The dog attacked the child at his own home.
It does not say what breed. Is there a link to the original story?
Where is Colac?
Is this from a newspaper?
It's from ABC online so I'm guessing it was on the news or something. I couldn't find the original story.
So obviously it was not a Pitbull or a Rottweiler or that would be all over the headlines.
It's in Victoria, Australia. I can find no mention of the type of dog. The dog attacked the kid in his front yard.
It's probably a type of dog you wouldn't think.
I love how they leave out the breed if it's not one to get a reaction. Got to love the media
thanks. I love you too.
lol just kidding
Ain't that the truth!!
Well it was prollie like a Lab or Pom or something.. lol..
I remember a little girl that used to come into the vet clinic that I worked at. She had a horrible scar across her face. The mother told me that their poodle did it when the girl was a toddler Yes, poodle. Just goes to show that any dog can bite and that kids need to be monitored to make sure they are not mistreating the animals.
I remember a study back in the 1980's that showed on the average, a miniature poodle was more likely to bite than any other dog. And this was in the midst of the "Ban the Rotts!" craze...
I am cautious with any dog. But, I am more cautious with Poodles and Chis than I am with big dogs. Those little dogs have some big spunkiness in that tiny body!
I'm supprised they didn't say it was a Pit Bull. To the media anything that bites magically becomes a Pit Bull. Basically when the media says Pit Bull it means "insert breed here"
Most of the stories use the police statement, which simply says the breed of the dog is yet to be determined. According to these two stories, the dog is either a bull terrier or a bull terrier cross.
The link in the original post was to the Australian Broadcasting Corp., not the American.
oie, what did I tell ya
