Default Rotties Attack Yorkie

Anyone hear about the Rottie attack in the Seattle, Washington area today? I heard the last bit of the segment on the news. From what I heard the Rotties were tied in their yard, the Yorkie got loose from his owners and commited literal suicide by running up to the dogs who killed it. When the owners attempted to recover the body the dogs refused access (being guard dogs). The cops doused the dogs in mase to get the body.

Although the Rotties were properly tied and on the owner's property they have to be put put in isolation for 10 days and are labeled dangerous...? The news cast ended stated that the owners of the Rotts probobly face criminal charges for the Yorkies death but are responsible for what happened.

This is insane! What is up with this logic? The Yorkie's owners should have contained the dog. If it were a Rott who was killed by two other Rotts then #1 we would have never heard about this and #2 the owner of the dead dog wouldn't get anything for this. It would have been "vicious man-eater" killed by "vicious man eaters".

Default Whoops!

Whoops! Grammer error...

The news cast ended stating that the owners of the Rotts probobly will not face criminal charges for the Yorkies death but are financially responsible for what happened.

To follow this go to either www.q13.com (if anything gets posted) or http://www.ilovemydog.org/
Or just wait for me to rant

This is nuts! The poor Yorkie's handler should be put in jail for dog abuse

So....a Yorkie trespassed (if you would call it tresspassing) onto someone's house and than he got attacked by two Rotties. Now the rotties are in trouble and the owner of the Rotties will have to pay for the Yorkie.

This is absolutely ridiculous. Its awful that the Yorkie died but isn't it the owners fault for not having the dog properly secured. I think its the Yorkie's owner's fault. Don't blame the Rotties for doing their job of protecting their house.

That's messed up. It's like the lady who was attacked by an Irish Setter outside his yard while she was walking on the street. She killed the dog by throwing a rock at its head because it was biting her and her Sibe.
Well, the owners of the setter, who were OUTSIDE the whole time watching that, had a fit and sued her. They should have been watching their dog in the first place.

People need to be responsible about containing their animals, or the animals WILL get killed, whether it's by a person or another dog.

Just another example of a dog's owner thinking that her dog didn't need to follow rules or have any discipline.

Assuming there are leash and containment laws in Seattle, shouldn't the owner of the Yorkie be cited for flouting those? Leave the Rotties alone. They didn't do anything wrong - contained and on their own property.

The Rottie owners need to countersue to make that point and get their dogs off the "dangerous" list, or those dogs will be in jeopardy every single time someone walks down the street. They also need to put up a privacy fence to make it more difficult to get to the dogs, because, trust me, some idiots will be gunning for those dogs now, whether it's just tormenting them to the point that they do become dangerous or actually hurting them or poisoning them.

Well, here's another story of dogs not being disciplined. The guy across the road from the farm has two Lab mixes, a Yorkie and another dog that's either a very small Collie or a very large Sheltie. He lets them run loose all day and even at night (I hear them barking in our woods to the front and side of the house at 3:00 a.m.), and they've been getting increasingly aggressive, not to mention they're going to get killed chasing cars. They've even been aggressive toward our dogs, but, with the exception of the big male Lab mix finally making Bimmer angry, our dogs have just ignored them. The Lab is now terrified of Bimmer.

I think they've just learned that our pasture isn't the healthiest place for unfriendly dogs. I just heard lots of noise and barking and snarling, and called my dogs, then lots of yipping and squealing, and about two minutes later, my three sauntered in the front door, oh, so casually.

Something tells me that our cows aren't going to be chased for awhile! It's really a shame, because our dogs are normally happy to have friends come over and play and hunt together. All Danny's dogs had to do was play nice and not chase cows.

Default No information?

I haven't been able to find a thing. None of the news stations seem to care about the story but I've emailed them anyway. I want to know what happened. I heard from a friend that the dogs were already labeled aggressive so this is more a city problem.

Seattle's Dangerous Dog Law states that it only takes 3 annonymous complaints about your dog acting aggressively to get your dog taken away and euthanized. This is in an attempt to get around the breed laws but means if you **** off a neighbor, you're in trouble.

Their is a leash law in Seattle which is a good point to bring up.

Some people are just idiots, everyone assumes the little dogs can do no wrong but it's like I said in my email- to dogs size doesn't mean a dam* thing, it's whether the dog knows how to carry itself. To the Rotties, this was a threat to themselves and their property and they acted accordingly. May have been overkill, but dogs just don't think like people, if they did that Yorkie would have been smart enough to stay away.

Oh wow, I didn't know they could do that....anywhere in the US. Thats horrible. But how would they prove that the dog is being aggressive or do the cops just not care?
