The recent mauling to death of five-year-old Ellie Lawrenson by her uncle's pit bull terrier has put dangerous dogs back in the headlines. Phil Kemp reports on the alarming rise in the number of fighting dogs, which were supposedly outlawed 15 years ago in an amendment to the Dangerous
Dogs Act. Kemp meets the young dog owners who are using the canine creatures as fashion accessories, badges of machismo and/or potential weapons.
