COSTA MESA CA - A PIT BULL BEING FOSTERED BY A NEIGHBOR ATTACKED AN 11-YEAR-OLD BOY

An 11-year-old boy was taken to the hospital after a dog his neighbor was fostering attacked him in Costa Mesa, police said.
The boy was walking down the street at about 7:15 p.m. in the 1000 block of Nancy Lane when he passed by his neighbor’s house, where the front door was left open, said Costa Mesa Sgt. Jerry Souza.
A dog, identified as a  PIT BULL  being fostered by the boy’s neighbors, came outside and saw the boy who was scared and started to run away. The dog chased the boy and bit him on his right leg. Some of the lacerations were four to six inches in length.
The boy was taken to Kaiser Permanente in Irvine for evaluation.
The dog was impounded and quarantined while animal control conducts an investigation into the dog’s history and vaccine status. It is unclear whether it will be euthanized.

Please don't euthanize the pit bull. It was temperament tested at the shelter and it showed no signs of aggression and it's a therapy pit bull and it was just protecting its property and there was a thunderstorm in the area and it never showed aggression before and its all in how you raise them and the little boy shouldn't have been scared because pibble is super friendly and if he didn't run away the pit bull would have licked him to death and the pit bull was just neutered and I have 27 pit bulls and they've never harmed anyone and we can't just go around euthanizing pit bulls because it came from a NO KILL shelter.

It's okay if the pit bull kills, it's not okay to kill a pit bull. GOT IT?!
