I work with a woman whose son, girlfriend and two daughters live with the son's best friend and pitbull (he has had since it was 6 weeks old) in one apartment. Apparently, the other day the 11 year old girl was supposedly simply petting the pit and he turned around and bit her in the face. It's pretty bad and she had to be medivaced to a hospital in Mass.
My co-worker says her son said the pit is the sweetest thing and there have never been any issues. However, when my co-worker pressed him he said "well he has growled at visiting children before by never the kids that live there that he knows of." My co-worker and I feel this was a missed warning sign that things were not all well.
It really doesn't matter that this storey included a pitbull. This could happen with any breed whether it is a golden, shihtzu etc. What do you all think? Could this of been prevented or not?
