The mother should have charges filed on her!!! She lied on the app from the pound saying she had. No kids the pound doesnt place pit bulls in homes with kids. I feel so sorry for the child but how stupid was the mother lying. So she have a pit bull knowing its background.. if you raise the dog with love and kids it would be a great family dog!!!!!

We had several pitbulls growing up. They were nice and friendly and always wanted attention. The neighbor kids were at our house all the time. I think they might take on certain traits of their owners. Ours were big babies.

Oh yeah pits are great if you want something mauled or killed .
they're just like a steel trap and when it snaps like in this case its too late .

from my understanding on the child here in mountain home, that the childs name was on the appication as owner, and the dog wasn't even mostly pit bull, it was a mutt with blue tick and a couple other breads in it. Maybe at the most a quater pitt.

Dogs are dogs, if they feal threatened they will protect themselves. You can only provoke a dog so much before something happenes.

Google babysitter dogs, back in the day pittbulls were aka as babysitter dogs, they would were main protector of many children.

What is worthless is all the people who make these and many other poeple who teach these and other animals to be mean.

The boy is just fine. The surgeries went well and he looks just like the kid he was before the attack. he does have two small scars on his cheek but other than that he's doing well. He's part of my family and since he's been out of the hospital he's been running around and playing just like nothing ever happened.

Dogs are unpredictable no matter what the breed. I was bit across my face by a german shepard when I was nine and all I was doing was standing patting his back gently. All dogs are unpredictable.

Yes All dogs are unpredictable but some are more unpredictable than others. And some are by far more dangerous than others.

The boy may act fine but you can never be sure what kind of mental scares he may have. I hope they put the dog down.

Don't be dumb. Any dog can be mean. It's how you raise them to be. So get your facts straight cause it's not like they're born to kill. I have had 3 pits and they were the nicest dogs I've ever had. I've been around alot of pits and have never been bit by one. But I have been been bit by a lab and a cocker spaniel so I guess those should be banned to huh??????

What does it say about the society we live in when a person values the life of a four legged animal over the life of a fellow human being? It is a damn dog! As far as pit bulls are concerned, you have to remember this breed of dog has been bred for hundreds of years to do one thing, kill. They have powerful jaws to clamp down, and large chest muscles so they can cause damage by violently shaking once they have a firm hold. That is the reason why they are the majority of dogs used for illegal dog fighting in the United States. I have a child, and if I see one running loose in my neighborhood, I will not hesitate to shoot it. You may say you have the right to own any kind of dog you wish, what about my right for my 4 year old son to play in our front yard and not get mauled to death by someone's dog that broke it's chain?

Pit bulls are very vicious. I had an encounter with one about 20 years ago and I have never forgotten it. I was an innocent bystander. I was at a family members house and the dog got loose and bit my hand and attacked two more people. I'm not a big fan of dogs anyway and that just made it worse. If I ever owned a dog it would be something small and cute.

I was over at a friend's house helping him put up some siding. His two little kids were waling up the street on the sidewalk to go to their friend's house to play. 2 doors down a pitpull got out of the backyard and made a beeline for the kids. I heard barking and screaming and looked up to see what the commotion was. I took off running and before I got there the dog had one of the kids by it's arm and shook it to the ground like a rag doll. The dog outweighed the boy.
I still had my boxcutter in my hand from cutting trim. I quickly put my one hand under the dog's chin and pulled it up and with the other slit the dog's throat 3x deep, it was spurting blood everywhere and still wouldn't release its bite and still shaking the little boy. So I starting stabbing it in the eye region with the blade until tip snapped and the dog turned on me before it died. My friend and his wife were freaking out. The boy who was mauled was going into shock and bleeding bad and his brother was sitting on ground bawling. Other negihbors started to come to our aid. The dog's owner came running out swearing and sucker punched me. I knocked his punk ass OUT. The cops and an ambulance arrived. The dog's owner tried to have me arrested for animal cruelty and assault and the cops wouldn't listen to him. Turns out this dog had been loose a few times before, terrorizing pedestrians, their dogs and kids on bikes and had bitten other dogs in the past. Half a dozen neighbors gave statements to the cops saying so.
So I ended up saving the county from putting down this "loveable pet that never hurt a fly" as the owner was claiming. Well he was arrested for punching me, ticketed for unleashed dog and improper fencing, an unregistered dog and sued by my friend and myself for medical costs. The guy moved away within months since every neighbor was against him. He got fined for the dog stuff, and probation for the assault. I saw him in a bar not long after and he tried talking crap again, I told him I'd put him down liked I did his dog and he freaked out and threw a beer bottle at me, so I knocked his sorry ass out again and left. The bartender called the cops and he got arrested and violated probation for being drunk in a bar. HAHAHAHA.
Hahahaha your story of heroism and a**kicking skills made me laugh what a load of bullsh*t none of that happened but thank you cuz me and your wife had quite a laugh reading your lies kudos douc*ebag
