In January 1995, a 2-year-old boy in South Dakota wandered into a neighbor’s yard, where he was attacked and killed by two chained wolf-German shepherd hybrids. In September 1995, a 3-week-old girl in Pennsylvania was killed in her crib by the family Chow Chow while her parents slept in the next room. In March 1996, an 86-year-old woman in Tennessee went outside of her home to check the weather and was fatally mauled by two Rottweilers owned by a neighbor; the dogs had attacked and injured the woman one month before the fatal attack. Unfortunately, the above instances are far from rare: man and woman’s best friend will bite 4.7 million Americans this year, 60 percent of whom are children. As many as 800,000 people require medical attention for dog bites annually. From 1979 through 1994, attacks by dogs resulted in 279 human deaths in the United States. Such attacks have prompted widespread review of existing local and state dangerous-dog laws, but much is still needed to be done. Now, dog owner, former dog boarder, and new author, Frank Newkirk, exposes all — and offers step-by-step advice in how to protect yourself from dog attacks in his new book — Be AWARE of the Dog: Protecting Yourself from a Fatal Dog Attack.
