I understand things happen, but its still your responsibility to control your dog. The same with your grandfather.

I also wanted to add that this only my opinion.

Flytobecat I understand, and your opinion makes TONS of sense too, and that very well could be what i'm up against.

I would also double check that leash law lilkitty. I live in NC, and I'm not aware of an area that DOESN'T have a leash law, as per our local Animal Control. We have a lot of trouble around here with people "moving to the country (which we aren't) so they can let their dogs run loose." Our AC officer told me that pretty much the entire state has leash laws, and they are constantly fighting people who don't believe in it. This was the same AC officer that told me if a loose dog set foot on my property, I had the right to shoot it.

I agree.

Once the dog is off private property (the road and easement belong to the township, county, state, etc), then it is a public nusiance.

Apachie. We are in the Hickory area. Off towards Granite Falls, Grace Chapel. It's out in the boondocks lol!! And no leash laws here. When the AC officer came out to check the horses. (long story short.) someone reported a horse on the property for missing an eye.. blah. Blah. Several dogs were just running around that belong to people around here, and he mentioned nothing of it, because there isn't a leash law here in our area. But we are WELL out of city limits.

As I understand it, your sister was on her way back and your dog saw her human "running" home with something chasing it. I wouldn't blame your dog, but she did bite another dog and now you have to be extra careful with her around other all other dogs, just in case.

I say that because I was in the same sort of situation last summer. My aunt lives up the road and her dog and my dog pretty much grew up together, played together all day, got along great. But one day my aunt was over with her dog and she was petting my dog, nothing unusual. Her dog started getting snippy and barking in my dog's face (rottie/lab cross) and all of a sudden they were at each other's throats.
It was so out of ordinary and both dogs you can tell to sit, lay down and go over there off leash from a distance, they are trained dogs. It took my dad and uncle to split the two dogs up (mine is a german shepard, they are both big dogs weighing around 80lbs each)

Until this day my dog will not let another dog on the property without getting worked up. Even if they are in someone's truck she still gets worked up. My dad is doing all that he can to try and help her get over this new insane protective phase she is in. She is a lot better and my aunt's dog can come over again, but as soon as I pull in my dog chases her off the property.

We are well aware of how serious this could have become and we sat down with my aunt and uncle and talked over how we were going to deal with the two dogs that used to run back and forth our properties playing all day.

I think the best thing you can do is sit down and talk to your grandpa about new ways of keeping both your dogs on their own property.

Best of luck with clearing this situation up. And I do hope the flinging of the little dog doesn't stick with your dog.

I like to do research and if you are in Catawba County this was on the Catawba County Animal Control site

Catawba County does not have a leash law. An animal remain loose as long as it is on the owner's property and displaying a valid rabies vaccination tag and is not a nuisance.

Which pretty much says to me they don't have a leash law in place but you may as well have

Lol yeah, we are right on the edge of Caldwell County and Catawba County.

But in a way, this law (I looked it up too, Wicked Nag, lol) is supporting you as well, lilkitty, because it specifies that a nuisance dog (which is not allowed) includes one that chases, snaps at, bites, etc, at bicycles, pedestrians, cars and so on. Technically you are both in the wrong. I think the best thing to do is to just discuss how not to let it happen again.
