ROTTWEILER ATTACKS TODDLER!!!
by Daniel McElroy Jr.


In honor of Dog Bite Prevention Week, we are posting this video on what NOT to allow your kids to do to ANY dog.

Headlines like the one above grab readers’ attention and sell newspapers. What they don’t do is tell the whole story. In this video, we see a young child doing very bad things to a Rottweiler with the encouragement of, presumably, the child’s parents. This video had me on the edge of my seat and not in a good way. I kept saying to myself, “This is where she is going to bite…This is where she is going to bite…” For the record, we didn’t film it and we don’t know who did. It came to us through social media.



Amazingly, this dog never did bite the child. She showed outstanding tolerance, even though she was clearly uncomfortable with the child jumping up and down on her back. When she moved away, the parents went so far as to encouraged the child to chase the dog and keep harassing her.

This video represents every thing that is wrong with being an uneducated dog owner. The humans were just having a great laugh while not recognizing that they were putting their chid and their dog in grave danger.

If you want to own a dog, any dog, be it a Rat Terrier or a Rottweiler, please take the time to become educated on your breed of choice and learn a little about dogs in general. Don’t be these people.
