Well, a lot of you helped me with the whole Jack and Duke situation. But for the ones who don't know my Dukie he's a 1 yr old rottie so he's very protective over the yard but when it comes to people coming in the house he is fine except for Jack, duke went off the handle that time. Mainly cause he knows we have accepted them in the house and what not.
So everytime someone goes by and he is outside he will bark...no biggy right? (many dogs on this street bark at ppl going by) Well I have had troubles with the guy next door and his stupid kids. I've had to get rid of my first show dog because he was getting teased to much, we did file a complaint with the cops because it was getting way out of hand.
NOW to yesterday and this death threat! I had Duke outside he was out longer then usual because angle my other dog needed time inside (she can't be with duke she will fight) So I hear Duke barking, I hear agressive clapping and I knew it was James! So I ran to bring him in. Duke was feet away from the fence barking and jumping in circles. He was NOT lunging or fence fighting at all.
Then I get a call asking for my mom. She wasnt here so he asked if it was me and I said yes he said well I guess you'll do..in a snoty type way.
So he said he was worried about duke getting out because summer is coming and his kids are wanting to play in their yard. And he stated SEVERAL times that if my dog was to get out there would be trouble. I told him that Duke wont leave the property he wont jump the fence and james is like well he looks big enough. Duke wont even leave my side because he gets seperation anxioty why the hell would he wonder. James made it clear to me that " just be prepaird that if that dog gets out...."
I said Duke wouldnt do anything and that he's just a guard dog. And he's like well he looks vicious and I said cause now im getting mad at all the times he said "if he gets out" I said YOU don't EVEN KNOW MY DOG! And he gave UHG that kind of laugh like just those "your stupid laugh" you know?
I was soooooo upset I basicly hung up the phone. I was shaking SO freakin bad. Im so glad I was talking to a friend online because he knows exactly how to calm my nerves I adore him so much. Other wise I don't know what I would have done. I then called my mom and we are going to the police AGAIN this time we are taking Duke in to the cops. And I have written down the time/date and convo so we can start documenting it.
Like I said before with the whole Jack thing I would die for Duke and now im prepared to fight for his saftey. I will do whatever it takes to make my baby safe. I mean James basicly said that he's got a gun and knows how to use it he's not going to take on a huge rottie alone. If he does kill my dog or even scrathces my dog. Man I don't even want to say what I would do! Cause id end up in jail...
Can anyone give any advice on this? I know its not illegal to have a dog in your yard that barks! Duke has never once tried to get out of the yard. I wish I could get a restraining order on them to stay away from the fence line, do you think we can get one because he has made a threat to our family? Has anyone gone through this before?
