What an amazing pup! It’s funny, you hear far more stories like this one than the horrific freak accidents like the others.

For every horror story there are 10 amazing stories going unnoticed. Negative news it what sells.

This post made me smile (but also made me sad that Lilly got hurt). I hope Lilly recovers soon!

Any yet animals aren’t capable of love?  Never convince me of that!

Yay! Much better stories! Thank you for sharing Smile

The dog who killed that child was a Rhodesian Ridgeback who was the dog I had growing up. That dog died while saving my father’s life. They ran early every morning and one morning at 5am there was a drunk driver on the road who swerved out of control and came up on the sidewalk. The dog who was on the inside, came around my father and took or his legs and pushed him out of the way. She took the hit and was killed instantly. She was such a loving member of our family who was protective over all of us.

I love stories like this!

We had a pit bull in our care who looks like a brute, but is the sweetest dog ever. I reached down to get his food and he gave me a huge slimey lick all over my face. I had to go wash my face, but it made me smile.

this is a great dog story, but I am still scared of Pits…I have seen first hand what they can do to other animals and I don’t want to imagine what they would do to a baby.  I know they get a bad rap, but their rap is based on their natural instincts and true nature.  some animals are not meant to be domesticated and I believe this is one of those breeds.

@mija22:  

any breed is capable of acting on animal instincts.

@mija22:  I’m going to politely disagree.  In the vast majority of cases, bad demeanor in a dog is due to the owner, not the dog breed or dog itself.  Some breeds have more natural tendencies toward aggression, like pitbulls, so certain owners that enjoy breeding dogs for fighting or making them “tough” specifically choose pitbulls.  They then create mean pit bulls by treating them badly, dog fighting, etc, and this causes pit bulls to get a bad reputation because there are these bad ones out there….but usually because a person has trained them to be that way.
