OK. You name a pitbull "Scarface" and then try to put a silly sweater on him?
Dog mauls owners after they tried to put sweater on him
Three people were injured after police said their dog attacked them when they tried to dress him in a sweater.
According to Tampa Police, a pit bull mix named Scarface bit its owner and two other family members at a home in Tampa on Friday afternoon.
Tampa Police said 52-year-old Brenda Guerrero tried to put a sweater on the dog when he attacked. Her husband, 46-year-old Ismael Guerrero, attempted to pull Scarface off his wife when the dog began attacking him.
Police said the couple's son, 22-year-old Antoine Harris, then got a knife and stabbed the dog in the head and neck to try to stop the attack. The dog then began attacking Harris. All three were able to escape into the house, leaving the dog in the backyard.
"Officers responding said the dog was pretty aggressive," Eddy Durkin with Tampa Police said. "When they tazed the dog the dog was still pulling away and was able to release the prongs from the tazer."
When Animal Control and Tampa Police arrived to the home, the dog was shot with a tranquilizer gun. After the dog got into the house, where there were two children in the back room, officers deployed a bean bag gun and taser to subdue the dog. Eventually, the dog was captured by Animal Control by using a "catch pole."

The guy from the Stray Paw Rescue group who brought our little Cricket back home showed us the scars he had from a pit bull---that he had for 6 years. The dog suddenly attacked him. He had many surgeries on the arm and ran up a $60k medical bill. (He's self-employed, not sure about his insurance).
I know that many pit bulls can be nice, but way back when I was a volunteer adoption counselor at the Humane Society, no dogs with any chow or pit bull in them would be allowed to be adopted to any families with children.
We saw so many pit bulls in the County Animal Control Kennel (dog catchers) when we were trying to find our adopted rat terrier pup after she got out. Ditto pit bull majority at the Humane Society (2 offices).
At the vet, a woman with a cute little pit puppy said she bought it for protection & was going to "train" it. God only knows what her plans were with that pup. Too many idiots or thugs out there using those dogs as a weapon.
