She got Oz, a Strattfordshire Bull Terrier, one of the breeds known as a Pit Bull. Yes, one of those.
Although he was quite fierce looking, he was a total pussycat toward her three daughters, ages 11, 7, and 4. So much of a pussycat that not long after assuming his guard dog role, the Pit Bull was attacked and injured by the family cat.
Then a short time later their home was burglarized again. This time the thieves stole Oz, their guard dog.
Oz was described as “scary looking, short, plump and with ginger markings on his back.”
Oh yes, and he had cat scratch marks on his chest.
Now what is it we have always heard about Pit Bulls?
