I think the puppy needs to have lots of chew toys and this man needs someone to take proper care of him. If he's covered in sores enough to attract a dog then he shouldn't be living alone.

I am not sure what to say here. I can see that the man wouldn't feel the pain but couldn't he see the dog? Unless he was sleeping? This was an odd story.

Wow. I am really at a loss for a comment here. Such a bad situation. Will the guy really miss the toes? Will the dog continue to be a danger to him?

I wish there was a prt in this story where a behaviourist commented on why this happened. This is definitely a "strange but true" story.

OMG! How sad. But it was still a puppy and puppies chew. He did not attack. I know how sharp a puppies teeth are. We all do. This man had no idea the puppy was chewing off his toes. The puppy did not know he was doing wrong.

How horrible, it doesn't sound like the dog is aggressive. I hope the dog is returned, but should be supervised with this man.

Open sores on his toes attracted the dog... sounds like this poor man needs some home health care.

The pup was only 6 months old. He probably didn't realize what he was doing to his owner. But all precautions have to be made to never have anything like this to happen again. Mr. Smith must have been a really sound sleeper, can't imagine he
didn't know the dog was in the room with him.

This certainly is strange. I hope the family is okay. The poor dog had no idea that he was doing anything wrong. I'm sure it's an isolated incident.

This is way too unbelieveable. How does this man own a 6-month old pit?? Another story where you have to question the behviour of the humans before questioning the actions of the dog.

Not surprising to me. A six-month old puppy will chew on anything. Pits are especially strong chewers. How many times has a puppy tried to chew on your hand? He probably got down there and just got to work, and because his dad was paraylized, he just didn't feel it. The sores wouldn't have helped either, as we all know dogs love to lick wounds, and well, "clean up".

So what's to stop the dog from doing this again? Seems a bit risky to the paralyzed owner. Such a strange story.

This is warped but I can see how it could happen. A friend of mine had a little pit bull pup that was a voracious chewer and when I was over I was constantly pushing its toy in its mouth in substitute for my fingers. And what sharp little teeth it had too. If I could not feel my fingers it would have chewed them right through I am sure, not out of aggression, but just out of pure puppy chewing need.

What a gruesome story. I guess since he is paralyzed he couldn't feel it but what did he think his dog was chewing on?
