My dog bit me and drew blood - should I put it down?


Today, the dog bit me. Hard. On the thumb, deep puncture wound and black and blue mark on the nail. I thoughtlessly took a big bone away from her without testing first how Jackie would react. Because it wasn't dog food that she gulped down in 3 seconds - I took the bone by my hand while she was chewing. It hurt bad. Later still upset, I called the former owner. He lied to me. He had to hesistate befoer answering my question, "Has the dog ever bit a human before?" He said, "Errr ... not that I recall." He is full of crap. This in one thing that is not int the training books. Please help.

    This was no puppy and I returned it to the owner via the pound because I really didn't want to return to that the dog to that crazy woman who abused it in the first place. I wrote a long story about it, "Adopting a Problem Dog" I have a chug now.

    Yeah, that's want a lot of people said to me. I must've grew up spoiled because all the dogs were good and soft mouth.
