5 thoughts on “Shriners Hospitals for Children Helps Third Young Southern Pit Bull Mauling Victim

Please review our comment policy.

  1. I want to know what the breed or mix of all 3 dogs was – Police 1st said Pit Bull now Granny says American Bulldog – "SOMEHOW" ALL THE HEROISM FALLS FLAT CONSIDERING THE CHILD WAS ALLOWED TO PLAY AROUND THOSE 3 DOGS TO BEGIN WITH APPARENTLY FOR HER ENTIRE LIFE.

  2. It was never going to happen to "her" grandchild, which is why the dangerous dog sign was hanging on the fence? Except that it did, and it required a special airlift, a police officer shooting the dog to death — God knows how many first responders in total — hospital workers at Egleston, all of the neighbors that helped and of course now Shriners as well. "It takes a village" to care for a child mauled by a pit bull? That would be an understatement. The fact that all of the dogs were removed isn't uncommon after an attack. What would be common is if Granny (or a brother or uncle at the home) was breeding. Here's to the Nanny Dog!

  3. Is there any way for the Shriners to say "We'll pay for treatment, but no more pit bulls for this family," or something else that's equally forceful? It seems like they're in need of some Pit Bull Reality Education.
