|I must be lucky, as so far, I've had very very few encounters with problem dogs. Only twice, and both were at a dog park and both involved my moms Rottweilers. Charlie has never had a bad encounter, really, and neither has Ria.
However, I did have two toy-aggressive Rottweiler mixes jump my moms Rottweiler, Regan(who was COMPLETELY chill about everything) when she simply went to greet them at an off leash park. One dog growled and then the second jumped her and I suddenly had TWO MASSIVE dogs on top of mine, and the owners just stood there watching while I attempted to pull them off my dog. Regan was shaken, but fine, and the two dogs walked off as soon as I pulled them away from her. The owners kept walking, while saying "It wasn't OUR dogs fault." BULL. Grr...
Second was with my moms male Rottweiler, Grizz, who was only about nine months old at the time. He LOVED every dog, was very very good with doggy etiquette and behaved fantastically at the park. Unfortunately, a Husky spotted him, bolted ACROSS THE FIELD away from his owners who just stood where they were chatting it up with some other friends of theirs, was MINIMUM a 100 yards away from said owners, and he instantly began posturing and growling with his teeth showing to Grizz. I clipped Grizz's leash back on, put myself in between to body block the dog who could care less about me, while Grizz tried EVERY appeasement gesture a dog could possibly make to get this other dog to leave him be. The Husky kept at it, so I kept backing up Grizz with me in between the dog and eventually the Husky gave up and took off to go harass someone else's dog. I took Grizz home to let him cool off.
I DESPISE people who DON'T control their dogs or make any effort to do so.
I'm appalled that both owners stood around in those instances and that the Pit Bull owner just allowed it to run up to a MOVING CAR. WTF. Does she not care if her dog is HIT and KILLED? Ugh... Some people should not own dogs. Plain and simple.
