It dsnt matter if the dog was "playful" or not. It's not their yard. And I've seen the most playful pooch turn on a dime and become suddenly aggressive. And a small child can't react defensively quickly the way an adult can. You really can't blame someone for protecting their child, regardless of the backlash.

LOL..do you really think the kind of trash around here that let their dogs roam free are gonna have the money to pay up in a lawsuit?
I don't think he's talking about a lawsuit here. I think he means getting charged with animal cruelty, or something along those lines, for killing a dog.

The dog needs more responsible owners, problem solved. If you can't handle and take responsibility for your pet, you shouldn't have them.

As someone who has contacted police several times over aggressive dogs, YOU do have the right to shoot and kill the dog in DYER COUNTY...as long as it is threatening you, your family or any livestock you may own. This has to take place on your property.
The dog cant just be walking down the road while you blast it.
I personally dont believe in killing any animal, but you can bet your sweet tail, if my child, pet etc...were being threatened in my yard, then I will do whatever means necessary to protect and stop the attack.

Where in the heck were all of you when I was on here talking about the a-hole neighbors who got my friends in a shtload of trouble simply because they had their dog on a chain??? because the dog wld chase certain neighbors kids and they asked em to keep the animal on a chain/leash! all the ppl tht responded to tht were all like "no animal shld be chained up" and "how wld you like to be chained up" and blah blah. I bet some of the ppl tht were saying tht were the same ones on here bitchin about the opposite! So wtf is it? Keep the dogs on chains so they can't chase after kids or let the dogs run wild and terrorize kids and sht in evbdys yards and tear evbdys property up?! Which is it? Seriously?! My friends were fined a ton of $ for simply having the dog on a chain and the dog got tangled in it! They got made out to be some crazy ppl who wanted to hurt the dog by some pathetic ass neighbors who had no lives of their own! And no, they aren't the kind of ppl who sell dope or live in a bad neighborhood or live off the govt! They are hard working, upstanding ppl! She's a nurse and he's been working at the same place for over 20yrs and they bought the pet for their grandbabies. yet when I told about it on here, all the loud mouth psychos chimed in about how dogs shld run free and be able to basically chase and bite and mame whomever they choose! I guess tht was just all the fcktards around here who were commenting then huh

You may think or be lead to believe shooting some ones dog is the answer to the problem.

But in the real world, your problem is just beginning.

Pet owners do not take lightly to an unjustified shooting when so many less fatal remedies are an option.

Use the brain in your head first, before you use your finger on the trigger.

Of course you can shoot an attacking dog but are you sure it's really trying to hurt someone? Did you see it? If so, why didn't you do something then? If you didn't see it, you are probably over reacting. If a dog was actually going after my child with bad intent, it would be dead before I was able to get on the net and talk about it. I stabbed a pit with 2 kitchen knives for attacking my dog in my yard, first thing I could grab. Had to prove I'm the most vicious animal around here. But other dogs come and go, we don't care.

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.


My experience with animal control is that it takes them between 4 hours and a week to respond to calls. I guess they are really busy. If you are having problems with a vicious dog, animal control will tell you to call the police dept. or sheriff's dept.

no they wont do a damn thing unless they can prove it was the person that shot the dog..
I had a pit bull he was a loving dog and would not bite no one but one day he gets out of his pin and we have been having problems with our neighbor that lives behind us but out dog gets out somehow and the neighbor decides to shoot him in the neck so with the dog being scared runs up town and ends up at a loving family that took it in and the dog dies from the shot to the neck and we could not do anything about it because we could not prove it but we know it was him that done it to our dog...

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".
I agree!
