I think the only reason I handled it so calmly was that my main priority was not to get pissed at the man or the dog. My first priority was to check my dog over, inspect each wound, and take care of it as soon as possible. He's not a terribly friendly dog but he is my big baby and he loves my family. My 3 year old climbs all over him and he could care less - after all they were raised together!

Zero will be 3 on 8/7 and I've had him since he was about 10 weeks old so it's just like something happening to my child.

The day we brought him home:

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

No he's not as he is my breeding male.

I'd make a nice throw rug out of that dog. Then I'd choke the owner.

A dog that's animal aggressive has no business being in a barn environment where there are other animals running around everywhere. That's a no-brainer.

I'd have punted that stupid mutt if he attacked my dog then kicked him and his idiot owner off my property and told him his dog was not welcome back. Ever. And if yhe owner let his dog loose again? I'd be screaming so loud people would be calling the cops thinking someone was dead. He had no right to let his dog loose on YOUR property after he attacked YOUR dog.

Zero is doing much better. There turned out to be more to the wound than I initially saw. The vet gave him an antibiotic injection, 10 days of oral antibiotics, an x ray to ensure it wasn't broken/fractured, and a topical spray. He is back to walking on it though!

Glad for the update. It is usually an unaltered male that gets attacked as they are a threat to other dogs and get singled out.

I've warned him before to keep his dog away from mine since both his and mine are intact and I have a female on the property too. The funny thing is his male pays NO attention to her, even when she's in heat and only goes after my male when she's not around. Regardless he's been told the dog isn't welcome anymore... and he's to pay the vet bills.

Glad to hear he's doing better. Has the dog's owner said anything to you in the way of an apology?
