Thankfully it wasn;t the dog I walked

The two dogs I walk regularly tend to pull, they also jump at people. Now those who don't like dogs, tend to be very rude, and make lies up. One lady walked through our store, and guys dog jumped at her, she said the dog bite her and reported the dog. I was walking down the street, and this guy as infront of me with a larger dog as well. The dog I had pulls, he is very strong nd can pull your arm the wrong way (he has broke the owners before). These stupid teenagers come flying up behind me, scared me and the dog. Luckily I had a good grip on him as he as pulling anyways smelling a sign. They run past the guy infront of me, scared his dog and the dog bite one of the teenagers.This kids parents put on this big scene, I started laughing at how stupid she was acting, they kept asking me, and I go nope didn't see anything.

It was, but they deserve, I was always taught to avoid dogs, and ask to pet it. But again it shows the parenting now a days, many parents see nothing wrong. I have walked dogs, and kids come charging towards the dog (meanwhile the parents are standing there), and when I walk the other way, and avoi dthem with the dogs they make faces, and comments that the kid just wants to pet the dog (and I say what when it bites the kids head off).

hi ricki that reminds me of the last dog we had and she was a Heniz 52 mix but sweet always.We had a fenced in yard but these three teenagers walked by after school and called to her then jabbed a long stick through the slats of the fence and jabbed her. I told them when I saw them "do not torment my dog" but they just giggled adnd walked off.Well they kept doing this and I called the parents a some other girls." That did not help,.Well inevitable happened. Swap hated those tormenting girls so the next time one really jabbed her hard and made a wound. Then I heard a scream as my dog had got our gate open and she jumped the girl with thelong stick and bit her hand.But when I called to her she came obediently into my home. Of course the girls made a big scene and I again told the parents of those three sisters that my dog had never been vicious but your girls kept tormenting her and they made a sore in her side.: well it went to court but meantime we had moved and since we were going into an apt we had given our dog to my mom who lived in a different city and county so the judge threw it out. But He did tell that family that any dog if tormented long enough will bite the tormentor as they think that person is their enemy. So it did not cost us anything.Swap never bit anyone again and lived to an old old age. But I hated it that she bit someone but yet those three girls should have known better but they were just mean. Any dog if provoked over and over will bite their provoker.

I can understand the parents were upset seeing their child was bitten by a "ferocious" dog. But do they know what was their child doing when he was bitten? I'm afraid people who don't own dogs are a little ignorant about how to behave around dogs. They teach their children not to cross the street on the red light, but they don't teach them how to behave around dogs. I think you should rather tell their parents what was going on, maybe they'll learn something from this. What happened in the end? Was that guy in front of you punished in any way? Because I don't see him guilty of anything. It would have been a stupid thing to put the guilt on a dog that was doing his job.
