Re: Would You Call Animal Control?
I wouldn't call animal control if it was the first time. The second time it had happened, yes I'd call.
We have a pair of pugs 2 blocks over. Now these are not german shepherds and there are only 2 of them.
The first time they charged my dogs, Luther was still alive so it had to to have been almost 4 years ago. Luther tossed one of them like a salad and the other one ran away. No owner around.
The second time they charged me, Morgan barked at them, they ran away. Woman owner was there, she didn't make any effort to correct or collect her dogs.
The third time was early last summer, I had the twins in the double wide stroller, James was walking on my right, Morgan on my left. The pugs charged us, James yelled at them, one of the grabbed him by the ankle. James kicked it and Morgan grabbed it. I screamed at the owner that he better come get his dogs.
He wasn't apologetic so I called animal control. I showed A/C the tear in my son's sock and said I wanted to file a complaint.
The FOURTH time those dogs charged me, the kids were in school and I had Morgan and Otto both with me. The pugs ran across the street to charge us, barking at us. Morgan let out a warning WOOF. They both stopped. The owner came to collect them and apologized to me. I gave him an earful that he needed to get a fence. Amazingly, I didn't swear!
