Jasonkil~To answer your question~I find it highly unlikely that this child was being supervised with this dog. I certainly am not an "expert" in the behavior of dogs and those of the people that treat them as "family." But I have been around enough toddlers and dogs to know what to watch for. There are "clues" if you will to what can happen when they are not watch closely. Our dogs were family~were well behaved and trained. When we had the responsibility of caring for kids~especially little kids~some that did were not around dogs~they were watched closely and taught the appropriate way to approach the dogs. From my perspective and life experiences~& as I have commented on other reports concerning children~being parents/ANY one responsible for the safety of children is the most exhausting "job" ever! Many just do not take it as seriously as it is. And to answer what I think you may comment on~I am not "overly protective" just experienced and through that learn the triggers of any child(ren) that are in my care. They all have them as well as dogs. Does not take a PHd or a doctorate to learn this.

Are you kidding me? ( any dog will bite a toddler if there is not a responsible adult watching the interaction.) What if these are responsible people who threat pets like one of their family and was interacting when the dog bit the baby? It just goes to show you that no matter how much we love them and pamper them dogs are animals. Not people, and they are not as predictable as we like tobthinkbthey are.

Any dog will bite a toddler if there is not a responsible adult watching the interaction. Mix the possibility of the little one unattended with a notorious dog for attacking, and there is not surprise. We had dogs when our child was young. Even with its even temper and protective nature, we never left her alone with them. That is what being responsible for kids is about. The report says the dog is in quarantine, probably not up to date on shots. And that they do not know what they are going to do with the dog after the 1o days. Let me guess, a pit bull that bit a kid~not good odds it will have a long life.
