Hi she is doing great. Wound seems to be healing nicely, she has complete her antibiotics and no longer needs pain killers, her appetite is good, and so far she seems her usual happy self around other dogs (neither aggressive or timid). At the moment she does still have a lump under the skin near the wound but this seems to be getting smaller every day - so I'm keeping my eye on it.

Speaking with people locally it seems that dogs attacking dogs is way too common and this very quick attack was mild compared to some who have had to stand by watching while people try for many minutes to seperate an attacking dog from their dog.

I believe each dog is individual, however 90% of the attacks people are telling me about involve a Staffordshire Bull Terrior with a high prey drive and desire to start a fight.

I actually know and play with some great staffy dogs but they do get a bad reputation and negative coverage.

She is such a beautiful girl! Yes the majority of dog attacks in our area are pit bull type dogs. We do have a dangerous dog listing in our state and now if your dog bites maims or kills a human or another pet they are placed on the dangerous dog listing and the homeowner or individual must have 100,000 in liability coverage and maintain a well fenced enclosure and the dog must be muzzled at all times while in public. I think this is a good law but unfortunately the dog has to attack first and someone has to suffer injury or lose a pet. I have seen Akitas and Great Danes on this list in our area as well as Huskies and a few German Shepherds as well. A lot of my negative encounters have been with smaller dogs I guess their owners don't view them as a hazard but they are last week a smaller dog came after us and I injured my already bad knee trying to hold my dogs back my male was not willing to allow this dog to attack us and was trying to protect us. I have never had one of my dogs escape my property or leave my control I think a lot of this is on the owners part a false belief their dog won't hurt anyone. I hate that your girl got hurt, she looks like a sweet and goodhearted soul and she obviously means the world to you. I hope that person is at least helping to pay for her Vet bills.

Hi. Yes I turned up at the owners house and wasn't leaving without full payment for the vet bills!

It's great that she's healing up well and doesn't appear to have been traumatized by this. I like to think that the owner having to pay for the attack financially will teach them to be more responsible with their dog in the future. You never know with people though...

Man she is a cutie! Glad all seems to be well!

And sigh yea Staffordshire Bull Terrior or derivitive thereof, as I tend to say. Now if he charged you and did not make a sound before?? Then he (I'm assuming??) Also qualifies as the before mentioned ... "Ambush Predator!" It's a "thing."

I know those exist, because a massive APBT came after my "Puppy" Stewie, my first APBT/Boxer mix!!! Wayy back in 2001! That was the first dog I ever faced down!! He came from slightly and did not make a sound!! But ... I heard the screen door slam open and people screaming??

I turned and saw him making a Bee line for my puppy, WTH?? This was wayyy before my walking stick thing! And the only thing I knew was he was not getting to my puppy!

I had to swing the leash and use my foot to scoop Stewie, behind me and face the dog down!! I really had no plan other that but I knew that dog was not getting to my puppy without getting past me!!!

But that was enough! The dog never saw me?? All he saw was puppy! He paused at this unexpected development and that gave the owners enough to scoop him up! That was my first intro to "loose dog's." "Most" dog's aren't looking to confront human's! Now a Rough LE K9 (and yeah, they are out there!) Good luck with that! Cuz you know attacking people uh, is there job!

But you can't just be on the lookout for the "usual" suspect's only! Lapso's for one can ham string your dog if he is on a leash and the dog is smart enough not to attack head on! And the only, Dog (under ideal conditions) that successfully got by me and manged to nip Rocky was a WL GSD!

But I "F'ed Up Bad" and lead us into an ambush! And uh in case folks don't know ... dog's can still see in the dark, human's ... not so much, who knew???

But LOL, in my lame defense it was not just a WL GSD, it was an EX Military Drug Detection dog from Mexico!! I think, I have all the details in my attack thread but that is the essences of why and how it happened.Trained dog's don't act like rough pet's! Just so folks know.

I think we have all had an experience with loose dogs. I had one encounter with my poodle when he was just a pup, maybe around 5 months. It was a small dog, kind pug size. The owner came out to get him but the dog kept running in circles and kept coming back after us. I really don't know what its intention was but my dog didn't approve and was scared and pulling on me while this little thing kept barking and moving in with the owner running circles around us. It was a sight. I am old, have bad ankles and knees so after we had a few experiences I find I am no longer walking as I was. I am just afraid of falling and know it wold be difficult to hold onto by now almost 60 lb dog with who knows what chasing after us. Its really a shame as I got this dog so I could walk thru the neighborhood and feel safe and comfortable. Now I don't. If it were one dog/one family it wouldn't be so bad but so many people think nothing of leaving the dog run loose on their front property and I don't care how well trained it may be it takes one time for something bad to happen. Oh and I just love that photo, she is gorgeous.

I hate that irresponsible owners have such an impact and can stop others from enjoying walks with their dogs. It's just selfish inconsiderate behaviour.

Agreed. Selfish, indeed.
I have an elderly neighbor who has stopped taking her walks by herself, (without a dog) on her OWN property due to off-leash dogs in the area approaching her. She can't take a fall. I go over & walk with her as often as I can but it is sad to see her lose that little bit of independence because of owners who don't keep their dogs leashed.

So glad your Gorgeous girl is on the mend.
