    STUPID DOG!!! When we had tess on trial to see if I liked her, she was attacked by OUR dog! The mongrel ripped open her shoulder and put 35 stitches in her :( we didnt know how to tell the owners. Luckily we were going to buy her anyway.
    THis dog was later put down as it killed next doors goat and attacked kangaroos. We couldnt take any chances.

    Interesting enough my neighbor's dog "attacked" us yesterday, when I was leading my paint to the ring to ride. By "attacked" I mean barking loud and running towards us. She's dummy and always "greets" me like that (then wave her tail, let me pet her, etc.). My horse jumped up, pinned ears, turned and barreled both hinds trying to get the dog. Thankfully she missed. But that was scary!

    I think it's horrible that you put down your dog simply because it had prey drive. Prey drive does NOT equal aggression. It's your own fault for not keeping your dog safely contained or on a leash, not the dogs.

    Your joking aren't you? Only thing I see is maybe it should have been put down sooner.

    Seriously? The owners won't properly contain a dog with prey drive, so they should just kill it?

    Both my dogs would kill chickens or goats or whatever if I gave them the chance. They are carnivorous prey driven animals. It's the owners job to understand that and make sure they are responsible for their dog. If they can't understand that and can't be responsible, they shouldn't have dogs, period. It's not the dogs fault it followed it's instincts! FFS!

    Agree.
    Train the dog, leash the dog, muzzle the dog, watch out for the dog. Protect the dog from other animals and other animals from your dog. If you can't handle it, don't shoot the **** thing.

    I have a dog about 4 years old and a mare. That first I thought they hated each other because after working or riding the mare, I would un-tack her and groom her down. The dog would get sat and stared at her, then I would open up the pen and let my mare into the pasture. She was normally galloped of then the dog could catch her barking and such. Then when the mare got tired of it she would get buck and kicked at it. It's been going on for like a whole year now, after the first few months of it. I thought that it was a game to them because, the dog once stay at home when I went to the horses. Then I would let her out and she didn't gallop off, she just stood there whinnying until the dog started to run up to us. Then it went back to normal, that's strange huh?

    LOL, yeah....

    Also I hate when a dog is to mean, people just put them down.. Ever heard of training people, not talking about y'all. Or when someone owns puppies then gave away the dog when it's not a puppy anymore, that dog gets pass to person to person. And once that's how a dog became mean about the dog couldn't trust anyone.
