Default Anatolian in Florida may be put down

Please read this article in the Ocala, FL newspaper regarding what is happening to Rocky the Anatolian. I'm so saddened over this as we know his breeder.

What a sad situation ! I can see how it could have been a " play " situation , rather than an attack.

A male show Anatolian (the top Anatolian in the nation, actually) and two other Anatolians escaped from their kennel. While they were out, they killed a neighbor's chihuahua. Now the courts have declared the dog dangerous, so among other restrictions, the dog must be neutered.

Show dog enthusiasts are fighting it, saying that the dog should not be removed from the Anatolian gene pool. And the owner of the Anatolian says will probably have to get the dog PTS since it was declared dangerous. Her insurance for the entire kennel will skyrocket (she would be required to keep "dangerous dog" insurance), and she cannot afford it.

If they lose, why can't they neuter it and adopt it out to, say, Barb?

It seems like once the dog is declared dangerous, this tag stays with him no matter where he goes. There seems to be a lot of red tape involved in this whole thing and I'm praying for a good outcome. There are legalities going on right now with the courts. I will keep you posted as to the final outcome.

It is a shame the dog will end up paying the price for its owners lack of control.

it wasnt the owners lack of control that led to this incident. it was a worker at her house that left a gate open.

taken from the article:

"Cartagena said the attacking dogs matched the description of Rocky and two other shepherds that escaped that day from neighboring Island Farm, owned by Grunnah, who said a handyman had accidentally freed the dogs at about 7:30 a.m. Within 15 minutes, Grunnah said, she and her staff were combing the area for the valuable canines, and within hours, they had sent up an airplane to look for them."

I have a fenced in yard with a lock on the gate lock so it can't be opened accidentally by someone. I was told to do this by my fence installed which I think is a good idea for everyone to do.
