OMG.... that is one reason I don't watch that channel very often... it is too emotionally wrenching! Oh, I do believe they should have at least tried to have a trainer work with the dog... yep, Kallie, also, definitely would bark and lunge at anyone who walked by us.. but she would never bite... she has never even snapped at Catcher.... who deserves to be snapped at occasionally.
I don't THINK Brinkley would actually nip anyone like that...but I wouldn't swear on it! He sounds REALLY awful sometimes. The only time he has actually nipped at someone besides my own children was when I took him to a little league game and this little girl kept WANTING to pet him...she would get close and then pull away...well, after awhile, he got annoyed~or thought she was teasing/playing and he snarled and tried to nip! Scared me to death...even though she deserved it!
Anyway, I think Brink would act like that other dog just to try and GET to the people and check them out...not necessarily to be mean
