Before I even began reading about the poor little girl attacked by a dog, I knew it had to be a rottweiler or pitbull or a mix of those breeds.

I hear people say, “Oh, it will never bite or attack anyone. It’s a good dog.”

They are not good dogs; they can’t be trusted. We should have a law for people who own these types of dogs. Maybe they need to pay a special fee for owning these dogs, such as maybe a $1,000 for a license or some kind of insurance.

Too many people and children are hurt and killed by these animals, including some owners who get attacked by their own pet. They are just very aggressive dogs.
