A courageous Pit Bull and Pit Bull owner story, with a happy ending

Post by Jodd » Mon, 15 Mar 2004 09:35:21



A few weeks ago I took my Australian Shepherd, Striker, to the
leash-free park, he loves to run around and play with all his canine
pals. It was a beautiful sunny day, and after an hour or so time to
go. I put on his lead and started towards the exit gate.

Striker is a neutered male, has never demonstrated any aggressive
tendencies and seems to love all dogs and humans.

About a hundred yards or so an American Pit Bull Terrier, slowly
started approaching my Aussie. As the Pit Bull approached, Striker
paused; I could see the clump of fur (where his tail used to be)
wagging as he welcomed his new friend.

Sure enough, when the Pit Bull got into striking range he lunged at
Striker. Striker immediately went into a *** posture. This
didn't stop the Pit Bull; it jumped on him. I heard Striker yelp and
pulled on his lead separating the dogs. I immediately looked around,
looking for the owner, yelling get your dog away from mine.

Nobody came forward, apparently the owner was taking a wait and see
attitude. The Pit Bull slowly came stalking in again as I was trying
to hustle Striker away. The Pit Bull came lunged again knowing Striker
to the ground, Striker rolled over exposing his underbelly, and the
Pit Bull went after him again. At this point I wound up and attempted
to kick the Pit Bull, my leg didn't make good contact and just grazed
off his shoulder. As I was drawing my leg back, the Pit Bull bit my
leg.

The bite was just a minor abrasion, no big deal. The Pit Bull then
turned its attention back to Striker. He was quickly on top of him
again. I dropped the lead ran towards the dogs and kicked the Pit Bull
square in the eye with the heel of my boot. It let out a huge yelp.

Funny how the owner who had not been interested in stopping his dog
earlier was now concerned. I guess it's OK for his dog to attack other
dogs and people, but once his dog gets hurt it's now time to get
involved.

He put his dog on the lead and proceeded to leave the park. He
struggled pulling his dog out of the park, this beast was doing
everything it could to continue its attack. I attended my dog who was
OK but limping, favouring his back right leg. After putting Striker in
my car, I approached the Pit Bull owner. I told him that I had been
bit and asked him for his name, address and phone number.

The coward that he is would not provide it to me. He told me it was my
own fault for kicking his dog. He got into his car a drove away. I
wrote down his license plate information and then talked to other dog
owners at the park who witnessed the attack.  Each and every one of
them provided me with their names and addresses and encouraged me to
contact them if I needed to.

I went home and called the police. I described the days events, showed
them the mark left from the dog bite and asked them to provide me with
the name and address of the Pit Bull owner. They told me that they
could not give me his information without investigating the incident.

I gave the police the list of witnesses and told them that I intended
to pursue the owner of the dog. They left without providing me any of
his personal information, that they would investigate. A couple of
days later they returned, telling me that they had investigated. Many
of the independent witness verified my claims and that I could get the
owner's name and address after I filled out some forms.

The area I live in has zero tolerance laws against dog bites. If a dog
bites, it gets destroyed. I ensured that this dog was destroyed!

It was put down yesterday. While I take no satisfaction in the fact
that the dog was killed, I am content knowing that this dog will not
attack any other animal or person.

I guess this is the point where all the American Pit Bull owners start
their defensive rants about how people don't understand Pit Bulls and
their reputations are undeserved. Basically they would be repeating
the same things this cowardly owner was saying about his dog when I
approached him after the incident.

Striker limped for a couple days after the incident but he is doing
great.

One more aggressive American Pit Bull Terrier has been removed from
the planet, that's a good thing.

Oh my god, what a story!  And our Aussie's are such fun-loving little guys;
they wouldn't think to attack back.  I hope your dog's okay!  I can't
imagine what I'd do if I was in that same situation.  I can't stand Pit
Bulls and where I live, this island is FULL of them.  You can't trust 'em.

I'm not defending this person or his actions with his dog but if that dog
owner was prepared to just sit and watch the attack, what does that tell
you? Bad owner, bad dog.
Any dog could be just as aggresive with a irresponsible owner.
You obviously care alot about your dog witch I admire and the dog did
deserve to be put down but IMHO, so did the owner!
I do not own a pit bull as I do not have the income or time for it's
complete needs, But I love the breed yet I am not naive to it's reputation
or that it is not half true.

I'm an Aussie owner, and I'd give you that rant in a second if I
thought that it would do any good.  That APBT owner was a bad
owner, plain and simple - and it's too bad that his dog had to
pay the price for his ignorance and stupidity.

No, Jodder, I will not rant and rave.  I will just tell you that if you
think you accomplished anything other than having that dog put down,
then you are a fool.  This person who stood by and watched his pitbull
(if it was one) attack your dog will just go out and get another one.
Now if you really wanted to impress him, you should have pursued him in
court for vet bills and doctor bills.  You go for their pocketbooks and
that will make these people much more responsible.

Yes, and my female is a fun loving little person who doesn't attack
other animals.  How many times do people have to be told.  It is not the
Breed.  It is the Owner who is at fault.  Every Time.

Jorrod it sounds like another Hocus Pocus bull ***story. You as a
responsible owner should no something about all dogs if your going to
walk your dog in a park where there are all kinds of diseases and
unexpected dog fights. I personally would have walked as far away from
the pit as I could. I wouldn't have given the dog an opportunity to
fight my dog in the first place. I've got this feeling you know about
Pit Bulls by the story your telling us.
The pit is dead good grief some people make me sick I don't know if is
the owner or you that makes me the sickest.

Actually this is about the point where your idiocy shines like the north
star on a clear dark night. I can tell a story of my own, and it's
actually true unlike your dubious tale. Yeah I remember when I walked my
dog, a pitbull, on her leash on a public street and the neighbor's dog, a
scrungy little mutt, ran out and bit her on the leg. Personally I was
about to let her rip that thing in half because this wasn't the first time
that stupid dog had charged out at us and it wasn't the first time I'd
asked them to keep their dog confined to their yard (they had a fence
around the back yard even). But no they couldn't do that for gods know
what reasons. Probably laziness and stupidity like anyone who lets any dog
run around off-leash in a public place. Anyway, my dog just yelped and
looked puzzled at this crazed little ball of matted fur and teeth. Yeah my
dog is a pitbull and she didn't fight back after being attacked and bit by
a mutt half her size. Imagine that. I had to kick that thing to get it
away from my dog. Lord knows if it had rabies or something the way they
let it run around unchecked. So my "defensive rant" is about you not
understanding dogs in general and how stupid you come across when you
blame an entire breed for bad things that individual dogs, and people, do.
Get a clue fool, you didn't accomplish anything but showing how ignorant
you are.

Thinking of stories I was walking my frineds pit bull for him while he was
doing graveyard shifts, his dog needed exercise while he was asleep during
the day and a guy from my old school had his  rather big agressive as ***
as it was tormented daily buy him, bull dog on a very long rope  obviosly
not in control of it, he started walking across the road I just kept walking
but he thought he'd be cool and see if the dogs would fight (in a main
street). His dog jumped on Seven (female, 3 yr old, pure american pit bull)
and she cowered behind me while I kicked the dog in the face he was the one
walking away embarrised, no harm done to the dog I was walking but she just
wasn't interested, more scarred then anything.
