The guy was willing to give it to anyone who wanted it as long as they come and picked it up within 24 hours. If no one claimed it he was going to take it into the forest and shoot it. Apparently it bit a neighbors kid who tried to pet it thru the fence. The dog also growled at the new baby twice in the last week. Sad some breeders will sell to anyone.

Dog was clawed up and had 2 puncture wounds in the skull. Dog had a severe infection in the bite wound , But it lived. It never was the same dog however and was pretty much afraid of it's own shadow.

This also happens to most victims of crime or street beatings.
I had one such case involving someone being attacked and beaten pretty bad in the workplace.
He had difficulty functioning in all aspects of life. I had the worker's compensation claim on this. We had shrinks upon shrinks and work rehab on this hapless victim. Pretty bad.
Could happen to any of us.
I respectfully challenge that assertion.
