Re: liverpool dog attack

The two women who owned the dog responsible lived next door, and have been arrested for Manslaughter.

My guess is possibly that these women knew the dog was aggressive - perhaps there had been incidents before - and failed to ensure the dog was secured safely. That would be enough for a manslaughter charge on the grounds of gross negligence.

Here we go again, I'm starting to dislike these dogs more and more.

The breed of dog has not been confirmed but nearby residents said it looked like a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Oh yes, because the general public have always been right in the past I remember the one where the neighbours all said it was a Pit Bull, and it ended up being a Mastiff!

It may very well be a bull breed, but to state such things BEFORE it has even been confirmed is IMO, not right. But then, you always have come across very anti-bull breed so your post doesn't surprise me

I just hope and pray it isn't a bull breed so it doesn't give people like you even more ammunition!

Re: liverpool dog attack

Doesn't much matter what breed it was. It will give every dog a bad name.

No dog should be allowed to be capable of killing a human, or another dog for that matter.

Hope they very publicly through the book at those two women, and that they get locked up for a very long time. Only this way can it be brought home to people that the wrong dog, in the wrong hands, is a lethal weapon. And owners should be treated in the same way as if they'd had their fingers on a trigger of a gun.

Re: liverpool dog attack

It doesn't matter what breed, if they knew they had a dog capable of this or even knew he was aggressive he should have been under control at all times. The owners should be arrested for at least manslaughter it is entirely their fault.

Agree with you, doesn't matter what breed. Owners are responsible for keeping dogs under control!

Re: liverpool dog attack

The neighbours said on sky news that the dogs were jumping from garden to garden during the day, so the women obviously didn't give a sh!t about their neighbours did they? I hope they serve a long jail sentence and perhaps that will make other crap owners take some notice.

Unfortunately there will always be owners like this and the dogs (whatever breed) will get a bad name.
This evening saw the guy four doors up take his Staffie over the park, off lead well ahead of him and he knows it's attacked dogs in the past - while he walked behind with a glass of beer in his hand! Bloody scum bag!

Why is it these owners think they can do just what they like and to hell with everyone else?

Re: liverpool dog attack

It's an awful thing to have happened, the poor man should have been safe in his own home. So sad.

It's got me wondering what knee jerk reaction from the government is going to come from the recent tragedies where people have been killed or hurt by dogs?

Re: liverpool dog attack

Its a horrendous situation.

The 'owners' deserve what they get and more No it wasnt the dogs fault but I also believe there is no room for dogs like that in our society point blank - Whatever breed.

As for mentioning the breed - Average Joe Bloggs sees all short haired muscular dogs the same. They ALL get tarred with the same brush not just SBT's.

I don't fully understand why people get so upset when they name the breed. Only one paper mentioned a breed which I was aware of and it said it was unconfirmed.

Its such a sad state of affairs - and we wonder why so many places dont welcome dogs with open arms

Re: liverpool dog attack

I am interested to know the breed.
Not because I will then use it as an excuse to vilify all of the same breed, but because I am genuinely interested.

I'd also like to know because I don't think it would have been a pure-bred KC registered Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

There are a lot of people deliberately crossing various breeds to random others just to make money, and not always taking into account the temperament of the sire and dam (didn't we have someone on here recently wanting to breed her Bull Terrier which was aggressive?) or how the mix of breeds might affect the temperament in the puppies.

Being a balanced and open minded person, I know that the majority of Pit Bulls are very nice and friendly dogs, some of them are not, and some are kept by people who don't want them to be nice and friendly. (Or don't have a frigging clue, but that's the same of any breed - all dogs bite).

Same with American Bulldogs, there are plenty who are nice, but there are enough who aren't, and are being over-bred and cross-bred by numpties and sold on to numpties. Again, any breed can be taught to be aggressive and AmB's have a strong guarding instinct, which some people might find hard to control if they aren't prepared for it.

Whatever breed it was though, you have the scenario where a dog or dogs jumped a high fence and someone died as a result.

The news report I saw showed the fence as being 6ft high, so there must have been an awful lot more to it than we're being told right now - not much makes a dog scale a 6ft fence to kill someone.
