You don't have a lot of options at this point. Lets hope the facility will end up kicking them out as enforcement because it sounds to me they are the type who will not follow the rules no matter what.

Go out and get yourself some mace/pepper spray and nail that dog if it so much as glances at you or your dog. I would then go door to door and recommend everyone else does the same. Maybe some public shaming will work but if not at least everyone has been warned and have a chance to arm themselves if they wish.

FYI, keep documenting everything even if it's just in a personal journal with time/dates in it. Wouldn't hurt to get picture evidence of the dog running loose all the time too. This way when something happens you'll have some sort of proof to fall back on. This is actually advice lawyers give to those being abused, stalked, etc so it should work in the case of dogs. Why do I say this? I bet they are also the type to sue if something happens to their precious dog.

luckily most dogs around here are nice and those that aren't are kept on a leash. My neighbors dog is a rescue and hates most other dogs so when they walk her she is on a leash and has a muzzle and they have both hands on the leash. This dog is total sweetie once you get to know her and adores their two YO daughter.
I am very protective of those I love human and animal alike if a dog attacked my dog I'd be grabbing the nearest blunt object and that dog would regret ever meeting my dog. Let alone attacking him.

On another note another dog that is old and hard of hearing is allowed to roam free. I got in my truck, backed up and them saw the dog. I assume it was on the other side of truck. Later hooked up trailer and went to leave and dog was in front of truck ignoring my honking. They called it to move and I explained I almost ran it over earlier. I guess I was to be more direct and say " hey idiot it is your responsibility to keep your old hard of hearing dog safe and tie it up" it would have been perfectly happy unde a tree or at trailer. There friend backed up over it and killed it this weekend. :(

That's too bad. It's always the animal that pays for irresponsible ownership, isn't it??
