Working Group
General Appearance
That of a symmetrical animal, showing great strength, endurance, and alertness; powerfully built but active. The foundation breeding was 60% Mastiff and 40% Bulldog. The breed was developed in England by gamekeepers for protection against poachers."

The 40% bulldog doesn't mean the goofy looking Winston Churchill bulldog. It means 40% the original bear-baiting, bull-baiting, pit-fighting 'bulldog' that we now call the pit bull. Dogfighters still call their pit bulls simply 'bulldog'. All the 'bull' breeds were created by mixing this original pit bull with some other breed or breeds. Very often the fighting bulldog was mixed with some local mastiff type. This is what gave us the Bull Mastiff, the Presa Canario, Dogo Argentino, Boerboel, and so on. They are all in fact pit bull derivatives / mixes.

And we have a big, monster bullmastiff on Lynne's Facebook page:

So am I the only one who is wondering about the "missing" dog?

Is the dog missing by accident or on purpose?

If I was a betting person I would say the dog was conveniently missing.

Last year when a babysitters "nanny" attacked the visiting child in Oxnard,CA, the dog also went conveniently missing. The boyfriend or brother ran off with it. It was later "captured".

I see the dog was "found"

"Investigators were unable to locate the dog over the weekend, but found him Monday afternoon. The dog is expected to be euthanized. It's not known if the owners will be charged."

Some of the comments on the news9 link (hyperlink Killer Dog Located) are incredibly disgusting.

People are mourning the dog, stating the dog was just protective, and blaming the child.

This child's bloody horrendous death will forever be hidden behind the smoke of TORNADO AND TEMPER TANTRUM. When I watch news coverage of weather or natural disasters like tornadoes or earthquakes I always wonder who is taking care of the monster dogs that can't be moved about so easy? It occurred to me that if a tornado had hit Jessieville AR and made a lot of unusual noise, would this Bullmastiff have killed its owners and whoever was around during the storm??? These people must have been friends and this dog must have been around these kids many times. Had they never made a high-pitched noise before? I am having trouble accepting how this dog owner says this all went down.

We haven't been making updates largely because of the last two Ts you refer to. It greatly pains me to see law enforcement so distressed by this boy's terrible death and rack it up to a TT, or in this video's case: The dog was protecting the adult from a CHILD because the child was mad about putting some shoes on… So naturally, a sustained unrelenting mauling ensued causing the boy's death. God knows where his 2-year old sister is at this time; hopefully authorities took her out of this home. --

266th US DBRF in the last 8.5 years...That's an annual rate of just over 31 per year.

The Dog lobby seems to be stuck back in the 90's claiming a number about half of what it currently is.

Then they call others ignorant...

i don't let my kids around strange dogs, i don't let strange kids approach my dog. some parents don't listen and let their children just walk up to him and i have to pull him away quickly because a kid could fall on him or poke him or just freak him out. luckily he's just a little guy and wouldn't do real damage. i can see why mom is angry with all involved, including herself. but if you're going to bring charges against dog's guardian, then why not against irresponsible aunt/sister, too.
