I am hearing the story second hand, but the wife of a friend's brother just recently had a baby, and they put their dog up in a boarding facility during the birth. When he went to pick up the dog, she was bleeding from one eye and had blood coming from her nose and mouth. Facility claimed not to know anything. He took the dog to a vet, who said she had signs of severe strangulation, internal bleeding, and was missing skin and fur around her neck due to a rope used as a collar. Went back to the facility, who claimed it was the result of a new person giving the dog a bath and not knowing how to control her (we're talking about a 40 pound dog here). The dog may need to be put down. Things are hectic with the new baby and they are hesitant to get into a lawsuit, but I'm hopeful they'll at least take pictures and spread the word around. If the story is accurate this place needs to be shut down.

Thanks for the thoughtful comments guys. Oscar is still 'drugged up' & has a look of fear in his eyes.
Neighbor came good on the Vet Bill (small consolation) though. As I said to him, i would much rather he put the $ to getting his Dog a walker..

That is awful. Hopefully they find the time to sue the shit outta the place.

There's a lot of shit that goes on in boarding kennels but this sounds pretty bad. If they're up for it I would pursue legal action. Unfortunately, the best they can hope to win is replacement cost of the dog. Possibly get the local animal control involved and have the place shut down.

Don't call her a guard dog.

When she costs $230,000, as Julia did, the preferred title is "executive protection dog." This 3-year-old German shepherd, who commutes by private jet between a Minnesota estate and a home in Arizona, belongs to a canine caste that combines exalted pedigree, child-friendly cuddliness and arm-lacerating ferocity.


Fun with dogs.

does anyone have any first hand information or experience regarding Bull Terriers? I ask because there is one locally available for rescue but there is no real information beyond photos available at the moment.

I've always loved the look of these dogs but have very little first hand experience with them. My brother lives with me and has 3 children under the age of 10 and my main concern is how the dog may react to them initially.

anything else i should know or ask about in particular?

Interweb will tell you what you need to know about health and temperament. I babysat one once and it was the most stubborn dog I've ever met. Loveable though.

Go with the kids and meet the dog on neutral territory. Try not to let the kids overwhelm him. Pull the plug at the slightest sign of unwarranted aggression.

Don't know, I got her from a friend that couldn't handle her. She's got all the signs of a pure bred to my eyes but I'm no expert. Why do you ask?

Thanks. I have read a bunch about them online and they seem like any bull breed i've had experience with for the most part. Loveable but stubborn.

I just like Boxers, that's all.

Dr. Karen Becker, a veterinarian interviews Dr. Ronald Schultz and together they provide important information about pet vaccines.

I just asked the girl I got her from and apparently she has papers and some show dogs in the family. She's a great dog and about as sweet as can be.

Bull Terriers are very nice, easygoing, very playful dogs in my experience. Probably not too highly trainable. Potential for dog aggression, but not as pronounced as some other bull breeds.

Somewhat subject to Sudden Onset Rage Syndrome--if there really is such a thing. (I gather it's controversial.)
