|My grandparents own this lot that has an old farm house on it. They rent it out to this guy, who has 2 dogs. The lot is very long, and the house sits at the very back. Also on this lot is a shed and a few grain bins, all belonging to my grandfather. So, we usually stop by often to get equipment and such out of the shed.
I along with other relatives are allowed to go on the property, but not in the house. If I am out there with Kato, I will usually go up in the part of the yard by the road away from the house and let him run around as there are good shade trees and lots of critters to chase.
But one time, the dogs of the guy who rents the farm house, ran up to me and Kato.
Here is a video of the dogs and a little bit of the lot.
The guy was not home this time. I know the dogs are outside dogs as my grandparents do not allow animals in the houses they rent out. So, these dogs are allowed off leash and are that way 24/7 here.
I went to the edge of the lot again today as Kato needed some shade after I went for a walk with him. As we are there, the guy who rents the place came home. He drove passed us, down the long lane and to the house waking his dogs up. Then turned around and came back down the lane. His dogs follow him and then see us...so naturally, they come running up. I didn't think much of it since the last visit was fine. But the guy stops his truck, gets out and says "hey, how ya doin? This one (the cattle dog) is friendly, but that one (the husky) is not." He then grabs the husky before it gets to Kato and puts him in the truck.
After a brief chat, he then tells me that his dog again is not good with other dogs and will kill my dog. He then leaves saying "Fair warning, ok?"
I just said "ok" and we parted ways...but as I left I thought....um, no...not ok.
His dog obviously does fine with Kato. I didn't mention they had met before, but if his dog was a dog that would indeed kill other dogs, wouldn't he be liable for keeping his "dangerous" dog off leash? Even if it was on this lot of land? Or would that somehow go back to my grandparents, who own the land?
Or maybe even me? Although, I don't see how being as I am allowed to walk on this land.
