The parents of that child acted aggressively and ignorantly. Shame on them for kicking an animal. Pe ...

We had noted that the mother knows nothing about dogs. All she saw was a big animal approaching her child. It's absolutely correct to use violence to protect the child from a big animal which you have no idea it's gentle or mad.

What are you implying? You are a MOTHER now??? Have you been retrofitted, seksually reorientated or something???

If you have, I ask you to keep some rationality and abstain from blindly kicking other beings. You set a bad example for your child and for others. That "big animal" could be Mao's lapdog frolicking around in search of people to play with.

Chinese dog owners are utterly irresponsible, they don't control their dogs in public, are a menace to the general public, young and old, they don't clean up their dog poo, they let their dogs bark incessantly in apartments, a bloody nuisance to neighbors, they keep huge dogs in apartments, contravening housing rules which permit only small dogs.  
And what's worse, and increasingly so, they take their dogs into shopping malls and even supermarkets, contravening health laws which clearly forbid that!
The problem is not helped by the Chinese public who don't speak up until the dog bites someone, by then of course it is too late, got to go hospital for treatment and for that very important anti rabies jab!
Yes, Chinese dog owners badly need education on responsible dog ownership, and the relevant authorities must do their part to enforce the law. Supermarket and shopping mall managements fail miserably in enforcing the 'NO Dogs' rule; they don't stop customers taking their dogs in, until some public spirited customers complain, and those are mostly foreigners, not locals, who couldn't care less!

Agreed, the mother's instinct is to protect her child from a huge dog; she cant be expected to make a quick assessment whether that dog is going to bite her child or not!  The blame falls squarely on the irresponsible dog owner for not controlling her dog!

Wah, and this litany from this forum's self-declared "freund of China's"... Do you really think you are a positive persona???

First of all, you made a horribly sweeping claim about all Chinese pet owners. I can safely say your statement is WRONG, offensive to MILLIONS of Chinese people. That is a fact, hombre!

Secondly, you are not helping the people who have an unfriendly encounter with a dog. You are only depiciting dogs as enemies of humanity. That plays right into the hands of uncaring dog haters.

The dog in question here belongs to a breed that is wellknown for being adapted to people, friendly, a good companion and a protector for children.

There are, of course, people who raise dogs in an irresponsible way. I doubt the Chinese are the only ones with such problematic fellows among them. People who raise a dog because of its status, its ferocity, or its breed are problematic people. There are people who have a dog because it is an "investment". That is a wrong reason toown a dog. There are others who have a dog to distinguish themselves from the rest of their neighbourhood. That too is not an ideal reason. But there are many people - international and Chinese - who have a dogbecause they bond with them and their dogs bond with them. Why must you put these people in the same basket as those who have dogs for illegitimate reasons?

No, this mother set a bad example to her child of attacking a harmless creature that showed its playfulness. It's akin to a racist response to a humanbeing. She can certainly determine whhether the dog was playing or attacking.

There are more such lousy mothers who are overprotective because that is their only way of showing their attention to their child. These women don't play with their child themselves and may give more attention to a game on their mobile phone than to their child. In public they often let their child get lost and other people are expectedf to protect their child and to bring him or her back when he or she has strayed away.
