(another 4 yr old pays the price) Why are parents so clueless about pit puppy danger ? ? ? ? TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- The mother of a 4-year-old boy whose foot was mauled by the family's pit bull puppy was charged with child endangering, authorities said Saturday. Martina Jennings, 23, took her son to a hospital Friday because his foot was bleeding and told authorities she saw blood on the dog's face and chest, Lucas County Dog Warden Tom Skeldon said. The foot was amputated.
Proper decorum prevents me from answering your question the way I really want to. It is the parents fault for bringing a dog home that they obviously had no control over and leaving the child alone with him. They should both be charged and do time for their behavior. And please, do not tell me that they were not at fault. Also, I have heard enough of the "they are such nice dogs" argument and how they are mistreated and how it's this or that person's fault or the media. They are not the type of dogs that belong in a family situation. They are unpredictable and most of them have crap genetics. It is time that something is done about this situation. No child should ever have to suffer because of a dog. Now we have a 4 year old that will grow up without a foot because of a pitt. And please don't tell me that it could have been another dog and we just don't hear about it. We do not hear about it because pitts do it a lot. Enough is enough. And just so there is no misunderstandings, I used to have one and I generaly have nothing against a specific breed, but, like I said, enough is enough.
