The Kentucky man whose baby was taken from its crib by a family pet says the infant remains in critical condition at the University of Kentucky Hospital with a cracked skull and ribs, and a collapsed lung.
And Michael Smith told the Lexington Herald-Leader, here, that the dog, Dakota, won’t be coming home.
This story also refers to the dog as a “Native American Indian dog,” a breed whose unlikely name raised my eyebrows when I first read this story. (See previous post here.)
Smith says the family has another one of the dogs, and that both came from a Michigan breeder, who told the Smiths the dogs’ grandparents were “90 percent wolf.”
While I still have extreme doubts about the breed’s name, any animal that really is mostly wolf has no place in someone’s home. (Bracing now for the criticism that no doubt will be thrown this way as a result of that statement.)
In the meantime, we all continue to hope for the baby’s speedy recovery.
