But the cynic in me is thinking in 12 years there will be a news story that begins... Remember that heart warming 2016 video of a little boy hugging a dog, well that little boy is 20 now and he has just been arrested for robbery/rape/homicide...
Or the dog died of old age and the people got a new dog - a pit bull, which ate forty schoolchildren and the bus they were on.

This post makes me think of my relatives in Holland seeing that you are in Europe . There if you didn't put your animal in front of your kids , marriage , mom dying of terminal cancer , then you suck. I'd never seen anything like it before or since as a culture .
The dog is just fine . My Dutch cousin back in Holland and her sweet husband divorced over a similar argument she basically moved the animals in the bedroom and he could sleep on the couch - cats , dogs , lizards everything . Terrible, had been together years , don't know what caused her to trip out like that . He is happy now and she is bitter . Right now my bed is loaded with my husband and 3 Siamese .

Comments like yours are exactly why people don't see it as a heartwarming story. I have pit mixes and have to defend them daily from ignorant people who don't know the breed or have experience with them but believe everything the media has to offer.

The story and video were cute - but even 50 years ago I was taught to never go near a strange dog and it was hard for me because I love animals.

Any dog will bite:

5-year-old bitten by Labrador recovering, says her pit bull saved her from being seriously injured - wptv.com

Black Lab Attacks Tucson Boy and His Pit Bull

Boy, 3, left with horrific facial injuries as Labrador savages him at Poole Harbour | Daily Mail Online

Owner: Pit bull injured, 3 people attack by black lab | KIMT 3

So much for pit bulls being the only dogs that attack - there are pages and pages of these when you google. And notice how the pit bull defended the family member in a couple of these.

This story literally took my breath away. What a precious child and precious dog.


Yes, it has a couple of odd bits. For example, why did the dog owners leave their garage door open? Yes, I'm skeptical. But it's still a great story!

Know lots of people who leave their dogs in open garages. Most persons (at least those with any sense) aren't going to enter a garage with a dog, especially any of the mid size to larger breeds.


The kid still grieves for his pet is all. Hope the family "decides" to get him another soon.

The kid breaking and entering into private property (he's a little boy, he doesn't know any better) and the dog attacks the boy and kills him. Now the owners get sued and the dog gets put down....because the parents can't keep track of their kids.
Easy - the kid was not dog nave. He had a dog of his own. People who are not dog nave can usually tell a friendly dog from a killer dog. People who are dog nave will walk out into 6 lanes of traffic to avoid a Snoopy or Odie dog coming down the sidewalk.
