Kim Zolciak Reveals Why They Kept the Dog Who Bit Their 5-Year-Old Son
Kash Biermann, who is just 5 years old, was attacked by a family dog named Sinn back in April.
Though he severely injured their little guy, the family decided to keep their dog.
“It was a like a bad dream. Our dog Sinn is heavily, heavily trained. Kash is his favorite,” the 39-year-old told People.
“It made absolutely no sense to any of us. This is nothing I ever thought I’d be dealing with in my life.”
Sinn and Kash were playing outside when he became aggressive.
“My back was to the dogs and the boys. I hear Kash be loud, and then I hear barking,” Kroy said in a recent episode of Don’t Be Tardy.
“And then I hear Kash screaming, he’s crying very loud. At that point I think he’s scared, but then I realize Sinn bit Kash.”
He continued, “He’s dripping blood everywhere on his shirt. He pulls his hands down and there’s multiple lacerations, I can’t see his eye. I knew it was a very dire emergency.”
Needless to say, it was a horrible experience for the father of six.
“There are no words to describe something like this,” the 32-year-old shared.
“I just pray that any parent out there does not have to go through anything traumatic like it. It’s just a horrible feeling to have to go through.”
And, though Kroy was absolutely ready to send Sinn away, they decided to keep him for Kash.
“I love my dog, and nothing like this had ever happened to me before,” Kroy continued.
“But it’s my son. I don’t love anything more than my flesh and blood. I thought, ‘I don’t want to see the dog — he doesn’t get a second chance.’”
Kroy shared, “I genuinely felt a deep rage for what Sinn had done to my son, but Kash loves him. We didn’t want him to live a life with a phobia of dogs. We wanted him to understand it wasn’t his fault.”
The parents also knew they wanted to keep Sinn once they realized their son was not attacked, just bitten.
“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,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star said.
“If Kash ever looked at me and said that he didn’t want to be around Sinn or showed any hesitation, then he wouldn’t be here,” Kim emphasized.
“We love Sinn, he’s part of our family, but our children will always come first without a doubt.”
