There was a small breed in a shopping cart at a Home Depot that jumped up and bit a lady in the face and bit part of her nose off. It's not a laughing matter just because it's a small dog, there's something seriously wrong with anyone who thinks that is funny.
I came home from grocery shopping at my condo and had my arms full and my neighbour's toy poodle ran over from about 50' away and bit my leg and drew blood through my jeans. That wasn't funny either.
I'm very sorry the OP was injured by that nasty little dog, glad the cops had your back.

Nice people can have a 'dangerous' dog while 'dangerous' people can have a nice dog.

Thanks Lee, we are both doing much better today.
Haha Lillie, if I'd been a bit more coordinated the treats may have landed on the chihuahua.
Thanks Shadowxx! I know I think he's handsome, but I'm a bit biassed.
Selzer, the police are going to (probably did by now) turn over their report to animal control. They said it'll start a file for that animal/owner. The idea is that should there be a future problem there will at least be a report of a previous incident even if a complaint wasn't filed. To be honest, when I was finally free to leave all I wanted to do was go get Cafall and myself checked out and go home. Never mind the fact I have zero desire to see that lady or her dog again. I do understand though what you're saying about the nice guys getting the short end of the stick.

I think that you, Kahrg4 did fine except for one thing. You should have made a formal complaint. With the witnesses that you were attacked before your dog made any aggressive move, I think she would be dead in the water trying to make you pay anything.
One could say, turn it around. If you had a chi, and there was this sable GSD behind you, and it was acting nutso to your dog, and its owner was just letting it move up on you. What would've happened? If it bit your shoe, what would have happened? If it would have rushed forward and bit you in the face, what would have happened. If your dog then attacked it, and it came away with a bite wound, and your dog hand bite wounds, what would have happened?
But that is not the main reason I think you should have made a formal complaint, and gone to the ER and presented them with a bill and sued them for your pain and suffering.
The reason, I think you should have pressed the issue was the attitude of that hag. I am sorry, but I will let so much pass it isn't funny, but if someone tries to put the blame on me, and just feels they have a free pass because their dog is tiny or old or green with orange polka dots, then you wanna see ugly?
That woman wanted her vet bills paid by you when HER dog bit you in the face BEFORE the fight??? That is insanity. She is insane. She is deluded and maybe it ought to have been you duty to help her become a little less deluded by a visit from Animal Control, little Foofoo stuck in quarantine, having to produce his paperwork, license, rabies, etc., a pretty fine, losing her home-owners insurance and needing to scramble for more.
That women told you EXACTLY what would have happened had the tables been turned and Your dog was the aggressor. Someone needs to take that hag to the bank.
Ah well. Perhaps, it wouldn't be worth it. But even the pain in the backside it would create going through the process would be ok, knowing that woman would be learning a thing or too.
The nicest people, seem to never get a pass. They offer to pay the vet bills, they apologize, they ask after the critter, and they don't get a pass. It only seems like the people that are really irritable get passes. I don't understand that. Is it human nature to go after someone when they apologize or otherwise make themselves vulnerable? Is it human nature to back down when someone acts aggressive and nasty?
It is her attitude that ought to be punished. Dangerous people have dangerous dogs. Her dog is dangerous, I wonder why.

|ShadowXx||Wow that sounds like a crazy and eventful visit to the pet store! I'm sorry for your night but at least you got a good story out of it, your GSD is beautiful by the way!|

Wow, sorry for you and Cafall going through that. I'm glad that Chi didn't rip your lip off! I knew someone that had their lip ripped half off by a Chihuahua and had to get it stitched back on.
I've encountered situations like that many times. Not so much with Chi's since there aren't many around here, but with Maltese and Shi Tzu types...little white fluffy things. I don't like to judge dogs on their breeds but I haven't met a single one of these that I liked. So many times out walking a pack of these barking slippers on leashes would snarl and grab onto my pant legs with their teeth. Luckily they didn't reach the skin. The owner never apologizes of course.
Some people just shouldn't own dogs.

|Lilie||I dunno. I don't think I would have been so nice. Hondo would have ignored the little dog, I have no doubt in that. But I think I would have been the ugly one. Once the little dog bit my shoe - I think I would have dropped my bag of treats on it....oops.|

Seriously - the lady with the Chi was WAY WAY out of line and I hope the police pay her a visit....otherwise she will just continue to delude herself....any dog - 4 pounds or 40 - that launches itself at a stranger's face should NOT be allowed to continue this behavior - or possibly exist! That is just plain crazy!!!! So glad that there was so much back up for you and your dog that saw this incident!
