AJ will be crossing the Bridge later this morning. He has been dog agressive most of his life. I have carefully shielded other dogs from him and have never had any worries about his behavior with people.
Early yesterday evening, he delivered a Level Four bite to one of my friends. She didn't do anything aggressive toward him, nor did she move suddenly in his direction. She only reached for his collar. His bite was so fast and so vicious, it was completely unavoidable for her. He sunk his teeth into her arm and clamped down as hard as he could.
I cannot justify this bite and I cannot allow him another opportunity to deliver a similar bite, or worse, to anyone else. It is with a very heavy heart that I'm doing my best to make tonight the best night of his life. He's getting steak, potatoes, dog cookies, loves, pets and his choice of bed for the night.
when business opens later this morning, I will take him to the vet and say goodbye to my friend.
