Pit bullsóthey’re so good with children!
Pit Bulls can be safe with kids despite what all the articles of pit bull attacks suggest.
Using common sense, watching your dogs behaviour, and keeping an eye on all interactions between kids and your pit bull will go a long way to preventing any possible accidents or problems.
And finally, Pit Bulls love kids and the two make a perfect combination. High energy wired up kid + high energy wired up Pit Bull = loads of fun and laughter for all involved. :o)
Just make sure your high-energy, wired-up kid doesn’t bump your high-energy, wired-up pit bull, okay?
A 5-year-old girl attacked by a pit bull in a family friend’s backyard in Simi Valley has died, authorities said Monday….
Katya’s mother Katia Todesco said she and her daughter were visiting a friend who was taking care of the pit bull Tuesday. The little girl and the friend’s 13-year-old daughter were playing in the backyard when the 5-year-old bumped into the dog, then was mauled. Her mother heard screams and came outside to find the dog latched on to her daughter.
“It was a horrible attack,” Todesco said Monday. “With my own hands I was pulling the dog’s jaw.”
UPDATE: Sounds like pit bulls are popular dogs in Ventura County…
It was only the second time a dog has killed a Ventura County resident in Jenks’ 36-year career with the county, she said. The only other time Jenks could recall was in the mid-1990s, when a family’s pit bull bit and killed an infant in the living room of an east county home, she said.
On the night Katya was attacked, a different pit bull killed another dog on Lysander Avenue in Simi Valley, and yet another pit bull bit a woman on her legs on Ballard Street, Jenks said. Both dogs were taken to the animal shelter, and the owner of one immediately agreed to have it destroyed. Simi Valley police did not report any of the attacks to the media.
