A New Hampshire man and his dog are both recovering today from a vicious attack by a pit bull and an American Stafford-shire terrier in their own yard a few days ago.
The Dow family was home in the morning when the attack started and I am betting out of pure instinct Mr. Dow dove into the middle of the dog attack saving his dog Izzy from certain death at the hands of two vicious pack behaving animals.
As usual this is yet another case of piss poor pet owners. 43-year-old Scott Lewis is the owner of these two dogs and police say they have had trouble from them before. Looks like the need to stiffen the laws there in N.H. to put a stop to idiots like Scott Lewis from poorly raising and supervising his vicious dogs without any real repercussions.
Quite frankly an eye for an eye or in this case hand for a hand should be in order. Those dogs bit his hand all up so he should be able to take a hammer to Scott Lewis’ hand and maybe then people will start to get the picture. for those that think I am insane, well you may be right ;P
But with all of the people killed, maimed and flat out tore up in dog attacks something drastic has got to be done with lousy dog owners and to be clear this is all Scott Lewis’ fault not his dogs. They are just being dogs. He is the dumb ass that had them to start with and didn’t properly control them.
