Can I just state, there is no such thing as a dangerous dog breed! Yes, there may be dogs that are dangerous due to their owners irresponsible handling and training of them, as seems the case here, but no breed is born dangerous.
In the incidents described by the OP, it is the Mastiff’s owners fault in every way. A reactive dog like that, regardless of breed, should never be unsupervised, and should always be on the lead outside of the house. It’s as simple as that. If the dog was trained, under the owners control and on the lead, there would not even be the need for a muzzle. Obviously this was not the case here and it is only the owner that is to blame for any consequences. I would suggest rehoming the dog may be the best option after these repeated incidents.
The dogs that were put on that list were there for a reason. That was to deter their ownership as those breeds when they attacked had serious fire power to inflict damage. Would you rather be attacked by an ankle biter or a Pit Bull.removed by modearator
