My sympathy goes out to the family who tried to do a good thing and take in a dog.
All dogs have the potential to be dangerous, even my beloved JRT….so please pick carefully as the right dog brings so much joy to a household…
I never let mine off a lead when out.
He is introduced to people slowly, and we warn them to be careful as he could turn. He never has and is the softest, dopiest dog of any I have seen…but it only takes a split second.
I inform people not to touch his luvvies as they are his and his alone.
Rules are needed….but I should imagine the family never thought this would happen…it is so terribly terribly sad.
Such a horrible tragedy.
