Noted and Signed. The sad truth is that if the dog nipped only, it was probably just excited and wanted to get the person's attention. Okay? No. Worth killing it over? Ridiculous. If they were intent on attack, the person would not be standing, so they're obviously NOT aggressive. They just need some exercise and stronger fencing. The owner could obviously be helped with that.

Noted as well !! Only a nip ..... and only ONE dog actually did it anyway .... yet they want to euthanize BOTH ?? Neither should be PTS and the owner has done all the necessary to try to prevent them even getting out again - this is downright RIDICULOUS !!! Those dogs should be reunited with their owner NOW, never mind (maybe) in 3 months time !!!!!!!! Thanks for posting Cal !!

People commit much worse crimes than this and yet are not given a death penalty because they are sacred humans. Well, I am pretty damned sick of sacred humans. These tow dogs nipped someone and they are supposed to die? I hate injustice of any kind but I also really do not like the humans species much. Talk about privileged and self righteous (although there are plenty of humans who suffer at the hands of others).Still I think the world would be better without us.

Thanks for posting Cal. The city of Richmond has gone off the deep end on this one. First, it was only the one dog that bit someone and the man who was bitten says it was minor and does not want the dogs euthanized. Second, the dog who bit the man bit another dog several year ago but again not seriously. The people who own the dogs seem very responsible and I am sure they would take any action, including installing higher fencing in their yard, to save the lives of their dogs. The dog who did not bite anyone or any animal is being treated the very same as the dog who did. The owners are not being allowed to visit the dogs while they are being quarantined. This is really nuts.

Rotts are usually very sweet dogs. People give them a bad name because they are big and scary looking. Just like Pitbulls. Many people train them to be fighters, MEAN guard dogs because they are big and tough. It's certain select people who turn dogs mean, the dogs aren't mean because of the breed.

Anyone who has known Rotts well, owned them, didn't mistreat them or get one that had been abused prior, knows they aren't inherently mean. If you have had an isolated incident with a rott where it bit you or someone you know, it's just that, an isolated incident. You're more likely to be bitten by one of the more high-strung breeds than one of these big lugs.

Seems excessive. If the target person doesn't have a problem with the incident, the city seems to be going beyond reasonable action. Perhaps a warning notice would've been appropriate, but Rottweilers are supposed to be a "dangerous" breed, hence a possible fear/over-reaction on some city official's part.

Actually any large or powerful breed of dog could be dangerous if neglected or mistreated or trained to be so. In the same way, with appropriate socialisation and training, any dog can be perfectly safe for all concerned. The owners' have done the right thing, future incidents should now be avoided. They should probably exercise the dogs more regularly too, happy dogs are usually not bored.

Mayor Brodie, please free the dogs and return them to their responsible owners!

Let's see how much humans can overreact. If the VICTIM does not want them euthanized, what is the problem?
Glad your post is getting so much attention. I posted the same one and it was not the hit yours was. It must get as much exposure as possible! Poor sweet pups. Never met a rottie that was not a giant marshmallow.
