  1. Spidey sense is tingling that if this was a lab or a golden retriever they would be singing it out from every mountain top!

    The Carolinas love their dogfighting and Pit/Rott DBRFs, but they usually go after the owner for manslaughter.

    How many DBRFs is that for the US in 2012?!?

  2. Drum roll… the very first post, 11/11/2012

    "Has anyone heard about the terrible incident at Deep Creek Kennel on Friday? Wondering what will happen to the Rottweiler that attacked the baby. People always talk about how great the dog is around children. So sweet until they snap! I honestly doubt a 3-month-old baby could provoke a dog; seems like that is always a great excuse."

  3. So how is child neglect resulting in manslaughter a "private family matter"?

  4. Pits and Rotts have now killed 258 Americans since the last CDC Report concluded breed has little to do with the DBRF issue.

    Oh well…Hose the blood off the sidewalk and pump out another litter!

  5. "The dog responsible for the fatal attack on a 2-month-old Yadkin County girl on Friday was found dead when emergency officials arrived on the scene, a Yadkin County official said Wednesday.
    Anna Hamby, the county’s animal control director, said that her department was called by the sheriff’s office after the attack Friday in the Forbush community.
    “The owner met him (the animal control officer) with the dog, and it was deceased at that time,” Hamby said.
    She said she did not have information on how the dog died."

    That is the only positive aspect about this story.
    At least we don't have to worry about an effort to save the poor misunderstood doggy……..

  6. I've been doing some research of my own on this (including reading other blogs) and here is what I found out. Note that I cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information:

    The dog was owned by Dixie's *grandmother* who was babysitting the infant at the time. The rottweiler dog "somehow" got out of the room in which it was being held and killed the baby.

    Its believed that the father of the baby killed the dog.

  7. Sounds like a first-class coverup. And why might that be? Does someone not want the public to know how dangerous certain types of dogs can be?

  8. Here's the comment from the alleged father:

  9. Question for the alleged father: If it wasn't your dog, what was it doing around your baby?

  10. This 'not bad, not child-neglecting' family had the one Rottenmauler put down that killed the baby. The others, who share the killer's genes, are still alive and breeding.

    The supposed father still doesn't get it either that it could have been prevented by choosing a non-Weapon Breed to make money with. He still doesn't get it that the child was *foretellably* in harm's way before she was conceived just simply by the selfish, stupid, egoistic, narcissistic choice of Grandma to breed weapon dogs…or even own one.

    These people clearly blamed the one weapon dog. When will they get it that they need to be blaming themselves too? This might sound harsh towards people who just lost a child — but if they don't blame themselves, they'll continue to endanger both their own and other people's children. I have more sympathy with those children than with any of the pathologically selfish adults.

  11. "Robin Jennings, who is related to Dixie Jennings, and owns Deep Creek Kennel. Jennings has been training and showing Rottenmaulers for 28 years and is a former president of the Yadkin County Humane Society and animal-cruelty investigator, according to the kennel's website."

    If the former President of a County Humane society who is a dog trainer and kennel owner with 28 years experience, can't protect family members from a Rottenmauler…Shouldn't you?!?

    *You Can't Make This Stuff Up!
