Back in April, Kim shared one of her brood was attacked by one of their dogs. Kash, the middle son, was bitten on the face, under his eye. Kash was rushed to the hospital and ended up having surgery. Kim kept it very hush hush on her social media, not sharing which of their dogs bit the poor lad.
Kim and Kroy recently sat down with “People” and shared the reason behind keeping the dog that bit Kash. Kim reflected on what happened, “It was like a bad dream. Our dog Sinn is heavily, heavily trained. Kash is his favorite. It made absolutely no sense to any of us. This is nothing I ever thought I’d be dealing with in my life”. Kroy gave a brief run-down on the events surrounding the attack. Kroy said everyone was playing outside and he was using the leaf blower (which apparently Sinn HATES). Kroy had his back to the kids and suddenly heard Kash yelling and their dogs barking. He rushed over to his son and saw Kash was bleeding. They rushed Kash to the hospital. While they were gone, Kim and Kroy had Sinn’s trainer come to the house and take him.
Sinn was a rescue the Biermann’s brought into their family 3 years ago. At first, Kroy wanted to get rid of Sinn but later changed his mind. Kim also shared while Kash was in the hospital, he was visited by a service dog. While petting the service dog, Kash was wanting to see Sinn. Kim and Kroy later went back and viewed the attack on their security cameras. What did they find? Kim said, “That was a turning point for me. It was not an attack—he nipped at Kash’s face in an attempt to communicate with Kash. Not that that is an excuse. But he took off running. It wasn’t as if he was attacking. Sinn knew he had done wrong”.
Sinn was kept away for about 8 weeks before he was welcomed back home with open arms. Kash was happy to have his friend back and is not showing any signs of being scared of dogs. Kim shared that if Kash had said he never wanted to see Sinn again or he was scared of Sinn, they would not have brought Sinn back home. Kroy also said that Sinn has a much tighter leash—so to speak—than he did previously. “Sinn had a lot of freedom before. He would sleep in the crate at night, but during the day he would roam around the house or we’d let him outside. Nobody really watched him. Now his crate is locked with a key that only Kim and I have the keys to. He’s supervised all the time when he’s out. And the only time he runs around free is in the fenced-in dog run we built for him in the backyard, which gives him about 400 sq ft of grassed space”.
What do you think of Kim and Kroy’s decision to keep Sinn? Do you think it was a good decision? If not, how should they have handled the situation?
