Help for our Family dog.
On July 14 I got home from shopping, I seen my two boys playing in the yard…Through the gate i started talking to them and joking…They were so happy with their tails wagging and jumping around. I went inside and put the groceries away and sat down to relax on the sofa. I seen these two blonde boy running across the street with a long stick..
I thought to myself uh oh looking they did something wrong…(may have or might not have). A few minutes later i heard screams like children playing. Not thinking much of it i continued to watch t.v. It wasn’t until the screams got louder that i ran outside to see what was happening..My elder neighbor came running saying there was a dog attack. I told him well its not mine i was just playing with them. My daughter rushed out to see if she could help…All hell broke loose.
Someone opened our back for what ever reason and let my dog out…He is a pitbull…Before you pass judgement, he is not a vicious dog..I say this because we heard that a lady was yelling and screaming that he being a pitbull he should not be allowed to live to kill him, hit him with a heavy pipe. My baby is not aggressive at all. He lives with his brother another pitubull, a two year old and 8 year old. he is never in trouble except for the occasional stealing from the cats bowl.
Now because of all of this and the screaming im am assuming it scared him and for some reason or another he either bit or scratched a man in the ear. Because i wasnt there when it happened i got a lot of hearsay from people..The police were not informative at all. Although when i did try to go find out, 4 or 5 woman surrounded me screaming in my face and a officer stood in front of me and had to scream at them to back off. My elder neighbors surrounded us with amazing support and backed up our baby that he was a gentle dog who made no noise except to wrestle with his brother…My delima is…He was taken for 21 days on probation to watch his behavior. In no way shape or form was this his doing. He was in HIS yard playing.. its very enclosed and secure. The gate that was opened is very heavy it has to be unlocked with a slide lock on the inside and then lifted to be opened.
I want to know if anyone has dealth with anything like this and the out come…He has a loving family and his brother is already showing signs of depression from him not being here. If anyone anyone had seen anything that could help him come home please post it here and i will msg you. Yes i know at the end of the day he bit someone. He bit and there were stitches involved..it wasn’t bad but i know, i myself would be traumatized by a dog bite of any size..Im so sorry.
He is not like that please understand this. My heart is breaking but im also so angry with whoever let him out….your had no right to come into my yard…(i was told teenagers come in looking for bottles). To the lady with the pipe that hit him yelling that he had should be killed because of his breed..please educate yourself..you have small dog as well but know if that baby was cornered he would also defend himself and i would never ever yell for any animal to be killed because of what he looks like. If you were all so terrified of him why did you stand there that night hugging him and petting refusing to let me hold him? Yes eventually did just take him and hold him till they took him away.
I know this is a long story but my heart is so broken and im praying my baby will come home to us. If you need to vent over pit-bulls here go right ahead…but remember he is a part of our family and we love him as you love your little ones.
