I’m so sorry!! If this happened to my pup even once I would be petrified, I can’t even imagine it happening twice! 

Can you still report both incidents? Or no, since time has passed? 

I hate irresponsible dog owners! We live in a townhouse community & one of our neighbors leaves his front door open so his dog can come and go as he pleases. His dog is ALWAYS roaming around the (busy!!) parking lot. I am constantly looking out for the dog, and both Fiance and I have had close calls with hitting the dog. I would be devastated if I ever did. Hate the neighbor for not realizing what could so easily happen.

The animal owner needs to pay for the vet bill, and leash the dog from now on. It isn’t the dog’s fault that it has an irresponsible dog owner. Can you talk to the owner? I would do that, and then file a report. The owner needs to be more responsible. I am glad your dog is okay. I can only imagine how scary that would be to experience that.

Make sure you report the dog. Our family dog was attacked by a neighbor dog. The owners didn’t do much but it was our fault because our dog was not on a leash and approached their dog. The dog later bit the owner and they didn’t know if the owner would ever have full function in his hand anymore. They ended up putting the dog down.

 

These people need to leash their dog before it attacks a child. There’s no saying that it wouldn’t attack a child if it is attacking other dogs.

Oh it actually sounds like these owners are trying to be responsible. Good for them and good for you!

gpsp2B:  Thanks. I actually own 2 dogs, and I’m a wonderful dog owner, most likely more responsible for 90% of dog owners out there 🙂

People just get so defensive when they don’t understand dog behaviour. 

And yeah, if there was an aggressive dog that continiously approached my dogs on our walks, I would most certainly walk elsewhere.
