The straight dope is that this SHELTIE is not harmful. The people who know dogs best (Stevens Swan) say that he is a gentle loving dog. He was obviously provoked and my advice to parents is keep your meddling children away from dogs. If they annoy humans, imagine how the dog feels. And I've been tempted many times to give a child a good backhand across the face. So I don't blame this dog for saying "leave me alone brat!"

The dog and the child were behind the grandfather going from one room to another, so they're not sure what, if anything, she might have done to provoke the dog.
NOT UNATTENDED! Got OWNED again, asslicker.
for someone trying to save its dogs life why would you go on topix and talk shyt about the judge. I know the court clerk personally as she is a good friend. I told her about the beretta family going on topix and slamming the judge. If I were vanslyke I would shoot the dog in the head. This has to be either Stephanie or Nicole. Your kid deserved to get attacked. Put the cheeseburgers down and don't ever turn your back on yiur kid. You switch the story to many times. First you say the kid was blocked by adults then you say you were walking into another room. You were probably walking in the kitchen. I hope the court read this and see how man times the story changes.

Besides, if a judge allows something posted on Topix to sway his rulings then clearly it shows how unfit he really is to be presiding over anything.

Shelties are not aggressive dogs in the least. Have owned two now, both females.

someone should shoot you in the head, clearly rabies has taken hold of your pea brain.

ARE YOU PEOPLE KIDDING ME BY MALIGNING THE DECISION OF JUDGE VANSLYKE. DID ANY ONE OF YOU EVER THINK THAT MAYBE HE WAS EQUIPPED WITH THE FACTS TO SUPPORT THE DECISION MADE AND THAT HE WAS WELL WITHIN THE LAW AND HIS ROLE AS A JUDGE AND THE POSITION THAT HE WAS DULY ELECTED FOR AND MAINTAINED FOR MANY YEARS. YOUR POSITION IS BASED UPON EMOTION AND HATE AND A FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND THE LAW. THE DOG BIT THE CHILD. THE FACTS SUPPORT THIS. PUT THE DOG DOWN OR THE PARENTS.THE CHILD IS MOST LIKELY SCARRED FOR LIFE. HE AS ENDURED PAIN AND SUFFERING THAT WAS AVOIDABLE. THE NEXT CHILD SIMILIARY SITUATED WITH THIS DOG CAN HAVE ANY RISK AVOIDED BY PUTTING IT DOWN WHICH IS NOT AN UNHUMANE ACT. THE PARENTS SHOULD BE PREVENTED FROM HAVING ANOTHER DOG UNIL SUCH TIME THAT THEY HAVE PROVEN TO THE COUR THAT THEY HAVE SUFFICIENTLY LEARNED THE RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES ASSOCIATED WITH OWNING DOG. AND THAT'S HOW YOU DEAL WITH THE MATTER.

by all means, cite the laws you are referring to. Bet you can't.

Facts of the case did not support Van Slyke's ruling. The dog was quarantined for observation as is required and has shown NO aggressiveness at all. Based on that FACT, this judge is the one acting out of emotion rather than fact. Its time to remove him from the bench.

Clearly you don't know the law nor have owned dogs with young children in the household. Clearly, you post out of utter ignorance.

§ 123. Dangerous dogs

1. Any person who witnesses an attack or threatened attack, or in the case of a minor, an adult acting on behalf of such minor, may make a complaint of an attack or threatened attack upon a person, companion animal as defined in section three hundred fifty of this chapter, farm animal as defined in such section three hundred fifty, or a domestic animal as defined in subdivision seven of section one hundred eight of this article to a dog control officer or police officer of the appropriate municipality. Such officer shall immediately inform the complainant of his or her right to commence a proceeding as provided in subdivision two of this section and, if there is reason to believe the dog is a dangerous dog, the officer shall forthwith commence such proceeding himself or herself.

2. Any person who witnesses an attack or threatened attack, or in the case of a minor, an adult acting on behalf of such minor, may, and any dog control officer or police officer as provided in subdivision one of this section shall, make a complaint under oath or affirmation to any municipal judge or justice of such attack or threatened attack. Thereupon, the judge or justice shall immediately determine if there is probable cause to believe the dog is a dangerous dog and, if so, shall issue an order to any dog control officer, peace officer, acting pursuant to his or her special duties, or police officer directing such officer to immediately seize such dog and hold the same pending judicial determination as provided in this section. Whether or not the judge or justice finds there is probable cause for such seizure, he or she shall, within five days and upon written notice of not less than two days to the owner of the dog, hold a hearing on the complaint. The petitioner shall have the burden at such hearing to prove the dog is a “dangerous dog” by clear and convincing evidence. If satisfied that the dog is a dangerous dog, the judge or justice shall then order neutering or spaying of the dog, microchipping of the dog and one or more of the following as deemed appropriate under the circumstances and as deemed necessary for the protection of the public:

(a) evaluation of the dog by a certified applied behaviorist, a board certified veterinary behaviorist, or another recognized expert in the field and completion of training or other treatment as deemed appropriate by such expert. The owner of the dog shall be responsible for all costs associated with evaluations and training ordered under this section;

(b) secure, humane confinement of the dog for a period of time and in a manner deemed appropriate by the court but in all instances in a manner designed to:(1) prevent escape of the dog,(2) protect the public from unauthorized contact with the dog, and (3) to protect the dog from the elements pursuant to section three hundred fifty-three-b of this chapter. Such confinement shall not include lengthy periods of tying or chaining;

(c) restraint of the dog on a leash by an adult of at least twenty-one years of age whenever the dog is on public premises;

(d) muzzling the dog whenever it is on public premises in a manner that will prevent it from biting any person or animal, but that shall not injure the dog or interfere with its vision or respiration; or

(e) maintenance of a liability insurance policy in an amount determined by the court, but in no event in excess of one hundred thousand dollars for personal injury or death resulting from an attack by such dangerous dog.

The dog was evaluated and deemed not to be dangerous but Van Slyke, against the law, ignored this.

further:

4. A dog shall not be declared dangerous if the court determines the conduct of the dog (a) was justified because the threat, injury or damage was sustained by a person who at the time was committing a crime or offense upon the owner or custodian of the dog or upon the property of the owner or custodian of the dog; (b) was justified because the injured, threatened or killed person was tormenting, abusing, assaulting or physically threatening the dog or its offspring, or has in the past tormented, abused, assaulted or physically threatened the dog or its offspring; (c) was justified because the dog was responding to pain or injury, or was protecting itself, its owner, custodian, or a member of its household, its kennels or its offspring; or was justified because the injured, threatened or killed companion animal, farm animal or domestic animal was attacking or threatening to attack the dog or its offspring. Testimony of a certified applied behaviorist, a board certified veterinary behaviorist, or another recognized expert shall be relevant to the court's determination as to whether the dog's behavior was justified pursuant to the provisions of this subdivision.

Key here is "(c) was justified because the dog was responding to pain or injury,"

Fact remains, the dog was deemed not dangerous by the appropriate people and this judge overstepped his authority.
