It could have just as easily been that the kid couldn't hold the dog and it got into a fight with the other dog.. then who's fault is it?? The APBT... We are talking about TODAY, not yesterday.. ANY negative media coverage is a black mark against our breed, and personally if it takes my child being disappointed that he/she isn't allowed to walk our APBTs alone until they are deemed responsible, old enough, and mentally able to deal with problems that may arise so be it. I am all for encouraging kids to take part in the dogs, love JR Handlers competitions, BUT that is helping show them responsiblity by learning how to control, and deal with their dogs when other dogs are present, WITH parental supervision.

I do agree that the man who fired the gun should be punished, make no mistake about it, but I still feel there is more to this story than we know.


I can't agree more...it's just setting the dog/child up for failure...

OMG that is horrible. That poor child was not only in danger from this knucklehead but he saw his dog shot in cold blood. If I was that parent he would have more to worry about then a cop arresting him. He would be in ICU.

When I was a kid, I couldn't have a dog unless I walked it. If I didn't walk it, it didn't get walked. That was part of my responsibility of owning a pet. I really can't remember the first time I walked a dog (mind you it wasn't a pit, but it still outweighed me by a lot). I walked dogs on roller skates. I remember holding on while my dog ran down hill pulling me.

I wouldn't let my 10 yr old niece walk my pits, but, that's b/c I don't trust my dogs not to fight, and I don't trust the kid not to let go of the leash and run away screaming.

Did anyone see the follow up story where a breeder in the area gave the kid a new puppy?

In that article is also states that before the dog was shot the kid dropped the leash on his dog, doesnt say why he dropped it... Still didn't say what was going to happen to the neighbor who shot the dog though...

Yeah she needs to keep stirring sht find a BA attorney that will sue the city for neg, and sue the man as well as press charges, she has to go down and PRESS charges. Better to have an attorney do it all and kick em all right in the batteries... Thats tramatic to alittle boy, let that have been a senators kids and OH LORD.. we would have bullying cramed down our throughts.. LOL sorry soapbox (knock the bully out) theres bullying in the work place as adults WTF is that sissyfied attitude. SOORRRY but thats what it takes to get some recognition in a nation for the people by the people; the people dont matter unless they know somebody or are somebody.

Lindsey had posted the link a few days ago about the breeder giving the family a puppy; however, I missed the part about he lease being dropped until now. Whatever the reason is that he dropped the leash doesn't help the fact that the whole incident could have possibly been avoided had he and the dog been under the proper adult supervision.
Anyway here is the article:


Pitbull breeder gives 9-year-old new puppy
JEFFERSON CITY, MO. -- Jerry Adams got a nice surprise Thursday, three days after his pitbull was allegedly shot by a neighbor while the 9-year-old was walking him.
A stranger, who saw the news coverage about the shooting, gave Jerry a new pitbull puppy.
Jerry’s mom, Joy, said they are going to name him Oke; the other dog’s name, Ecko, spelled backwards.
The stranger, Scott Owens, who is a pitbull breeder, said the puppy was up-to-date on shots and plans on paying for the puppy’s shots as he grows up.
An investigator stopped by the home again Thursday afternoon. Jerry told the investigator he dropped the leash right before the neighbor shot the dog.

Yeah.. but that can be explained... Let any 9-16yrold walk a APBT and have a person with in ft, point a gun at you, mind you a 9yr old is like 44in tall roughly and a man who is 6ft pointing a gun 50ft or less at a dog 22in off the ground thats half the height of the boy and in a shooting aspect only off my inches as far as ballistics and aiming. From a that distance the gun looks like its aimed right at the boy from the boys perspective, and I would tear that dude up in court.. Waving a weapon around a minor? Shooting the dog because its an APBT is like shooting someone cause they look like they sell crack. Pshaww~ "the 9yr old boy is walking his dog, the man and dog are at the bottom of hill, the man scared and anal lashes out like a liberal media acalyte, IM A SHOOT THAT DOG, before the boy and the dog are anywhere for the man to worry and while he says that he pulls out the gun simutaneously, the boy and dog get closer the man points the gun at the boy, the boy drops his dog in fear already full of high anxiety from the initial ADULT LIKE greeting, and the boy freezes as shots ring.... That is almost gotta be how it happened I doubt a 9yr old is going to let his dog go on purpose after a statement like that from the man, and JFYI there are trained police and well practiced gang bangers who can't get the draw on an APBT who is gunning for them, so HOW in the world did this man do it with OUT AGGRIVATED ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON??? Waving the gun before a threat was real; and on a minor at that?? No one pressed charges through the right routes.
