    The dogs are not secured in the garden and do frequently roam the street. Hence the Rotttie being "chained"

    At first I thought that it was a bit unfair on the other residents, but then I read the comments, some of which had been made by them. If you read those comments, it's clear there are serious problems here that need dealing with. So now maybe something will be done, maybe getting the dogs caring homes with responsible owners is the best option.
    I don't think Royal mail had any choice.

    Why punish the whol street just because one one house :confused: Give the house concerned a warning that if they do not control the situation their post will have to be picked up from the sorting office. Can understand how posties must suffer with dogs harrassing them daily but I don't think punishing people who are not concerned will help matters. Edited can understand how the situation is not that simple after reading the further comments.

    Good on the royal mail, safety in the work place and after all the street is the posties work place. They have the right to take any mail back if a dog is seen to be a danger like if the postie has to go through the gate and the dog is out or if a dog snatches at the letter box if a postie feel any sort of danger they can take the mail back and the person has to go and collect it from the office.

    Tbh the stupid woman shouldn't have to tell her kids up to age 11 to keep the dog indoors. Why do they keep letting him out if he's territorial? I wouldn't go near a snarling JRT - there was a boy down the road whose dog stopped me playing out when I was little, for about 5 years because he made her that way.

    There was also a woman around the corner from us whose Cav used to magically escape around the same time very day :rolleyes: he wasn't vicious but it was an accident waiting to happen on our street...why can't people just keep their dogs in? It's not hard...:nono:

    I don't blame Royal Mail at all for refusing to deliver the post to the street. The comments at the bottom tell a better story than the actual reported story and the paper got the location wrong. Saltash is in Cornwall not Plymouth :rolleyes:

    Think this family will have more than 3 dogs to worry about now that its in the paper.

    Why was the door being opened anyway to get post? Thats what letterboxes are for, so really the dog shouldn't even have a chance to get out!
