:lol: If only we could avoid all spiders...phew...moving car...aeroplane running for the parachute... :shock:

The story about your mate is very funny. I'm glad his thumb is ok now, perhaps he could opt for a matching pair. :oops: :wink:

That's fine when a dog is ON a lead, but so often they are off the lead.

Hi Andrew54

Agreed! I regard having a dog as a responsibility, having a big dog is a big responsibility.

Having said that, I feel that a small dog is more likely to bite than a big one, probably got more to prove, more likely to get away with it. Any dog that has a tendancy to bite will/should have been dealt with a long time ago.

But .... a dog will do his duty as he sees it, and if that means seeing off someone he (wrongly) regards as a threat, that is what he will do. He won't be given the chance to explain his motives. It seems, for reasons that you don't understand, dogs find you a threat. Which is a shame.

Any comments I give here are my own opinions, for legal advise check with a qualified solicitor.

Terrible story, but there is genuine remorce there.
I cant help thinking if this would have been a 'Bull' breed - it would probably have been hyped and made headline news knowing the media! 'Evil Pit Bull type Dangerous Dog savages bunny!'

My advice to anyone with a dog is to become a member of the Dogs Trust, as part of your membership you gain a third party insurance as well as a legal team who specialise in dog/animal law and give advice anytime on any matter dog realted with no limit on the help you get, all as part of your membership, its relatively cheap £30 or under for a years membership, I think last time I looked , they are brilliant and helped me a lot when I had problems with a neighbour and dog related issues. Worth their weight in gold. LLH Hope everything resolved itself, Patterdales are great family dogs if their energies are chanelled in the right direction. LLH

Darn, I was reading all the pages for the bit where it said if your dog gets a cat in your garden it's your fault, anyone seen that? it was mentioned in about the first reply post. My old girl was an expert at catching them, but my new two haven't got one so far - however, it's only a matter of time before my youngest does. Point me to the right link someone please so I know for real what the deal is.

In short: yes. Dogs are not stupid, they can tell the difference between different species and a dog that kills a rabbit is in no way whatsoever more likely from that point to attack a child.

They smell different, look different and sound different.

That goes for dogs that attack other dogs too, it does not mean that a child will be next, far from it.
