DELRAY BEACH FL - A BULLDOG MIX CHARGED INTO A YARD AND ATTACKED A WOMAN GETTING READY TO WALK HER 3 SMALL DOGS - HER SHIH TZU WAS KILLED AND HER WHEATON TERRIER HAD A CHUNK TAKEN OUT OF ITS EAR

A Delray Beach woman said she was ready to take her three dogs for a walk on Thanksgiving when a neighbors’ dog came bounding down Northwest Seventh Court into her yard and grabbed her Shih Tzu, Krissy, by the neck.

"We had no chance. This dog was going to kill," Carrie Childs said.
Childs said she watched in horror as the dog shook 9-pound Krissy in its mouth and flung her to the ground.
Childs said the dog went for her Wheaton Terrier, Beau, next.
"In that time, a woman from the house came over with a Taser and had to tase the dog several times to calm it," Childs said.
Childs said when the large dog let go, it took a chunk of Beau's ear. Childs' husband took Beau to a veterinarian, but little Krissy wasn't moving.
Krissy died in her arms
"Our house is quiet now," Childs said. "She was our little sergeant."
The BULLDOG MIX  that attacked the dogs was taken to animal care and control, and the bulldog's owners decided to put him down Monday morning, Capt. Dave Walesky said.
"The dog was under a dangerous dog classification because we now have two separate incidents of the dog inflicting severe injury on a domestic animal," Walesky said.
About a month ago, the bulldog bit another small-breed dog at a park, and that pet survived, Walesky said.
The bulldog's owners could not be reached for comment.

This goes to show yet again that the 'dangerous / vicious dog' designations are meaningless. All they do is let some depraved person keep a deranged dog (almost always a pit bull type) so it can maul or kill another time.

We need to start putting down ANY dog the very first time it seriously injures a human or another animal. Not the tiny nicks normal dogs sometimes accidentally make during a purely symbolic scuffle, but any wounds that need more than five stitches and/or require general anesthesia to repair and treat.

99% of the destroyed maulers would be pit bull types, but this would also rid us of all other dogs too that present a threat to us and our loved ones (including our normal pets). It would make people who own deranged dogs be more careful and keep them away from anything they can harm.
