Jon Dunnill's dog



A Toronto man wants the city to consider banning canine breeds with a history of aggression after his beloved 12-year-old Havanese was fatally mauled by another dog in their condo.
Jon Dunnill's sister-in-law had been drying off the family's dogs on Tuesday night when his neighbour's dog charged down the hallway and pushed its way into the condo, he said Wednesday.The dog grabbed April, Dunnill's Havanese, in its mouth and began violently shaking her.
"I started to punch it and kick it, but they don't let go," Dunnill said.
"It was literally seconds, but it was too late. She was just ripped open."
The dog involved in the attack has been seized by Animal Services. 
Dunnill said officials told him that his neighbour owned an AMERICAN MASTIFF -- BUT HE SAID HE BELIEVES THE DOG LOOKS MORE LIKE A PIT BULL, a breed that's been banned in Ontario since 2005.
Either way, he would like to see the city or the province reconsider its position on the types of dog breeds that people can legally own.
CBC News tried to contact the neighbour involved, but has yet to receive a response.
The city will conduct a behavioural assessment on the animal that killed Dunnill's dog, Animal Services told CBC. Depending on the outcome, the dog will be destroyed or its owner could face a fine.
If another dog attacks your pet it's best not to get in between the two animals, a trainer who specializes in working with aggressive dog breeds said.
Rob Kirkwood said getting between fighting dogs could result in serious injuries.
Kirkwood suggests dog owners instead carry a spray bottle at the dog park or when going for a walk.
"A little bit of citronella — the same thing we use at the cottage to stop mosquitos — could stop a potential dog fight," he said.

There is simply no dog breed called "American Mastiff". Most likely a Pit Bull with a fictionized name to avoid the ban on the Pit Bull breed.

I typed on Google: Pictures and Info of American Mastiff Dog and many sites came up: and and there are many more sites. They are all monsters to me and I don't care what they call them. The monsters that are being pumped out next door to me would not be called pit bulls by some who say pits are smaller and more terrier-like. It appears that they have a new litter every month and they are BIG MONSTERS. To get a dog that big there has to be some mastiff in its DNA!!! But they call them pit bulls!!! Idiots keep these dogs in small pens 24-7 scratching and going in circles. This morning at 4:30am I was woke up to loud barking. When they howl at a siren during the night, it would awaken the dead! Then we can't get back to sleep after being woke up again and again.

I am trying to get up enough courage to call Decatur City Codes Department and the Health Department. I want to know what is on the black tarp the pit bull breeders placed up against the fence line on their 100 foot lot around January 30. When we first saw it it looked like many, many things most people would call garbage and would place in containers for the truck to pick up. Our subdivision begins on a lower elevation going toward the Tennessee River. It goes up hill as the land goes toward Hartselle and Cullman County. All the lots from the Pit Breeders northward go up hill. Their lot drains down on ours. What ever is piled up on that fence line seeps down on our lot. We saw chunks of dry wall, piles of peanut shells, something orange like carrots, small pieces of plastic, pieces of paper, plastic bottles, etc.etc.etc....AND PILES OF WHAT LOOKED LIKE LARGE DOG FECES(SHIT) I'VE NEVER SEEN ANY NEIGHBOR PILE SOMETHING UP LIKE THAT AND LEAVE IT. The pile now has tall weeds growing out of it.

It's crazy what people do in their yards. Of course, it sounds like what they're doing is illegal, but do you really want to engage the nutters?

Either I missed the video, or it was added later. What a shock, it's a pit bull! Toronto Animal Services can't identify it! Proof that once again, nutters have taken over animal services.

This quote is from an unnamed Canadian rescue idiot.

"There's so many different breeds that are coming into this country, that um, um, I couldn't, you know, some of them I don't even recognize. I can say 'Golden Retrievers' and in 10 years I can have the nastiest most vicious line of dogs, it's how you are breeding them, and what you are doing to them."

Yes, deflect the reality of a pit bull killing another dog by comparing them to hypothetical future nasty Golden Retrievers being capable of killing dogs. Because we all know that breeders of Golden Retrievers are into bringing out the viciousness and nastiness in the animals. It only takes 10 years to achieve that goal, and pretty soon, every single Golden Retriever will be banned from Ontario as well.

So many breeds that can't be identified, yet pit bulls manage to behave the same way in every single country they ever occupy. When a "dog" rips apart another dog for no apparent reason, it's a pit bull. It's not difficult to figure out. Well, it is for some people.

Kirkwood sounds like he's either a nutter or he's mentally challenged.

Ugh! Perhaps this sort of thing is one thing your county will enforce! I honestly don't know what I would do if I were you Decatur. If I couldn't sell my house and the county couldn't or wouldn't do anything I'd probably have poisoned the stupid beasts by now. I don't operate well on chronically interrupted sleep. I don't even like hearing my neighbor's dogs during the day!
