A 6 week old puppy mauled the infant? This really seems unbelievable.

Wow. I can see how a puppy that age would bite an infant that was left unattended, but kill it? That seems odd to me. How can all those people be in the house and not hear the baby screaming? That poor baby.

I wonder where they had the baby, if the baby was in a crib I doubt that either of those dogs could have jumped in. So sad for the little baby.

I'm sorry but I'm extremely skeptical of this one. I fully agree that children and dogs should not be unattended together because accidents can and do happen but for a puppy to kill a baby... I can't see that even being physically possible except in a manner that would take a very long time and any parent who was conscious would have heard in time to stop.

Age doesnt make a different IMO, and the grandmother was there who is obvisouly not a kid.

I am sorry there is NO way that a puppy would kill a baby
IMO there is more to the story like the parents maybe doing something they shouldn't be and something happened to baby

Very fishy to me. How could a six week old pup kill a infant? and you better bet the dam parents blamed everything on the poor pup. When you think you have heard it all you hear about something like this.

I doubt that

So only teenagers who have kids are irresponsible parents? ok sure there isnt ANYONE over the legal age that isnt irresponsible and all the kids that have ever died from a dog attack are all kids of other kids....SURE, ok

ive been thinking, and looking at my sons swing. Cause thats where they said the baby was, was in a swing....


There is no way our 20lb small mutt could get to Aiden in his swing. He can lick his foot, or maybe his hand if he has it hanging down, but there isnt anyways he can get to him in the swing, esp. if it is swinging.


Now, maybe I can see a travel swing that sits lot to the ground, but even then it would be difficult for a small dog to really get to the child, esp. if it is swinging.

Could the child of died from something else before hand and then the dogs decided to play with the baby? Is that possible that they looked at him like a toy?

I wonder what the autopsy will say.

i'm another one that highly doubts that the puppy did it, but i just wanted to point out that the black lab puppy appears well over 6 weeks. i'd say its at least 3 months, depending on what he's mixed with.

I doubt it is as they said as well. I feel bad for the child but it sounds really fishy to me.

Here's an update on the story, the black lab puppy has been euthanized. I hope that no one thinks I am minimizing the tragic death of the baby, but it seems that something is missing from the big picture.

I just clicked on the news report on CNN that showed a policeman carrying the wagging lab pup away (the policeman was petting the dog as he carried it, as anyone with a heart would). It sure looked younger than 8 weeks to me. The pug that was also in the house is not being blamed.
Agree, something doesn't smell right here.

I am so sorry for the family involved - no matter what happened, someone lost a precious child.
