Shouldn't have happened in the first place. Period.

Heroic? or just plain negligent?

Personally, and although I can appreciate what this woman went through in those moments...well, I'll just leave it at that for now...

I wouldn't say heroic or negligent really... I honestly just see an accident. Should he may have bene paying more attention? Yes. If she intentionally dropped the lead then that might lead more toward negligence, but poor dog!!!!

OMG!! I don't "know" that I would not have made the same mistake. But certainly something I am well aware of now!

Thanks for posting!

I wouldn't call it heroic, I call it panic. Mistakes happen, looks like she really injured her hand, hope the dog was OK.

It's easy to think "it wont happen to me" and feel comfortable putting blame on people.

Hindsight being 20/20 and all.

I highly doubt if she did something like that on purpose should would have acted that way.

Oh man, I think the dog had a pinch on too, did anyone else notice? I think she pulled the links apart to release the dog. I bet her heart was in her throat. Dog appeared to be okay. Can't judge that personally, looked like a terrible accident.

Until a couple of weeks ago, I had never ever been in an elevator with any of my dogs. Last year my daughter moved to a different apartment complex one with an elevator. We usually take the stairs but as I was socializing the puppy I wanted to see what he would do. After watching that video, we will use the stairs next time. Forget socializing to an elevator!

Accident if she thought the leash was in her hand and negligent if she had a leash on the dog and dropped it on purpose because the dog was so well trained that nothing bad could happen. Personally, when I am with my dog I always know when the leash is in my hand and when it is not.

Either way, how awful for them both, I am wondering if maybe dog also bite her due to panic. You can't really see that part. My last gsd bite me when she got caught in garden fence because was freaking out so bad. That was the only time she ever bite me or anyone else.
