Two Florida toddlers have been killed in the past 9 days, both by "family dogs." On December 13, Dallas Walters (20 months of age) was killed by his aunt's pet Rottweiler, while on December 22, Liam Perk (2 years old) was killed by his parents' pet Wemaraner. Both fatalities happened inside a residence, and both were in Florida.
One of the myths about dog attacks is that they involve stray dogs. In truth, 75% of the time the dog belongs to a family member, friend or neighbor.
