Was out walking Pixel just now when this massive dog ran over and attacked her for no reason. The kid walking it had no control, so I had to pull it off Pixie myself. Even then the kid was unable to keep it off her, so I had to block it until I could pick Pixel up.
I was livid and told him you don't walk a dangrous dog you can't control, and he claimed it's not dangerous and has never done this before etc, but I told him it's definitely dangerous when it would run over and attack my dog.
The dog must be around 40-50 kg, and my dog is 4.5 kg.
When I asked the kid where he lives, he mysteriously forgot which street and number, and when I said I would follow him home, he ran away. I ran home and got hubby and we tracked them down by running up the street where they had gone and asking some kids if they had seen them.
We knocked on the door to let them know that the dog should not be walked by kids, and the dad apologised and was just happy that my dog is ok.
When we got home I checked Pixel more thoroughly and she seems to be fine, but my hubby now insists that I can't walk her on my own anymore, as I obviously can't protect her.
I don't really know what to do, I am now scared to take Pixel out because this happened about 100 metres up the street from our house.
Does this classify as a dangerous dog? And what can I do?
I am so upset am I literally shivering and in tears.
