Attacks on the rise

Nice post. The unfortunate thing is that people can present you with a very polished front during the purchase phase of getting a pup.  When the puppy leaves your yard the is not much you can actually do to ensure anything. The best thing is to educate the prospective buyer up front and quiz then on their knowledge of your breed and its requirements. Incidentally I found this awesome website with BSL type information. The articles are very well written and documented.

    • It appears to me the attacks on the rise in our breeds we love so much. Here in Dayton OH in fact not far from where we live an elderly woman was killed by her two Cane Corso's. Both dogs were starved and not well provided for. There are many Bite cases and or attacks in the media lately. This scares me. As a breeder I am beyond mad. I feel Breeders have a responsibility to the breed and as well as the buyer. We need to educate these people about the breed not sale to the first dollar sign we see. Its up to us to protect our dogs and the people that dont have enough sense to learn or take time to read about a breed and assume because they had a Rott or Pitt they can handle a Bully Kuta or Presa or Fila and so on. I call our breed a "hot dog" we have breeds that typically will not turn off at the switch.Not a lab or a retriever.

      I try to educate and I rarely sell a neo to a first time owner I would like to hear other thoughts on this topic

      We need to protect our dogs before they end up on LIST.

          • One thing breeders can do is to insist on doing home checks of where their puppy will be living .This often gives us more infornation than we can gleam from phonecalls and emails etc.I have only had 2 litters in 20 years the last one fortunately,only having 4 pups ,of which I kept 2.One went to someone I had known and had had one of my pups 15 years previously.However the second pup went to someone I did not know at the time,he arrived cash in hand assuming he was going to view and pick up his pup but was not at all offended when I said he could not take the pup until I had visited him in his home.I arrived at his home and all was just what I wanted for my pup although he was a little concerned that he had not told me about his chickens ,I just laughed and said as long as you know if you dont train the dog correctly his chickens would cease to exist.I am happy to say that chickens and dog are all fine and infact as I was typing this I was just sent a text wishing me and the dogs a happy new year him and the dog he even kept the name I had given the pup up to the point of leaving.
