okay, hope this isn't OT or disallowed.
Did you guys see that video, grainy and dark as it was, of the white house fence jumper kicking and punching the Belgain Malinois?
First, I hope he took some serious bites on his body. It made me sick to see the dog hit.
And I'm not looking to get into a political discussion.
But as tough as these dogs are, or as tough as I thought they were, how the heck did he do that? It appeared the dog was on a leash.
Glad they charged him with assault. Whether he's got mental problems or not.
Sorry, haven't seen the video. But being punched has nothing to do with being tough, staying in the fight does. My boy has been punched and kicked on a couple occasions, it just makes him bite and fight harder. I would imagine that the Secret Service would have Mals that are going to stay in the fight. That said, a dog is like a person, someone can do totally awesome in training and then freeze up when it's for real. I've seen it with both dogs and people. On the flip side, some dogs are kind of crappy in training and make outstanding street dogs.
