A video that shows 2 leashed pitbulls fighting in a Pennsylvania Petco store has gone viral on social media.

The 2 dogs were on leashes when they lunged at each other and began fighting in an aisle in a Petco store. A customer recorded the bloody mess on video as the dog owners and Petco workers tried to separate the growling beasts.

One of the dogs was seriously injured and bleeding out all over the floor. The dogs were eventually separated, and the owner of the injured dog was advised to rush the wounded animal to the vet immediately.

A spokeswoman for Petco's corporate office in San Diego confirmed the incident occurred at a Petco store at 1960 Edinboro Road in the Erie area.

Company policy allows pet owners to bring all dog breeds - including aggressive dog breeds - into the store as long as they are on leashes.

"We're relieved to report that the two dogs involved in an incident at our Erie store are recovering well at home with their pet parents," Petco officials said in an email to the Erie Times-News. "In support of our policy to welcome all leashed pets in our stores, our store partners are trained on proper techniques and protocol for handling instances like these and we're extremely proud of the swift, careful and appropriate action taken by our store team to safely separate the dogs and (defuse) the situation."

CAUTION: This video contains violent content that may be disturbing to some viewers.

    Sigh, we can't have opinions anymore without retracting statements.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Wheeeeew this is hard to watch but if u have a pitbull you'll want to know u are protected and it can stand its ground!

  • KarmaBackAround

    It wasnt ignorant at all but truth..smh this is no longer the land of the free, in any way.. everything is controlled n regulated

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Dang that beautiful blue's face was mangled!

    I do NOT like any type of animals, no thanks!

    This is why when I take my 6 pound Yorkie to petsmart I carry my baby in my arms everybody animals ain’t trained I don’t go to petco don’t really like the place but when I take my baby to petsmart to the groomers he is leashed and in my arms

  • xxxgracious

    My uncle has two pitbulls. When I gave birth to my son my aunt (who cant have children) begged to babysit often. I was under the impression the dogs were outdoor dogs. Usually my uncle and aunt would drop my son off at my place but one time I drove to their home to pick him up. I remember walking in the house and reaching for my baby. Both dogs rushed me like I was harming him. My uncle grabbed one and kicked the other dog and started yelling at them. They backed away but growled at me the entire time I held my son. My aunt reassured me the dogs love my son. That was the last time my child went over there! ?

  • SpillyNillie

    Exactly. There was nothing harmful about what he said. Why ask people for their opinion when, in the end, they'll likely retract it because someone else didn't like it?

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Dam, was it testosterone or being raised wrong by the owners...

  • xxxgracious

    Land of the lgbqtuxyzsfk...smfh

  • KarmaBackAround

    Right smfh

  • Yardgirl

    Damn that story gave me the shivers!! I am a dog lover but pit bulls and rottweilers scare the crap out of me. People say pits make the best babysitters and will guard the baby, but what you describe is they get attached and will harm anyone that they perceive to be a threat!! No ma'am not around my kid and I would have done exactly what you did!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Jesus...

    This is exactly why I avoid these mfers. I will walk an additional 2 miles when walking my dog just to make sure I dont cross paths with them.

    I hope they aren't seriously injured.

    SN: I don't know how.people watch dogs fight.

  • Carrington

    People think that because THEIR pit bull hasn't killed anyone that the BREED isn't a dangerous one. They blame "bad owners", but here's the point: according to the last statistics - 74% of FATAL dog attacks were by pit bulls. That means that of all other dog breeds COMBINED committed 26% of fatal dog attacks EVERY SINGLE DOG BREED COMBINED killed 26% of the people they attacked the REST were killed by pit bulls.

    If it's the owner and not something inherently wrong with the BREED, then why are 74% of "bad pet owners" owners of pitbulls? Why arn't German Shepherd owners bad pet owners? JUST pit bull owners?

    Just because your dog hasn't bitten or attacked YOU, doesn't mean that the BREED still doesn't have an issue.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Pitbulls arent pet, theyre killing machine. Yall wont learn until they eat you or your kids. One of my neighbor is a typical becky with all the beckiness it entails and she burst out in tears because i told her i would shoot and kill her dog. Im not fawking playing yall if you see emma maria hernandez on the news being booked for emptying a clip in one of those animals yall better hashtag my name. Tuhhhhh

  • xxxgracious

    I believed her when she said they wouldnt harm him but I knew eventually he was gonna get older and probably grab them or irritate them and I just didnt want to take any chances. I'd hate for them to snap on him and bite his arm off or anything. I never owned a pit or been around any but as a new mom at the time my instincts were like "HELL NO". My son still gets to see my uncle and aunt..but at my house where the only animals we have is Tippy our turtle and he ain't gone do ish lol.

  • Carrington

    I went to my friends house and that MF he had tried like HELL to get to me. I was literally standing on the dining room table screaming while this MF was pissed off, while STRUGGLING to get this MF to another room, that I was standing on his table!
    Then, he thought that $hit was funny. Never again, bro. I will NEVER set foot in this MF again. Eff you AND ya dog!

  • Meme

    Thank God they didn't attack a small child or vulnerable or elderly person or any other person for that matter. With summer time they go crazy round here

  • Alextra Ballard

    Wdf is going on?! I can’t even finish watching it

  • xxxgracious

    What the hell!! See owners like that are the ones that be on TV saying their pet is angel...meanwhile the dog is chasing kids off the school bus. I hate that happened to you.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Looking at that pic above scares me....smh at his legs

  • Lainy Damone

    thats not true Pitbulls actually get a bad rep and it comes from training my friends pit was mistreated and taught to fight he became a rescue dog saved by my friend and he is the best dog It has to do with the owners

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    NO JENIFER!!!! NO! Take your white success story the fuQ elsewhere! I said what i said! Worry about your friend becoming bbq

  • Yardgirl

    Virtual high five to you sis!! Tippy sounds like the perfect pet for a kid. Some pit bull owners get very offended when you show concern but I am about me and mines, no offense to anyone but we come first. Period!

  • Alextra Ballard

    And mofo tawkin bout pitbulls get a bad reputation

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Did you read that???? Next they’ll say the kkk is merely a gathering of mild protestors. Bye becky

  • Dowoop

    Lmfao

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Just reading the headline is enough for me. I couldn't hit play to watch any of that. I love animals more than people, sad to say..

  • Carrington

    Why are pit bulls the ONLY breed that gets a "bad rep"... you rarely hear of Cocker Spaniels or German Shepherds attacking and killing... why is it ALWAYS Pit Bulls and why are the bad dog owners ONLY Pit Bull owners?

  • Meme

    NO JENIFER!!!! ???

  • xxxgracious

    ??Exactly. I feel bad for my aunt. I know she enjoyed babysitting and there were times I wanted to go out and I knew she was available but I remember how them dogs rushed me and I just stay my ass at home and watch Paw Patrol lol.

  • Kimocha

    OH MY!!!... See this is exactly why I don't take my chihuahua Dae Dae to no pet store wit me cuz he THINKS he's a BIG dog and be tryna walk up on other dogs talkin sh@t and would get seriously fck'd up!... Then I would have to kill somebody!...Smdh!!!

  • Yardgirl
  • xxxgracious

    All my cocker spaniel did was piss when he got nervous ??? ol scary ass lol.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    That's a lie. My dog was attacked(IMO) by two pit bulls. I immediately took her to the vet. He said that Pits are aggressive breeds and that in fact, he doesn't even think they were fighting my dog, he thinks they were playing. He said that they have an aggressive play style as well.

    All I know is my dog was literally doing the dog equivalent of crying/screaming for help...which is what alerted me to the incident.

  • SeannaPaula

    That statement came straight out the mouth of his cock sucking , littleboy loving male boss.

  • Carrington

    Mine TOO!! And chew on the end of my damn dressers and tables. I use to scream and scare her and she'd LITERALLY pass out. I thought she was DEAD the first time! LOL

  • dru and neil

    I don’t understand this obsession people have with pit bulls myself. Folks are in complete denial when it comes to those dogs. People advocate for these dogs but there is one story after the other of them being violent as hell. They damn near needed the jaws of life to pry that dog off the other.

  • Parent

    Oh my God, the dog is leaking... I get it people love their dogs but they should not be in stores. They are animals for a reason. I don't trust animals, especially birds and cats.

  • Carrington

    The sound of a dog screaming is the scariest thing ever!

  • Yardgirl

    That was how my god daughter's chihuahua Simba rolled. He would be at the screen door showing off like he would just devour all of the big dogs walking by DWL Little dog syndrome I guess!

  • Phil Mccrackenzme

    It amazes me how pet owners put so much confidence in these aggressive breeds. They will even have them around their small children. Can you imagine if that was a child??

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Scared the heck out of me and broke my heart

  • Kimocha

    Lmaooo!... Yes they say most chihuahua's think they big and bad, lol!!!

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I don’t do dogs. Nope! I like a clean house. I don’t even like going over folks’ houses that have pets particularly dogs.

  • dru and neil

    Not true, sorry. I knew a woman whose pit bulls attacked her and she loved them dearly. I know people want to defend pit bulls, I get it, they have these big wide mouths and it looks like they are smiling and it’s so cute but they are still dangerous.

  • Rayne

    If the mofo is taller than my ankle I cross the street. Period!

  • Reenaface

    Lord, that was disturbing to watch. Maybe Petco should rethink their policies on letting animals of all breeds into the store. Some of those breeds don't mix and could fight each other. And just what were the staff doing to assist, looks like they were standing around barely assisting.

  • Reenaface

    No cats either?

  • Reenaface

    I get nervous when I see random clips on YouTube or Instagram of small children and dogs interacting.

  • xxxgracious

    ????? omg so it wasnt just mine doing that too.

    So one of em was tryna get a kiss and got bit huh

    In other news a bih from the UK married her dog on TV... I hope they investigate her ass for bestiality cause I'm willing to bet she consummated their union with sexx

  • MJF

    it's a scare tactic for dogs, they hate that noise so I guess the workers were trying anything to diffuse the fight.

  • Renee26

    LMAO

  • Renee26

    ? ion think she did

  • starbright9449

    You would have to kill someone if you're dog went and irritated another dog? Its good you don't take it cause the smart thing to do is not bring the dog or hold it in your arms so it doesn't approach another dog talking smack.

  • MJF

    Exactly!

  • Renee26

    True

  • Reenaface

    This is one of the reasons why I miss Judge Joe Brown's show. If it was a pet case he would pull up his statistics on pet injuries and would go hard on the owners who had pitbulls and would tell them how dangerous it was followed making them pay high court costs.

  • starbright9449

    People swear their dogs aren't violent and won't attack unless triggered but they sing a different tone when their dog attacks someone unprovoked.

  • starbright9449

    Obviously it wasn't working.

  • starbright9449

    Lol

  • Kellsonthe1sand2s
  • Renee26

    They do play aggressively. My friends had 2 at one point. Both rescues and they would scare me when they played. They still have 1, the sweet one, the other was nice too but she was a bully and would eat both their meals. The other one would just look sad and suffer in silence. She's my baby, I'm not afraid of her but generally I'm afraid of big dogs of any breed.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Euthanize those beasts

  • dru and neil

    You’re right, and the owners and people who advocate for pit bulls become VERY defensive when you try to bring up their violent reputation. I thought about getting one at one time because they are always in need of adoption, but if the dog got loose, and anything happened to my neighbors small kids, I would be to blame. I don’t think these dogs belong around children.

  • dru and neil

    I remember when I was living in England, they didn’t even allow pit bulls, they didn’t even play that.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    "We're relieved to report that the two dogs involved in an incident at our Erie store are recovering well at home with their pet parents,"
    ^^^^^^
    Its gonna happen again and when it DOES put em down and charge those "pet parents"

  • EasyBreezy

    Yes. What?

  • Renee26

    ??? I need a better visual; did you make it up there in one big leap or climb on chairs??

  • EasyBreezy

    Especially because they are Pits. And people say that breed can be gentle. Not in my house or neighborhood...

  • Virgoqween

    I mean you can you just gotta be real enough to stand by them even if others get their feelings hurt.

  • Renee26

    Tippy the Turtle ? too cute

  • Ghetto Real Name

    This my great aunt chihuahua. Pepe. So so MEAN and BAD. Lord have mercy. Such alot of BARK

  • C Mack

    Exactly why she said she leaves her dog at home lol

  • Bushbabe

    I miss my Bluenose Pitty Sugar. Some animals are aggressive like some humans are. This type of video gives the breed a bad name. They are wonderful and protective animals.

  • Yardgirl

    Mean but so frigging cute at the same time lol!!

  • Renee26

    They acted like that mace was water...had to get in their noses to be effective

  • Yup, I said it

    Pets are just like with humans with their kids, everybody dont have home training. These airplanes and stores expects everyone to have properly trained animals when most of these muthafuckas children act like this in the stores. All the people I know with dogs and only a handful actually take their dogs to the vet. They don't get their shots and flea treatments either.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You're right. It was water.

  • leapyearpisces

    see this is why I don't fugg wit folks and those aggressive breed dogs, or just plain old big dogs, folks love to say awww he won't hurt you... LIES!!!! he won't hurt YOU, because YOU are his master...when a dog wants to go to war, they don't give a HOT DAMN who its against. That's why I get so pissed off when I see women, especially little women with these big azz dogs that are basically WALKING THEM...you can't tell my shat about that dog not hurting me..because TRUST and BELIEVE if something were to pop off your little behind aint gonna be able to STOP it..miss me with the bullshat, and yeah, I may be a little bias, because I was attacked by a dog in college when I went to run up to a girl to show her my test grade and I guess her dog thought I was running up to harm her, he was a big dog, and he when I ran towards her he jumped up on me, pushed me on the ground and proceeded to take a bite out of my side....I have been afraid of big dogs every since, and that's the way Its gonna stay. I carry mase and a stun gun at all times, and don't give not nary ONE FUGG about sizzling and blinding somebody's AGGRESSIVE azz canine.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    yeah I had to put mine down because she attacked my neighbors dog twice :( dug a hole under the fence and everything. Phucked that poor dog up. I had to pay the vet fees, pound fees, and was arrested for a dog leash violation that she broke twice ( 3 days apart).

    I miss her but I couldn't chance it. They're sweet dogs though :(

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Wait you got arrested? Im sorry to hear this sis

  • Yup, I said it

    I personally think that all these new policies of allowing people to bring their dogs is a way for them the have a sort of guard dog or protection like the dope boys used to do in the hood. I don't trust these racist and their equally racists ass dogs anywhere near me.

  • Ghetto Real Name
  • Cali

    Stop describing it bih ? you phuckin watched it sicko

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    yes sis after she broke the leash the second time and went back in my neighbors yard and attacked the dog again :( she had to go after that. Never had any problems out of her but she hated that dog for some reason

  • Carrington

    Updated statistics: of ALL fatal dog attacks: 66% are from Pit Bulls. The next highest number of dog murderers are Rottweilers at 10% followed by 4.6% from German Shepherds. Of the 100% of fatal dog attacks across ALL breeds - Pit Bulls account for 66% BY THEMSELVES... and you're talking about "what about German Shepherds? Let that sink in for a second.

    If you had one million dollars and I have 4.6% of that, then I have $46K - is there even a comparison conversation?

    Would you look at me like I was crazy if I tried to compare my $46K to your million dollars?

  • Queen B

    Exactly!! ?? I say that all the time "that's ur dog, he won't bite u but dont fvcks with me so he'll tear my ass up" i tell ppl all the time that dogs can't talk they can't tell me they're having a bad day or don't like my spirit so therefore he will attack me! I got attacked by a neighbor's dog that my family agreed to dog sit when i was in the 10th grade. We were feeding that mf'er every day and we had just bath him and he still went in on my ass. That fool went postal and attacked my brother and my mom the same day lol

  • leapyearpisces

    OMG!!! See???? My deddy had to put his last Chow down after he attacked my deddy. That thang hurt him so bad when Raleigh came to get him the next day. He hasn't own a dog since, and I grew up with every kind of dog under the sun. I trust NO animal, not even my Granddragon KKK cat. Hell, ESPECIALLY my Granddragon KKK cat. Animals are that...animals they do not have reasoning skills. They act on instinct, and if they perceive you as a threat for WHATEVER reason, you gonna catch that heat, and they don't care WHO you are and WHAT you have done for them. When mofos will kill and EAT they own damn kids, you KNOW damn well, they won't think twice about hurting you. That was sad though (about the girl).

  • leapyearpisces

    Right! and sometimes it could be your smell or anything. I remember one day, I was running and these dogs started going crazy and I know it was because they could smell my cat's pheromone on me, now humans can't smell it, but those dogs could and they were going beserk, but once again, like I said I stay maced and tasered up, and that's what cats do, that's why they rub against your legs, to get their pheromones on you....so when you out and about other animals know you are taken (LOL). Its true though what you said, about them having bad days, and what not I never thought about that.

  • lovelygamour

    I had a cat and when I went to pet supplies plus I would ask what type of dogs are in the store. I actually bought food in bulk. People are stupid. Why would they chance their dogs fighting. Cause they wanted the excitement. I don't blame Petco but I notice they have more stupid pet owners then the other brands.

  • Logan Roberts

    I don't mess with pitbulls EVER. I remember 4 years ago I called out from work, because two big pitbulls were running loose around my condo complex. I wasn't going downstairs or to work that day. Periodt.

  • lovelygamour

    that's what the usa should do. We have so many scary people here. They want to cause trouble and then hide behind guns, dogs, laws, anything but themselves.

  • Kimberly Jones

    Once they lock jaws, it is hell to get them off without causing even further injury! smh

  • lovelygamour

    I shy away from those owners. I just find them to be delusional.

  • lovelygamour

    how much could they do? That was a life and death situation. that's why bully breeds shouldn't mix in a store setting.

  • Yup, I said it

    I just dont understand the obsession with pets. I see people in Walmart with their dogs in the shopping carts. People have to put their food and meats in those same carts and this joker has their dog with shitty covered paws and shedding fur all up in it. It makes no sense the obsession these people have.

  • Renee26

    Oh well they should've been using mace ?

  • Yup, I said it

    Now Im gonna have to carry a machete or military blade to protect me from pets in the pharmacy.

    Judge Milian (whom I met when I watched a taping of people’s court) doesn’t play that pit bulls are harmless bs either. When children got facial stitches and watch their pets get killed by a pit, she recommends the dogs get put down if they haven’t already.

  • Carrington

    STFU! Where did I describe it you dumb f*ck! I didn't even click on the video. How TF do you get me saying that the sound of screaming dog is scary as me watching the video? I'll BET you hear that you're crazy as f*ck often - but you don't believe it, do you? LOL

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I agree. I don’t see how folks let pets on their furniture or even in their homes without wiping off the bottom of their feet. My bf’s sister has a little cutesy dog-it had a turd hanging on its hair while inside the house. Couldn’t be me.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Hell naw! Can’t take the shedding, smell of kitty litter or the odor of the animal.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I completely blame the owners. If you know that tour dog is dog reactive, dont bring them in the store with other dogs without a muzzle. This could have been avoided. I would have went straight to the vet, took my pup home and made sure he was as comfortable as possible, called a family member to pet sit and went straight to my lawyer's office. EVERYBODY'S GETTING SUED.

    I didn't watch the video. I love dogs too much. But I had a pit bull try to come after my dog in PetSmart and I put my dog in the buggy and pulled the knife out while we were trying to walk in....

  • Yup, I said it

    Those are called dingle berries. They wipe their azzzz all over your couch and carpets after they poop. When they drag their buts on the carpets they are draining/scratching their anal sac all over your carpet. The pet groomers are supposed to drain them for them. Female cats and dogs have menstrual periods too. I am disgusted at how cats lick themselves all day. Their fur is literally covered in dried saliva, that blows all over your house when they shed. Then the folks will pets in their house be the first to suggest a company potluck. No ma'am.

Everyone was in the lobby screaming and carrying on.. I was in the back file room.. I flew out there and just out my hands on SADIES snout and pulled her mouth open. that was bad too

    lemme tell you, one morning me/hubby were walking our dog.. walked pass CVS and CVS was having a Pet Vet on wheels day or something of that nature.. All the dogs/owners were standing against the wall on leashes. this YT ladies dog flew out of her grasp and went to lung at my dog, me and my hubby were both kicking that fuKer in the face. the YT lady was screaming FIDOOO

    I cussed her out terribly.

  • the guest

    Thank you.

    I didn't see diffusing in that video. I saw watching and encouraging those poor animals to fight. Most times dogs, even pitbulls, take their cues from their owners. Seems to me if the owners were sincerely fostering those dogs to get along those dogs would not have been fighting. The humans in that video seemed to get a kick out of the dog fight in a Petco. Shame on them.

  • Yup, I said it

    Alot of white people, especially white women own pit bulls that they cant control either. The ones owned by women tend to be super aggressive towards men especially black men from my experience

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I have French Bulldogs who lock also. I plug their nostrils until they let go. These owners were idiots and have no business with a pittie.

  • FrenchBulldog

    You are so right!

    I did not see anyone that was anything other than afraid. They truly did not know what to do. That male was a bruiser who could had taken someone's arm off had he let go and grabbed onto them instead. Idiots.

    It is all in training, I walk my baby everyday without her lead on her, I keep it in my hand, and can leave her at the front window of a store, people walk by her and she will not move, I don't allow people to touch her however , I have even had cops, and people tell me how well behaved she is, she will not bark , move or eat anything off the ground or from other people. Again it is all in how you raise them.....

  • Yup, I said it

    Pet Smart isnt paying those kids enough to break up mess like this. If I worked at Pet Smart they would have to provide a Platnium medical plan package, 70% LTD and 90% STD pay, hazard pay, protective gear and a six figure salary. I wouldnt get in between 2 fighting pitbulls for a measly $12.50/hr.

  • TransMichelle

    That's what I like about The Donald. "He says what he says" and that's it. We need more REAL men standing up. No I'm not a trànny. LOL

  • Allihave2say

    I have two fur babies. They have limitations on who they are willing to socialize with and I respect their responses and control their movements. I don't allow the social sniffing if there's a hint of aggression.

    When dogs are fighting pour water on their noses they will release (when teeth are locked, they have to let go to breathe).
    If you see an unfamiliar dog, and your dog's demeanor changes he has sensed a problem respect that and walk the other way calmly.

  • n1kk1a

    Exactly.

  • Bonita

    I have 2 as well. I didn't think about the water thing, but it makes sense. I'll keep that in mind.

  • Bonita

    Wow! I wish mine would were that obedient. What breed do you have?

  • Sushi
  • Bonita

    I used to take my dogs to Petsmart and there was only one young lady I would let groom them, because she was a sweetheart and my boys loved her. But once she left, they no longer went. I would observe the other groomers in there and they would be mean to those dogs. Now I groom my dogs myself, cause groomers will act real friendly in your face, and switch it up when you leave.

  • Bonita

    You don't worry that the dog might unlock so quickly that it will then lock onto your hand?

  • Bonita

    LOL@ "FIDOOO"

  • Bonita

    Y'alls stories gonna make me start carrying my pepper spray going forward when I walk my boys.

  • Bonita

    Damn, not the hammer!

  • Bonita

    You taught me something, because I always wondered why cats rub up against people like that.

  • chris

    Sorry to hear that happened to you. My dog is the same way if someone runs up on me he might react but he is less than 20 pounds and doesn't bite. Big animals are dangerous I don't care what they are.

  • Guest©

    We are living in a day that the Bible spoke of. Wrong is now right, and right is now wrong, (Isaiah 5:20). I know everyone does not subscribe to Christianity but one must admit that the Bible is turning out to be spot on when predicting the current age.

  • FrenchBulldog

    There is always a chance of injury when dealing with dogs. They get into a frenzy. French Bulldogs are all the rage, but general public truly have no clue just how strong their jaw power is, as well as their scrappy personalities. I have bred and shown Frenchies for over 20 years and seen a lot. I keep certain of dogs separated because I know what a grudge Frenchies can hold. Bitches are by far the worst. I just feel sorry for the pitbulls who really get such a bad rap. They are a wonderful breed and problem is worse that people are trying to save the breed, thus compelling them to adopt with no real working knowledge on what to do should that dog snap and/or be attacked and have to defend itself.

  • FrenchBulldog

    I totally agree. The owners were responsible for defusing this situation.

  • Bonita

    I've never been a fan of cats. They're too sneaky for my liking. There's been lots of stories in the news about cats snapping and attacking their owners. And when they attack and you get them off of you, they don't stop. They may take a short break, and then they start attacking yo ass again. People have reported having to run to other parts of the house, shut the door, and call for help cause they won't stop attacking.

  • Junkanoo

    America has literally gone to the dogs an entire big box store specifically for selling products for dogs and cats and other pets . Peoples dogs have better health care than some Americans its pure madness .

  • Bonita

    Every pit owner I've encountered always says how sweet that breed is, yet they have a reputation of turning on their owners. I've never heard of another breed who does that. I don't find anything about an unpredictable temperament as being sweet. I'd be paranoid as hell that one day it would turn on me.

  • Bonita

    Awww! I have an old stubborn Shih Tzu and my other is a Labradoodle. Now my Labradoodle who is only 5 months is doing very well on his training. But I don't trust that he'll get to the level of obedience of yours, cause he's so clumsy and goofy.

  • Sushi

    Here is the trick, remain consistent, with everything, I was really strict on her. She does not go in my kitchen, get on my funiture. When I walk her I trained her to stop at a traffic light and not to move, if at any point she steps out of line there is a consequence, normally me beating her A@@

  • Just Ice

    They're suppose to have muzzles on!

  • TheRealTW

    Where I live mostly our people have pit bulls. They are mainly used for fighting.

  • TheRealTW

    That's why they have them.

  • TheWildChild

    All them dummies in that store couldn't go a grab a 'break stick' ? standing there with that horn and lemon water spray. Look how the oh so 'sweet' dogs disobeying their loving caring owners who raised them so well. Those damn dogs are so unpredictable, even most Vets will take em' out by any force necessary if they come up in their office with that nonsense. PetSmart need a new policy banning aggressive breeds from their stores. ?

  • Judi Jupiter

    My babe goes to PetSmart too. His groomer pets him and CARRIES him to the back and he's almost 30 lbs. Something about their relationship he says... I took him once and his groomer had a family emergency so the other tried to take my dog back by grabbing him by the neck and my dog bit his ass. He looked at me like I'm supposed to control him. I said if someone snatched you up by the back of the neck what would you do??? They put us out and told me I couldn't come back until his groomer was back..

  • Judi Jupiter

    Yall all so nice... if that pit had locked on my dog like that and blood was everywhere he'd be complete lights out.. cuz I carry a GLOCK for that ish... and that includes humans... my friend asked me if I leave it in the house. I looked at her and said the ONLY time Purple Haze is not within 20 ft of me is when I'm using the bathroom....and even then it's in a reasonable running reach... when I move to and from/up and down the house, if it's going to be for more than an hour, it's by my side...

  • Yup, I said it

    Hell they have documented history of wolves protecting human kids but would I bring a wolf up in my house around my kids heck no. Its still wolf.

  • Judi Jupiter

    Ppl laugh because I keep baby wipes by the door for this reason for my dog

  • Judi Jupiter

    Shoot I saw a man at work smell his dingle berries on.his hands coming out the bathroom. He won the chili cookout potluck. My coworker looked at me and was like you should try it...um ... negative...

  • Judi Jupiter

    Yes... mine is a Lhasa apso and jack Russell mix, and he tried to attack a great Dane at the vet..like foaming at the mouth like Cujo and everything. Had to carry him out of there

  • Yup, I said it

    Rednecks fight pits too. Now that the stores are allowing these dogs in to stores we will see more people with dogs they use a fighting dogs bring theres into the stores also. These stores have no policy or structure around pets now. THose hoarders with fleabags and mange covered dogs and cats are starting to bring their pets into stores too.

  • Lady Brooks

    So you all fail to recognize that this was at a Petco not Petsmart and for all the, "I'd do and this is how you do..." there are rules that a bunch of people way higher up the company make that if you dont follow you get fired. Also, training: yes! 100% everytime but "beating them": people that train that way dont deserve a dog.

  • the guest

    Omg. What a darling dog in her gingham sundress!

  • Sushi

    Thank you

  • the guest

    You're very welcome!

  • PrettyNetty28

    Thanks.

  • Zeta Aggie

    I’d rather a dog than a vengeful human with a gun.

  • Zeta Aggie

    True. My American pit was super friendly and loved my landscapers. One day this guy wandered into the back yard to presumably access the cable box for my neighbor. Lucy looked at him, low growl and headed his way. I had to lunge to get her to calm down. She didn’t stop until he was out of sight lol. Dogs know.

  • Zeta Aggie

    They are super intelligent too.

  • Fire & Ice

    I'm just glad no one got hurt ?

  • Bonita

    Okay. I'll have to work on certain areas with my pup. I'm stern, but I let up off his neck sometimes which is ultimately inconsistent.

  • Bonita

    He deserved to get bit! Stuff like that pisses me off.

  • Bonita

    I had no idea that French Bulldogs had such powerfall jaws. I guess I underestimated their strength, cause they're so fat and cute.

  • Sushi

    I hope it works. just to let you know how strict I am I had to check a couple of people that gave her table food and then after I checked them I beat her... It seems harsh but if you put table food in front of her and leave she will not touch it.... and keep them stilettos in his neck...lol

  • Bonita

    lol I don't blame you. I leave my gun at home cause I don't have a conceal carry license.

  • AveIvy

    Both will kill you.

  • Solo

    Pit Bulls are known for not liking other dogs, especially their own breed. Some are cool until one day, they see another pit and for whatever reason, they will immediately go to one another. It's the main reason shelters are hesitant to adopt out a pit to a home that already has one. That's not to say that they can't live in the same home, it's easy if if it's a boy & girl. But you gotta know your dog - especially a pit, it's temperment and how it responds to other bully breeds. Unless one of the owners had just gotten either dog, they should have known the chances of running into a bully breed at a pet store might be a problem. That's an extremely dangerous situation for everyone including kids that may just happen to be walking by when something like this happens. It's scary that people get these dogs and don't know how to handle them. They can be wonderful companions but it could be game over if you don't know what you're doing. In my city, 3 adults are now charged with the fatal mauling of 3 yr. old that the dog had previously attacked. It was running around the house with the kid in its mouth like a toy. Smh. Everyone in the neighborhood knew about this dog and had run ins but never called animal control. The mom, granddad & the dog's owner are all facing manslaughter charges among other offenses. They still allowed the child to be in the house with that dog after the 1st attack!!!

  • Solo

    If you don't know the dogs, and even if you do, one or both could redirect to the person trying to stop the fight. Redirecting is when they can't get to the other so you become the next best option. Bully breeds are known for this. If you've had one for some time, then you should have some idea of how you pit reacts once they're in that mode.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    She is TOO cute

  • Solo

    Low growls always mean get the h#ll away now, but never, ever ever turn your back on a dog that's signaling it may attack!!! People often miss those type of growls bc they are so low. I had a dog do it to me but I didn't hear it until I was few inches away from him. I stood up, backed out of its kennel and thanked Jesus it didn't come after me.

  • Solo

    Sometimes even that won't work. Snd you may need to go for a bat. I would say baton but people don't walk around with those.

  • Solo

    The lawyers have already laid all that out in training. They don't the additional lawsuits. All pet owners should recognize what could potentially happen to their dog in a pet store or pet friendly business. Enter at your pet's caution.

  • Solo

    That's can happen. And it sound like that's what happened in this case, and sadly that usually mean until one or the other is dead. I hope that dog made it but bleeding out and advised to get to an emergency vet doesn't sound good.

  • Solo

    Glad you know your your stuff. Please, keep sharing when you can bc the average person has no clue of what could happen in a pet store.

  • Solo

    They're too busy loving on them instead of establishing themselves as alpha, and then things like this happen.

  • Solo

    It's a socio economic thing in my city. White, black, hispanic.... everyone wants a pit. The the newness wheres iff, they have no training and end up in the shelter & it's hard to get them adopted bc they don't know not to jump on people, they're mouthy which most mistake for the dog trying to bite them, or they are terrified of a leash bc they've never seen one before. Its said bc 80-90% of the dogs at the local shelter are pit mixes so they're the first to be put down simply bc no one wants to adopt an untrained bully breed with inappropriate behavior unless they are experienced with them & have the time to work with them. They are amazing dogs... with the right owner.

  • Solo

    A fight to the death.

  • Solo

    Blow horns are good, too. Sometimes they are stunned by it and will stop long enough to get them away from one another.

  • Solo

    So many questions? Not enough time to ask all of them. ???

  • Solo

    Thank goodness. I hope the parents learned a lesson and are thanking Jesus that their dog is still alive. I hope animal control was called. Follow ups are needed.

  • Solo

    I'm sorry that happened with your girl. She must have had a very high prey drive. Im glad you were a responsible pet owner and did the right thing.

  • Solstice

    LMMFAO!!! I can just picture you and your husband kicking that damn dog ????!!!

  • Solo

    You have to establish yourself as alpha with the ones with a more aggressive temperament. Sometimes irresponsible owners know the dog is off in the head, it may have even bitten them before but they ignore it until something tragic happens. It's not just pits though, most don't know that next to pits... it's the German shepherds and chihuahuas you need to watch out for... they by the most after pits... but pits are the most overbred dog all across America, which is why they are number 1 for bites. If your pit isn't right mentally you've got to do the right thing and put it down. They jaws are powerful and they do major damage. I know, I'm currently recovering from getting bit on the lips by a pit. I ended up with more than 100 stitches and will need reconstructive surgery after a year of healing. It was definitely traumatic but even after being attacked, I realize it was that particular dog and not the entire breed. The blame rests on the owner's shoulders when things like this happen.

  • Solo

    The 3 options after giving verbal commands are usually blow horn, then water, then baton. It's a problem if even one of these options doesn't work. That's a dangerous dog that in almost every situation, should be put down.

  • Solstice
  • Solstice

    Good for you!!! My husband is the exact same. It moves with him room to room, car to car and state to state. Via gun case.

  • Solo

    Where'd you pull those stats? Keep in mind, pits are the most overbred dogs in America and 80-90% of the dogs in the shelter are pits, so that is why they are number one for dogs bites. There are 5-6 breeds that are all considered to be pits/bully breeds (American bulldog, boxer). If it looks like a pit its labeled one, so that contributes to them being no. 1. for bites; and it's just easier that way for the homeowners insurance companies that don't want to take on liability so they ban all "aggressive breeds." German shepherds and chihuahuas are usually next, but that depends on where you live. Rotties aren't even in the top 5 where I live bc it's not a popular breed. People don't take pet ownership seriousl. Bad owners hold all the blame for not putting down a bully breed that shows any sign of being a danger to the public. These dogs can do far too much damage to be complacent.

    Lmao I bet precisely 1 hour before this, the owners were on Facebook spamming anti-pitbull comments with photos of their "angel" saying "MY BABY IS THE SWEETEST! PITBULLS ARE NOT AGGRESSIVE! IF YOU THINK OTHERWISE YOU'RE IGNORANT! MY BABY WOULD NEVER HURT A FLEA!"

    Lol my dog is the same way. He's been well trained to socialize with other dogs and always tries to play first with new dogs he meets. But if someone suddenly runs up on me or a dog gets aggressive, his training goes out the window cause his instincts kick in, and there is no getting rid of that.

  • Yardgirl

    Wow I did not know that about the French Bulldog!! Thanks!

  • sunni_daze

    Well clearly they have never been in this situation before, because blowing a horn and spraying water or whatever it is, doesn't work.

  • sunni_daze

    False. I have 3 pitt bulls and they all live together peacefully, even the more aggressive one. A dog is like a child and if you raise them to be hostile and aggressive that is what they will be.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Amen!!! Speak it! Cause they have forgot n lost their way!

  • Solo

    Please check out my previous comment where I went into detail about this.
    It is true that THE MAJORITY of pits ARE NOT dog friendly. But that doesn't mean you can't have multiple pits in the same home. Do a quick Google search and read up on it. I work at an animal shelter
    I know what I'm talking about...but it sounds like you're an experienced pit owner. We need more people like you to give them a chance.

  • CookieMobster

    If you have not been around dog and don't know how to properly train and socialize a dog like this you have no business owning one. My Manny was the sweetest most precious dog ever. He would not harm a fly. My mom's Maltese used to crawl his a$$ and he never did anything. He even loved and cared for our rabbit. But that is because I properly trained and socialized him when he was a baby. And I got that a$$ all the way together when he messed up. He has gone into heaven now due to cancer but he still lives in my heart. RIP https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1b01685133fc5171c06906c785fd561a23720699d8d3fc3cbe4d001fc216b077.jpg

    Misleading!! One of the dogs is a BULLDOG not a Pitbull and obviously the aggressor. Stop the hate spreading and Shame on all of you who are falling right into it. No dog is “bred to fight” or “naturally aggressive” they’re either trained or not!! Stop living your life in fear. People see one dog attack someone and assume all dogs are bad but let thousands of people die without banning guns SICK
