Why isn't the owner to blame? A dog's actions mirror how it's been treated. If you treat your dog well, your dog will treat you and those around you well. I had a dog for 18 years, I treat it well. It snapped at me once and snapped at a postman, once, in 18 years.

The Justice System IS a soft touch. If they aren't willing to fine neglectful animal owners, then they should be willing to give out life bans on keeping animals. At the end of the day, it's the animals that suffer because the owner was too thick to raise the animal accordingly.
