You need to report him and the dog. Imagine if it had been a child that this dog had attacked! It will attack again. Sounds like it has before judging by the owners response!

I'm sorry that you have had the misfortune of being attacked by several dogs. People are to blame for dogs poor behavior . Not the dogs! Lack of training and just plain stupidy makes for a poorly behaved dog.

I'm with #32 on this one, I've had dogs for almost twenty years and not once have I had an issue where they fought with other dogs or attacked people, maybe it's just because I have lazy basset hounds but I know that with training, love and attention from people, dogs will generally show the affection they are given.

I with #32 on that one. I have a boxer-pointer mix and he is the sweetest dog ever. When I take him on walks or to a dog park, I never had a issue with him being aggressive. Honestly I think he likes going to the parks just to see the people. Everyone that walks by has pet him it he start whimpering and pulls out his sad eyes. The only problem is that he smiles a lot and people thinks he is barring his teeth. So I have to tell them that is not the case, that he is smiling. You can tell because h

Yeah my aunt had this blind dog with no legs and no teeth that was in a wheelchair and I always thought it was going to attack me, dogs are really shifty.

53# Go ahead and personify your dog as a human, but dogs do not 'smile', nor is that behavior showed with the teeth anyways. This has been Dogs: 101. Stay tuned for the next episode tomorrow.

Hey 64- let him describe it however he wants. Sometimes, it truly looks like the dog is smiling. My Maltese always smiles at my family :)

I would file a lawsuit for the owner- not the dogs fault that he doesn't know better. You wouldn't blame a small (I mean toddler aged) child for his inappropriate actions would you? No you'd blame the parents from not properly teaching their child. Dogs are the same. They only know instinct- its up to the owner to show them right from wrong.

#64 My mom had a dog that she raised from birth. She had to bottle feed it because the mom died. She used to always smile at it when she was bottle feeding. As it grew up, it tried to mimic that smile. It had never bitten anyone, growled at anyone, or gotten into fights with any other dog. But when you would walk up to it and greet it, it would lift its upper lip trying to smile. So yes, dogs can and have been known to smile. On top of the fact that dogs have approximately 100 different facial e

#81 Couple of things: Mimicry does not translate to behavior signs, and the fact of the matter is, without a mother to copy and learn from, the poor dog used the human instead. (Stating the obvious, I know.) There is also no way to know what the dog is trying to express while copying the smile. Normal behavior in pretty much every other circumstance in dogs dictates the barring of teeth to be a sign of hostility or nervousness. It can also stand as a warning as well. It is not a way to express

Well #83 I posted a video of my dog smiling. It's titled "Ezio Smiling." since you know everything about dog behavior (it's obvious you must have copied it from Wikipedia) can you explain his behavior. Some dogs do smile to show signs of affection. If you don't believe me then ask you local veterinarian. Oh wait! You don't need to ask. You know everything about animals. Duh!

98- i wouldnt say my case was an exception. But you are right in saying my case doesnt happen very often. But the dogs sensed my fear and obviously as people say, they were curious and when I wasnt very accepting they would attack. Im not saying that dogs are evil, im just saying that no dog is perfect they still have a certain element of danger.

27, I completely agree. I lost a good chunk of my lower left calf, couldn't be stitched, I had to get it packed with 1/4" gauze strip for four weeks daily. The lawsuit's still pending.

1. Your puns are bad and you should feel bad. 2. Your profile picture uses troll-face in the most inappropriate/incorrect way possible.

I wouldn't want my dog on a lease. You have to return it later on or pay extra to keep it. Damn doggie dealers. This is why you buy, people.

Agree. This exact thing happened to my dad while running. Luckily the dog owners took responsibility and payed for his stitches. As they should. You don't have to sue, but If they are denying any responsibility you should file a police report.

A police report and a civil lawsuit against the owner. I know a lot of folks frown on lawsuits, but some acts truly call for them. This is one of them.

What's that Lassie? There's a scary looking man who looks like a serial rapist in jogger shorts? GO GIT EM' BOY!
