Pit Bulls and Kids Don’t Seem to Mix – Consider This When Choosing A Family Dog

As much as we all love dogs here at Bloggie Doggie, we urge any family that is considering a dog to please think about the possible unprovoked aggressiveness of some breeds.  We know that some people raise Pit Bulls without any issues, but just like raising a Tiger, as some who raise exotic pets, there are some innocent situations that seem to arise that make a natural instinct for some animals take over.  This happens time and time again with Pit Bulls.  You never hear of incidents with Labrador Retrievers or Golden Retrievers attacking kids … quite the opposite … they are usually saving people.  Please, please consider carefully when there are small children in the home.

As reported on January 11, 2010 in the California newspapers:  “A 3-year-old California boy was mauled to death by his family’s pit bull over the weekend at his home in Apple Valley.  Police responding to an emergency call Saturday afternoon found Omar Martinez unresponsive and took him to Saint Mary Medical Center in Apple Valley where he was pronounced dead two hours later.”

We are very sorry to hear about Omar and we extend our deepest sympathies to his family.
