The owner will have to find that kind of money. Maybe they should have thought of that before their dog was allowed access to the front door?
I would have to sue them

I'm sorry to hear this. I hope you guys are ok! I'm glad your dog fought back, lots of times dogs are just severely beaten by pit bulls. I don't mind the pit bull as a breed, I've owned them, but they are not for everybody. Problem is everybody breeds them with no thought on nerves or anything, and everybody is able to buy them and things like this happen. They are known to be dog aggressive, so you have to take precautions when owning them.this is why they are being banned now! Irresponsible ownership! I'm sorry you're a victim to this and I hope it works out in your favor.

I know some lawyers will give 30 min. consultations for free - why not see what they have to say? And using a chain, rather than a proper leash with a secure handle? Seriously?! This is only going to get worse.

the dog has been euthanized.

Why would someone offer to rehab a dog that bites a child then go ahead and put a child in harms way.

Problem here too is the dog does not have a secure yard, open door and hook it to a chain...where I live to the location of dog is barely 5 min walk...

I go out my door, cross rd. through a school parking lot, down a small street (3houses on either side), cross rd. library, house where dog lives.

The dog has to go. I don't have a secure yard, so we're not safe on my deck

Sorry to hear about this. I hope you guys will be OK. I have also been there. My best boy Mac [RIP] was attacked on my property. His front legs ended up in stitches with full leg bandages. Pit bull died from his wounds. It's a long story and it was years ago before people were really taking notice of the worst type of dunderheads that were breeding for the cruelest insanity of the pit fights. Too bad the breed suffers from this. I hope you get what you want. Don't let the pit bull owner rest.

Not 3 blocks, just one good size block (a square), about a 10 min walk around

I would seriously get a lawyer involved. I tell you why. This dog will get loose and do it again, but next time, it may be a kid and that's not going to end well. You have the chance to do something about it right now. I would get a lawyer and get him or her involved with the authorities and get that dog picked up and properly quarantined until your suit gets settled.

Absolutely! There's no way I'd want that kind of attacking dog loose in my neighborhood either. If people want to manage these dogs, then go ahead. If people want to own these dogs with zero responsibility involved on their part...bleep that!!!

I appreciate every ones comments, however, I don't want to live in fear of retaliation...I was told the Health Inspector would bring SPCA with him and was hoping they would deem the dog banned, held in custody at owners expense, with the requirements to prove the dog is not a Pit Bull. Easy, as the reason PH got involved was bite report from hospital.

He didn't bother bringing SPCA. Now the onus lies on me. That now makes me the bad guy.

I don't want to live in fear, either way, dog or human.

I have a Witness #
she was horrified and in tears as she watched what happened, she drove and tracked me down as we walked home after incident. She offered me an alcohol wipe to clean my hand.

She suggested rescue remedy for me and g (so cute and ironic re: natural remedies)

Maybe she could report
