I have a dog.... he's a big old bucket of love.... but still ... at 109 lbs. he is intimidating to people who don't know him and therefore don't know that he's really a teddy bear. I keep my dog in my yard and when we are out in public he is on a leash and under my control. I also keep my fence gates padlocked so no kids in the neighborhood can open the gates.
In the five years I've had my dog he's only gotten out once... because I left the gate open. A neighbor called me to tell me he was down running around her house and that she tried to grab him... but he was too quick. I went flying out my front door to go get him... and wouldn't you know it... he was standing on the front porch with a ****-eating guilty grin on his face.
No matter how much I love dogs..... they shouldn't be wandering free. My biggest fear when my dog got out was that someone would shoot him.... if that happened it would have been TOTALLY my fault.... I'm responsible for keeping him home and under my control and safe.
Don't EVEN get me started on people who let their cats run free.....

Are you noticing EMS treated and left ? The girl in the video ... see any marks ?
A dog that size could have killed her easily in that time frame. So, I"m really wondering how serious an attack it was, if....
Also, I do have issue with Mom going out with the gun after everyone is safe, and the "dog was just standing there"....... so she shot.
This one is just not passing the smell test with me.

I have five dogs. They are family members. If they make a bad bite I will shoot them. There are just some things I won't tolerate.

If your dog comes into my yard and gets aggressive with my kid, you'll be minus one dog; and I won't care if there's not a scratch on my child or if you're standing right there on the sidewalk when it happens. I'm not going to play "wait and see" or delude myself into thinking that a boxer only has two speeds ("Play" and "KILL") with no other levels of aggression in between.

If one of my children (or another child for that matter) is attacked by a dog, it's going down with no hesitation, period.

I will not have one of my children go through life with a scarred or disfigured face due to my inaction just because 'I didn't want to have to shoot an attacking dog".

I was not there. I did not see the attack. If the dog was truly "attacking" her kid the kid would be the worse for wear. I am a huge dog lover. Everyone I know has dogs. It is a general consensus that if anyones dog bites one of our children in a mean spirited way (nips happen when kids play rough) then that dog will need to be put down. Whether that is in the back yard or the pound. I would like to know who lets their 6 yr old and 3 yr old play in the driveway without supervision. Dont get me wrong kids that young can play without supervision in a controlled area such as a fenced in back yard, but in a neighborhood like that in CA? Had they been supervised or in a fenced in yard there would have not been this problem. Who am I to judge?

Maybe I'm wrong, but if you watch the video again, wasn't the girl who was attacked only shown with photos?

I agree with you that if that girl we see...was the one attacked, the boxer was just playing.
Even so, such play can quickly escalate to a vicious attack if a dog senses intense fear and panic. I've witnessed that personally.

I don't have kids... but the kids on my street play out front all the time.... often unsupervised. I live on a small private street with only 5 houses and only one way into our street. There is no through traffic and we look out for each other. As much as I love dogs.... if I saw a strange dog being aggressive with one of the neighborhood kids I'd do WHATEVER it took to end that .... including putting a bullet in the dogs head if it came to that.

Don't send your dog onto my property and then tell me how I should react. I love dogs but if a strange dog came into my yard and even looked a little threatening then he will have a problem.
