3-year-old girl disfigured in pit bull attack in New Jersey needs help
Here’s another story where pit bull owners will immediately go on the defensive and pretend it’s never the dog; it is still the owner.
Whatever the fault, is it true that pit bulls are dangerous? Here are the facts.
Fact: Pit bulls don’t bite more often than other dogs. Cockers actually bite more.
Fact: A pit bull’s biting force isn’t the strongest of all dogs.
Fact: There is no such thing as a “pit bull” per se. The four breeds that fall under the pit bull category are the American Pit Bull, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, and American Bully.
Another fact: this umbrella category known as pit bulls by far kills more people than any other breed.
It could have happened again in Vernon, NJ. On September 20, a couple had their three-year-old at a friend’s house where their pit bull attacked the girl. The dog was tenacious, biting the girl over and over again.
The man and woman who were desperately trying to save their daughter were also injured. The girl was injured so badly that she had to be airlifted to Morristown Medical Center.
Want to see how much damage this class of dog can do? The woman who created a GoFundMe page for the family to deal with growing medical bills put this image side by side. One of the girls on a normal day next to how the girl ended up.
His injuries were horrible. Little Evie has multiple lacerations. A collapsed lung. His nose is gone. She also lost an ear in the dog attack. She is in need of extensive facial reconstruction and has been kept sedated to prevent her from trying to touch her face and body tubes. It really is a tragic story.
There is more information here on the GoFundMe page itself on how the girl is doing and what the family is dealing with. They need help. The woman who created the page, a girlfriend of little Evie’s uncle, says if you can’t donate, sharing on social media would be very helpful.
The girl is lucky to be still alive. I understand that people who own a pit bull type breed never think it will be their dog. But the numbers speak volumes. While these types of dogs don’t bite the most, it’s when they do that they kill the most.
From dogbitelaw.com: âFrom 2009 to 2018, pit bulls killed or maimed 3,569 people in the United States and Canada. They have killed over 80% of Americans who are killed by dogs.
It’s funny to me that so many whore bull owners say that aggression isn’t an inherent trait in pit bulls, but name them as if that’s exactly what attracted them to the dog. On rover.com, the top 10 names of male pit bulls:
10 – Thor
9 – Jax
8 – Boyfriend
7 – Apollo
6 – Duke
5 – Diesel
4 – Ace
3 – Rocky
2 – Blue
1 – Zeus
Thor? Duke? Diesel? Rocky? These aren’t exactly the names you think of for adorable hugs now, are they?
