A dog can be a great pet but always be vigilant especially around children. Its pretty scary when you search for ohio dog bite or ohio dog attack and you get a bunch of news hits involving children. If you or your loved one is the victim of a dog bite or dog attack, please contact the aggressive, compassionate attorneys at Maek & Malek.

I had three golden retrievers growing up as a child: Major, Raider, and Bailey. A Golden retriever is a notoriously family friendly dog however despite that our dogs still had their bad sides. For example Bailey was probably the most friendly, gentle of the three goldens. I tend to think if you can muck about with a dog’s food bowl without that dog growling, you have a disciplined, gentle dog. And Bailey you could take the food bowl, you could push him away from the food bowl, etc, he would not bite you.

But god forbid you prevent Bailey from getting leftover bones from someone’s trash. He would growl, he would snap, he would get mean. Fortunately he never bit me. I actually think he may have bit my older brother Jim at one time. Anyways Bailey would get to the thrown out bones, and unfortunately those bones would act as a super laxative for Bailey. A lot of gross cleans up would ensue.
