|Baby, i find it sad that you would shoot a dog over it knocking someone down, The dog is in a fight, you think it knows you are trying to help? If i was a dog and someone tried to hold me like that i would probably try to push him off too, in the dogs mind, you are holding it down giving the other dog the upper hand to hurt it.It's not like the pit bull was intentionally trying to hurt the officer. The dog didn't redirect and bite the officer, the dog simply knocked him down, if you're a police officer you should be able to handle being knocked down by a 40-60lb dog. (Pit bulls aren't "big dogs") His GSD, was probably bigger and meaner than the APBT.He didn't even allow the dogs owner to try and intervene. Trying to pull off a dog once, and getting knocked down is not enough, if the dog didn't redirect as soon at the officer grabbed him chanced are he wasn't going to. I've separated a lot of dog fights in my day i have 2 dogs who cannot see each other period i keep them separate all the time because of the fights they use to get them. And no matter the breed, if they are in a fight simply trying to "pull" them off is not enough and can end up causing more harm than good..
Question, if a happy but untrained lab came and jumped on a police officer and knocked him down only to lick his face, should that dog also be shot?
Yes it is a police K9, but it's still a dog, the GSD(100lbs vs apbt 40-60lbs) could handle itself in a fight for a few mins while the owner tried to separate the dogs, the GSD was not yet in a life threatening situation and when the pit bull was killed, the GSD did not have a mark on her. There were 3 people on the seen are you trying to tell me that 3 people couldn't figure out how to separate 2 dogs. Why didn't one officer grab a hold of his dog, and allow the owner to grab a hold of his?
