I had a dog that for some reason he didn't like people weraing uniforms. The 1st time he bit someone I wrote it off as a fluke as the guy stepped over him while he was sleeping. The second time I was taking with a mechanic and he turned to leave and the dog bit him with out any warning and quickly. That dog was put down
You see, my dog LOVES people in uniform. When some Reserve Forces people walked by her after a parade, she started whining, trying to go see them haha.
But my aunt owned a naturally aggressive German Sheppard. They tryed there hardest to keep her put of trouble, and they did. They lived on a large piece of property in the country so there luckily wasn't many people around generally. They also had there kids trained on how to deal with the dog, and trained the dog to leave the kids alone. The one thing I know for sure is if she had attacked someone, or became to dangerous, they would have had her put down. They actully put her down when she was 12. She was loosing either her sight or her hearing, and was becoming more aggressive, so they made the call and had her put down.
