Dak Prescott reached an agreement with the city of Frisco, Texas, to remove his dog from the city limits, Newy Scruggs of DFW’s NBC5 reports.

The agreement cancels a dangerous dog hearing for the animal, an American Staffordshire terrier named Icon.

Two of the quarterback’s dogs escaped through an unsecured door Feb. 25, and Icon bit a neighbor. The woman lost part of her right ring finger and was hospitalized for four days.

Animal Services officers in Frisco, Texas, previously issued two warnings to Prescott after his dogs got loose.

  1. A decent human being would have euthanized those vicious dogs ….. Prescott apparently cares more about his vicious dogs than he does his neighbors

  2. Yeah this is normal….for those who don’t think about others or anything very seriously…
    He should be obliged to go to training school and show proof to a judge that he learned something !!!

  3. Two warnings and he leaves the gate open?
    Dog bites off a ladies finger?
    Wow. Wish I was that lady’s attorney.
    Easiest payday ever.

  4. i cant stand idiot owners like this, the fact that its this fool and he plays for this team, is just the icing on the cake

  5. This doesn’t address any of the issues, it just moves the problem to another city. What is this, the Catholic Church?

  6. Let’s see if I got this right. Dak’s dogs somehow got out and running loose. The neighbor sees the dogs fighting “through her fence” and she intervenes and one of Dak’s dogs bit her finger, resulting in the loss of a finger tip. from the look of the neighbor’s and Dak’s yard both had top notched fencing around both houses. She must of put her hand around her dogs neck to pull it back to the safety of the interior yard. Dogs when their in “beast mode” is not uncommon to turn their aggression on the nearest “target” Kind dumb to intervene in two dogs fighting. And how did Dak’s dogs get loose? Did Dak or an “housesitter” forget to secure the dog’s pen? Lotsa of questions. For a PR position Dak should make good on the neighbor’s expenses and invest in a better locking system for his dogs. Both should shoulder the blame for the incident.

    Nope a decent human being would be a more responsible dog owner. Staffordshire Terriers are far from a violent dog. As has been pointed out, there are no bad dogs, just bad dog owners. There are bad human beings. Like those that just brand a dog as vicious without knowing anything about the dog or the situation.

  8. Nice the way you use the AKC handle instead of the more recognized name, pit bull. And they are very dangerous and it’s dammed near impossible to overwrite the firmware. A good owner can minimize the chance for things like this but the damage potential is serious. Hold these owners to a higher standard instead of mitigating their irresponsible behavior.

  9. >>Animal Services officers in Frisco, Texas, previously issued two warnings to Prescott after his dogs got loose

    After 2 previous warnings, the owner should be held responsible for their dog.
    This should be treated as if Dak himself attacked someone. You want to own dogs, then take responsibility.
