GatorBytes, you know you have the law on your side here. With our DOLA on the books in ON, this dog is in serious trouble. For the dog to target Gator like that, also injuring you, is unacceptable.

I am miffed by a rescue who skews a breed in order to adopt it out to a province it is banned.

The owners say they have had this dog for 6 months. It is 3-5yrs. old..."troubled" as they put it...a "runner" as they put it.

They were high (just finished a joint - 10am) when I showed at their door to discuss compensation for my injuries and Gators.

I said the brace on my hand is $25, my meds are $25....the woman said, oh, we can help you with that...Then I said if I cannot work this weekend I am out this ___amount of $$$
He pipes up and says...oh well I don't that kind of money!

He observed the dog FROM HIS CAR and determined it healthy
First of all, sorry this happened to you and Gator. Second, I hope you and Gator a speedy recovery. Third, heck yeh you should take every necessary step forward until they are all exhausted!

OK, I hope I read your current post wrong. But did they actually leave this dog on it's premises? If they did, big mistake. Big mistake. This dog ran three blocks to attack you. This dog should be confiscated immediately. It could have easily been a young child instead of you. If this is the case, I would be living on the phone with the authorities trying to get this dog picked up.

Not dog to dog - it'll be a muzzle order. Which will not protect when the stoners greet friends and dog books it out the door

Liability of owner, 2(1):
The owner of a dog is liable for damages resulting from a bite or attack by the dog on another person or domestic animal
Offences, 18(3):
If a person is convicted of an offence under this Act, the court making the conviction may, in addition to any other penalty, order the person convicted to make compensation or restitution in relation to the offence

https://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/st...es_90d16_e.htm

The owner will have to find that kind of money. Maybe they should have thought of that before their dog was allowed access to the front door?

Wow, just wow. You do realize what your dealing with? I wouldn't confront them any further. As has been suggested, get a good lawyer and own everything they have and will or would have had. I would also let the authorities know what they are dealing with and they better grab that dog before it disappears and reappears somewhere else.

This. You have the law and yes this dog will be in trouble but if its casually goes away this dog could be put in a home and do it again.

Some rescues are skewed.

Yes - Public Health left the dog with the owners (after speaking with the woman who said she would fax them the info they got from the rescue in montreal) and "observing" the dog, (brought out to the street on a chain), whilst secure in his car away from any threat...he deemed the dog healthy, not rabid and will return in 10 days.

Not 3 blocks, just one good size block (a square), about a 10 min walk around
