they. They would want to remove the animal from the situation.

    How could you tell this? Did you see the Poodle after Clubsprint?

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Clubsprint all the questions you asked me I have already answered in a previous post. Please refer to that post so I don't have to repeat myself.

    I was not blaming the victims, I was suggesting POSSIBLE scenarios.

    Jeez get off your high horses.

    Yeh that's a good excuse, I prefer making a getaway before authorities are involved.

    Maybe you should read the context this statement was written in, I understood the meaning.
    Sorry girls you cannot be serious in your discussion on this.
    If this had been a Neapolitan mastiff I would have been devastated and wanted the owner to hang around and face authorities, maybe preventing a repeat. Certainly wouldn't have gone the victim and blamed them
