"Man shoots pit bull dog after it attacks his son. I would have done the same thing. Killed it dead!" - BenHurJudah

When I did my student teaching down in Bacon county, Georgia there was a man that had two black Chows in a cyclone fenced in area of his back yard. He also had a small 2 year old son. They were careful to not let the boy go in the back yard by himself but somehow he got in there by himself and those two dogs chewed the little boy up real bad, especially his face. Anyway the boy lived but his face is all scarred up. I think those dogs were jealous of that boy, the attention the father showed to the boy, and that is a dogs way of dealing with jealousy, to remove the thing they feel jealous of.

Another incident that happened in Knoxville, Tennessee involved a woman that was dog crazy. My friend Brian knew her. She never met a dog she didn't love. She'd roll around with them and wallow with them on the floor. Anyway, she saw a black chow on a chain in someone's back yard and it was in a dog house and she went up to the dog and put her face in the dog house and the Chow jumped at her and bit her neck and she died. That was end of the lady that loved dogs too much.

By the way Chows were bred to be guard dogs. They can be very aggressive.

There must be a "restraint" gene that is weaker in some breeds of dogs than others. In Pitt Bulldogs and Chows the aggression gene is stronger and the restraint biting gene is weaker. At least that is my theory about what is going on.

And never forget that a dog is a jealous animal.
