Boy Attacked by Dangerous Dog!!

Photo from Lancashire Telegraph.

No, the dog is not a Staffie!

This time it's a..... 

Yorkshire Terrier!

You can read more here.

I feel sorry for Owen Poole... Hope he'll be brave enough to go out on his own again.

What amazes me about this story is the comments left by the readers... and for some reason the comments are no longer at the website!!! 

There were comments about how Owen must have done something to the Yorkshire Terrier and that's why it attacked poor Owen. They were blaming Owen.

Now, if it was a staffie, the comments would have been the staffie is a devil dog and all staffies should be banned blah blah blah... 

I am not saying that it was Owen's fault that he was attacked. It might have been his fault. It could have been the Yorkie. Who knows?!

Anyway, I just wanted to make the point that Yorkshire Terriers can cause damage too not just Staffies!  It was interesting to see how quickly the readers can blame the boy when it is a cute little Yorkshire Terrier but quick to blame the dog if it is a Staffie!
