|This is a sad day for a cute 6 month old dogo argentino name Skulli. The dog belongs to the parents of a friend's girlfriend, but he spends a lot of time with my friend.
A month ago, this six month old dogo puppy was out in his fenced in backyard in Denton Texas. There is no BSL in denton. Around midnight, a 16 year old repeat offender jumped the fence trying to steal power tools. The kid stabbed the puppy in the armpit so this 6 month old puppy bit the kid on the arm and on the hand. The puppy lost three teeth in the kid's arm.
Meanwhile, the kid's buddy was on the other side of the fence calling animal control. Animal control came and tried to illegally seize the dog saying that it was a pitbull and vicious. Two of the owners refused, but the police bullied the mother into giving it to animal control.
They got it back quickly because of the nature of the seizure, but since the kid lost a couple of fingers, there had to be a court date to determine the viciousness of the dog. The parents stupidly refused council and the judge threw the book at the dog, calling it vicious.
To repeat. 16 year old attempts armed burglary, stabs a 6 month old puppy, who bites the kid on the arm and hand, and the kid gets off light while the puppy is declared vicious. He came by today, and he had been taken again and neutered by the city, and a post with a red tag was bolted through his ear that declared the dog vicious. The parents got the bill for the procedures.
The friend is calling his lawyer in the morning to see if we can get a new hearing for the pup, because it's just not right. They had only had the puppy for two weeks before this incident and now the dog's whole life is ruined and tainted by this bogus ruling. The kid waived his rights the moment he jumped the fence into the backyard. He got what he deserved and it's not fair that a 6 month old puppy had to be declared vicious and mutilated because he was defending himself from an armed attacker. Shame on Denton Texas for the whole thing.
