The owners should be cited/ fined and hopefully they will learn to keep an eye on their dog. This could easily have been a GSD, Husky, Rott, or another unsocialized boxer.

I am sorry Pepper was attacked. Hopefully there are no lasting ill effects.
I have to agree, the owner was at fault and the dog will get the blame. He should have been watching his dog, who should have been leashed and stopped it as soon as the dog showed his aggressive approach. Please, not all Pits are like this and thankfully not all pitbull owners are that irresponsible.

I hope pepper is okay!

I do agree that it is the owners fault the pit is the way the pit is. it could be a dalmation, a German Shepard, a rottweiler , etc.

pits have a bad rep and it is a shame. they just have that stigma.

everytime i have been to the dog park, i can honestly say that it is every other dog but the intimidating pitbull that is provoking or starting the fight. My lab was attacked by a rottweiler at the park. (she was okay though, thank GOD.)

I am so glad to hear pepper is okay , and if i were in your shoes i would have kicked the dog too!

If I read the original post correctly, the pit bull did NOT go after Pepper's owner. So why should that dog be euthanized?

There is a very big difference between "dog aggression" and "human aggression".

Dog aggression is understandable, and some say inherent, in pit bull terriers. Human aggression, on the other hand, is completely unacceptable for the breed, and if that pit bull HAD gone after Pepper's owner, then maybe euthanasia is something the irresponsible pit bull owner should consider, before the owner and the dog's behavior get somebody badly injured.

All that aside, I hope Pepper heals quickly.

I hope Pepper's okay! I don't care what breed it is. If a dog comes into my yard unleashed, and attacks one of my dogs, I'm calling the police and pressing charges - against the owner. At that point, it's out of my hands what happens to the dog. My dog will, and always will, come first.

I agree. Your dog shouldn't have to be frightened, especially on their property!! Poor Pepper. I really hope the owner realizes and keeps his dog on a leash from now in.

Many years ago before, as a deputy sheriff, I had to shoot an aggressive Pit Bull that was set on me by a local dog fighter.
I felt really bad.
But I blamed the owner not the dog.

Recently Tank had a Pit Bull at Petsmart take a leap at him.
I knew Boxers used their paws, but Tank knocked that dog off its feet and into the dog toys with one good right paw swipe!
This happened because the Pit's owner was letting leash out so the dog could leap forward.
Again, owner's fault.

But now I wonder have Pit Bulls been so deeply bred for aggressiveness that finding a "safe" one is nigh on impossible?

Glad Pepper is ok!

Thanks for all the well wishes! Pepper is back to her old self but unfortunately the dog is right next door barking constantly which of course goes through the walls of our house. So she's a little scared in her own house sadly. The HOA doesn't seem to want to write back a response and I left them a message. It's just a matter of time before that side gate is left open or someone there forgets to close it all the way and the dog will be free. It'll happen. Just hope I'm not the one around when it does. I'm afraid to even let my daughter play out front as she usually does. We don't have a sense of the freedom anymore. I wish I was a lawyer and could contact the homeowners insurance company to see if Pit Bulls are covered under his rental policy. I'd like to contact him too! This sucks that Pepper is jumpy in her own house and as is my daughter. She saw what happened to Pepper and she alludes to it maybe happening to her. What kind of life is that as WE the homeowners have to be cautious of what our neighboor is doing?
