Any reason why a particular dog might be a target?
It's happened at least 3 times now that Rocco is targeted by dogs that don't bother the other dogs at the park.
A couple of months ago, a big GS mix (I think with wolf) was going after Rocco and snapping at him. Rocco tried to move away and the dog kept coming after him until the owner grabbed it. The dog didn't seem to do it to other dogs at the park.
Yesterday, Rocco was attacked by a Rottweiler. When the Rot growled at him Rocco tried to go away from him but the Rot went after him and pinned him down. Luckily the owner had him on a leash because Rocco couldn't get away from him and he was crying. I think the Rot hurt him but there were no puncture wounds (lots of saliva all over his head). He kept trying to go after Rocco even after the owner pulled him off. The Rot was growling at other dogs but not trying to "get" them and pinned them down.
Later, another dog when after Rocco and the owner had to grab it.
I don't understand why. Rocco is not even dominant. If anything, he'll coward away. All he does is sniff and then walk away. Why do dogs want to attack him?
