"They are wonderful dogs" Right?

Again another case of "Our dog never showed aggression to any one in the family"...Except your unsupervised newborn you morons. People without enough sense to realize ANY dog that is part of the family before the baby is capable of attack. It is the only way they have to show their fear at being replaced.

Som in your opinion was it abuse, neglect or neither?

  • Neglect.

    NO PET should EVER be left with a small child, much less an infant, unsupervised. Babies especially make noises that are similar to that of an injured animal. It can cause the animal to instinctively attack and kill.

  • That is a horrible tragedy... No child should EVER be left alone with a dog, ANY breed dog, no matter what. I would consider that neglect too, with unfortunately a terrible outcome....

  • OMG how horrible. I would consider that neglect. Tragic to lose a child in that manner.

  • Definitely neglect. I don't care what breed of dog you have, you don't leave it unattended with a newborn around. That story made me so sad and so angry.

  • YOu know cats can be just as aggressive and yes do very major damage!!!! You may not think so but one scratch in a sensitive spot on a newborn can be fatal also umm yeah do not leave a newborn unattended anyway at all.
