A dog killed a woman and her son last Tuesday. The dog was brought home by the woman to protect her family against her abusive husband.
– A family dog mauled his owner and son
– People petitioned that the dog be given a second chance
– Hundreds wanted to adopt the dog
A German woman bought a Staffordshire terrier eight years ago to defend herself and her family from her abusive husband. The husband was abusive and was the reason the woman was wheelchair-ridden.
The dog ended up being more than the family could handle. Last Tuesday, the woman and her son were mauled to death by their own dog in their home.
The dog was to be euthanized due to aggression but an outcry of protests and more than 260,000 people signed a petition asking for the dog to be given another chance at life.
The dog has now been removed from the family’s home and is under the care of an animal shelter. The dog was recommended to be sent to a trainer to handle its behavioral issues.
Hundreds of people have also offered to adopt the dog.
