And yes they r gonna pay bcuz they knew I was scared of big dogs and that is all they had was bit dogs ( mostly pit bulls).... I will never feel my leg again that dog Fu**d my leg up forever........ But thank u very much
Well I will say this that I know there are not that many pit bulls there. They may have 5 at the most. But any big dog would be bad for you! AARF would never condon anyone working there that is afraid of dogs. It would be very stressful for them as you can vouch for. I hope you talked to the person over that program. If the superviser knowing that you were afraid of dogs put you there anyway you may have a case against them. Something is very wrong with it and it being a government thing it needs to be investigated.

I like your strategy Wow. You are acting sympathetic to this girl when you and all the other AARF groupies have been bashing her in the past. You must be afraid she is going to file a lawsuit against you and she SHOULD. The AARF superviser was not there. He was late that day and has been fired.

It sounds like its this program you were involved in fault. If they knew of your fear and put you here anyway then they should have to answer for what happened. You should have never been around dogs to begin with especially shelter dogs with issues. I'm very sorry for what happened to you but I also feel bad for the dog. He was put in a position he never should have been put in and he paid the ultimate price. I'm sure his life was full of abuse and that was all he knew. Because those supervisors in that program were stupid and apparently didn't give a crap about your feelings you were injured and Bruce will never know what having a home would have felt like. Prayers for your recovery!
AARF person trying to take the blame off them. I hope the girl sees what yu are doing. You didn't give a crap about her feelings but now are worried.
Well

She was involved in a work program that they give you options on where you can work. AARF wasn't the only place. She said herself that she was afraid of dogs. Their superviser to that program was suppose to be there and if he wasn't just goes to show you that this program sucked. She had no business being around any animals while afraid of them. That is just common sense. People who volunteer for AARF doesn't have time to babysit these people in this program. It was a really bad thing that happened to her but and I say this again she should have never been handling any dog with fear of them especially a dominate dog. Also he was only there for a couple of months. There were people in this program that were being mean to these dogs. A couple of guys were let go because of it. This is such a bad program. The government needs to find something else for these people to do to earn their welfare check instead of putting people where they don't need to be. So that being said she can get better and move on but stay away from programs that involve animals.
The AARF superviser was suppose to be there to.Where was he? AARF had a choice to have the workers from the program there. You wanted them.Free labor for you. if a couple of guys were let go why did you still have workers there? why was the AARF superviser not there with the workers?

I don't know who you think you are! If you read any of my posts I've never blamed her for anything. What I said was true. If she was afraid of dogs then the superviser of the program (not anything to do with a AARF person) should have never sent her there. They are the ones that put her into danger. I feel really bad for her! Your assumptions of this issue are wrong. If you knew anything at all you would have never said anything. AARF isn't to blame and there is a volunteer waiver that everyone signs. Her best bet of checking into anything is with that program. They are the ones that sent her there. There are other places that need this service to. I do hope everything is well with her and I do pray she will recover from this emotionally and psychically. Any dog in any rescue wether it be with AARF or in a shelter are all stressed. They have come from abusive situations either mentally or psychically. Anyone with fear should never be around these kinds of animals, big or small. As for the superviser being there it was the program superviser not AARF that's suppose to be there with them at all times. I'm not going to argue with you or anyone else on here. It is pointless but I've said my peace.

Fact is Bruce was stuck in a kennel for months before the attack, any dog or breed this causes CAGE RAGE.
Dave Gillum/AARF Picked up BRUCE and had him put to sleep by Dr. Gay. The only people that killed a dog was AARF the no kill shelter!
Biting the hand that feeds you usually refers to harming someone who is helping you. The same meaning applies to a dog who bites when you or someone else is trying to help it.

Aggression in a pet dog is a serious problem that must be handled before you or someone else is bitten by your pet. Adults as well as children become frightened if an angry dog suddenly lunges at them. And an aggressive dog who goes too far is a lawsuit waiting to happen.

If you have an aggressive dog, the first thing you should do is make an appointment with your veterinarian to rule out any physical causes for the aggression. If a dog is in pain or a lot of discomfort, it may strike out at you and other people and act mean and irritable. You need to be sure that your dog is physically okay before doing anything about its aggression.

Obedience training is essential for dogs. They need it for socialization and to prevent outbreaks of aggression. Prevention is key, since correcting bad behavior is ten times as hard once aggressive behavior is locked into your dog’s brain.

Aggression can be caused by many things, and identifying the cause is the key to correcting the problem. You must first recognize that your dog has a problem in order to help it before a serious incident occurs. By then it is too late.

There are different types of dog aggression:

There is general aggression directed towards you or other dogs;

A chained reaction stems from fear and territorial aggression as a result of being chained up and being threatened by another dog;

Possession aggression is demonstrated when a dog refuses to share a toy for example.

There are other types of dog aggression, in addition to those listed above:

Cage Rage is often seen when a dog has been severely neglected, as many puppies are who have been bred in puppy mills. After spending months, perhaps years in a cage by itself, or even with other dogs, a dog will begin to see the cage as their territory, defending it when necessary.

OK....to clarify...the benefits referred to in the AARF case is what was once called "welfare." It is still public assistance, per se, but it's available for a total of 5 years, and that's all you'd ever get. To get them, you apply @ the food stamp office and are assigned to work in some community service capacity. People are assigned to clothing closets, pantries, maintaining Armco Park and to work @ AARF. At 1 time, there were once a larger variety of posts to work @, but so many of the people stole from the places they worked at. Apparently, they only wanted to participate long enough to get the initial $240 and the additional $200 for transportation. It's a crying shame that people would steal from someone trying to help them.
Aside from commenting upon the character of people working for their benefits,there is a notion of the people operating AARF. They do run hot & cold. 1 time they are friendly, and another they are as rabid as the dogs they fiddle with. Ideally, they could rehabilitate and rehome the dogs they have. But....they seem to have been overrun by violent & absolutely crazy animals. They seem to think as long as they throw some cheap walmart food @ a dog, it'll instantly rehab them into show dog temperament. Regardless of their intent, you still can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

When I was in Prison I participated in the Prison Puppy program. It was a lot of fun, but I had been around pitbulls my whole life. So I wasn't afraid of dogs. It is sad the woman was scared and got bit so badly. Even if she wasn't scared she still could have gotten bitten. People snap, and so do animals. If she reads this I wish her a speedy recovery, and I hope she doesn't give up on dogs all the way.

Many of the women at AARF are hard workers but have no people skills. They wonder why they are scooping poopy alone? Well maybe cuz no grown adult wants to give up their free time to be belittled and talked to in a condescending way. There are plenty of OTHER places to volunteer! Instead of hurting the reputation of the founder & AARF, disassociate yourself! As a local resident, I am embarrassed of the hateful comments made on here & on FB and the unstable, unprofessional manner in which some members represent AARF. People who donate time and $ need to know what this group REALLY is! They hide behind the fascade of "saving animals" to act as if they are heroes when in reality they can't even show common courtesy! Give to another organization that isn't running itself into the ground!!

Well jus to let everyone know my leg is healing. Not fast enough but atleast I'm able to walk... I will always b afraid or dogs forever now. I won't even go outside or let my kid go outside if I see a big dog. Hell it don't have to b a big dog realy.. I still have problems going to sleep at nights. I am going to have to hv cosmetic surgery just to get my leg back to looking normal again. My kids will never b able to have a dog growing up. This didn't just mess up my life it messed up my kids life too. I am not able to take them to the park bcuz I'm afraid of seeing a dog. But to everyone who has been defending me on here. Thank u Guys for ur support. To everyone who keeps defending Bruce(the dog tht attacked me) I'm sorry but he was jus a dog. I mean that kind of dog once they taste the blood they want more. So I'm jus thankful gt he didn't gt my neck n kill me. But I will always go thru the fear of dogs now..

NO ONE SHOULD BE AROUND ANY ANIMAL THAT HAS FEAR OF THEM! THEY PICK UP ON THAT AND IT IS AN EMOTION THAT MAKES THEM FEEL INSECURE! One wrong move and they think the worst. Yes I'm taking up for the dog. Get mad or say I'm horrible but it is a scientific fact that dogs pick up on people's emotions. But it's over now and he is dead and your healing.It is better for everyone concerned that you do stay away from dogs as you should have in the first place.

It has been 7 months since i was attacked and i have been scared ever since.. u ppl can say water u want but it will never change.. i had told my supervised and my case worker that i was afraid and they still put me to work at AARF!!!! They r at fault still putting me wit dogs knowing i was scared. they could have had me doing anything else besides taking the dogs outside. i couldv cleaned up everything else or something. and as for me telling Dave gills. i only seen and talked to him once and that was the day i was attacked. so im tired of defending myself on here. i am the one who was hurt physically and emotionally. so im done. say water u want just remember that i did nothing wrong to the dog, i was just trying to help him. so peace....

Pit bulls are bad news. I can't understand why people continue to breed them. I think owners of bully breeds should be required to have insurance in them just like the liberal freaks want on guns.

Pit bulls are wonderful dogs. It's stupid ignorant people that make animals mean! I've yet to meet a mean pit bull but I've met plenty of mean and hatful people. The people are the ones you need to watch out for. Do your research before you blame any breed. You will find out the owners of some of these dogs are at fault. Pit bulls are a nanny dog. They were known for watching over children. Then you have these scum of the earth wanting to make money over the blood of these dogs. BLAME THEM!

They are called bully breeds for a reason. Here's a stat for you: 33% of all attacks are generated from pit bulls (this includes ALL breeds).
