Oh wow, I say the trouble is worth it. But since you have a child to go home to maybe a mysterious disappearance of the canine variety is the way to go.

Wow. Must be a slow night for you to actually consider shooting a dog. Ever think the dog wanted to play???

I would hate to shoot a dog. Especially if it is another child's pet. What kind of example would that set for the kids?

I wish we could treat humans the same way. Any time I saw a human acting wrong, I wish it could be shot....

I guess alot of dogs do feel that way. I just wish we could have world peace and dogs and humans be able to coexist in harmony.

This is why every dog should be exterminated from this Earth like the dodo that they eat and everyone should have cats.

I have a boxer and he is one of the most gentle dogs I have ever been around. You people are wrong about boxers. They are very loyal and great with kids. They make a good guard dog too if you need one

I understand if this animal is friendly. But the owner allows it to run freely in that persons yard without permission and with no regard for privacy or respect for personal property not to mention its chasing someone's child. I doubt he would say anything unless the child seemed genuinely frightened. Just because the neighbors dog is friendly it does not automatically obligate you to allow it to chase your children in your own yard. It doesn't work that way.

Shooting it is cruel. We had the same issue with our neighbors! We just kindly stated that their dogs upset our cats, kids and visitors. One was a Mastiff that slobered everywhere and scared every kid. Although he was a sweatheat. We had no more issues after we said something to them. My dad uses a water hose to get animals out of his yard. If the dog is threatening your kids the owners are liable if something happens. My niece won a lawsuit for plastic surgery and Dr bills because of a dog biting her.

Yes, killing something shows the children a very nice way to defend themselves.

In what manner was the dog chasing your kid? In a friendly, happy dog sort of way or was the dog being aggressive towards him/her? The answer to that question should give you an idea of how to handle the situation. In my opinion you should just call animal control.

Yall seem more concerned about the dog than the children involved. If the dog presents itself as the aggressor towards the child or any other person that is unable do defend themself. I would say put it down by any means necessary.I mean the child could be scarred for life or worse,and I would much rather deal with the court system,then see my child mauled by someone's "pet".
