    possible religion which actually might have some influence on his decision....

    Muhammad made strange and harsh statements about dogs and these edicts affect dogs in a tragic way. His teachings may have come from cultural bias, Pagan concepts, or his own imagination, but wherever they came from they led to the cruel treatment of dogs.

    None of the statements regarding dogs are found in the Quran but they abound in the various collections of traditions (hadith). These traditions are a primary foundation of Islamic theology and are the basis of many Islamic laws. They render dogs as "impure" and worse. Per Muhammad’s orders most dogs were to be killed and all dogs of a specific color (black) had to be killed.

    not sure about this site for ideology or truthiness but I have long known that devout Muslims and Dogs do not mix well.....They are unclean or "Haaram" (ritually unclean) and as such many Islamic people have never been around dogs, don't know how to react to their common posturing and could easily interpret it as threatening....

    That doesn't condone the use of force against a service dog that wouldn't normally bite but it might explain his fear and use of force to "protect" himself from what in his mind might be a unclean ravening beast........
