So I called my neighbors yesterday. I talked with the mom of the family, she was pretty nice, and understanding about the whole ordeal. Of course neglected to show any concern about my two dogs, if they had any injuries, and if there were any vet bills inquired due to the fight their dogs started.
I was extremely polite, yet firm, I simply stated that enough is enough, I see your dogs all over our neighborhood, I have braked for them several times, they are now showing aggression toward other animals, and I simply cant stand for it another moment! I told them that they either keep the dogs under control, or the very next time I seem them running unattended I will be forced to call the police. I said nothing of the possibility of the dogs being shot. Lets face it, out here, a dog could disappear, and no one would ever REALLY find out what happened to it. She said she understood, she apologized, and that was that.
No more than an hour later, what do I see coming up the road?! The very same two dogs that attacked mine, I was outraged! Of course my husband was at work, and I simply could not shoot them, so I brought my dogs in from outside, called the sheriff's department and explained the whole situation. The dogs had passed, and I'm sure at one point returned to their home. Late yesterday I noticed a county sheriff pulling out of their drive way. It didn't look like he took any of the animals with him, so I'm sure the police officer must of gave them a verbal smack down.
As of yet, I haven't seen anything of the dogs.
