Saturday morning, the family of 7-year-old Joslyn said she was playing in her front yard with her brother and mother when A STRAY DOG that had been staying with the family for a few days suddenly attacked.


Director of Animal Services for Hardin County Debbie Nowicki said the scene Saturday morning was among the most aggressive she’s ever seen. The girl’s mother and 13-year-old brother were also hurt in the attack.
The family had taken in the dog just days before and said there weren’t any signs of aggression.

“Usually with an aggressive dog, there’s some sort of indication before an event happens that would cause you to be cautious around a dog,” Nowicki said. “This particular dog, it’s my understanding, in the previous days, had shown no indication of aggression at all and had been described as a big sweetheart.”

That’s a description Joslyn’s aunt, Carline Gutherie, echoed.

“It could sit. It could roll. It could shake. You know, basic commands that somebody has worked with this dog,” Gutherie said. “It’s just awful. Horrific."
                                                                                                                 Joslyn has received injuries to her shoulder,  buttocks, her forearm, her hand. It did some damage to the finger and the left leg.”
Family members said even though the outpouring of support has been overwhelming, they want to find whose dog is capable of mauling the little girl.

“With an animal that size, that strength, these dogs need to be registered,” Gutherie said. “They just need to be held responsible for their dog.”
While the owner could face charges in this incident, authorities said the entire situation is troubling.

“Someone spent a great deal of time training and nurturing this dog, and it causes me concern because I’d like to know, was this dog trained to be anything other than a good dog?” Nowicki said.

As of Monday night, family members said Joslyn was still in a Nashville hospital in critical condition.

Authorities said Joslyn’s brother and mother were treated for injuries and released from a local hospital this weekend. They say without her brother fighting the dog, things could have been much worse.

Oh, yes. The person that trained the pit bull normal dog tricks, also spent just as much time teaching it to maul little girls. It has nothing to do with being a pit bull.

I feel sorry for the little girl. It's crazy to think that taking in a stray could put you, or a loved one, in the hospital. That's the way it goes when you have nutters running Animal Control.

In addition to mauling - it also played Frisbee

Perhaps those were not "Tricks" it was taught but special evasive Ninja maneuvers for the pit fighting ring.....

You just can not fix stupid.

Amazing the effort that goes into avoiding calling this dog a pitbull. Who cares how many other breeds it contains, as soon as you add pitbull blood, you have the classic hold and shake, persistent attack, the sudden viciousness with no prior warning, the friendly one minute, kill a kid the next...classic PITBULL attack. The attempts to cover up the pitbull problem by the evil pitbull lobby will fail with every attack, and eventually society will rid themselves of this stinking disease of a breed, but too late for the innocent victims of pitbulls, who, of course will be minimized, ignored, and blamed by the subhuman pit idiots.
