No matter how you look at this whether or not the dog 'gave a warning' it is still a dangerous animal that should not have been in a situation where it could attack the child.
guard dogs are trained to grab, yank and shake arms or legs of invaders. So yes, it is okay for the dog to yank around an intruder's arms or legs.

Do you have any proof that this particular pitbull was a trained guard dog?

I didn't say it was. I was giving a possible reason as to why the dog may have attacked the child.

Just because it is a trained guard dog does not mean it has the right to threaten public safety and for all you know the dog in question may not even be a trained guard dog.

A trained guard dog in his own home isn't a treat for public safety.

Well if the dog in question was a trained guard dog then it obviously was a threat to public safety! The dog was in it's own home and the child is a member of the public!!!!

Don't worry, it's over. The horse is dead, no need to beat it anymore.

Sorry, I can't find the official news story without spending more than 5 minutes, but here are a couple:

Video link removed

In light of that last citation, it cracks me up that this thread is titled "hated for no reason". Count the number of buried children, and that gives me a reason. Maybe not FishyFishy since she believes 3-year-olds shouldn't be able to play in their own back yards unless they have a thorough understanding of dogs they cannot even see through their own fence, but hey, maybe the rest of us care.

But when you get worked up about this, folks, rest easy. We're working on the laws, and we will get them passed. Just like the UK did, just like all sensible places do. It's just a short matter of time. Besides, having been married to a police officer who loves dogs, I trust them to do what has to be done sometimes. They're experts at "body language".
