Last week I was walking Chloe my GSD puppy down the street on a lead when a large bull breed type dog jumped over a small fence on the other side of the street and ran over to attack me and Chloe. I managed to fight off this 40 kg+ dog with 5 to 6 kicks to the head and get away...if I hadn't Chloe would have been killed for sure and I could have been seriously hurt.
Got home and ran the council and was told a ranger would be sent out, well no ranger came so the next day I rang council only to be told that nothing had been done because we're too busy and it could take up to a month to investigate... what a bloody joke. So this dog can do the same thing again until council gets off it's lazy arse and does something, I don't blame the dog or bull breeds as dog breeds are not the problem and we have tough laws in place for this.
I blame these Irresponsible owners and the attitude of the council which is reluctant to enforce these laws. Dog attacks are a big problem but instead of employing more rangers to protect residents and coming down hard on these so called owners, council would rather spend the money on long lunches and numerous overseas trips to their sister city...what a bloody joke.
