DON'T BLAME THE DOG! Dogs are dogs... and some have bad owners that don't know how to train them, or keep them under control. The owners may not have known that the dog got loose, or whatever. Talk to the owners, or call animal control and report it.

I have a dog, little, 7 kg, but it has been struck by an idiot when pup era, now, does not make himself touch rimember from no one, him, associates and bites. Never leave him alone, is always to the leash, and if someone approaches, I inform him, he seems little and to be fondled, but bites. A gentleman has insisted, has touched him and has bitten him, little, not from points, but I had informed him. am adverse to the people who leave the free dogs, am in danger and can be dangerous, especially big dogs. The dog has to be taken and bound. If he loves your dog.

Yes Marge. I just left him I took him to get a hair cut. He was going to walk back home I told him I wouldn't let him walk home from the barber-shop, since he had injured his leg. My daughter is not taking it serious, I am going to go over to to the people house that owns the dog. even though the dog didnot bite him, the dog was the cause of him getting his leg injured. from jumping the fence trying to get away from it. that can happen to another kid. this time the dog will bite the person.

I would talk to the owners of the dog. If that didn't do any good, I would report them and the dog. A dog running loose that bites and chases people is a danger.

I think you need to find out first where the dogs belongs and second file a police report. Because my dog bite someone and they had to come out and inspect him and if wasnt for the guy waiting a week before he called they would of taken my dog for 10 day to quarantine him. So I think you need to put charges on that guy because that dog could bite more kids and what the owner going to say about it. I would get him for the hospital bill. So please do what is right and go after him.

That's horrible. My son was bit by a dog at the age of 3, my boyfriend's Old English Shepherd Dog, got 30 some stitches, the bad thing about dog bites it is a dirty wound and can get infected easily, the scaring can also be bad, might want to get that ointment to put on it to help with the healing process. Yes, I do think Owners should be held responsible for their animals. In our state, if that happened we could call Animal Control and have them removed.

I definitely would talk to the owners. Even if their dog didn't bite your grandson. Your grandson was injured because he was running from the dog. I'm sure it will be an argument though. You might want to ask an attorney what your rights are. When I was in the 3rd grade I got bit by a dog. I needed 23 stitches. I don't blame the dog. I blame the owners.

Yes for sure your daughter needs to talk to them. And owners should be made aware of this situation. It is sad to learn about all this things. Dogs need to be trained properly and a bad grooming may lead to ill-tempered dog. There may be other isues like health factor. Anyway, when a dog bites someone the owner can't deny the responsibility.

You must take some action to catch the dog and handover to the municipality. Or report to them immediately . Such dogs should be killed.

yes the owners need to be aware of this issue, as i dont agree with the dog being destroyed but the owners should put him on a lead. mine likes to attack as well so he is always on a lead and watched carefully, i know if he bit someone i would want to know about it thats for sure.

Dogs are the most trustfull animals on earth because they not only protect the humanbeings from theives but also help the police to catch the criminals.A dogs nose has got a trimindous ability to smell which makes dogs very sharp.A dog can smell thousands of times more than a humanbeing.But apart from all these advantages dogs can a cause a lot of damage to humanbeings.Dogs which are left on the road without there owners causes a lot of damage to the pedestrians.During night times it becomes very difficult for people to walk on the road as sometimes the dogs are left untied.So people should take care of dogs and should not left them untied.
