Dog attacks postie, & it's NOT a PB!!!

Well, I'll be.........A boxer-terrier that ignored its owners' commands to stop biting the legs of a letter carrier in Ingersoll was pepper-sprayed by a police officer. Letter carrier not hurt but stiff and tired from his struggle with the dog on Wednesday.
Dog is now at home with owners. The dog charged out of the front door and lunged at him. He knocked down the postie and bit his legs while the owner unsuccessfully tried to call him off.

Imagine that....not a pit bull!!

Schwinn you slay me with your humour. I was just talking to an other guy I work with in film and read him that line he roared. On the last day of shooting we make a fake call sheet and we usually list the weather as dark and mushroomy he is now probably going to steal that line

Isn't it funny.. a pit bites and is removed from the home ASAP and 9 out of 10 times pts, but a boxer mix bites, is back home with the owners and will comtinue to live out his life to the fullest, munching on post men.... Where's the ban for boxer mixes? :rolleyes:

That's not true TWilson. Many "pit bull type dogs" that have been involved in attacks have remained in the home with the owners for the 10 day quarantine. In some cases the owners have allowed the dogs to be taken and quarantined before euthanization.

Even if this had been a pit bull, the ban would NOT have protected anyone because the dog was in its home, and went through the front door... no chance to get a muzzle on then.... :rolleyes:
