A year ago, a Pit Bull Cross escaped from his flat and went on a rampage so violent, so deadly, so filled with blood and gore that a woman had to get new shoes.
The dog bit the shoe of a guard. That bears repeating: The following story results from a bite to the shoe.
The officer was so shaken by the incident that she was able to walk the dog by the collar back to his flat. Wow.
After a year of social isolation in a shelter, the dog has been reunited with his owner. A whole year.
Now, do I think the owner of the dog is a responsible guardian? Not really. Someone who gets drunk all the time may not be the best person to have a dog.
I'm just glad the dog wasn't killed. This is unusual. I would prefer the dog went to a rescue agency and was placed in a more appropriate home, but I'll just hold on to the fact that the dog isn't you know, dead.
