There is a very nice family who live somewhere near me and who own a stunning DDB (Dogue de Bordeaux). Lovely boy - fab with people BUT not good with other dogs... I first met this dog when I saw him tied up outside local shops and I couldn't resist approaching; I ended up sitting on the pavement with him enjoying a lovely hug Lately they've started bringing him to our local park and they are very responsible and keep him on the lead the entire time. Because I already knew the dog slightly I always keep a look out and ensure Dex is on lead the second I see them. But... now they have started leaving the dog tied up just outside the park playground; This is quite close by to the park cafe where the dogs' water bowls are kept. It is also at the top of a field in which many dogs love running and playing together - 99% of them are off lead. The other day one of Dex's mates, a lovely but very boisterous Lab x Staffie was just about to go zooming over to the DDB but I warned the owner. I fear it's only a matter of time before one or more dogs decide to investigate this newcomer - I really feel for the dog, alone for ages outside the kids' playground. Now, I totally appreciate that none of us should allow our dogs to approach the DDB *but* I think it's inevitable, given that there is nothing warning that the DDB is not good with other dogs. He's not muzzled, there is nobody with him, he simply sits or stands there very quietly... However, when Dex's friend was staring at him the other day, and the DDB was staring back, it was like High Noon........ Would you be a bit uneasy?
