demonpuppy tells us more.
Hey you guys, the OP here! I just wanted to clear some things up. My puppy is very sweet. She has never pulled anyone else while on the leash. She's actually one of the most timid dogs I've ever owned and yes, I have owned dogs before and I know the breed. But because she is a puppy anomaly and doesn't pull, I thought it would be ok for my niece to walk her as I walked next to them. Also, this took place in my fenced off back yard. I do however have a stone terrace, which is where my niece got pulled over on. I know that my niece getting hurt is probably my fault and I've now learned that my puppy goes crazy when there are squirrels in sight. I've apologized to my sister-in-law. My niece is fine, she was back up and playing within minutes, but her mother wont let her near my puppy and I got a talking to. So, hope that clears some things up for you guys.

way to berate 3 for no reason. some people, believe it or not, don't like animals. sounds like you know from experience that abused animals don't like that person. relax, get the stick out of our ass, (and play fetch) and quit going on an "ohmygod I love animals so I'm so much better than you so I'm going to rage at you" rant at someone you don't know because they stated their opinion and for heaven's sake, it's different than yours. it makes you look like an arrogant, uptight, close minded, petty, sorry excuse for a decent human being.
I clicked both "I agree, your life is f***ed" and "you deserved that one". While you didn't know its strength, you should *not* have let your niece handle it.
I said FYL because it was a just a puppy, but next time, YDI for not realizing that a dog bred for pulling a sled across Canada would be able to pull around a 40-pound child. Oh, and the kid's mother is a bitch. The child learned a valuable lesson about puppy strength and wasn't seriously injured.
