Dog Attacks In The News

Daxton’s Friends for Canine Education and Awareness believes it is important to stay informed on current affairs and issues relating to animal welfare and public safety. The following news links will feature information that may play a role in our mission. Daxton’s Friends believes that the media does an accurate job in reporting canine related incidents involving any breed of canine and does not find there is substantial evidence that only certain breeds are reported. However, many canine related incidents involving attacks on other canines do not make media news. If you have been involved in a canine attack, find a canine related incident that you think we should share, or just have a good dog story to tell, please e-mail us at DaxtonsFriends@gmail.com. *Abusive and/or deceitful emails are subject to being published in full.*
