MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A child in Goulds was mauled to death by at least one dog Wednesday morning.

Child found dead from apparent dog attack in SW Miami-Dade





Animal Services have removed the dogs from the scene. They later confirmed there were three adult dogs and three puppies at the home at the time of the attack. However, it remains unknown how many or which dog attacked the boy. “A total of six dogs were removed from the scene. Three adults, which appear to be American Bulldog and Labrador Retriever mixes and one pit bull,” said a spokesperson Kathleen Labrador of Animal Services. “The puppies appear to be terrier mixes. They are too young to evaluate, they are under 6 months of age. We’re certainly hopeful that through DNA evidence and other evidence we’re able to gather, that we will be able to confirm which dogs were involved in the attack.”

American Pit Bull Terrier

The American Pit Bull Terrier is, like all the ‘bully’ breeds, one of this group of descendants of the British ‘bull and terrier’ type fighting bulldogs. Once imported into the United States, it was bred up to be bigger again, and again used in baiting animals and in dogfighting. The American Kennel Club (founded 1884) was unwilling to register these fighting dogs, so in 1898 the United Kennel Club was founded specifically to register working pit-fighting dogs and to promote dogfighting. In order to be registered, a dog had to first win three pit fights7,8,9. The American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT) became a ‘breed’. As dogfighting declined in popularity in the 1930s and 1940s, Colby (the most famous and prolific breeder of these dogs) began to search for a new market and began promoting the APBT as family pets10,11. This despite the fact that his breeding lines included child killers12.

American Bulldog

The term Bulldog is most commonly referring to the English Bulldog, although there are variations in the breed, such as the American Bulldog, Olde English Bulldogge, and the French Bulldog. The original Bulldog was used in the blood sport of bull and bear baiting, until those were outlawed in 1835. In New York in the mid 17th century, the Governor brought in Bulldogs to round up wild bulls. The English and French Bulldogs (but not the other variants) were eventually crossed with a pug, and no longer have the attributes of bull baiters. The Olde English Bulldogge is a recreation of the original bull-baiting, pit-fighting bulldog of Elizabethan days and is considered one of the Pit Bull breeds. The American Bulldog is a mix of these original fighting bulldogs and a mastiff type, and is also considered a Pit Bull breed. See Section Two for information about these two Bulldog types.
