Bystanders Remove Dog From Boy's Leg
Hartford, CN - An unleashed pit bull attacked a 10-year old boy as he was leaving a doctor's office Tuesday night. It took several people to pull the dog off the young victim. Witnesses said the boy was bitten on the leg and shaken up but is expected to be okay.
Like many dog trainers purport, inappropriate actions of all dogs are the result of the dog owner or the victim.
"It might have been the actions of the child, or it might have been something on the dog's part, but it's probably the home environment," says dog trainer Emily Fisher.
This dog trainer would like us to believe the following: The owner of the dog "taught" the dog to attack children upon exiting buildings. If you believe that, we've got some nice beachfront property for you in Florida.
Like human beings, dogs are living creatures with minds of their own. We don't pretend to know precisely what a human being is capable of and we ought to make the same distinction for dogs. To categorically claim that a dog is only "taught" or "provoked" into a behavior denies his genetic make up and brain function.
