"Friendly" Pit Bull Attack

Please, may I have your attention!?!?


 Here is yet another story of a "wonderful, docile family pet" who just happened to kill a 3 day old infant with no provocation. Reported by CNN News.

Investigators are trying to figure out why a family's pit bull described as a "very loving dog" attacked a 3-day-old baby in Arlington Sunday night.

Police said they when they arrived at the home on Dickson Road in Arlington at 10:40 p.m., the baby was being transported to Shands Jacksonville Medical Center, where the boy died.

The baby's father told news reporters that he and his family are devastated by the loss of their new son, Justin Valentin. He said the dog attacked the baby on the bed while the mother took a shower.

"I don't know what happened," the father, Mark Valentin, said. "My wife went to the restroom and the dog got to the baby. We're not neglectful parents."

The father said he and his family are grieving over the loss of their child.

Valentin said that the dog never showed any signs of aggression toward anyone in their family.

When will people wake up and realize this breed of dogs are not safe? I am a dog lover. But give a a friggin' break.

The update on Buck the beloved Bassett is: 
Buck is still having seizures,  increasing in severity, due to his unprovoked pit bull attack.  This show quality animal will never lead a normal life again.  However, the loss of being show quality is not the issue, observing him during the numerous siezures  is the gut-wrenching outcome of this needless attack, sitting back being totally helpless.
