I was walking my Yellow Lab in Woodstream and we came across a young man with black hair (name he told me was Devin) with a black (or gray) and white pit bull dog, about 1 year old. My dog was sniffing the ground and the pit bull jumped on my dogs back and bit him. The pit bull would not let go, my dog was screaming and the owner (Devin) was hitting his dog, I was hitting his dog, he finely pulled the attacking dog off mine (30 or 45 seconds direct unprovoked attack). This is the second time in Kingwood I have seen pit bulls attack other dogs, the last attack was some years ago and the pit bull broke through 2 fences to attack my neighbors dog, my neighbors dog was hospitalized for several weeks. Why does someone need a dog like that in Kingwood? For all you pit bull love fest types, just contact your insurance company and see what they say about those dogs, they have a very bad track record; loving one minute and the next in attack mode.

I hope your dog is ok and that Devin will pay your vet bills from the bite.

The guy gave me his address, who knows if it is correct. But tomorrow when Houston Animal Control opens up I am filing a complaint. The Houston police would not do anything because it was dog on dog. I do have pictures of the attacking dog an owner, nice to have cell phones with cameras. 

voice of reason --- 5 years ago -

and away we go!

i am so sorry to hear of your experience. that breed has been destroyed by man and now needs to be destroyed. sad but true. they are bred killers.

ignore the pit apologists. they're all 'good' dogs until they turn.

Anyone named Devin sounds like a pit bull owner. 

Jpgirl --- 5 years ago -

Could you PM me a pic? I was onthe greenbelt in Greentree when a pitbull mix ( owners description not mine) slipped his collar and charged at me and my 2 dogs. I kept my head and made sure my 2 were always facing him. He circled but couldn't find a way to attack- my 2 were barking and growling protecting me and themselves. The dog gave up and finally the lady retrieved him. No bloodshed thank goodness. The description sounds the same- but Greentree and Woodstream are a fairly good distance and most people don't walk their dogs that far. I do any where from 2-5 miles- I'm in Sand Creek and even on our walks we've not made it into Woodstream. Probably not the same dog but perhaps...
Hope your dog feels better soon . And next time just be careful about sticking your hands in to stop a fight- I learned that lesson the hard way and ended up with a nasty infection

I have a photo, but I will save that for Houston Animal Control. Also, the owner was very sorry about his pit bull. He was a stand up guy, so lets all keep from denigrating the owner. The dog is a totally different situation, and in my opinion should not be in Kingwood. just think if a child was playing in the front yard and the pit bull attacked the child. That has happened. My dog has a good size hole in his skin, but he should heal up, or so I hope. Labs have lots of thick loose skin and fur for swimming in that cold water to get ducks.

Too many pit bulls running around Kingwood now. Some of the rescues are adopting out pit bulls and pit mixes to people in KW without a clue of the actual history of these dogs. They tend to escape normal fencing. Genetically engineered for generations to have extremely high prey drive and aggression. Not a dog for suburbia. Only a matter of time before a child or adult is either horribly maimed or killed. They are illegal in many states now; cannot sell or adopt them out.

The numbers don't lie. Check out this website, it'll make you gasp.

Fatal pit bull attacks 

gunsnroses --- 5 years ago -

I tried to post this story on Kingwood.com but they didn't post it,. .?? Go to www.fatalpitbullattacks.com. Statistics don't lie. 

FANCY PANTS --- 5 years ago -

I'm so sorry this happened to you and your sweet lab. Good thing you were able to get the pit off your dog. Everyone should have some kind of protection when they are out walking, even here in Kingwood. I wonder if a stun gun would make a pit bull stop attacking. Does anyone know? 

kingwood resident --- 5 years ago -

Pit bi;;s are very aggresive animals. The way they were originally bred caused them to be this way and no one can change them. We need to have a law passed that will make it illegal to have a pit bull in this county. One of my relatives almost became a victim of two pit bulls. A police officer told me that many police officers have been viciously mauled by pit bulls. He cannot stand them. Why anyone in Kingwood would want one is beyond me. The yards are not big enough. If they want to own a pit bull move out to the country where they can have a lot of land to run around.

At least he did it with grace.

Pic or it didn't happen.

BS! There is no reason for them to come on here and say it happened if it did not. I can see them not wanting to put the pic of someone and their dog on this message board. If they did they could get in trouble. 

ATXmom --- 5 years ago -

Pit bulls were originally bred to be nanny dogs for babies and small children in Europe, more specifically in the UK. It is the HUMAN breed that has changed that....has nothing to do with original origin. Responsibility lies with the owner. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

^^that^^ also, you're brand new- how would you know there are pit lovers on KU? I call BS too. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

troll alert!

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

I noticed! strange, huh- (NOT) 

living large --- 5 years ago -

You are correct. I went through the trouble to create an account so I could let folks in Kingwood know what happened. I have never had a need to use this site, if it matters I have lived in KW for 10+ years.
PS. Pit Bull bogs are forbidden in the UK because of the danger they pose to other dogs and people, or that is what one of my friends has told me who is from the UK. 

living large --- 5 years ago -

PS. Animal Control has been contacted and a complaint filed, seems the address the pit bull owner gave me was good. Perhaps the system can work.

i agree that human's genetically modifying the breed has effed it up. no doubt about that. that said, we need to call it a day with this breed and put an end to the monsters that man has created.

yes the owners are responsible for what their 'pets' do but that doesn't solve anything now does it? more aggressive steps need to be taken to erradicate these killers. such a shame that the breed has been bastardized in this fashion.

meaningless. i can't believe a.t.d. backs up this b.s. no wonder new posters go away quickly. gee wiz.

someone had an attack in this community so they came on a community message board to notify and discuss. b.f.d. not every newbie is a troll. you all are nothing short of rude all day, every day to every one who doesn't suit your agenda.

you do have a pit or a pit mix if i recall, do you not, a.t.d.?

About a month ago, we were walking our 4 dogs. 3 were small and I was behind my husband who was walking the big dog. Because I know dogs can pull out of their collars, I have a great Martindell leash that I bought at Pets Ranch. In this case, a gal was walking her 2 dogs and her yellow lab backed out of his/her collar, ran across and started biting and fighting our mixed breed shepherd who was bigger than that dog. My dog had to fight back to protect herself. My husband ended up on the ground as he tripped during the fight. My dog had a hole in her gut. This was a yellow lab that attacked. Not a pitbull. I left quickly in fear the dog would attack my small dogs.

I would not bother this man with the pitbull. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

what? an attack by a lab??? poor vor- all that vitriol and no pit to blame!!

Really? Do you seriously doubt that MORE attacks are perpetrated by Pits than any other type of dog or even all other dog breeds combined? Why is it almost always pits we hear about? Is it a conspiracy? Why is the media lying about pits? Or is it because they attack more or because their attacks kill more often than any other breed?

Either way, the breed needs to be removed from society as too many of them are not fit for human companionship.

Remember, every one of those people who's pit chewed them, their kids, someone else or another pet up, used to think their dog would never do that too! The risk is simply too high. 

Veronica --- 5 years ago -

I just wouldn't bother an upstanding citizen that loves his pitbull. Dogs are dogs. Even though my husband hurt his leg, his tee shirt destroyed, and my dog had a hole in her gut, the most I'd ask of this lady is vet cost. Dogs are dogs. My dog that was attacked is very territorial in her home. She's good with 75% of other dogs, but attacked a greyhound I found and brought home until I found the owner. Don't know why dogs can suddenly not like other dogs. Point is, this guy loves his pitbull as much as you love your dog. Dog didn't bite you. I had another instance once when a Great Dane mix got off his leash and ran to bite my golden retriever. I grabbed his leash, put my dog on a sit stay and walked that dog home with the little girl who couldn't hold onto him begged me to not press charges. 

Veronica --- 5 years ago -

Also. How did the pitbull get close to your yellow lab?

Everyone needs to walk the greenbelts with a bat to protect from these sicko hounds. The breed all need to be euthanized.

I didn't notice where VOR stated that only pits attack. We all know that's not true but I guess you're not a fan of logical statistics Draggy.

RIGHT ON, WATCHAMA, RIGHT ON! We agree on something! 

living large --- 5 years ago -

All, the "bla bla" about dog breads could easily be settled by talking to your insurance company and see what dogs have what "perineum" for liability. Insurance companies are all about numbers that are directly related to risk and likely hood. No need to debate with morons, the numbers don't lie (3ed party insurance numbers, not related to this web debate). Perhaps we could start a "No Pit Bull" Houston amendment vote. It would make the city safer for all, and isn't that what we all want?

I'm for that! 

Judas --- 5 years ago -

Count me in. 

Veronica --- 5 years ago -

Was the pitbull off leash? How did he get to your dog? Did you walk your dog close to him? Was your dog off leash?

I think complaining to AC won't service you in any way. I pray you have a city license. Also BARC adopts out pitbulls. Also, most that look like pit mixes with a DNA search shows no pit. 

FANCY PANTS --- 5 years ago -

Don't know why dogs can suddenly not like other dogs. Point is, this guy loves his pitbull as much as you love your dog. Dog didn't bite you.

So what if he loves his dog. His dog is a bad dog. It does not matter that the dog only bit another dog. The pit bull was in the wrong.

Also. How did the pitbull get close to your yellow lab??

Who was the attacker? Oh, it was the pit bull not the lab. The guy apparently did not have control over his dog. The dog needs to be reported to make sure it does not happen again. If the dog does not have a record and it happens again then the owner of the lab is at fault for not reporting the incident.

living large, I wonder~ Does this pit bull already have a record? 

FANCY PANTS --- 5 years ago -

I pray you have a city license.

What about the pit bull owner? I wonder if they have a city licence. That's the one who needs to worry about a city licence. 

Veronica --- 5 years ago -

The guy has a right to walk his dog on leash. Secure.

Why was the yellow lab close to him to begin with?
