    Default Another dog attack!

    Not Belle this time thankfully...but it happened to my in-laws elderly mini schnauzer. They travel the country in a big motorhome and they happen to be in our town visiting for a month. My mother-in-law called me this morning in a panic. While my father-in-law was out walking their two mini schnauzers, a large boxer mix busted through the fenced in dog area at the campground and attacked their male. My FIL had to kick the other dog and basically step on his head to get him to let go. He was extremely shaken up and obviously very angry. The other dog's owner had forgotten to latch the gate and let their dog off leash. He is obviously very dog aggressive so really has no business being in an RV park. They filed a complaint with the owner of the park and with animal control. The RV park has offered to pay for all vet expenses and our animal control issued the man several citations. Thankfully their schnauzer will be okay but he did have a pretty deep puncture wound on his neck and will be on antibiotics for a few days. He's always been a shy timid dog so I'm sure this won't help. What the heck is with all the dog attacks lately?!

    This kind of crap upsets me to no end. But thank god the schnauzer's ok. I think I would of kicked the other dogs owner.

    Last night, we were walking the boys. There's a couple that lives in my building and they have two very yappy pomeranians.

    I was sitting on the bench, Blue was at my side. Chris was further down the esplanade walking Wellie.
    Next thing I know I hear barking and growling. I look over, and the two poms attacked a goldendoodle. The girl who was walking one of the poms let go of the lead when the pom lunged for the goldendoodle, and apparently the other pom joined in.

    I was watching this horrific scene unfold and the doodle couldn't shake the poms off. The doodles owner was trying everything but she couldn't get a grip on the little dogs. Finally, the guy managed to pull off both poms and they quickly left.

    The goldendoodle walked by us and she was limping and bleeding. I asked the owner if she needed help but she said she just wanted to get her to a vet. Turns out she lives in my building as well, so knows who the poms are.

    I have no idea how everything ended, but who would have thought that such little things could have caused that much damage.

    Thanks to the "people" around here, I can't even take any of my dogs for walks outside my place because most have pittbulls and they run loose.

    Horrible glad the doggie is ok.

    I'm just waiting for a dog attack to come my way, ALWAYS dogs out roaming the streets here Thankfully my husband isn't afraid of dogs, so when we walk our dogs he goes with, armed with a stick so he can chase the strays away while I run with the dogs like a crazy person

    My husband and I have a similar plan. There are loose dogs out here every so often. When we walk together, our plan is for me to pick Goob up and run away with him as fast as I can while hubby fights off the dog if he needs to. When I am alone, I always look for the closest truck so if I see a lose dog, Goob and I can get in the bed and call for help. I also have a pocket knife with me because I walk along with Goob at night sometimes. Even though I'm on the look out, something can always come out of nowhere.

    I would hate to ever use it on another dog but I've heard so many stories of crazy dogs latching on and locking their jaws into their victim. If I saw a dog do this to Goob or ME, I would have something to protect us. Crazy??

    On the flip side, Goob is not good with other dogs and strangers so we have to ALWAYS be on guard when people are around. Once, he was off leash playing in the back and ran from the back yard to the front ( hubby opened the gate to go in front) RIGHT WHEN a guy was walking a small Maltese. Goob made a mad dash for the dog and ran into it like a wrecking ball. The dog flipped over and then Goob sat on him. It sounds kind of funny but it was totally scary because I didn't know if Goob would bite the dog or the guy. Thankfully nothing happened but I was so disappointed in us. I told my husband that if that was me, and a big dog ran towards GOOB, I would have been livid, scared, and done anything to protect my dog. Ever since then, we have been even MORE cautious to make sure Goob doesn't go in the front off leash.

    Ja, same here with our dogs. It can go either way, with some it works with others it doesn't, so I can't trust them to not attack first. Since I know I would do basically anything to protect my dogs I cant expect less from others... I'm terrified someone would hurt my dogs.

    My father in law once kicked on of our dogs when he brought his poodle to our house and our dogs went for it. I feel though it was his fault bringing the dog to us when we had specifically told him not to... he had a key to the gate and he just came and went as he wanted to, sometimes leaving the gate wide opened so our dogs were in the street. I was so angry, I don't think I will ever forgive him for that.

    I don't know what's the best way to protect my dogs while on a walk... a stun gun will hurt my dog as well if they are biting each other... wont it? It's such a shame, my dogs loves to go on walks, I would take them everyday if I could I have pepper spray but I'm scared to use it if my dogs are close, what if they get it in their face and they can't breath aargh.

    I had a friend that had bought pepper spray to hang on her key chain. She wanted to test it out once and she opened it, pointed it to her feet, away from her body, and gave a little spray. She said that she sat in her car for the next hour with her eyes on FIRE! I would be too scared that EVERYONE would get affected by it but I've never used it personally.

    I totally understand feeling like your FIL was to blame for the situation you described above. Some people just don't get it. I ALWAYS tell people who want to pet Goob that he isn't friendly. Sometimes, they keep coming closer thinking that I'm lying or they tell me, "Oh it's ok, I'm good with dogs" or "Oh no, he would never bite ME." I have to back away from them and say, "REALLY, he does not like strangers!" And we NEVER walk right by somebody. We either cross the street or we just walk in the street until we pass them. I don't take any chances.

    I never really thought about a stun gun. I would think that if the dogs are stuck together it would affect both but I have no clue! It's scary bc some dogs latch and won't let go for anything. My sister in law had a pit and it attacked their beagle. My father in law hit it over the head with a broom. The broom broke, it cut the dog's, head open, and it was still shaking the beagle like a rag doll. (Not saying anything against ALL pits. This was just the situation I experienced.)

    Thankfully their schnauzer seems to be fine. He's always been skittish and a bit crazy so I was worried how this would change him mentally. He doesn't seem to have any ill effects from it though. The owner of the dog is a very nasty person and cursed my father in law out for calling animal control and has been evicted from the RV park. I'm just glad he and his aggressive dog are gone for good. It's sad how one bad owner can cause so much chaos.

    Wow! Good for your father in law taking a stand. Hopefully that guy learns that there are consequences to his actions and doesn't repeat this same behavior at the next place they go.

    I've never tried my pepper spray... it's actually real tear gas... so it might be even worse My dogs are not aggressive towards strangers that are with me, but I'm SURE Boeboe would bite anyone coming into our yard if I'm not with. She's really a great guard dog in that way, our gardener is terrified of her, he wont even try to make friends with her Joey and Bennie would just lick people to death so no problem there...

    Pitbulls are tough... but I've also not ever met dogs with more patience and love. They are great dogs, but I think it's best to only have one and to socialize it right from the start. If they get into a fight it will be bad. But they can't be blamed for it I feel...
