I have to complain to someone. I am so sick to death of not being able to safely walk my dogs. I have 3, one large and two small. I live in a country town and not in the best part of town. The part of town where some people think big dogs make them look tough. Firstly, my large dog was pestered by a wandering pit bull cross. Fortunately a kind person let me put him in his fenced front yard while I went and got my car to take him home. The dog even circled the car when he was in it! I now drive to the "better" side of town to walk him without any problems. I walk my small dogs locally as I can pick them up if there is a problem. Yesterday I was walking one of them and another pitt bull cross comes running out of an unfenced property. I saw him coming so I picked up my dog, but the pit bull was trying to bite him and slightly grazed my arm with his teeth. I yelled loudly, then the dog ran back where he came from but I think someone called him as when I walked away, two guys came out the front. I abused them about the dog but they just looked at me stupid. I'm told our council won't do anything unless there is something serious. It's not fair that my dogs are stuck in the backyard because people couldn't care less about keeping their dogs enclosed.
