Man Gives Pit Bull a Bone for Christmas, Dog Kills Him!
"A 40-year-old man who gave his pit bull a rawhide bone as a Christmas gift was attacked and killed by the dog."
I give Mandy, my pit bull mix, huge three-foot bones on a regular basis, and she gives me sloppy kisses in gratitude. For Christmas she ate ham, mashed potatoes, dinner rolls, she basically ate everything I did.
I commend this gentleman for remembering his pooch on Christmas, and I certainly lament his sad fate. There must be something else to the story; a dog just doesn`t attack his owner for no reason. Was the canine sick or mistreated by his owner or a previous owner? Was the dog bred to fight?
I hope this tragic story doesn`t dissuade anyone from adopting a pit bull, they aren`t any more aggressive than any other breed. In fact, my pooch is the sweetest dog I`ve ever owned, all my neighbors pet her when I take her for a walk.
Adopt a pooch from your local animal shelter today!
