For the record, there are three Akita dogs at the end of Beechtree that have been responsible for attacking at least four family pets in the neighborhood in the past few years -- two dogs for which the owner of the Akitas assumed responsibility to pay for vet bills but did not report to the police. But there is a record and identification of the dog who did the mauling of all four.
Very recently, a very good family friend in the View Place neighborhood informed me that her family pet dog was mauled by an Akita. They showed me the picture and I recognized it as one of dogs residing at the end of Beechtree in the cul de sac. So why haven't the police done anything based on my identification?
Akitas define their territory by their "kill sights"and not by their owner's property lines or invisible fence. Every mauling that occurs expands the "territory." I also read that Akitas are known to intimidate and attack small children. There is a previous Akita owner in the neighborhood who informed me recently why they had to get rid of their dog after it jumped up on the kitchen table and grabbed food from the children after spending thousands of dollars on reputable training and obedience school. This was after being assured by other Akita owners that the dogs can be trained to be around children.
Please ask this question to the police. Ask them why after a dog is identified after mauling a family pet why neighbors are not notified of a potential danger? Are they waiting for a young child to get to hurt before they can respond?
