I am really starting to think this station goes looking for half-truths to twist into stories that get people up arms, pointing fingers in the wrong direction.
This is the same station that blamed Sgt. Robertson for all the "problems" at NAMC a month ago. Never mind the fact that he just got there, and was making huge strides improving things after the damage the nut-case who was there before created. And a staff who did almost nothing, and loved labeling everything over 40 pounds a Pitt-Bull, including Black Labs.
Rather than spinning this in a OMG!! EBIL PIT LOOKEN DAWG!!! HAZ 2 B DANGROUS!!!! way, look to where the problem really lies, in the owner, or the people watching the dog.
American Bulldogs by nature, don't have a violent bone in their bodies. They are a very loving, loyal dog. The only way they will attack is if they think one of their "pack" is in danger, and even then, it would have to be pretty bad. For something like this to happen, either the owner has been abusing the dog long term, or the child was doing something other that "petting the dog"
They don't even know anything about the situation!!! All they know is that the dog bit two people, and is in quarantine. When you need to interview a neighbor who only knows that they were watching the dog to fill up air-space, you know something is wrong.
And am I the only one who rolls their eyes at the "man's best friend" line? If the dog in question had been a Jack Russel, Cocker Spaniel, or some other "cutesy" breed, it wouldn't have even been a blip on their radar.
And on a personal note, the dog is a dead-ringer of Fiona, so she got an extra biscuit tonight.
If there is any confusion about the neighbor or what the dog looks like, I'm also referring to the the video.
