Innocent and Adorable Pit Bull Survives Cunning Attempt to Choke it With a Labradoodle’s Head

Those adorable Pit Bulls. Maine news from The Rumford MeteorA woman who says she was injured when a pit bull attacked her Labradoodle in South Freeport on Sunday afternoon is circulating an online petition to ban the pit bull from the neighborhood. Kristen Bailey said she and her 14-year-old son, Robbie, were walking their dog late Sunday afternoon. Bailey said she suffered a concussion when she hit her head on the pavement near the town wharf as she tried to rescue her dog from the pit bull, which had rushed across a lawn toward them. A neighbor who raced onto the scene to help probably saved her dog’s life, Bailey said. “I got into the fray and the pit bull had my dog by the neck,” said Bailey, who lives on Park Street. “I was pulling on the bad dog’s ear to get him to let go, and the owner was picking up the back end of his dog. My son was pushed out of the way by a neighbor. Another neighbor, a woman, jumped on the (pitbull) and pried his jaws open and I got away. Then my head hit the pavement.” (read more at Keep Me Current)

If You Have Plenty of Spare Toddlers Hanging Around, Teddy the Pit Bull Would Make a Wonderful Pet

biddeford pit bullMeet Teddy, a 2-year-old Labrador/pit bull mix. As you might expect from a mix of those two breeds, Teddy is very energetic and goofy. He’s a happy-go-lucky guy who would benefit from an obedience class like the ones offered at Animal Welfare Society with discounted rates for adoptees. He does tend to jump on people to say hello or when he gets excited. Teddy loves getting lots of playtime with his people and with any type of toy. He’s not picky, so long as he can chase it, chomp on it or flail it about, he’ll enjoy playing with it. (read more at the Biddeford-Saco-OOB Courier)

Scarborough Has A “Canine Education And Enforcement Committee.” The Town Is Mostly Paved And Nearly Everyone Poops Indoors, Too

Committee meeting. Maine news from the Rumford MeteorSCARBOROUGH — As the first summer with new leash laws and a beach monitoring program comes to a close, the Canine Education and Enforcement Committee is prepared to make recommendations for improving the welfare of dogs and endangered birds on town beaches. Over the course of five meetings this summer, the seven-member ad-hoc committee reviewed tag programs for dogs, researched the feasibility of dog parks in town, created signs and education materials, and oversaw the new piping plover beach monitoring program. The panel also worked to ease a transition to the new leash laws for dogs on beaches, which have divided dog owners and beach-goers for several months. But tensions on the beach continue. “Scarborough is not going to earn their dog-friendly badge,” committee member Cheryl Larou said. The town began changing its animal control ordinance after an incident last summer, when an off-leash dog killed an endangered piping plover and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service served the town with a suggested $12,000 fine. In response, councilors enacted a ban on off-leash dogs that was struck down by a nearly 3-1 margin in a December referendum. Councilors then formed an ad-hoc committee to craft a new animal control ordinance to satisfy dog owners and better protect the endangered birds on town beaches. (read more at The Forecaster)
