|Someone mentioned if the police dog was well trained they could of called her off of what she was attacking. They could have, but what about the pit bull that had a hold of the shepherd? Most pits once in a fight, weather they started it or not will not willingly retreat or easily let go once they have a hold of whatever they are attacking. It even says they could not get the pit off of the canine officer.
Years ago our pug was attacked by a friends pit bull. The pit grabbed him by the neck and shook him like a rag doll. Four or more men tried to pull him off of our pug, and he wouldn't let go. His owners tried calling him off, he wouldn't let go. My dad started punching him in the ribs while my uncle tried to pull the dog off and he wouldn't let go. THEN my uncle began kicking him in the head with steel toed boots and he still would NOT let go. They had to shove a water hose down his throat and turn it on to get him off. Not the best way to handle the situation, but everyone panicked and did what they had to do to save the pug. The pit bull was FINE afterwards.
Even if the officers called the shepherd off, some of you should consider that it is possible pit was not letting the canine officer get away. Pits don't have any quit in them, which can be the best thing about them, but it can also be the thing that gets them in trouble and even blamed in certain situations. Sure some of you may have pits that are so well trained you could call you can call them off a fight in a second, but most people don't. I own a dog who is half pit so don't think I'm hating or bashing on pit bulls. I love the breeds.
Out on walks a GSD has tried to attack Chewy before. A GSD mix at the park also tried starting a fight, and another GSD tried to attack my cousin while he was out. I don't hold anything against the breed either. I've had more bad experiences with GSDs that pits. I still love the breed.
I also don't really agree with what some have said that if a it had been another breed it would have went down differently. Maybe it could have, because if a Golden Retriever got into a fight with the canine officer, they could have gotten the Golden Retriever off a lot quicker. But if they couldn't the Golden Retriever probably would have gotten shot too.
