I hop out of the truck and start to thank her and apologize.... she starts screaming at me, yelling, "ARE THESE YOUR DOGS!?! THEY ATTACKED MY DAUGHTER!!!"
I said, "Attacked? There's no way my dogs attacked anyone... they would never...." Then she said, "well they scared her"
Then the dad comes out yelling at me... threatening to call the police...
I snap!! I go blackout angry on him..... understanding the implications of an accusation of a dog attacking a little girl and knowing this didn't happen... I went off on this guy... it's the closest I've come to smashing someone in the mouth in 15 years... I told him to call whoever he wants, started cussing him up and down.... All the while, I was gathering up the dogs and throwing them in my backseat.... he called the police and i heard him say his daughter had just been attacked by dogs!!!
Long story short... I drove off and the police never came.... I live a block and a half from this turdbucket and his house is on our regular walking route.... don't threaten a man's family! Yes!! My dogs are part of my Family!! I'm just real happy he never came within arms reach....lol
So lets see, you have four dogs that are evidently totally out of your control.

They all go running into someone elses yard and at the very least go running up to and maybe jump on a little girl!

And now YOU are angry at the parent of the girl!!!!!! HMMMMM!

Somehoe this story thing seems like a tale from Bizzarro World!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6mo GSD - absolutely possible with a knowledgable trainer!


How would an 8 week old puppy be free enough to go running down the road? Should be able to catch at least that little puppy, I should think, if one knew that they had escaped, maybe?

And lhasa apsos hve been known to be aggressive biters sometimes, and to a child could be dangerous!

How would you have felt if he had just smacked the &^&^ out of your dogs! I might have if I saw 4 dogs (no matter what size except for the baby puppy) come charging into my yard where my son was playing!

Or better yet, our GSD would have absolutely attacked all four of your dogs - probably killed all of them if he thought that our son (her baby!) was threatened.


maybe a little training and more attention would help.

the dogs made a run for it.... with four dogs already a block away before you could blink,, I grabbed my truck keys and took off after them. They were right around the corner in a yard with a lady standing there...fyi, my four dogs are two lhasa apsos, a six month old GSD and a two month old Goldendoodle...not an aggressive bone in any of them.....

-------- four dogs bolting , running as a pack , sure don't seem to have any connection to you , just a pack of dogs .
they didn't just exit the yard and hang around investigating the other side , and I am sure that you yelled and tried them to come back - but they blew you off and ran for the next county, ran so fast that a blink of an eye later they were far enough to need the truck , probably with no thought of stop running .
You are lucky you got off as freely as you did . The dogs could have been hit by a car , rushed by an aggressive dog, met with a dog on that property , shot . At least the guy called authorities instead of taking things in to his own hands.

Beyond all that this you are missing out on a good relationship with the dogs. The pets have pets . You provide , feed and clean .
Want to see how much more rewarding it can get . Then at least take the two youngest additions and start giving them time away from the "pack" . Develop one on one connection. TRAIN them .

Picture this:

You are not a dog person. You have an inbuilt weariness due to lack of understanding. Your daughter is playing in the front garden when suddenly a group of four dogs that you don't know anything about, in that spilt second they could be strays come bounding over barking and jumping excitedly. You don't know dogs, for all you know the barks and jumping could be outright aggression. they descend on your daughter and in that split second your life flashes before your eyes, you can see her getting ripped apart, her beautiful face scarred for life....then suddenly the dogs all stop and don't touch her.

How do you feel in that situation? Suddenly relieved enough to instantly laugh it off, maybe grab a tea towel and start a game of tug? OR Scared, angry, upset, mad? Mad enough to try and convey how you felt when they came running over? For all they knew your dogs were aggressive and looking for blood. They scared them witless and it is your fault.

They thought for a few seconds that your dogs were attacking and to convey how scary that was they have to describe the dogs coming as an attack.

I'm sorry but I don't think you come out of this story well. If you are chasing your dogs around the neighbourhood in the car there is a problem. These poor people did nothing to invite this trouble, they first got scared to death by the dogs then shouted an sworn at in front of their daughter by you.

To the OP... Take a deep breath and relax..

Thankfully no one was injured.. Take it as a lesson learned, move forward and do the best you can to prevent it from ever happening again..
