The only thing is... the dog actually bit a child in the face. That frightens me with McKinley, I dont feel it would be wise for me to take her.

sorry I did recieve an email back from the owner. It stated she had bit a little girl in the face from a fear bite...that concerns me... It may never happen again, but I don't think I want to take the chance with my grandbaby.

Yeah that's probably why she's saying the dog should go to a home with either no kids or older kids.

Awe.. hope the girl finds a home.

Is there a Fila Fountain somewhere?

I have no idea, but it's going to be the death of me, especially since most of the shelters that end up with them have NO freaking clue about how to home a Fila. They think a home with regular Mastiff experience is best, and it isn't. Terrier experience is great. Australian Shepherd people are another great choice, Giant Schnauzer, Airedale (Terrier), Great Pyr, etc. are a far better preparation for living with a Fila than an English Mastiff or even a Bull Mastiff. GSD, Doberman or even most Rottie people aren't normally a good choice because they are used to dogs who are more obedient.
