I could cry. Well, I have. My dog has just been attacked by another dog for the third time in just under 2 years. I won't be making much sense because I'm angry and shaken and I can't believe it's happened AGAIN. He's not physically hurt apart from a graze that's just taken the fur off but it's going to set him back now and I'm gutted.

I am sorry this happened, is it the same place or same dog?

Thank you smile

No its been a different dog and a different place every time. Last time was September of last year and he had come on so much since. Now we're right back to the beginning with his fear. I'm gutted for him sad

It's awful isn't it? Such a range of emotions. So sorry for you X

It's just ruining him. He never retaliates. He just tries to run away. My 13 yo put herself between him and the other dog and cried after about how he had tried to get behind her.

Poor him and poor you and your DD.

He's ok tonight smile We had a nice evening walk and he saw one of his pals and was happy to greet him, plus I was stuffing roast beef into him the whole time!

It feels strange this time. I know the owners of this dog. They live nearby and we chat a lot and have always had a bit of a laugh about how their, compared to mine, tiny dog barks and goes crazy at my huge dog. Then this. They were utterly mortified.

flowers your poor dog I hope he recovers flowers
Please please tell your daughter not to get between two fighting dogs I know this sounds horrible but its better the dog gets injured rather than her I had a friend put herself between her pug and a crossbreed and she had to have surgery on her arm and leg.

Wouldn't want a child to intervene but I wouldn't hesitate to step in if my dog was being viscously attacked.

Of course I would jump in for my dogs too but would never allow my kids to, I wasn't saying never to jump in just to explain to the daughter she could get hurt

Sending love to your pup (and you of course!) flowers

As the owner of an aggressive dog (towards other animals, not people), I don't allow my dog anywhere near others. Sadly this means on-the-lead only walks, but it's a small price to pay to keep other pets safe. I hope you do talk through this with the owners. If their dog has a history of this behaviour it's something they really need to address.
