Re: Boy Saved from Dog Attack by the Family Cat.

The dog was coming back. If Mom wasn't there, the cat could have possibly been killed or ignored and kid gotten attacked again.

The dog is only 8 months old - which means he's a pup. He's not mentally fully confident and is easier to spook.

People were talking about a dog being shot by a cop in the other thread - that dog was 10 months old, two months older than the dog in this video. Biologically it is a puppy, but is the size of an adult and can seriously hurt/kill you.

Socialize your puppies, train your puppies and learn dog behavior, so you know when you have an unstable animal. Knowing and working on the problem BEFORE something happens - even if the solution is to have the pup/dog taken in and euthanized.

The owner clearly had no business possessing a dog. He was still out there when she was on the phone. No control, whatsoever. That is a VERY dangerous type of owner.

Re: Cat Saves Kid from Dog Attack

Great work from the cat.

The dog involved was only 8 months old, kept inside by the neighbours because of its inherently aggressive behaviour. It not only bit the kid, it bit the mother AND the owner as well once it was restrained. It was later euthanised.

This was not a dog that was mishandled or abused; it simply escaped from the house. Rare that a dog so young without an abusive history would be so aggressive, but it's not unheard of. I've personally euthanised two pups younger than 6 months of age as their behaviour had been inherently aggressive and uncontrollable, even with medication. Neither were trained or abused or otherwise encouraged to be aggressive.

Re: Boy Saved from Dog Attack by the Family Cat.

"I've had cats my entire life and they've all been delightful assholes who would probably watch me get murdered and then beg my murderer for a can of wet food before he leaves."

Yeah that pretty much describes most cats, I think.

It's sad that the dog has to be put down because it wasn't properly trained. My mom got a black lab puppy some weeks ago and the first thing we started teaching her was not to bite because that's what babies do. And they learn from playing with other dogs what is just playing and what is an attack. I'm guessing the dog may have viewed the kid as another playmate and didn't realize the damage it was doing.

Re: Boy Saved from Dog Attack by the Family Cat.

No. That was in no way, playful behavior. Nothing about the body language said "play".

That was an intentional attack. Playing dogs, even untrained ones, don't do a full bite and thrash (on flesh) during play. Never.
That move is to injure and kill.

He seemed pent up with energy and was probably frustrated. Many dogs release that frustration through predatory behavior.

He may have hated the boy. If the dog is behind the fence and the kid is riding past him regularly, the dog may have reacted to it as teasing, which causes frustration also. So, the second he's loose and sees the kid, he goes for him. That happens often.

Or the dog was frustrated and just went for the first thing he saw. Also happens often

That's what happens when they don't have an outlet for energy. You can't have a medium to high energy dog and not do anything with it. It's often like lighting the fuse on a bomb. Frustration makes all creatures crazy.

Re: Boy Saved from Dog Attack by the Family Cat.

The dog may not have been around children and gotten freaked out by how fast one moves.

I find it amazing because cats usually have that, "fuck you," attitude, except when they want to be cuddled. Still a great story!

Never a cop around to shoot the dog when you need one.

Vicious mongrel bastard of a dog. The owner should be charged as well, i don't believe there were no signs of the dog being vicious beforehand.
