Angry Just venting, rescue Dobie attacking my dogs

Wow what a crap day. We walk our dogs every day. We have an almost 2 year old Dobie, a 10 plus year old male German Shepberd, and an a 11year old female, Dobie GDS mix. For the third time, our dogs where attacked by a rescue dobie. This is the current owners excuse. He's a rescue. When I suggested he put his dog on a leash, I was told it was his property, and he didn't need a leash on his dog. The dog has a shock collar on , so he wont chase the chickens. The owner continued to lie on social media,about how aggresive our dogs where. These people should not have a rescue that they cannot handle.
And yes our dogs where on leash, and just stood there, while their dog attacked our dogs,and we had permission to walk on the property. Called the police, but it wasn't a big deal to them. Anyone have a dog savey lawyer to contact, incase this gets bigger. Sorry, about the rant, just upset.
Rudies mom...

If your not on public property and the Dobie is on his property, there is nothing you can do. Just walk somewhere else.

Dealing with aggressive, off leash dogs is no fun, but I do have some questions.

My first question is: Why do you keep walking there if the dog has attacked more than once?

My second question is: What, exactly, do you mean by "attacked"? Did the dog just run up, barking and causing chaos? Of did the dog actually try to bite your dogs?

I have the same questions -

Sounds like you all need a new walking route The easiest way to deal with these situations is to not put yourself into them. Local police departments are notorious for doing nothing in these situations, so you really shouldn't count on them too much. I would just avoid that property as much as possible, and if not possible, try to create more distance between your dogs and their dog - i.e. walk on the other side of the road, don't stop and let their dog attack your dogs, just keep walking and ignore the other dog.

It's definitely not OK for his dog to attack yours, but like folks said--reality trumps rights. You don't want to risk your dogs becoming reactive while on leash. It sounds like the owner is a PITA and a bad pet owner, but that just means you have to be careful to avoid his dog.

That said, I understand your rant. My next door neighbor once called the ASPCA because my dog chased a fox into her yard....once. It took about 10 seconds before Katana came back to my call. The owner went through an involved spiel to me later...all in the same breath, she said the dog chased the fox, then she added that she had wounded it, then upped the ante and said that Katana had killed it. She still didn't get the response she wanted ("Oh, what a shame" in a polite sort of way from me), so then she said she HAD PICTURES!! (I was there; Katana didn't even come close to the speedy little thing.)

Anyway, I wish I had the timing to take pics of wildlife in my yard....just happen to have your camera nearby, be able to grab it, focus and snap a shot as the creature zooms past.

The pound folks came out rolling their eyes (I guess she calls a lot) and apologized for their visit...it was a follow up they had to do by policy.

Whenever I am walking my dogs in public or at park I carry this stun flashlight to ward off any aggressive, off leash dogs that approach:


Eva will hide behind me in those situations, but Spock will get out front and say "Bring it on" in dog body language.

We don't want any dog fights, so I just turn on at a distance of about 20-30 feet and the aggressors will high tail it back to where they came from. I've had to use on many occasions with excellent results. Make sure you get the Model II with removable 18650 Li-Ion battery. The case and charger it comes with are crap but light design is good and will fit in pocket.

Nitecore D2 smart charger and spare 18650 battery:


I have migrated all my lights to 18650 Li-Ion powered since I have found it much superior to CR123 or AA batteries.

Headlight I use for nighttime dog walks -great for spotting kitties and critters at night:


Yellow amber LED flashing light on top of the Dobe's harnesses in evening for better visibility:
