Dog bites can be extremely serious, especially if they happen to children. They can even be deadly. A dog who is overly playful or sees a child as a threat will not hold back. Owners must be held responsible for the actions of their animals.
One man is now in hot water and a mother in sorrow after her two children were attacked by Rottweiler dogs. The man and the mother are dating and the children were staying at the man’s house while the mom was working. The man let the dogs out of the kennel so he could clean it out.
He went into his home for a moment, came out, and saw that the children were being attacked. He helped the children get into a car and the dogs corralled before he took them to the hospital. One of the children, a six year old, had to be airlifted to a trauma center.
The dogs are now under the control of the Catawba Animal Shelter.
Although dogs have been domesticated for millennia, some breeds are more prone to attack than others. However, that impulse can be curbed with proper training by owners. Unfortunately, two girls are now paying the price for a brief moment of inattention.
