Hi Guys

Yet another viscous attack by some violent dogs in Taneatua

And some silly moo from the SPCA comes on the radio and says its not just Pit Bulls and Staffy crosses that attack, Jack Russells are also high up on the list.

My solution is put down every pit bull and staffy cross. (these latest 2 were not registered so what did that stupid dog chipping law achieve ?

Can someone ask that silly women how many people have been severely injured by a Jack Russell ?

The thing with Pit bulls etc is that it is in their breed to bite and not let go. You need to be pretty strong to get one off you.

My solution is everyone should stop blaming the f**king dogs and take some responsibility.

Dogs need a reason to bite. They will usually only bite when provoked. And if they are walking round biting people out of the blue then someone/something has seriously screwed them up.

However you must not also forget that as with humans any animals can also have bad bones. However in most cases it's always the owners. Like that bloody mongrel who fed 5 live kittens to his dog.

Shoot the dogs send the owner to prison and to pay compo to victim when they get out.

That micro chipping of all dogs that the Greens/Labour brought in to control dangerous dogs is still working as well as it ever will. Stupid politicians.

Is there any other kind?

Have got two well behaved dogs and after decades of involvement the only true attack was a serious hand bite on SWMBO (silly dog) by a Jack Russell, so the SPCA probably have it right.
Size doesn't matter?

Jack Russels are pretty damn nippy. Don't really like them either. Size does matter in many cases....you won't find chihuahuas becoming killers anytime soon!

My next door neighbour breeds staffordshire terrier crosses, they are lovely dogs, always keen to give me a lick and ge a scratch by poking their heads through the fence when I hang out the washing.

It is all about how a dog is raised and how it is treated, any dog can be vicious or loving regardless of the breed

Are the viscous dogs a bit slower than vicious dogs?

You cant trust any dog as far as you can kick them.
They just snap just like grumpy humans.
Give the lady with the unregistered attack dogs a year in prison and see if she is so keen on dog ownership when she comes out of the slammer.

Yes.
You're going to be silly about it you'd ban any animal with pointy teeth.
A small nasty dog isn't going to harm you in a serious way.

Saw that weirdo on the news last night. And his weirdo Sister telling everyone that it was bad judgement and a silly mistake.

Oh yeah, and would it be bad judgement and a silly mistake if I fed her to a Tiger? I didn't think so...

What a load of bull. How many of our forum readers would be able to recognise a pit bull? :(

http://www.pitbullsontheweb.com/petbull/findpit.html

The first report I saw of this attack didn't state the dogs' breed. The second, from the NZ Herald, quoted Whakatane District Council as saying the two were a pitbull and a pitbull-mastiff cross. The third said they were a pitbull and a Staffordshire bull terrier. I don't know what the fourth report will say, but I'll update this blog if I see it. [UPDATE: at 4pm Whakatane District Council describes both dogs as "pitbull-bulldog cross-breeds". That's four distinct breeds implicated so far. Does anyone know what they're talking about?

But then there's another factor, the journalistic gravitational pull of certain breed names. Pitbull. Bullmastiff. Rottweiler. Say the name on a TV report or in a newspaper story and it's like hearing a great menacing minor-key chord heralding the entrance of the villain. "Everyone knows they're violent." "They're a brutal breed." "You can tell by looking at them."

The last two paragraphs are from an article by Nick Barnett writing in the Dominion Post. Here's the link to the full article:

http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/blogs/four-legs-good/3259434/The-demonising-of-dogs

The thing with any dog is that the capability to bite and inflict injury lies only just below the surface, and it is only because the dog chooses not to do so that bites are more common than they are. In this country, bites are most often inflicted by the family pet, even the quintessential lovable and photogenic Labrador. But not newsworthy.

So let's stop giving dogs a bad rap and target the real offenders - those who won't raise gentle dogs. They won't love the gentleness of a mastiff or a Staffy. Whatever breed or mix of dog they get hold of, it'll be trained to the maximum of the aggression in its nature. Perhaps it'll be bred with others. It won't go to puppy preschool, it won't go to obedience classes, it won't be carefully socialised, it probably won't be neutered.

I disagree target both, shoot any dog (dont waste money on euthanasia drug) that shows any hint of attacking and punish severely the owner as well. Funny how My Dad can shoot any Dog he sees on the farm and I cant in Glen Eden. In the usa the owner would get their ass sued, maybe we should be allowed to sue for dog attacks here.

How come the Whakatane District council knew the dogs and said they were good with children. But let the owner get away with registering them ?

Councils should pick up every unregistered dog and give the owner 1 week to pay the missing registration and the next years in advance, if they don't then put the dog down.

That would soon solve the problem.
