What kind of charges would be filed? I would do the same thing if a pitt came after my dogs! If anyone should get charged it should be the owner of the pitt.

Unbelievable! The moron who owned the pit bull should be the one prosecuted!! The dog obviously was not friendly enough to be at a dog park in the first place. I commend the Doberman owner for trying to protect his beloved pet. I hope he recovers. This is such a tragedy and yet another case of irresponsible pet ownership. Sadly, it's the dog who suffers in the end.

Crazy dang dogs! Can we please lay off the pit bulls in the media. My dog was attacked by a poodle a few months ago, I didn't call the news.. I called the vet. Both dogs are fine, but I have you know my 90 lb Weimraner ran the dang poodle baring his teeny teeth, bit my weimes tail and drew blood. The owner laughed by the way. Couldn't believe his poodle attacked my 90 lb dog-

Why was there a second attack? Once they were separated the first time. Get the hell out of there.

I would have done the same. My dog is much smaller and if a bigger dog attacks mine, it will be "neutralized". My dog is well trained, is not a fighter, is not a biter, and has been well socialized with other dogs and people.

And they are such loveable dogs. Not. I would have killed, too, to protect my dog.

Im the owner of Man the pit. Lets see my dog was smaller than the doberman the doberman attacked my dog! My dog was defending itself but of course people that read this are going to blame the pit because of the bad rap its a shame some people are ignorant to the fact that my dog was murdered by a pshyco and now my dog is dead they need to prosecute the owner of the doberman! I hope he reads this because he knows he was in the wrong.

They failed to mention if either dog was on a leash. I have a female Chesapeake Bay Retriever and I go camping with a large group of friends every year and we all bring our dogs. She gets along with all of them except one (a sweet Rottweiler Bluetick Hound mix), and they really got into it last year.

My buddy and I were trying to pull them apart but they were locked on each other so I put my thumbs in the other dog's eyes to separate them. My dog ended up with a tear in her neck that required stitches.(The other dog is okay, for those of you who freaked out when I said I poked her eyes.) Needless to say, I don't bring her along when I camp anymore. It's okay, though, the campfire makes her nervous, anyway. While I'm freezing my ass off in a tent in February, she's hangin' at my dad's house. LOL!!!

Remember the movie called 'The Doberman Gang'? I'm sure the Pit Bull recently saw that movie and was afraid that the Dobie was going to be involved in a bank heist. I say blame it on Byron Chudnow for causing fear and panic amongst the population.

Dobermans have higher bites rates than Pit Bulls, I didn't see where in the article it said that the Pit started it? They are both breeds that require responisible owners. The Dobie could have started it too. Don't assume it was the pit. I am not a huge pit fan, but to see Aurora euthanize hundreds of dogs because of an unconstitutional breed ban was so so wrong.

Exactly, they should have left immediately. If your dog is not social (I could care less about breed all dogs can be trained to be dangerous)then don't take him/her to the dog park!

Breeding scmeeding, I know plenty of mean "non dangerous" breeds as well. In fact some of the sweetest dogs I know are pit bulls, their owners take good care of them & keep them in line. The ankle biters are the ones I am most scared of.

Our neighbor accross the street couldn't keep their dogs in the yard. One advanced on me & my daughter in MY yard. Being a good neighbor I went accross the street to ask they fix the fence or put them on a line. She said oh Im sorry I'll get that fixed if I can. 2 days later same thing, this time I went over not as nice as before & explained that if their dogs advanced on me or were on my property I would be calling animal control. She tells me "oh they are all bark & no bite" at that same time the little F&^ker tried to bite me, I kicked the dog and told her "they don't bite? what was that?"

I proceeded to tell her that she better find a way to contain her dogs, because I would be kind enough to call animal control but my husband would shoot them next time they are in the yard. These were cute little floppy mutt dogs, no dangerous breeding I could see.
