That's horrible for that child. My heart goes out to heart and the poor animal who was taught to be vicious. I will keep her in my prayers. Please do not blame the breed blame the owner who made that dog what it became. The owner should be in prison because dogs only learn from there teachers. What that dog did is what that owner had trained him to do not meaning in attacking a child but in attacking or being scared and always on guard. People like them should be locked in cages

Not saying the owner didnt make the dog mean. I know Im probably gonna get mobbed by the pitbull lovers, but these dogs were bred to fight bears in pits, that is where the name came from. I agree with the original poster, how many freakn times does this have to happen b4 all the low class scum stops breeding these monsters?! I have a close buddy whos daughter got mauled this same way. I told him 100 times not to have that dog around her. Well 2 yrs into in, it bit her. If you want to have one outside thats different, but why in the world would u want to risk having one around a small child? This is not youtube where you see a tiger and a gazelle together licking each other LOL! That might happen once in a blue moon. But I guarantee you one will not be around my child. I would never ever mistreat one. Not saying that. But Im not gonna treat it like its some kind of cute little gerbal either.

I have six pit bulls. I have had each one since they were born. They were all raised around children. Never once have they went after or bitten anybody. As long as you don't come into my house uninvited you are ok otherwise you are stuck til one of us gets there. They are the most loving dogs. I had always heard bad things about the breed. My mind changed when I owned my first one. They love the kids and my boys love the dogs. Blame the owner and the deed but not the breed. Anybody is welcome to see any of mine. They ave changed a few ppl's mind already. Praying for the little girl.

It is a shame, and the dog in question may be unsafe, but... Blame the owner not the breed. All of my dogs have been pitbull mutts, one a pit/dob, and they have all been the sweetest dogs. I think labs are more likely to bite, but again, because thier owners, they underestimate the need to treat a dog properly. Furthermore, children need to be socialized with dogs to see the warning signs of scared or mistreated animals. The adults in this situation are the only ones to blame. My heart goes out to the familes, the girl, and the dog. Socialization is the answer.

I have a friend who adopted a pitbull and a kitten from a shelter. they were both born at the shelter under loving conditions. his family showed them nothing but love and kindness. when they were both about a your old, they came home from work and the dog head slaughtered the cat. there was blood on the ceiling and walls. that gene is in them.

Why don't you go to Murray Topix and read the story. The child was bitten, not mauled. 60 stitches isn't a lot, considering the very small stitches used in these type of closures. Get the whole story before you start all the "pit bull" terror tales.

Oh just 60 stitches for a little girl. I guess you feel that is acceptable.

I'm not going to attack you about the dogs but yes I am an owner of one myself. But I do have to add something.
They were bred and known as Nannies I have a beautiful article I would love everyone to see to explain there history but they were not bred to fight bears in pits etc sorry. If your interested I would love to show you the true facts.

They were bred for strength and aggression. Any dog that willfully squares off with wild boars has no place among childreb. Every pit fan has to say how sweet their dog is and that is the exception, not the norm. Not all labs are good retrievers just like not every pit is aggressive, however they both have desired tendencies depending on your needs.

they also use labs and a number of other breeds of every day household family dogs to hunt wild boars so what are you going to say about them

How is saying something about sutures stupid. It's a fact, for closing that kind of wound, very small stitches are used.

You seem to be taking this lightly that a little girl only required 60 small stitches.

I am simply stating a fact. I didn't state my opinion at all. How can you presume to know how I "take" anything?

There shouldn't have been any stitches involved at all
