Dog ordeal left my son terrified
REGARDING your stories about the two Rottweilers, Posh and Becks, and their attack on another dog.
I am not here to state my opinion, nor to demand these dogs be put to sleep.
I have been quite unsettled reading about these two Rottweilers, and I am aware of an incident about five years ago where three of the breed escaped from a residential property and chased and savaged a young boy who lived in the same street.
The boy was savaged inside his own home and it took members of his family to get them off him. The boy underwent lots of operations and skin grafts and is psychologically scarred by the attack.

I recall only one of the dogs being destroyed, whereas the other two were allowed to live.
Posh and Becks escaped and attacked a dog. Luckily it was not a child or anyone else, although the poor dog must have been frightened.
I have had a bad experience with an out-of-control dog, and one where my own child and I were walking past a dog which decided to turn on him. I was fortunate to be able to pick my child up, as the dog was circling him, snapping and snarling, showing its teeth and trying to bite.
It took brutal force to get the dog away, and there was no owner around. This was a strong dog, and one which most certainly should not have been free to roam.
I dare not think what would have happened had I not been there.
Again, it's a control issue by the owners.
