Sad but the dog was doing what its instincts are, protect the owner. Not the dogs fault. These things happen, apparently the dog was chined but broke lose so really doesn't seem to be anyones fault, just a hazard of the job. Hope the Det recovers. Im sure with the history that the dog had it is good that it was put down.
