HERE'S ONE LINK WHERE THEY TRY TO PASS THIS DOG OFF AS A GREAT DANE MIX - http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/04/24/dog-kills-california-baby-in-apparent-accident-police/


The parents of the 3-day-old boy told authorities they were watching television in bed with the child and their "MIXED BREED AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER"  in their Flanders Drive residence about 8 p.m. Thursday when the mother coughed, startling the animal and causing it to bite the infant, according to San Diego police.
The couple took the gravely wounded baby to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Sgt. Tu Nguyen said.
Detectives were investigating the fatality, though it “appears to be just a tragic accident,” the sergeant said.
The county Department of Animal Services took custody of the 2-year-old dog, a neutered male named Polo. The canine will undergo a 10-day quarantine to make sure he is not rabid, after which he will be euthanized unless his owners decide to reclaim him, DAS spokesman Dan DeSousa said.
The dog had no known prior history of dangerous aggressiveness, DeSousa said.

Poor little baby.

Oh come on. Coughing? People really can say that with a straight face? I saw this headline in an online "newspaper" and almost spit my coffee on the keyboard. I know I am hoping for too much to think that there is not a person on the planet that would believe that.

As for the ever changing label of the dog- I just can not stand this. Even worse John Q Public buys into it because "rescues" and pounds deliberately do this to market their dogs. There is now not a day when I go out into public where I do not encounter them.

Last night I was looking into a place to board my little dogs. I have always had a house sitter before. I thought I had a great place all picked out until I happened upon their Facebook page and saw them being thanked for taking in "7 Pitties" onto their property for a local pit pushing group. I am fully aware that there is no kennel in the world where there is zero margin of error and am back to trying to find a house sitter. I tried googling "kennels that do not allow pit bulls" and came up with nothing.

A tragic accident that keeps on happening all across the country. How many tragedies does it take before we start preventing said tragedies?

If you look at the big picture, pit bulls are a huge problem. If you look locally, it's easy to think that it's abnormal for a dog to kill a baby. However, nanny dogs are killing babies at an alarming rate. It's not an isolated incident, but the nutters want you to think it is.

I feel terrible for the child, but the parents can rot in hell along with their killer pit bull. It's not rabid by the way. Pit bulls kill perfectly fine without having rabies. AND WHAT IS WITH GIVING THE PSYCHOPATH PARENTS THE OPTION OF REGAINING THEIR BABY KILLER IF IT DOESN'T HAVE RABIES? I am so disgusted with pit bull worshipers!

The kennels know what will happen to them if they advertise that they won't take pits. Maybe try looking for a kennel that only takes small dogs...

Now they have been scrambling to change the dog breed to "Great Dane mix" how nice of them to try and throw another breed under the bus! De Sousa stated " he doesn't want to stereo type any dog breed, and no one knows what the dog was thinking" Duh! That's what defines a breed- their own breed specific traits and genetics! SD AC has been transformed into a Pit pushing organization- They even have a "Saint Pitties Day $17 adoption special" (and many others) for them. Also another quote by AC when a dog was killed at a local dog beach- "we see this happen about once a week" you guessed it- its usually by a Pitbull
