        Another sad loss. The owners of the dog, the childs mother are to blame. The dog who may or may not be a PitBull was with her puppies in their yard. If you have small children then do not let them be with dogs and their puppies unsupervisored. We see what happened. Breeding in Temple without a permit?

        So sad that another child has to miss out on a potentially great life because yet another person feels the need to own a dog breed that is KNOWN for being loose cannons and dangerous. Pit bull lovers: Like it or not your animals can't be trusted. Are they the only dangerous breed? No, but they are at the top of the ladder. You don't read reports of a child having their throats torn off by a poodle, or a golden retriever, or a cocker spaniel. But ahh... what's another life lost as long as you can live in denial and own a rough, tough dog.
