some AB's attacked a baby, the mother stepped in and took the bites until the owner got them off, made the local paper but not the courier mail as far as i know. both dogs are now dead. injuries to the toddler are extensive as to the mother.
what is the trend, if there is one, i know since BSL breeders have been breeding pitts / amstaff into different coat colored dogs to make them not pitts. the owners all seem the same, want the most ferocious and biggest dogs they can get and nearly always they are running loose when the attacks occur.
i summarise thus;
dogs with big reps as mean/ irresponsible owners/owners low intelligence/no reason for dog other than mean rep and look tough.
