This is just terrible.
Pets, especially dogs are beloved members of our families. It’s no surprise that people want to bring their dogs with them when they go out to eat, to public parks, bars, sporting events, etc. Some of these establishments welcome our furry four-legged friends with open arms, while others, not so much.
For some places, it makes sense, such as grocery stores, places where food is prepared, and sterile environments. One exception to this rule is of course service dogs. There are obviously rules around service dogs and for good reason. People who lie or circumvent those rules just to bring their dog along with them are taking a very big risk.
It was instantaneous!
This family was out to eat at a local restaurant when a couple who had their “service dog” with them walked by. The dog lunged forward and bit their toddler on the face. The couple then ran off and got in a vehicle and fled the scene, despite the young girl’s father yelling at them.
“It was instantaneous,” said Ronin’s mother. “There was a massive pitbull (with) a service vest and he just lashed out at her.”
