I love chasing me down some mutts, but I try to make my girl behave, and not all dogs will run some will run and then spin and bite.
I remember on a trail ride once a boxer/ rottie mix was biting her on the legs, I kept her calm and made her behave for a 1/3 of mile of this and eventually I loosened the rein and let her rip, she cole cocked him in the jaw, and I swear she broke it because he didn't make a peep, when I turned around to see he was gone. And I haven't seen him since. The owner KNEW he was following me and didn't try to get him, and I gave him the benefit of the doubt. I do feel bad for just letting my horse kick him, but my horse means to much to me to have a bunch of vet bills.
