tell u the truth... the dog doesnt look like it had been attacked..
Oops, after my thread this looks bad
There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face
I can't walk my dog to the corner shop either. Mostly because it is on an extremely busy road and Frosty goes nuts. But also because I can't then go in the shop with her, I have to leave her tied up and vulnerable to any idiot and their dog that goes past. I don't even think it's legal - actually - given dogs are not allowed on our state footpaths unless they are attached to a responsible person by a lead 2m or shorter - you can't leave a dog tied up outside a shop anymore. You still see it though. It's not publicised much (unless you live in Darwin where little old ladies get fined for doing it).
I can't believe the woman kept going when she had safe refuge.
I also can't believe that the shop keeper who saw the dog out loose for 2 HOURS, didn't call council. I also can't believe that the owner only came and got the dog after the ranger was called. How did they do that when the dog was menacing the JRTx ?
When are we going to get real journalism.
looks a bit like sensationalised journalism from some one who is anti SBT!
my sister has an SBT and he is the world biggest sook!
I am not saying they are all like that but the dog in the picture doesn't seem to injured!
The Jack Russell looks okay, so would say the SBT just gave it a scare by being curious! I should have rang the newspaper when a Maltese Terrier bit my Ralph (SBT) on the nose a few years back, while we were out walking and Ralph was on a lead and the Maltese Terrier wasn't!
Hmmmmm Bella and I live next door to a Jack Russell, and I have to say that as much as I like our neighbours, their dog is a nightmare (through no fault of their own that I can identify mind you)!! He barks so much and so often, they had only lived there about 6 weeks when the ranger came to visit on a formal complaint. I am forever throwing chews over the fence (with his owners approval) to try to quieten him when his humans are not at home.
Given he is one tiny little dog and I have, well lets just say a multiple number of possibly soon to be declared dangerous dogs, why is it that I have NEVER had a visit from the ranger?? And that was just to do with the Jacks barking!!! There has been the occassional opportunity when the Jack has come in contact with both Bella and the pei and it is the Jack, on every single occassion that goes into attack mode, as it is with Charlie my swf.
I genuinely believe that as a general rule "bigger" dogs won't go a shorty as there is simply no challenge to them. Thats not to say that they may not look scary to the owner of the little dog, but if a dominant breed dog were to actually attack a smaller dog, there is something fairly major wrong with the dom breed dog. Where as I genuinely believe that there are many many "little" breed dogs who don't have an issue having a go at the dominant.
I am not trying to offend any owners out there, and please remember that I too own a swf, I feel I can comment here with some personal experience on the subject given I am in the thick of this never ending, one sided debate as the owner of a sbt, a swf and mum and foster mum to numerous "Chinese fighting dogs" - the Shar Pei. And after saying all of that I have just one more thing to say......I am sick to bloody death of the whole one sided subject and scared stiff of the likely consequences in the foreseeable future
