"I petted him, and then all of a sudden … he started to bare his teeth and growled ferociously, and then before I knew it he was leaping up toward my jugular," said Wiebe.

Dog meat trade facts: In South Korea, dogs are killed by electrocution; elsewhere, they are usually bludgeoned, hanged or more rarely, boiled alive. Dogs and cats crammed onto trucks endure dehydration, starvation, exposure to extreme cold and heat, broken limbs, shock and disease.
"The rescue indicated the dog was on a home trial at the time of the incident and still owned by their agency," a city spokesperson said.
Wiebe says the adoption was formalized and a cheque was given to the rescue for the dog.
Officials from animal services have contacted the victim and continue to investigate, the city said. It's unclear if there will be a hearing to decide the dog's fate.
'Be very, very aware'
Wiebe says she wants the dog to be destroyed to ensure it can't attack anyone again. She says she wishes she'd done more research about the breed, and about the animal's history.
"I think that there are some traumas that dogs experience that they will not be able to get over and be healthy," she said.
She hopes other families who are considering adopting dogs saved from the meat trade will be cautious.
"Other families need to be made aware that if they have a generous heart and want to reach out to rescue dogs, be very, very aware of where the dogs are coming from," Wiebe said.
She says it will take her and her family some time to recover after what happened, and says it will be a while before she can even consider adopting another dog.
"I think beyond the physical, I think it's the psychological scarring that we'll have to deal with — my family as well as myself."
