DATELINE PETPOSITIVE THERAPY CENTRE, PETALING JAYA:
The Malaysian Animal-Assisted Therapy for the Disabled and Elderly Association or PETPOSITIVE is working hard to rescue at least three Rottweilers from being destroyed.
The canines - one male and two females - were involved in at least three dog-biting incidents recently in a residential area that led to the death of at least two dogs belonging to separate pet owners.
A third canine belonging to another pet owner sustained an injury to its leg. All of the incidents happened separately.
The victims were attacked by the male Rottweiler when the animal ran out of the house. The owner claims that the accidents all happened by mistake.
In our investigations we discovered that what we strongly believe about dog biting situations was true - that the dogs themselves become a victim in such situations.
The Rottweiler in concern was clearly a victim in each of the dog attacks.
The animals were looked after by an owner who was unfamiliar with the breed's characteristics as well as information on basic care of dogs.
We managed to convince the owner to give up at least two of his Rotties to good caregivers and keep only one pet.
Meanwhile, Petpositive will be sending one of our pet care experts to visit the owner to give him helpful tips on dog care.
