Dog not to blame
Let Diesel the dog go. It is absolutely ridiculous that they punish the dog by putting it in isolation for 22 months, away from its family, for getting in a scrap with another dog.
I encounter these on almost every walk but luckily there has been an owner to control the dog.
Punishing the dog and not the owner is wrong. Witnesses on CHBC News claim it was the other dog that bit the woman in the fracas. We’ll never know, but either way, if you get in the middle of a dog fight, beware. Even your own dog will bite when these scraps happen.
Fine the owner, let the dog go and pay the woman compensation for her injury. On TV it showed experts taunting and provoking poor Diesel — who just cowered and looked confused. Not aggressive even a little. Most dogs would bite you if you came at them like that.
I love all breeds, large and small, but I own small so I can control them when they decide they don’t like the dog we just passed on our walk. Own the size you can control. So come on people, voice your dismay at the way Diesel is being treated. It could save the live of a very smart, playful dog.
