    WTF? Seriosly...wtf?

    I took my dog for a run yesterday. During the run, a neighbor's dog with a pseudo-muzzle and a leash (leash had no human attached to it) came out of nowhere and tackled my dog. Marco (my dog) took the tackle and didn't even fight back. I screamed at the attacking dog and pulled him off my boy.

    Some neighbor saw it all and didn't help out at all. His contribution was to yell at me after that instead of "screaming like a girl" I should have just "picked up [my] ****ing dog." Yeah, like I'm going to pick up a 52+ lb dog when another dog is trying to attack it.

    I tried to explain why I did what I did and he just told me to "stop acting like a girl." Then he threatened to beat me up. Whatever. I ran my dog home to get him looked over my mom (he was fine, no blood or punctures) then went back to figure out what had happened.

    Apparently this neighbor (not the screaming doosh but the inept dog owner) had her dog tied to a stroller while she was playing with her 2 year old when I came up running with Marco. Strollers don't hold back big dogs. Dog came forward. This family tried to pass off some sob story. I didn't call animal control on them because it was a one time incident of stupidity. If it happens again, I will.

    The guy who yelled at me lives across the street and has no association with them. He did have some choice things to say to me when I came back to sort everything out. I yelled back at the guy and it almost came to blows when he threatened me. I should note that he was obese and smoking. And easily 50+...or if he was still in his 40's he was totally busted. I told him to catch me. He then called the cops and told them that I was threatening him, which I found to be a hearty irony considering he said that I was acting "like a girl."

    I ran home to go shower off and get ready for family dinner (ribs! nom!) and that was it.

    Gonna go run right now...need some exercise!

    I hate slack dog owners! Last time that happened to my dog Vic it was a Pitbull that came charging out of no where, I tried to scare the pit away by yelling and waving a stick I was carrying but it didn't work, the pit was on Vic in what seemed like a millisecond! Vic is no slouch when it comes to protecting either of us so he went right at it! they were a ball of fur for a second so I took advantage and found a tree branch which I quickly used to bash the pit, seemed like he didn't want to stop and I know Vic would have lost the fight so as much as I hated to do it I bashed the pit in the head =0( and did so repeatedly till he let go, he yelped and ran across the street for just a second, then he turned and ran full force again towards Vic, I waited till he was just at the right spot and I gave him a full on crack in the head with the branch, =0( he yelped again but this time loudly and ran across the street, but this time he kept on running away leaving a trail of blood behind him. =0( it was really hard for me to hit him but I wasn't going to let him kill my buddy Vic.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

No problems today. One of the kids in the house with Sir Doosh was in the front. I smiled and waved and gave him a "Hey, buddy."

    Good on you, ILB. Vicious dogs are vicious dogs. If this one hadn't been muzzled, I may have had to do the same.

    Call animal control on the ***** with the vicious dog. There is no excuse. She should mind her dog regardless of the fact she's a breeder. Also, call the police on the ******* that threatened you. Like to see his lazy ass pick up and run off with a 52lb dog. My dog weighs slightly more than that, I can *barely* pick him up but not for long and not for any great distance. GRRRRRRR I hate stupid people with vicious dogs that don't do anything about their dogs attacking people/other dogs etc. GRRRRRRRrrr.

    Yeah, that. My dog and I were attacked by 2 Rottweilers earlier this year and I'm still fighting to be compensated for the $400 vet bill. The redneck halfwit owner told me he lets his dogs out "For a few minutes a day so they can run around". To my knowledge his dogs have attacked 2 other people since me and yet he's still letting them out. In my not-at-all-humble opinion, they should have been destroyed after the first attack. As should he.

    This is a particular sore point for me right now because I've just got back from a very pleasant hour at the dog park, ruined when some imbecile showed up with a pit-bull mix which immediately started snapping and lunging at the other dogs while its moronic owner kept claiming "It's OK, he's friendly."

    GRRRRRRR I hate stupid people with vicious dogs that don't do anything about their dogs attacking people/other dogs etc. GRRRRRRRrrr.
    Sing it!

    Animal Control may not be able to do much but you should report it, so they have the attack on file in case (or 'when') there's another.

    Up here, you can call the police if a dog bites. I would advise going that route. My dog, myself and my husband at the time were swarmed by a pack of **** bulls / rottenweiler type dogs. My dog is GSD/Siberian Husky and not a fighter by nature. These dogs were snarling etc. My dog was leashed (of course.) I was in vain trying to kick the ****ing bastard dogs, my husband was trying to fight them off, too. Finally, the trailer trash owner came out and called them off. He did not apologize, at least not enough to matter, so I completely lost my temper. I shouted that if the ****ing things came near me, my husband or my dog *EVER* again I would find a *** and shoot them. I will do anything to protect my dog.

    Turns out the beasts attacked a Canada Post employee so dude wasn't getting mail delivered anymore. I think the SPCA forced him to fix his fencing/keep the dogs under control or else.

    Still makes me angry to think of it, my dog could have been killed.

    Maybe if the fat ass tried to chase Sabre, he would drop dead of a massive heart attack.

    Picking up a dog while it is being attacked by another dog would be an excellent way to get bitten oneself. My wife has a three inch scar on her hand from the time she tried to pull our shepherd/mongrel away when it initiated a dominance dispute with our Irish Wolfhound. Did I say the mongrel was not too bright and a bit psychotic?

    Hahaha. I got a pit-dalmatian. She's the sweetest dog ever, never bites anyone. She got attacked by a bigger dog that escaped from the backyard. I moved her and kicked the other dog away. Scary as hell.

    In this town, I seem to only have a problem with miniature-chihuahua-whatevers off leash bolting out of peoples' houses at us. I have kicked one off of my dog before. Our dog is medium-size (40lb/19kg), but a rescue dog and pretty fearful of anyone and anything that isn't me or my wife.

    It sounds like you are handling it with the other dog owner, more or less. Maybe it was just a lame excuse, maybe they were just careless, whatever. If there was no harm done, let them know you'll call animal control next time, but if you don't want to this time, that's your call.

    However, the unrelated neighbor who was screaming back at you? Next time tell him, "If you're not gonna actually help, go into your house. NOW."
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Reflexes from 14 years of fencing, the grip of a massage therapist, and the speed/stamina of a triathlete...if he caught me, he'd have a problem. If. And yeah, he'd probably have a heart attack first.

    And to everyone else, thanks. I'm going to call animal control tomorrow and get an official "recommendation" from them.

    Yeah I own a Pit Bull myself and i never let him out without me and him on a 6 foot leash....I have to be a responsible pet owner...and I know the power of the Pit Bulls, he is my second one. Cool thing about him is he loves other dogs...I socialized him as a pup and throughout his adult life. He would only chase a burglar or someone trying to do me harm. Other than that he loves everyone, he knows who is who, smart dog if you ask me!

    +100000000 Especially the ones who ignore leash laws. That just drives me nuts. One of my dogs is dog agressive when she's on the leash and the last thing I want is for some fool to let there dog run where it's not supposed to and start a brawl with my dog. Nothing like trying to break up a dog fight while simultaneously keeping my second dog (a 100lb lab/great dane mix) out of the action.

    I was walking my dogs a few years ago when out of nowhere a boxer mix charges and attacks one of my dogs. I reacted without thinking with a well placed kick to its ribs, raised my arms above my head and roared at it. That dog took off and ran like there was no tomorrow. Lucky for me - I don't know what I would've done if it hadn't.
