Should dangerous dogs be banned as family pets?
People usually buy the big dogs such as American pit-bull to keep them as pets. In my opinion, those dangerous dogs should be banned. First of all, the rogue dogs are very aggressive and unpredictable; they can attack the kids any time when the kids are near them. Zac, 3, was savage attacked in neighbour’s backyard in Yallourn North by an American pit-bull in December 2005. A five-year-old girl was bitten her head, abdomen and legs when she had been playing with the dog for about an hour in the back yard near Melbourne. The kids have been treated in the hospital and they are still very scared of the dogs. In addition, it’s extremely difficult for the owners to control their dogs properly. In fourth of October, a woman and her small dogs were attacked by four greyhounds when they were walking on the beach. The owner of those greyhounds was trying to help her and the dogs turned to attack him too. Finally, those big dangerous dogs are so powerful, they can kill people easily. Robyn Gordon was killed by her 14 dogs when she was staying at home alone. She was their owner and they were in her care. Therefore, we should ban those big powerful aggressive dogs, they are unpredictable and so dangerous to people especially to the children.
Families who choose big dogs with aggressive bloodlines as pets are putting their children’s lives in danger. Any victims believe that the owners who can’t control their dogs properly should be jailed. The government show more than 70% of dog attack happen when the family pet turns on the kids in the family home. One of the big issues that people tend to select dogs based on their look rather than buying a dog that suits their family. The expert believes that the owners should be forced to pass an exam that proves they are able to look after they dog and keep them healthy and content.
