Keep your animals on leashes!

Seriously!!

Yesterday as I was walking Lexi to meet up with a friend I hear from accross the street someone calling their dog, twice. His tone sounded a little frantic so I looked over and noticed a medium sized dog heading my way from accross the street, likely coming over to see Lexi...the poor thing didn't make it a even a few feet onto the road before getting hit...

I don't want to EVER see OR hear that again...I didn't know what to do!! I wanted to slap the **** out of the owner...

The driver stopped and was slow to get out of his car. I stayed on the opposite side of the road and watched the dog owner pick up his dog carefully off the road and onto the grass. The driver finally came out and checked the situation, went to his trunk to get something and that's when I decided to leave...everything seemed under control, I would have stayed had the driver not stopped.
The dog wasn't moving or making noise that I noticed, it didn't look like it was run over, but it certainly took a good thump from his front bumper and must have been thrown away from the wheels or went under the car....I looked away when I heard the thump and yelp...I doubt the car was going any faster than 30 or 40km/h. I wasn't sure what type of dog it was...it was dark out. It was roughly the size of a bulldog though.

Should I have stayed at the scene? I wasn't sure what to do because I had Lexi with me...

I've never witnessed that before and I hope I never have to again...

I have witnessed far too many accidents such as this, accidents that could have been prevented if only the owner of the animal had used what little sense they have and kept their dogs on the leash.

Should you have stayed, that depends on how strong a person you are. It is never easy to be a part of something like this, what do you say, what can you do.
One can only hope the dog didnt suffer that the yelp was simply a reflex that it felt no pain. In a kind world the dog would simply be stunned, but unfortunately just because it didnt go under the wheels doesnt mean it wasnt seriously injured/killed.

Sorry you had to see it/be part of it. But your first responsibility is Lexi and this is what you have to think on. so staying wasn't an option.

A dog got hit in front of our house last week. It was dark and kind of rainy and my hubby was in the front room and heard a loud noise and then screaming from something (the dog). I was in the other room and didn't hear it and the TV was on so he thought it was the TV and didn't think about it, but turns out it was a German Shepherd in the road that someone hit, and the driver just took off but another car pulled up and scooped up the dog and left with it. It was 2 dogs walking unleashed and alone in the road together. So weird.

I wish I would've known or I would've ran out there to see what I could've done to help, but by the time hubby figured out what was going on and told me, they were already gone. Very sad

It's TORONTO. I see far too many dogs off leash on the sidewalks. Out in the countryside it's a bit safer, but still, I wouldn't trust my dog to suppress the instinct to investigate things or chase an animal.

One day I was walking D/T on a busy sidewalk, I heard a woman bellow a dogs name, and here come a Newfie shepherd mix galloping towards us. I know chase is not fond of rushing dogs all up in his face, so I stood between him and the dog. The woman shouted 'don't worry, he is friendly!' As the dog skidded to a halt I had a bully stick and whacked the side of his muzzle with it.

Keep your dog on a leash.

End rant.

It's my biggest bugbear !! Irresponsible dog owners walking their oh so well behaved dogs off the lead near a road !!!

The amount of people in Scotland who do this is unbelievable, it's impossible for me to try to walk my reactive dog down the road for fear of meeting one of these dogs and it deciding to make a bee line for us ...😡
Plus it is illegal in the UK to walk a dog without a lead on or near public roads or highways.

Although irresponsible owners are people who I wish to yell common sense into them, I always get angry when someone's dog is off leash, jumps on me (I remember it was a Newfoundland) and my obvious reaction is to push him off. That dog was taller compared to me, it took place outside a public mall and dogs were supposed to be on leash at all times (Signs were everywhere), yet the woman got mad at me for "smacking" her dog off of me. Yeah right... I pushed him off and she shouldn't have even had her dog off leash in the first place if it was going to behave like that. I personally don't think I had any fault there, the owner should take responsibility.

As for your incident, I'm sorry to hear about that. I can imagine the pain since I've seen many, many of those accidents. It's horrible and frustrating because it wouldn't have happened if the owner was responsible...

I'm sorry you had to see something so sad and tragic!

I have had countless encounters with off-leash dogs with stupid owners. The same fat ugly lab keeps ruining our tracking at a local park. GRR.

There's some great joke material in that scene, but I don't want to offend our predominantly female DT members!

When I was a kid growing up we played football and baseball in the front yards and sometimes on the street. Way back then a lot of neighborhood dogs just ran loose around with us. One of our favorite neighborhood dogs (rough collie) got run over under a car's tires right in front of us! It was a sad day for all and made an indelible impression on me. It was the first violent death I had witnessed, so I always remember it...

There are still a few pet owners in my current neighborhood who let their dogs roam around off leash in front yards. I usually remind them (politely) about dangers of off leash animals, remind them of ordinances and how discourteous and dangerous it is to dog walkers passing by.

You have my sympathy, Dave. I was involved in a similar incident last summer...

My neighbors' 10-year-old daughter (who really should have known better) had their 7-month-old puppy outside without a leash. From what I gather, they were "playing tag" in the front yard; I could hear the laughter and barking from my computer room, but I didn't pay much attention until I heard a loud, metallic thump and my neighbor's kid screaming.

My boyfriend (who was working from home at the time) and I rushed outside only to find the dog laying in the road with blood pooling around his head, and my neighbor's daughter bawling in the driveway (she ran inside before I could say anything). Her parents came out shortly thereafter. Dad removed the body and my boyfriend and I helped hose off the street so none of the other kids in the neighborhood had to see the mess.

It was a horrible, horrible experience. The dad's only comment was "We spent a lot of money rescuing this poor guy, just to kill him ourselves." It made me cry.

The only consolation is that the puppy had died (almost?) instantaneously when struck. He was already gone when we arrived on the scene not a minute later.

It's hard to believe that some people don't think about keeping their animal protected.

I understand that mistakes happen sometimes, but common sense can prevent a lot of it.

I saw the guy up the roads doberman get hit by a car when i was a kid, he trashed the front of the car when it hit him, he got up and ran home. He lived for years after that and as far as I know had no vet attention.

There is one woman that walks a dog reactive GSD around here it came piling into me, tilly and Becca. didn't bother the pigs but I kicked right off at her, said her dog could bolt across the road etc. She said 'No she won't run on the road'
I said 'It could'
'No it wouldnt'
So then I said you're really lucky I wasn't walking Bob the psycho Bull terrier, if that had happened your dog would be dead now and walked off in a strop.

Next time I saw her she had it on a lead, but still one of those stupid extendible jobbies.

It sucks you saw that dude.

Speaking from the other person's view, we were scared off of offleash without a fence with one of our GSDs. Our yard didn't have a fence for the longest time because the girls respected the boundry... except the black puppy, of course! Long story short after about 10 minutes of sprinting after this dog she gets it into her head to cross the highway. Car skidded to a stop maaaaaybe 4 or 5 inches away from her, startled her enough that I was able to catch her and clip on the leash. I don't think I'll ever forget the scene that played in my mind the second before the car stopped, or that I'll ever forget the feeling of panic my frantic scream of "QUEENIE!!!" called to mind. We built a fence immediately after that and never trusted the dogs offleash without a fence to contain them again.

Teach your dogs not to doordash either! Similar scene, Baby darted out of the door last minute and went across the road. They called her back and as she was trotting back the car appeared out of nowhere. Hit her, rolled over her with front wheels, back wheels. Guy claims he thought he was still on her (coughdoubtitcough), backed over her with back wheels, front wheels. Worst thing about it was that my nephew witnessed it. Luckily she was mostly alright... crunched most of her ear into the gravel so she's "half-cropped" now, some lasting scars on the top of her head and along her side/shoulders, but no serious damage to her bones. Her fur never came back in right and she went grey-faced immidaitely afterwards.

That would require common sense and there is a definite lack of it in the general population.

I have always worked on Lexi not darting out the front door when we go for walks, also had to do the same for the elevator doors because often people will be startled if she exits first trying to pull me along. It's a non issue now unless there is a random dog on the other side.
