Please keep those dogs safe. If they can't be out when people are coming and going then put them in the house. I would hate to see anything happen to any of them

I scanned your post and then read some responses and then went back and read it again because, um, what kind of weirdos come unglued about llasas, a Doodle puppy and a GSD pup? Four GSDs, rotties, Dobies come running into my yard, yeah, I'm going to be startled. But, no offense, were talking two little mops and the goofiest dog on the planet (Doodle) as 3/4s of this scary dog pack?

I'd be more scared of a pack of cats.

Still, yeah, be careful. You have crazy neighbors. Gosh, where I grew up nobody ever called anybody about a neighbors dog unless there was dead livestock or blood going on.

If you have your hands full with a wheel barrow, put your dogs away first. The bigger ones are not old enough to be reliable 100% of the time, and I don't know about the little ones.

I know you're angry with their response, but it really is entirely your fault. Your dogs got out, and they could have been killed or worse. Little dogs can bite. And 6 month old GSDs seem pretty big to people. If you anger people, your dogs may suffer from what they may say about them or do. I don't thing slinging F-bombs would be how I would've handled it. Remember that that guy felt his family threatened as well.

If you have 4 dogs running at large do you get 4 tickets?

Some children are terrified of dogs. I think the situation escalated when you heard attacked, and that was demoted to scared. Then you were furious because the two are different. They are not that different though, considering the dogs were in their yard and perfectly capable of attacking.

Weren't you just posting less than a month ago about your fence blowing down and animal control picking up at least some of your dogs?

Control your dogs, man. You should be cussing yourself out, not your neighbors who have the right to not have strange dogs OF ANY TEMPERAMENT, AGE OR BREED/MIX run up on them.

You are the human. It is your job to not let this happen. I don't mean to sound harsh here, but you need to step up your game. Take responsibility. If you can't control the dogs, train them. If you don't have the time or the money to train them ALL, even the Lhasas, you shouldn't have them.

If someone can (if it happens or not) can hang your dog for running at them. I am very careful with my dogs and some I have to take out daily somewhere else to run (a field I go to) because I know how people are. Stay safe, you and your dogs

Although I wouldn't be cursing at my neighbors and I would have handled this differently, I'd also feel extremely angry too if they used the word 'attacked' and lied to the police about my dogs attacking their daughter when they just scared her. 'Attacked' is not at all synonymous with 'scared'. They don't understand that using that word can be a death sentence to a dog, or in this case 2 dogs and 2 puppies.

And who calls the police on someone if their dogs didn't cause injury and they have already picked up their dogs and left in the span of a few minutes? What is the point of that? They are wasting the police's time.

This.
Be glad you didn't (yet) get another $300-400 ticket.
If it was me and some guy was cussing me out in my yard because HIS dogs came running into it and knocked my kid down (or bit the child, you don't know if you didn't examine her/him), there'd be freaking **** to pay.

I understand your anger at people lying about what happened. It's a pet peeve of mine! I probably also would have called them out on that... and been angry. However... keep in mind that your dogs have recently been picked up. You have GOT to be extra careful from now on! If you still don't have a secure fence, you need to get one. If you have to open the gate for any reason, your dogs need to be inside. If they lie to the police, the police will most likely take their word over yours because you already had an infraction and there was a GSD involved. Age doesn't matter. The GSD is going to take the hit every time... even if it did nothing wrong. It's just a fact of life.

Let me say some people can be very ugly, and I have never had a run in with the law over my dogs, but I do have a crappy neighbor. My neighbors lab/bull mix (her boyfriends dog) was trying to take our cat down one day when me and my daughter were pulling out, I told my daughter to get the cat before their dog caught it then his dog went after my daughter. For over six months now, three times a week this man stands over there and yells and says bad things to me (I ignore him). Last week I had it and got my husband.
