Contractor brings dog to job site, attack occurs

Today, we want to talk about a relatively minor dog bite incident that exemplifies some of the inappropriate thinking that many dog owners can succumb to. The incident did not occur here in Pennsylvania, but instead in Massachusetts. A contractor that owns a pit bull mix brought his dog to a job site. He did not have the dog on a leash and he thought that his dog would be okay at the job site.

Dog attacks and pins 9-year-old, who suffers injuries

About three months ago, we wrote a story about a 9-year-old that was attacked by a dog. In that story, we mentioned that even though it happened outside of Pittsburgh, the circumstances could have happened anywhere. And here we are, now reporting on a different 9-year-old that was attacked by a dog in Pittsburgh.

After attack, dog in Vermont ordered to take behavioral training

An 11-year-old boy was attacked by a 10-month old puppy outside of the state of Pennsylvania recently. Thankfully, the boy didn't suffer any serious injuries in the attack, at least not by what is described in the source article. However, the story is notable for the way the state of Vermont, where the dog bite incident occurred, handles their dog bite cases.

9-year-old bitten by pit bull

A dog bite story out of Kansas City could have happened anywhere in America, given its all-too-familiar details. The story involves a 9-year-old child that had just arrived at a park with his father. The child was skating with his father when a pit bull suddenly charged the boy and bit him on the upper part of his arm. He suffered injuries that are detailed in the story, though thankfully they aren't life-threatening. It appears the 9-year-old will be fine.

Police search for dogs after 5-year-old attacked

While the following story didn't occur here in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, it will send shivers down the spine of any parent. Three dogs are being sought by police after at least one of them was involved in an attack on a 5-year-old girl. The extent of the girl's injuries are not known at this time, but the property where the dog attack occurred is owned by a 48-year-old who owns 12 dogs.

Victims of dog bites can suffer serious injuries

Dogs are man's best friend, and when they are properly trained and controlled, they can be loving members of a family and, really, of a community. But not every dog owner is responsible and not every dog owner properly disciplines and trains their pet. These dogs can turn out to be aggressive, and they are more likely to push boundaries. As a result, they can cause significant, and even fatal, injuries to unsuspecting and innocent people.
