Re: [RealityDreamer,Hunter,Aragorn, All] Cruelty against dogs/puppies
Be careful what you wish for. The public acts like the boy because they do not understand dogs and fear it. So if the dog did charged out and acted on instinct alone and bit the boy. Canine world in Malaysia have to retreat another step. Perhaps then we can't even walk our dogs out of the gate.
Remember the case of the rottweiler that killed the old lady many years ago? after that the government controlled the large species import making it difficult. No one is going to listen to what the old lady did to the dog to make it so angry, the dog just went for the injection.
So please remember this whenever you are handling a dog especially the large species. No matter how tame they are, Kindly don't trust them 100%. Keep them leashed as we do not know what goes in their head all the times. A dog in the public is an uncocked gun waiting for an accident to happen. When it does, the poor dog always pays for it. Not fair but the human is to be blamed. So remember what you wish for..
