Wow, sorry to hear this Rosa. I don't have any advice, just good wishes.
what she said. except I'd use more foul words for the idiot and her little dogs.Originally Posted By: DianaMYour neighbor is a grade A jackass.
Sounds like your neighbor is spreading libel/slander. Sue or not, but somebody here broke the leash law AND the common sense law. Do lots of training with your dog in the front yard so the whole neighborhood can see how nicely trained your dog is, enlist young relatives to help (to dispel the "your kids could be next" idiocy), and do everything you can to make your dog a model citizen. That will make your neighbor look like the village idiot.
Be sure to cruise your yard regularly for any signs of poisoned food. I would not discount this possibility. Do not ever let your dog out alone and unsupervised. I'm sorry this happened, but your dog was defending its turf and your neighbor was (is) a fool. The dogs always lose the most, though.
You are taking appropriate actions. This is all you can possibly do. The only thing I would add would be to get your dogs CGC's and any other temperament test available as documentation of their lack of aggression.Originally Posted By: shilohsmom
I get paid on Friday and on Saturday a friend is going to install a SECOND fence on my property-one that will keep my dogs far from the entire property line. I live in constant fear right now that they will try to hurt them or god knows what. Don't worry I am with my babies and I mean RIGHT WITH THEM at all times when we go outside. I just can't explain the emontial toll this is taking on me. When I am not there they are inside my house.
I'm trying to find a surviellance (video) system I can afford and put outside my home.
