    Bought a jeep
    I have a maltese shi-tzu (a white mop.) Cute, fluffy and adorable. However try to put on his winter jumper (I have him clipped and he shakes with the cold) or put on his walking harness and your will cop a bite from a angry dog. A while back he had a cut on his paw and the vet said to change the dressing daily - yer right! Soon as he saw me or my sons with the bandages he would start to snarl.

    The next clipping/bath is going to be interesting with the groomer as he has nipped him twice when being picked up to be placed in the bathing area, last time he had to muzzle him first, but now he knows he is going to be muzzled I guess he will react.

    He is placid and fun until you do something he doesn't like.

    Next time I will buy a larger less agressive dog.

    Media thrives on hatred and despair. Time to turn off the tv.

    Exactly. This is exactly what annoys me so much.

    Some mop acts agressive towards someone or another dog and it's "cute" and everyone has a good laugh. But then you have a dog that actually looks like a dog display the exact same behaviour and all of a sudden its all a big fuss.

    Double standards much?

    I realise that it should be the owners responsibility when it comes to making sure the dog doesnt attack, but what we have to remember is that the rotties, pitbulls, ect were bred to kill. If these dogs are bred to attack pigs or whatever, what chance does a small kid have? IMO i dont care how these dogs are bought up, they will always have that instinct in them...

    Double standards! I've never seen a child rag dolled by a toy poodle, have you?

    Grenan why wasn't your dog muzzled, what if it had gotten away from you?
    And yes the woman in question was at parts fault but doesn't excuse your dogs actions.

    It's not the point I was making the point is the chance I'd it happening, as in the power of one animal compared to another a small adult may not stand a chance against a large dog so what would a child do?

    So you're point was BIG dogs are dangerous because they have the potential to inflict more damage IF something goes wrong?

    And therefore people shouldn't have big dogs?

    Anyways its pointless discussing this topic with large/agressive dog owners as they can't see the forest for the trees! Don't know why I bothered. Good luck with your issues.

    I don't have any issues other than stupid knee jerk policies and situations where innocent animals are executed for the stupidity of both their owners and the general population.


    Cool cool. So in that case when are you selling you clubby and getting a smart car or a bicycle even?

    Your car, being alot bigger than other cars, has the potential to do alot more damage if something goes wrong and therefore people should not be allowed to own such cars.

    the difference being, v8's aren't designed to kill people, that was a ridiculous comment....

    Pitbulls are not designed to kill people...

    They were bread to fight other dogs.

    People who train them to be aggressive should be held accountable.

    ########s who try and touch peoples dogs and get bitten should cop it sweet and learn a lesson...

    All dogs have that in them. All dogs have been in some way been bred from hunting traditions. Hell most animals have that instinct.

    Umm what?

    I had my dog on a strong, tight leash (not one of those shitty single collar leashes, a body harness leash). Little yappy mut comes up to me, without a leash, with several warnings to the other owner, hell my dog was even hiding behind me. If the other owner fails to heed the warnings, thats not my problem. Next till Ill just ####ing pick up the ball of fluff and drop kick it.

    I accept that yes, if my dog was freely roaming around and did it, different story and that would be my fault. However I know a dog can just appear from nowhere and Im not a dumbarse owner.

    ? I agree though that the owners should be held responsible. Plenty of tossers make a point of making their dogs vicious and brag how tough it is.

    Me too. cant stand the thing. Its fine with me but due to its pack mentality it cant be trusted not to nip smaller kids so it gets locked away. I am not a dog person but if I have to have one my ruling is that I would not have any animal I couldn't kill with my bare hands if I had to. Many a face has been ripped off or worse by a dog that "doesn't bite".

    spot on, so what chance does a small child have against them?

    Who is leaving their small child with them? Young children are curious, they will pull, poke and touch everything. Any child should be monitored near ANY dog. Pull its ears, its going to turn around and tell you to #### off.

    Dogs, the scapegoats for **** parents and **** owners.
