This past weekend I had an encounter with an unleashed dog. He clamped on my forearm 3 times before the owner got him away from me. This dog owner was walking with 3 other adults and 3 other dogs (total of 4 dogs). The other 2 dogs were off leash as well. I was walking with my dog who was leashed. The owner of the dog who rushed me did nothing when I told him to get his dog away from me. He didn't believe when I said the dog bite me. I was terrified. I don't know why the dog targeted me over my dog but he probably picked up on my fear and reacted accordingly. Thankfully, my dog stayed quiet while all this took place.

As upset as I am that a dog would do that (clamp on a human), I am more upset that 3 adults watched and did nothing while it was happening. Other than the man saying a few words to me, the others said nothing. They just looked at me when I asked them then begged them to get the dog away from me. I feel for that little girl. I KNOW how terrified she must have been. There is nothing anybody can say that justifies what happened to that child. I don't care how well you think you've trained your dog, you keep him leashed when around others. A dog is just that. A dog.
