    Horse camp and loose aggressive dogs

    I am wintering in Florida where you bring your horse, rent an apt. Or stay in your rv. Most act like it is a dog park and dogs run willy nilly.

    My dog is either in my apt or with me when I do chores and never left unattended.

    The neighbors have a medium size dog that attacked a very small dog last year and caused major injuries. They didn't even inquire as to how the dog was nor offered any compensation for the large vet bill.

    It seemed to get along with larger dogs and they have been letting it run loose. Today it attacked mine and the husband and wife were trying to pry its jaws loose and couldn't. I ran full speed and punched the dog in its Side as hard as I could until it let go. What amazes me is they are upset at me for hitting there dog. I am so pissed I can't believe it.

    I cussed them up one side and down the other and they didn't say much after I told them this isn't the first time their dog attacked.

    I called the owners of the park and raised a ruckus who inturn called the dog owners and they complained to her about me hitting there dog. If the tables were turned and someone hit my dog to get it to release I would not have any issue with that at all.

    I also found out that when it chomped on the small dog they couldn't get it to release. My dog comes first and these people are idiots.

    Ok rant over, my dog seems tender nears his ear but I can't see any injury.

    The injury might be internal. I would have a vet check your dog out.

    Sorry this happened to your dog and I hope s/he recovers physically and mentally.

    I agree with gunslinger.

    Yes - vet check to make sure everything is OK and send bill to mean dog owners for reimbursement.

    You did the right thing calling the property owner. You might want to take this a step further and call the local animal control or police. This is no longer an isolated incident/off day for this dog - a pattern is emerging and it needs to be noted and stopped (I don't mean put the dog down rather ensure that it is kept under control at all times).

    I am contemplating that. The other attack was not reported which was a serious one so there isn't any documentation that as of yet but that one happened last year

    Report it and start the paper trail on that dog.

    Wow. People can be so inconsiderate. They're lucky all you did was punch their dog! If I had been in their shoes, I wouldn't have had an issue with that course of action! I would maybe attempt to confront the owners and say, like 'Look, the next time I see your dog running loose I am going to call animal control'. Just to give them a heads up?

    Your little friend is really cute. (: I'm sorry he got bitted ):

    That's OK - it is still worth mentioning last year's incident while you bring the current incident to light. I know it's a distasteful task to do but this is probably the only way you can get the dog owners to pay attention to concerns and to control the dog.
