O my god. Good to know they didn't just kill Bruce. If I could take him home I would. On another topic.. people this has really gone way to far. I was thinking the BS would stop after a day of bickering but obviously I was wrong. It does not do anything for anyone to come on here and bad mouth others. This is rather disappointing to see that ultimately this amazing sweet and lovley dog will have to die and this girl will heal and move on, but what's done is done. Hopefully Aarf will stop helping the government by letting strangers volunteer with their organization. I know it would reduce a lot if stress not only for the organization but for the dogs. Anyway I have a vested interest in all of the animals who are in need in our area and hate to see anything like this happening. All I have to say now is just stop bitching back and forth it's rather stupid considering the situation it arose from.

Volunteers and "workers" at Aarf, including those who are sent there by a government assistance program, MUST sign a waiver. Supervisor or not, it's a volunteer program and everyone who is kind enough to go in there as a "volunteer" and also those sent by the government know the risks involved. A lawsuit against AARF is ludicrous for this reason. People are there alone all the time, and sometimes someone does get bitten because they are not being cautious or because a dog has been abused and is terrified of humans. But a lawsuit? It's a charity organization!! Not only would that 'lawsuit' go
very bad for her, but my guess is with the waiver, they would laugh in her face. Hope she is feeling better and has a speedy recovery. But I also hope she is truthful about the events that took place. It's just too bad no one will ever hear the other side of the story. Our society immediately places blame on the "vicious" animal that is a supposed danger to us.

I never get on here and the only reason I am now is because I heard folks are on here bad mouthing AARF. First let me start by saying, get your facts straight. You know NOTHING about PIT BULLS they are the kindest breed I have had some I have fostered thru AARF and would adopt them in a heartbeat if I did not already have dogs. What makes them mean in stupid people. Secondly don't worry about AARF they are an awesome organization and have everything covered so you can keep your nose out of it. Third you know NOTHING about what AARF is or what they stand for. They are a 501C group with an awesome, caring bunch of folks that volunteer their time that they DON"T have to help last chance animals get a second chance, it is not hoarding it is called having compassion for GOD's creatures that you guys apparantly have no passion for. Maybe you should consider getting a job and the time you spend on here trashing people and organizations you could actually do some good and go help someone or something.. Give unto others as you want done to you. Why don't you try something productive and then God will start blessing you for it...

AARF does do temperment tests as well as home visits before placing dogs in homes.They encourage all family members that will have contact with the new dog, including existing pets, to meet the new adoptee.Temp tests for cats is also done when requested.AARF also provides recommendations to acclimating a new pet to the home.And, if for ANY reason the new pet does not work out, AARF will take it back.In the case of the bite, NO one in AARF is blaming the girl and hope she quickly recovers.The sole purpose of AARF is to save and find homes for the abandoned and unwanted.BCAS also tries to adopt as many unwanted animals brought to them as well.It is not their fault the irresponsibility of the owners.For those that want to take a bad incident to use for your own bashing agenda, you are truly pathetic

AARF people have posted on here several times stating that the poor girl bitten was being abusive to the animal.
In fact no one from AARF was there when it happened so they are clueless as to what happened.
If they continue to post on here that the girl was being abusive to the animal then I think in fact that they will still be sued.
As far of the government volunteers that were there working.
In my opinion AARF could not exhist without all they help that they provided.
Lets see regular AARF staff provide all the care that these volunteers provided.
Maybe instead of bitching all the time AARF folks with have to work for a change.
I for one am fed up with the negitave comments on here reguarding the volunteers there.
Now I understand that they are no longer there and we'll see how well AARF does without them.

Personally if that dog was attacking me I'd beat the hell out of it til it got off me. What this bunch of hippies need to realize ITS AN ANIMAL not a human being. Doing exactly what it was bred to do...attack! Hopefully the dog gets put down cuz it doesn't have any business being around people.

Good gosh people move on, it is terrible someone was bitten, hopefully she is ok which is the reason I checked this site and all it is is bickering. I'm certain there is no possibility of lawsuit-- AND what makes you think she would , not everyone looks for a lawsuit, second most likely her medical bill is covered if she eligible for gov assist. Hopefully she is healing. To blame her without knowing is terrible. I love dogs but something may have caused him to attack that was innocent on her part.

dog can be trained same as a human. it doesnt matter the breed, its the training and attention. i am a pit bull owner. i am responsible with my dog ESP bc humans fear them bc of humans poor judgement prev with fighting pits. ANY animal will bite out of fear and fear to an animal is being trapped with humans all around. be a responsible dog owner and most of all...be a respomsible human!!!

So are you saying that the people who actually work for AARF are getting on here and bashing the girl when they were not even there? If so, wow! If you had no trust in someone, why would you not have an employee there? If they are really doing this, they are making themselves look bad. That is sad. The fact is, if nobody was there, nobody really knows what happened other than there is an injured volunteer. Instead of bashing her, one would think they would want to make sure she was okay. However, this isnt their first rodeo from stories that I have read in the past. I just hope the girl is okay and I feel sorry for the dog because none of us know what he has been through and the smallest thing could have scared him and triggered him. That does not mean that she was being mean to him. Something could have scared him. Very sad. People should be thankful that there are people like her to volunteer. She could have been sitting at home accepting government assistance doing NOTHING like many around here. At least the girl was trying!

The girl that was bitten has been a good friend of mine for many years. She was scared to death of big dogs to begin with...I don't see her provoking him in any manner. They (AARF) knew she was scared and still had her working with them. She is doing as good as she can after many hours of reconstructive surgery and is trying to recover the best she can. She has 2 small children she has to care for also. She still needs all the prayers she can get. Thank you!

If she works at BCAS she does kill dogs, it's not ignorance, it's a fact. And I do have dogs, everyone of which are rescues that I have saved from negligent or abusive situations, paid for their vet bills, and had them fixed. Every single one of them. I take them to Help For Animals and Martin Vet Clinic, if you have any doubts, I can send you copies of their paperwork. All ten of them. This woman you are defending may pretend tocare for dogs, but the only people that actuallygive a damn about them, and will not killthem for "being overcrowded" is AARF. Andyour friends ego tends to get in the way ofher 'saving of lives' that she claims to do smuch of. I'm done dealing with people like you. Igot on here for one reason, to see what wasbeing said about Bruce, the innocent dog thatis going to be euthanized because someonisblaming him for what happened. And Iwould bet my life on the fact that he wasmistreated and instigated into doing what hedid.
Maybe if he spent as much time building relationships with humans as he does dogs his brother wouldn't have stabbed him in the chest :)

I know the girl that was attacked & she did nothing to aggravate or upset the dog. All she did was take the dog outside on a leash & tried to clip his lease to the lead and he went off on her.
