The harder I wag- the more friends- I have

|That's what I was thinking, Bianca. It's also possible that the dog loves other dogs...but not on his property. If the owner didn't know, since they might not have strange dogs coming and going, then I could see why he figured it was safe to have the dog out.
As for the legal steps you can take, it's going to depend on the laws where you reside.
"I've always said that if a dog attacked mine I would not hesitate to kill the attacker to save my dog, but I never knew if that would mean a lawsuit or if it would be considered justifiable force."
I don't know about where others live, but here you can kill a dog for growling. So yep! You may use lethal force if the dog attacks.
