How could we have known; he'd never done anything like this before?

It's not the dog's fault; he's just a baby.

He's a lovely dog, soft as anything with the children.

It was just an incident between two dogs; the other one started it and came off worst.

Anyone care to guess which of these is a genuine quote from the owners, according to the Metro?

Come the revolution, dog owners will face criminal charges as if an act of their dog was carried out by themselves. There will be waivers for crapping in public as long as the owner clears it up within a few minutes, urinating in public and underage dog molestation.

Jumping on people will be common assault - with criminal damage for any damage to clothes etc.
"Nipping" - common assault
Biting - ABH
More serious injury - GBH

Tough call and I wouldn't be surprised if they were all true.

That said a friend of mine had a lovely dog for years, it was fine with just about everything and anyone. Unfortunately it had one character defect. Whenever it saw another male dog that was bigger than it, it attacked it. My pal got mauled on a couple of occasions while pulling it off another dog and I recall being with them both when it squared up to a Great Dane, not a good moment.

The only problem I have with big dogs, is their potential for damage.

It just needs for it one bad day , and your child (or anyones child) at home or in a park say can be badly injured or killed.
