I agree! It is not funny, but I can't help but picture 4 pound chihuahuas biting him!

OH man, I saw that. That's the 3rd time he's been attacked by dogs on duty. What does he wash his socks dog food?

Imagine if it had been 5 OTHER breeds of dog - would you still be laughing... Why do small dogs get away with such bad behaviour?

Anything bigger and they would have been PTS by now

I agree, very bad behaviour! I think the only reason is five chi's are not life threatening, but a pack of bigger dogs could have done some real damage.

It is really sad that the size of a dog determines the outcome. I think all owners should have to restrain and control their dog no matter what breed. I hope this owner will be held responsible for the hospital visit and the loss of work for the officer! Why should innocent taxpayers pay for his work time while he is in the emergency room, when the dogs owner was clearly not taking responsiblility of her pack.

I am really surprised this even made the news, if it were a pack of larger dogs, and deadly force would have been used, the title probably would have been ............Officers kills family pets.

I guess that's just how things go......

I know I shouldn't be laughing, but ankle bites just cracked me up. I could just picture them all knawing on his ankles.
It really isn't a laughing matter. If it had been large dogs they would have been shot or pts. If really isn't fair, the same rules should apply to all dogs.

This could be either badly trained dogs, because lots of people tend to not train their "pocket pups," or it could be the protective Chi behavior kicking in. You have to wonder if the officer had his hands on the boy or was doing something that could have been interpreted by the Chis as hurting their owner. Even if this was a Rottie pack or a Lab pack, I would wonder the same things. I think most dog bites are definetely triggered.
But Julie, you are right. If these dogs were Rotts or Pits, it would be all over the news and the dogs would have been PTS on the spot.

Well, one of the reasons they are not going to order a chi to be PTS, is because of its looks. Whenever a judge looks at a chi, they think of Paris Hilton's dog, Tinkerbell. You look at a GSD and some judges don't have any remorse.
