  1. It should be noted that Bones is at large in Toledo. This dog was too dangerous to remain in New York City so the Lexus Project sent him to a tiny private home in Toledo Ohio. I link to the Facebook page of the Northwest Ohio Underdog Rescue. Please scroll down to a post made on Tuesday 1/9/2013 about a sighting of Bones. At 6:17 p.m. Elizabeth Sugg,a supporter of NWO Underdog Rescue, asks if the dog was alone or with someone. At 7:42 p.m. NWO Underdog Rescue answers with one word, "alone." Flyers posted for this lost dog, a Craigslist ad for this lost dog, and the Toledo Blade article on this lost dog all fail to mention details of Bones violent past. David Shadha called 911 to report that his roommate sicced the dog on him. A Coroner's report was required to determine the cause of death for Shadha. Head injury (Shadha was also hit in the head with a pipe) v. the mauling. Failure to maintain adequate control of this violent dog should impact the ability of the Lexus Project to obtain custody of more violent dogs.

  2. You indicate (rightly) that together, pit bulls and rottweilers are responsible for 73% of DBRF in 2012.

    I'd like to point out that if you add in the many 'molloser' type dogs that are in fact pit bull mixes or derivatives (cane Corso, dogo Argentino, BULL mastiff, etc), you see that this type of dog, anything with pit bull genes, is responsible for 86% of DBRF in 2012.

    Pits, rottweilers, and pit derivatives are killing six times as many humans now as all other dog breeds and types combined.

    Just a thing your ordinary citizen and shameless politician oughtta know…

  3. I wonder if there has ever before been a recorded death by a so called "service dog." I highly doubt it.

    Thank you for finding the patterns in deaths you have found – the visiting dog scenario is extremely common, and hopefully parents will find this information and take heed!

    The lexus project is a menace. They will literally give dangerous dogs to anyone, and there is a frightening pool of people who believe the propaganda that you can love aggression out of a dog and who are dying for it. This is a combination made in hell.

    And as for the propaganda – it is becoming glaringly apparent that it is literally killing people. The nanny dog, judge dogs individually, Genetically determined aggression can be removed by love and guidance, all these arguments have literally underpinned decisions people made this year that ended up in a horrific fatal mauling.
