Unacceptable. The police were there before and no charges filed. A 3 foot fence is inadequate for this type of animal. The city should be sued for gross negligence. I know we live in a litigious society already, but how else do you make these numbskulls do their jobs? The dog owner should be sent to Guantanamo and waterboarded.

Cut the owners leg and toss the dog and him in a small shed and lock the door! Two animals enter, only one animal leaves, and then shoot the animal that leaves!

I keep hearing they're really very sweet dogs.

I'm not big on lawsuits, but when it comes to pit bull owners, they should be sued for every penny they have if their dog attacks someone.

And people wonder why these type of dogs have such a bad reputation and why the shelters are full of them.

it's based on their training. Nothing inherent in a pit bull would make them do this.

It's the owners not the dog. Good honest training and the dogs are sweet babies. no I don't have one but some of my neighbors do and they roll over waiting to have their chins scratched. I am well aware that any dog on any day can change and with their strong jaws bad news. But until I get bitten, I still like them. Watch the "Dog Whisperer" He's got severa; in his pack and the pack leader, when he's not there, is a small dog.

Sad thing is, most of the owners don't have a pot to tinkle in.

Not that I condone owning a pit bull, but its fact that daschunds bite more people a year than pitbulls, german sheperds, and rottweilers combined. You just dont here about it cause, well daschunds are cute! Mine included, so stay the hell out of my yard!

If I had to guess what type of dog and what type of person were responsible I would've guessed right on both accounts. Shocker!

Sue the city? How about making the owner of the dog accountable? The city isn't training the dog to be vicious.
