Dog goes after deputy

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office recently shared a video of a dog attack on a K9 officer.


I would never put my dog or another dog in a position where either could get hurt. It’s my responsibility. I do understand the officers doing what they had to do, though. I would expect the same thing to happen if one of my dogs somehow got out and were attacking another animal or human. — Renata Anne
