WATKINSVILLE, OCONEE COUNTY GA - A 7-YEAR-OLD GIRL WAS MAULED BY AN AMERICAN BULLDOG MIX THAT HER FAMILY HAD ADOPTED A MONTH EARLIER



A 7-year-old Watkinsville girl survived a savage attack by the family’s dog on Saturday, according to a Watkinsville Police report.

The girl was transported by ambulance to Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center and later released with at least 20 staples to her head, according to the report.
“The good news is all the injuries were to the back of the head and not to her face, but that was bad enough,” Watkinsville Police Chief Lee O’Dillon said Tuesday.
The attack occurred shortly after 2 p.m. on Concord Drive in Bishop’s Vineyard subdivision. Family members had to pull the dog off the child, according to the report.
“All the kids had been playing with it and for some reason it snapped,” O’Dillon said about the attack. The family had adopted the large  AMERICAN BULLDOG MIX  about a month earlier, he said.
Oconee County First Responders treated the girl prior to her being taken to the hospital, while Oconee County Animal Control responded and took possession of the dog.

It's all in how they're raised, but please, take this shelter American Bulldog, and trust that it was raised right.

People that adopt these dogs ARE IDIOTS!

Pit bulls were created and bred to kill... same as American Pit bull dogs.

These dogs are dangerous because they were bred to be dangerous.

Why are we still breeding pit bulls?

The majority of people breeding pitbulls don't own property, don't have insurance, don't have any money, don't give a damn about what happens to their puppies, and can't be held financially responsible for the carnage their dogs make. We don't have pauper's prison. In fact, I think most people breeding pitbulls are irresponsible idiots. There is no law against idiocy.
