Animal control said dogs are considered personal property, so they are treated like damage to a car. She did say they cannot sue for trauma to the dog because of this... I just don't know if the owner can sue for his own trauma from experiencing the scary attack :/

1) Put up a fence so this doesn't happen again. It's all about protecting your dog.
2) Get the trainer on board working with ways to train against attacking. Yes, this can be done. Highly trained sport dogs who hate other dogs compete all the time and learn to ignore other dogs. Yours can too.
3) Call a lawyer. Consults are typically free
4) Get documentation from the AC officer who dismissed this as an accident.
5) Document all efforts to contact the person to pay for vet bills.

Just a side note..... Don't settle anything without a written settlement agreement. You may pay vet bills, and think it's over, then get slapped with a suit for further damages. I'd suggest you take the attorney up on his offer, and maybe draft the offer to pay for damages. Have it delivered to his residence. He already showed that he doesn't want to correspond, so let him be.
Being proactive, may help you down the road.

First off - the neighbor does not even OWN the dog!!!! As everyone says, many many dogs wash out of training for seeing eye/service dog....have seen several people raise them, and most of them HAVE washed out...so until the dog finishes service training, it has only the value of a puppy of that breed...

That is a super offer of Trotter to help you!!! Kudos!!!

I agree keep records of everything. You did more than the persons dog that attacked my dog. My boy got attacked by a bullmastiff/pitt mix.It was a bad attack he latched on to the side of my dogs face and we couldn't get him to let go for at least 15 minutes then I was able to run back to my apartment and get to my door, but before opening it the dog came flying around the corner again and latched on again it was a horrible attack. I never got an apology, never asked if my dog was okay or anything. They were lucky I am a nice person. She did rush her dog to a vet even though he didn't have a scratch on him she was afraid her husband would be mad if she didn't take him. I just couldn't believe I never got an apology and even after the attack I went to then asked if their dog was okay and told them where I would walk my dog that way they could avoid that area until I moved, but they didn't even do that they walked their dog where I asked them not to and that was the only thing I asked of them. My dog couldnt relax after that and that attack did change him. That was my point of telling you my story is that attack changed my dog around other dogs and he was scared to death and was super aggressive to any dog he saw big or small. He is still a little iffy sometimes, but I have finally been able to get comfortable.

You need to be more careful with your dog. He could really mess up another dog mentally or physically. Or your dog could go after the wrong dog. You really need to get a special trainer and take precautions.

I would also watch your dog, so nothing bad happens. You never know what someone will do to get even or for revenge.
