    I watched this a few times. Wish there was a bit more footage. And I’m curious to exactly how much damage was caused. – Although none of this is really surprising. Lesson: never put your face in a dogs face that you don’t know. They have teeth you know. :)

    So you do a news report about the harrowing rescue of this dog and now you signed his death sentence because you were too dumb to realize to not put your face up to his jaw. A little ironic don’t you think? He’s a mastiff with his owner, you never put your face up to his mouth. Hello? And now this dog and his owner have to suffer because you are dumb ass? It makes me disgusted that you would even think about putting him down after what they’ve been through. I don’t think the owner would have gone on the show if he thought he was signing his dog’s death sentence. Your stupid face will heal. The scar of losing a loved one (his dog) wont. I think the owner and his dog have been through enough and now you have to ad more emotional trauma to him and his family. I’m utterly disgusted by this!

      I could not of said It better. Why was she down on the ground with her face to the dog.
      Not to place blame on the owner, but please people we need to protect our animals and If there are those in which have no clue as to how to properly approach and behave around a unfamiliar animal they must be told ! And then she goes in for the kiss. Really come on lady.
      I would like to know where she is today and hope she has enough sence to stand up for the owner and his dog, to admit that she was clearly in the wrong. This should be a lesson learned for the many more people out there, who need to learn how to properly greet and meet any dog that is not your own.
