Scottish Deerhound

The Scottish Deerhound is an extremely old bred that traditionally excelled at pursing and killing deer.

By Cesar Millan A month ago today in Little Rock, California (a small town located forty miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles), a woman named Pamela Devitt was out for a jog when she was attacked and killed by a pack of four dogs.
