What do I do? My son's AmStaff attacked a dog
November 10, 2009 | By Anne F.
My son moved back home to go to school over a year ago and brought his AmStaff (Ishi) with him. At first I was not happy at all, but soon fell in love with this dog. He is very attached to my son, and is a little depressed when he is at school or work. I tried to take him for walks but he is too strong for me. In the last month he bit a friend of ours who rode into our backyard on his bike. Just a few days ago I walked out our front door and there was someone walking by with his two dogs and Ishi shot out the door and attacked this man's black lab. It was over quickly but of coourse the lab needed a vet (he will be fine). Everyone now expects us to put Ishi down; it's the socially correct thing to do. Right now Ishi is in quarantine. My heart is broken, and I don't know what to do. Any advice from anyone is appreciated, please help.
