I manage a claim department for a major US carrier. I have seen tragic dog mauling cases you wouldn’t believe. Horrific scaring to the face, the body, you name it. One case involved a dog literally biting the nose off of a 3 year old blonde haired blue eyed girl after hopping the fence from the neighbors yard. Dogs are animals and thus, extremely unpredictable. I would never have my little girl or boy around a 260 pound animal.
