We had two dogs, a Rough Collie, and a Pomeranian. Whenever friends or family asked laughingly which dog they had to "BEWARE" of, I always said the Pom. It was a joke, cuz neither one of the dogs would have done more than bark.Originally Posted By: MoonfireMy husband is a Toronto Police Officer and told me at least here in Ontario if you have a sign "Beware of Dog" and your dog bites someone you can be charged because you know you dog is agressive. If you don't have a sign, then you don't get charged.zyp said:
Now I have a dog that I truly believe would defend me if the need arose, and I have to worry about whether putting a sign up will make me more liable? Aside from calling the cops, how can I find out what kind of area I live in?
It's crazy that our dogs can't even defend us without threat of being put to sleep.
