So my kids were at the neighbors playing. Adults where outside too and their door was open. The dog apparently came running out the door and just attar med my son. Now my son has a huge hole and bite mark on his arm. The parents didn't come to see if he was ok until after they heard I was taking him to the hospital. Them they where trying to come up with reasons why the dog might have bit him and then saying "let me look" like I was over reacting.

Sorry but for me if a dog bites the dog needs to go. I'm filling out papers to have filed at the humane society and will be following up to make sure the animal is removed. My kids will also never play there again until that animal is gone.

What's worse is this is going to make my son afraid of dogs again. My mom had a dog years ago that was unhappy that my son was the only kid who didn't pay her attention so she bit him. Mom got that dog gone asap but we had to work with my son to make him not afraid of dogs. He just got over his fear this last summer and was Comfortable around them.

Yep I'm livid. I am not going to allow these people to make excuses for their dog. They want me to come o er to their house when I vet home...still unsure if I'm going to cause as mad as I am and if they make excuses or beg me not to say anything I might be a huge hitch...then their dog might bite me...haha

I'm sorry that happened. What a shitty situation for both of your families. I agree with you, although i do understand it being hard to get past their emotions and choose to make the decision themselves.

File a report.  I know someone whose next door neighbor bit their kid.  Not only was the dog ordered to be put down, but they sued the neighbor and the neighbor had to pay the medical bills.

 That really is too bad that it happened. The dog definitely needs to be taken and evaluated. It is unfortunate for all involved that your son got bit and that they did not do a better job to prevent it. Accidents happen but they still need to do the right thing.

If someone else's dog bit my child, I'd fucking shoot it myself.

Ngi ne themba - I have hope.

So I get home and they come right over. They are concerned about animal control and what might happen to their dammed dog. Then the guy says "id like to have him come over and introduce e him to the dog right."your fucking joking! My kids have gone over there many times. I even went over there when they got the thing to be sure it was not vicious. The kids have been around the dog many times so tell me how they weren't introduced right. I told the guy my kids will never be allowed near that dog again. Once it bites its not going to stop esspecially the same kid it sees as a threat or a chew toy.
I am following up with humane society. I will make sure that animal is taken from them. I wont sue but that dog will be gone. I don't give a flying flip if they get mad about it.

If my dog bit anyone, including us it would be put down.  No exceptions.
