    Some of you people worry me.
    I totally agree........I hate it when dogs small, large or medium sized think they can do whatever they like........

    Also to clarify, I don't think my dog is a target because she is submissive. She is not timid at all... she's quite confident and will greet other dogs nicely. If they have a dominant posture she will get low, roll over or invite play. Most other dogs seem to love this.

    I don't know what it is about her, some people have suggested her colouring (white face) or perhaps that she has what looks like 'nervous energy' - she is always on the go. But she has been attacked from behind a few times now while minding her own business. She didn't have time to submit, the dogs were just on her like that. It is terribly frightening.

    I think there are things dogs notice about eachother - either through body language or smell - that we just cannot sense. My current dog seems to be liked by pretty much all dogs, even those that normally are not much into interacting with other dogs. I think even my old dog who was extremely selective would have liked her. I don't know why. It's not just the tail wagging or her posture, there must be something else going on there too.

    My old dog was attacked twice and both times were at or after Dog Obedience.
    One Heeler got away from its owner and went straight for Lacey A Heeler also).
    Then after training we were leaving and she got attacked from behind.
    There was no reason why it just happened.
    So I am at a loss to as why she was the targeted one seeing there were many other dogs about at this time.

    Don't you have the small dogs go for yours, that happens with me all the time. Only just this Sunday at Beechworth...We are quietly walking and this little white fluffy lunges at Annabelle....She did not even move and just kept walking by my side. I felt rather proud as people commented on how lovely she was. And this is my Annabelle, previously dog aggressive
