She lives in a small rental unit behind their house. She told the police she didn't want to file charges or have anything happen to the puppy. The shitzu that was attacked was taken to my vet. She (vet) told us the injured dog was OK, it wasn't really hurt. All the blood in the street (and there was a LOT) and on the dog actually belonged to the woman, because she was bitten numerous times while trying to get her dog away from the puppy.

I didn't even KNOW the people had a dog, and apparently they have THREE, all pit bulls. They never walk them, which is probably WHY there was a problem in the first place. I swear, some people just should not have dogs. Dogs need to walk, every day. Some need to walk more than others. But they ALL need to walk. AND they ALL need discipline (rules, not punishment).
My nearest neighbor is a half mile away. I let my dogs out three times a day to potty. I never let them out of my sight.
But the law here is, if I don't have them on a leash, Badaboombaddabing. 150 bucks. Pay the man at the door. The total weight of my two dogs is 35 lbs. What a major threat to my neighbors 2640 feet down the road on the other side of a 5 lane highway.
I agree with you about leashing your pet in certain scenarios. But I've cared for my dogs 7 & 9 years without incident. Now they want me to tie a leash around my buddies' necks every time they need to go outside? I beg to differ. They'll just have to fine me. Fork 'em.

If they try to fine you, shoot the son of a bitch for trespassing.

Don't tempt me. I may get away with it if I blame it on a flashback. I AM unstable, you know.

My husband runs in our neighbood. The other day a boxer cornered him and when my husband put his hand out in a friendly gesture, the dog bit him. My husband called the cops on the owners and they are being fined. Its fine and dandy if you live in the country, but if you let your dog run loose in a populated area, you are just asking for Animal Control to pick him up.

My dad shot his last dog that wouldn't stay inside the fenceline (it's only a barbed wire fence to keep the neighbours cows out of his property). It kept wandering up to the neighbours place which is about half a km away.

The dog he has now is pretty good. She goes for long gallops all over the place, but never goes up to the neighbours. Her favourite passtime is catching hares and rabbits.

We have two dogs, and if we leave the gate open, they'll bugger off up the street. i don't agree with dogs being 'let out' in residential areas, but when you're in a rural area, it's a bit different imo.

Oh, and I wanted to say, Hobo looks identical to a dog I had once. His name was monty and he was a chiwawa x shitzu. Same wiry coat and all. Exactly the same colouring. He was a wanderer. Actually, I should have called him hudini. He could escape any fence. If he couldn't climb it, he'd just dig under it. He spent a lot of time on a long rope, but then he'd bark.

In the end I had to find him a new home when Mum got sick. I didn't have time to look after her and chase a wayward dog all over the neighbourhood.

Why the hostility? I simply gave an opinion. You disagree? Fine. There is no need to be an asshole about it though.

That is a little different. I was speaking more in terms of being in close contact with other people. And I acknowledge that some dogs can be off-leash and not run up to other people or attack or act up. Those dogs are well trained. Not all dogs are though, and it's hard to tell if a dog is off leash running around the neighborhood which he will be, unless you know the dog personally. In the country it doesn't matter as much, and I agree the laws should be different in those situations.

Yeah.... really they should have two ordinances. One for city and one for county. But they don't.
If I ever take my dogs to a congested area or any place they are not familiar with, I am sure to leash them. For their safety.

We have a Basenji - Maybe German Shepard (?) mix that is like that. Smart sucker but willful as hell. Sweet, too (thank goodness). He is the first dog I've ever had that I actually wanted.

My ex had a Basenji once. He said she was the coolest dog. She didn't bark, but made singing noises. My husky makes really interesting sounds. She's very chatty. She is also sweet and willful as hell, I'm learning.

Mine very rarely barks but does this great BAROOOO howl when he gets excited (as in going for a walk, his favorite thing to do)

Sugarpop. I apologize for my cheap shot. Too much going on.
How about we agree to disagree
