A dog attacking me and my little guys. Out for our usual morning walk but this morning as it was cold I decided to put their winter jackets on. Half way back from our walk there was a young man walking his dog (on a lead) he was walking the opposite direction he unclipped its lead and you can guessed what happened next, his dog saw us and ran full belt at us growling and snarling chap ran after him waving the lead and shouting for him to come back no chance. I pulled the lads behind me and tried to make myself appear a bit bigger but the dog just knocked me over and got max, I probably did the wrong thing but in a moment of panic I grabbed the dog by the collar and twisted it and pulled him off max. The man came running over and did apologise now by this time his dog is still trying to get to Max Ive still got my hand in its collar and hes just standing there instead of putting his dog on a lead. I am so pleased Max had his winter coat on I dread to think what could have happened. The man clipped the lead on his dog proceeded to hit his dog for not coming back then told me I thought I would give him one more chance to come back to me but it didnt work Then he informed me my other dog is git vicious like but he always comes back!!! I told him that perhaps he needs to some recall work on his dog or keep it on a long lead and as he walked away he shouted dont f******g tell me how to look after my f*****g dog. Walked through his front gate slammed the gate and let the dog loose so it jumped up at us as we walked passed forgot to add it was a staffie!!! Off to get a good stout stick or something!
