just like a child animals have to be watched, if you dont have time to care for your child, you sure dont have time to care for an animal! Animals cant talk and Need more attention!

Seems like all has forgotten about this poor dog caged INDEFINITELY??????
This is inhumane but not surprised..everything goes on back burner..sick of watching all the politics about scamming city officials....don,t know the truth but we know the truth and all that happened that day....so COURT DO SOMETHING once and for all......just let him go to Colorado and live out the rest of his life....he does,t even know what he did wrong and what a horrific accident that whole day was,,,,but "was" is the word..lets move on and let him out of his misery once and for all

cece is right. They left the child with one of the worlds most fierce dogs. I also read they thaught the child the grab the dogs fur to get up! that would have startled the dog! Also, many humans have killed a bunch of kids for no reason , but are allow to live, but this dog killed the child because he thought something bad was happenning, but he must die,because he is a dog someone please explain the logic?

People do more harm to people than dogs. This dog is not vicious and only reacted to being startled just like you would have if you were startled. Dogs do not understand like humans should. I love all animals and it is an injustice what is happening to this dog.

Dog needs to be put down wrote:
This group trying to save this dog disgusts me, a 1 year old child had his neck broke by this dog and all they care about is the animal not this child; shame on you. I had a Rot that never showed agression but out of the blue she lunged at my daughter and the Rot was never provoked in any way, I immediately loaded the dog into my vehicle, took her to the vet and had the dog put down. All the animal lovers are missing one point once an animal shows aggression it needs to be put down and if you think that sending the dog to a sanctuary is the answer, who says the dog won't turn on the new owner.
This group of dog haters disgust me beyond anything else. This poor dog was only doing what any animal would do if startled and felt threatened because of the kid messing with it. People kill humans everyday and so many do gooders do not want them put of of their misery yet you want to rant on a dog that did not mean to do what it did. Dogs have no voice of their own.

I totally agree with you Ken......
It,s so sad for that family and that poor innocent baby......baby didn,t know what was happening ..had no idea...dog didn,t as well...and I must say family made a mistake and are paying the ultimate price..but killing Onion won,t bring it all okay again..won,t ever be okay..
So one injustice does,t warrant another..
I,m hoping peace will come to all when Onion hopefully is let go to the Lexus group and sent to his new forever home in Colorado..he,s been punished enough....can,t imagine whats going on in his head..hes been abandoned and not knowing why and wheres his family?
Courts , you let killers go all the time ..it happens and we all know it because of something that was done AGAINST THEM that you, the court does,nt except and on a misdemeanor they are set free..Onion won,t be FREE, not the way he would like to be but can at least live out his life with other dogs , protected this time against humans mistakes..we all make them..for once ..do the right thing and let the Lexus Group take him where he won,t be able to make another mistake again...WE ALL MAKE THEM...right a wrong please

That,s a Horrible thing to say...are you righting this so the courts see your blog and think all of us think the sick thoughts you do....
Shame on you..the child was ONE YRS. OLD and didn,t know any better as poor Onion didn,t know any better...stop judging and saying cruel things..glad your not at this court case..Onion would lose and that would be a shame because of sick people like yourself....
If you have nothing decent to say..then say NOTHING...
I believe and hope ..in my heart that Onion should go to this new home in Colorado and live out whats left of his life..hes already been in Prison so to speak for almost 2 yrs. now...
Let all heal......
Family ...dog and child is in a better place....
I,m for you Onion, your owners asa well..I believe that this will all go away when decided..once and for all
