... She was n't badly hurt but I think the same dog went for a friends dog too. We were walking alongside the canal and the dog concerned leapt at ours grabbing her muzzle in his jaws snarling and trying to shake her. The owner grabbed him smacked him and pulled him off. He was pretty out of control... Am I right in thinking if you have a dog like this it should be kept on a lead? Would you report it and who too?
Thanks Pigs. Jellydog is fine thanks, the other dog was much smaller than her, he was lucky she's such a wimp soul. I will report it to the dog warden particularly as his owners action was not one of surprise.
Hope you and your doggie are ok, it's very scary when it happens. I would report the incident at the very least the owner should have their dog muzzled. I had a similar experience 2 months ago. I was 37 weeks pregnant walking (more like waddling) my dog down by the river. There was a woman coming towards me with 6 jack Russell's and they acted as a pack and all went for my dog. It was terrifying! The owner wasnt even bothered and did not ask if my dog or even of I was ok! Defo report I think it's terrible that you cannot walk your dog safely
