    Mate that is terrible !

    Firstquestion, why did the dog bite the child ? I think having it put to sleep is a bit drastic imo, he may have been provoked, hot and bothered or just not good with kids. Putting him to sleep isn't very fair, he may be an amazing dog who gets on great with other dogs / people.

    I disagree, I have 3 kids and wouldn't want to put a dog to sleep.

    If the dog was provoked or teased or had its tail pulled then I would disagree with having it put to sleep, if another strong reason then I would

    yes whats the circumstances

    theres not automatic justification to have a dog put to sleep and only a court could order that.

    Totally agree 100% (as you can tell I am a dog lover )

    Mate take into consideration it is the hottest day of the year so far, so your dog was probably very hot and bothered also !

    do you know the child or know where they live?I agree with franko, I have a child but putting your dog to sleep would be a last resort imo. I would try to speak to the childs parents asap

    Aw feel for you Dave, you must be gutted.
    Do try and find out what happened if possible. I'd be devastated if a dog of mine did that and would worry about it happening again, but don't just rush into it until you find out what happened.

    well its killing me inside right now but we cant take the risk we have our little daughter and i dont wanna have to be taking her to the hospital because of him

    he's a great dog with people he knows very loving and always next to ya

    but ...

    we have a 3ft fence down the side of our backgarden and there is 5 kids next door now my dog has already nipped one of those kids twice in the last year nothing bad as to whats happened today if ya know what i mean
    anyway i was just looking out the window as i heard the kids next door and they was stroking my big neo (rocky) then i saw nemo have ago at rocky then rocky went back to the fence and then nemo lunged at the little kid who doesnt even live there and has bit his face
    nemo was not provoked in any of the incidents

    so i have no choice but to have him put to sleep

    Sorry to hear that Dave, like the others have mentioned what were the circumstances mate. Was the dog really to blame or do other factors have to be taekn into account? Imo the dog shuld only be put to sleep if he has bit the child totally unprovoked or if he shows consistent agressive tendencies indicating that this is perhaps in his nature. Then again I'm not a parent so I can't really comment but I expect the childs parents may feel pretty strongly about what they want to happen.

    Just out of interest would you still consider putting the dog to sleep if it had bitten an adult?

    If you're really that worried about it happening again then you've gotta do what you think is right mate. All the best

    Awful stuff mate, it doesn't look good.
    I love dogs to bits and really would never want to have one put down, but given the circumstances it might be the only option.
    Really sorry for ya mate

    i think its jealousy

    he has completly changed since shannon started crawling he wont go near her unles she has food if she crawls near him he moves he has even growled at her a few times but me being me thought well ill keep an eye on him and he knows not to do it has i have warned him before

    but rocky gets more attention from kids next door because he his not aggressive in anyway he licks my daughter to death,lays down next to her, lets her pull on his tail and ears and he aint bothered

    we got rocky 3 weeks before shannon was born and that was no nemo would have some company

    Could well be due to the heat mate. I wouldn't completely rule out the kids provoking him either, may just be you aren't aware of it - I used to live next to a house full of kids and the little so and so's used to give my dog so much stick when he was in the garden that I had to keep him in doors, poor dog couldnt even enjoy his own garden. I even put up a 5' fence but the little sods would just climb up it and dangle their arms and legs over it trying to get a reactionfrom him.

    difficult to say at the moment and would depend on the circumstances but if it was like now and unprovoked then yes he would still be put down

    Like everyone else has said really...but you only have one choice in the end.

    The dog bit the kid when unprovoked...so...

    He cant be with any child, not yours or anyone elses, if hes done it once he could do it again, it could be your child next...you have to get rid of the dog. Whether that means putting him to sleep though i dont know, isnt there other options? But, he isnt safe with children. You have to do something mate because otherwise you could be facing the police.
