|Regan was fine with little dogs until one incident. She was a Rottweiler, loved all other dogs, or so I thought. But a little Schnauzer must have found her intimidating, or something, because he was fearful of her and was instantly yipping and barking at her and refusing to go anywhere near her. Regan ignored it for a while, before she leapt up and CHASED this little Schnauzer while it screamed. The owners simply called him, saying it was 'normal' for him to do that. SO WHY WAS HE AT THE DOG PARK? I grabbed Regan before she could do any real damage. Knowing her, she would have stomped her front paws on him and trapped him on the ground, and I didn't want an injured dog, so I leashed her up and ended dog-park time for her.
I have seen it a few rare times however, where a dog mistakes them for prey while they're running, or especially, while they're squealing(yes, I've heard dogs squeal!). A friends Shepherd is like that with little dogs, granted, she's also SSA and reactive, so that's not necessarily something unexpected. I have no doubt in my mind she would hurt or even kill a smaller dog.
