That is really, really bad. I have a scar on my arm from a shepherd bite (dog broke his chain) - my mother refused money from the owner (even though she had to pay a deductible - I only needed 3 stitches for a hole made by one tooth). I was ok, just scared (I was 11). Later, with the owner, went up to the dog to pet him. FF some mumble mumble years and I finally get the dog I want... yep, you guessed it - s Shepherd. If my mother and the lady who owned the dog had not handled it the way they did, I probably would not be sitting here with a 95 pound black and tan horse laying at my feet.

Shame on today's society for being so sue happy (yes, that contributes to the type of behavior exhibited in BSL), and shame on people for thinking BSL will correct everything. Not every dog - because it's a [insert brand here] will be mean or will bite. But of course, I'm probably preaching to the choir for most of the people reading this - since BSL advocates have their heads so far up their nether-sides, they can't be reading anything remotely anti-BSL.
