Default Speaking of little bully dogs

Check out this pug trying to pick a fight with a police k9 during a standoff in my neck of the woods yesterday! Crazy!

LOL, the Daily Mail also picked it up. In their article, they interviewed the pug's owner, who said that "the dog normally 'bolts' out of the front garden" Pug starts fight with police dog in middle of armed siege | Mail Online

Yeah, but now I'm feeling guilty for laughing. Thankfully the dog didn't get shot! Maybe we should link this video to the threads where our dogs are reacting on the leash, while they're being charged by roaming dogs? See, even a $XX,000 K9 with possibly hundreds of hours of training under its belt will also sometimes lunge under these circumstances, lol.

I hope the owner is fined I bet she thinks it's 'cute' that he 'bolts' out of the garden door and even cuter that he's getting in the middle of all of that. In the Pug's defense though, he doesn't know what's going on- he just sees another dog and is inclined to check it out and defend his territory. He has no conception of working dog or dog on duty.


eta- Blanketblack, I noticed that too and it made me feel a little better about my pups not always being 100%; and they're just pets

It's all fine and dandy until you can't cross the police tape

That would be my Mom's Maltese/Poodle that tries to attack my GSD.

If it had been a GSD or other stereotypically protection-type...... there would be tape to cross.

Honestly I don't see the humour at all; I seriously am annoyed at the owners. They are admitting the dog gets out often, they did admit they realized they were entirely in the wrong and that their dog could have caused serious harm to befall one or more of the police officers by being such a distraction. Hopefully this will be enough of a wakeup call for them to become responsible owners and ensure that the dog doesn't get out again. Maybe this will be a good thing and more owners that otherwise wouldn’t have thought of their actions will be taking notice and changing

The sad thing is as I sit here and think about it, what would have happened if the pug was shot. The uproar and outage over that 'harmless' little dog being shot by the big bad police would have gone viral, and honestly in that situation I personally would not have blamed the officers one bit if they used force to remove the distraction. Would I have been sad and angry, yes, but at the owners of the dog not the police. Especially once the truth that the dog was allowed to roam often was let out. What if the suspect had taken advantage of the distraction and shot an officer or more or the k9 while they were focused on that little dog rather than the armed person. What if the K9 had reacted before the officers could intervene and bit or killed the dog or the handler. The whole situation is downright dangerous and all because of a little dog and owners who didn't bother to contain it.

It's funny in a "How typical!" sense to me. Everywhere I've ever lived, there's been a tiny tyrant that's always running loose and couldn't recall to save its life. And it's sad that it happens, because they do lose their lives this way. People are often careless with their dogs.
