I'm not sure if you could have gotten his personal information or not, but would it be worth reporting to the police? I ask because the guy down the road has a terrier that bites & he's been much better about minding his dog & keeping him close since someone reported a dog bite.
(I know bylaws are different in different places, not sure if having had a report on his dog, the obnoxious owner might be more careful in future.)
I did make sure to get his information, as well as contact info from a couple witnesses. Crossed my t's and dotted my i's.
I got his information from someone else, I might add, as he declined to give it.
I spent some time debating reporting this, as the dog would have been yet one more statistic of a bully on bite report and in quarantine. And it wasn't her fault and she isn't "vicious," just needs management and proper training.
Since my injuries are minor, and the skin was not even broken on Obe, I opted to let it go, for now.
A part of me wonders if I'm doing the dog a service or a disservice. I would have liked to think a report and having to deal with quarantine and the authorities would make effer wise up and do better with the blue girl, but...yeah, most likely not.
She would have had to do her quarantine at the AC/shelter George and Whisper came from, and it's rampant with disease and mismanagement, bully breeds are auto-euth'd, not sure if he would have surrendered her or not--if so, she'd a been killed.
