Freddie was attacked by bigger dog!

I was walking all 3 of my guys on the sidewalk in my neighborhood. They were walking on leash minding their own business. All of a sudden, this lady opens her front door and her dog comes running at us! He grabbed Fred by the neck and wouldn't let go. I tried to pull fred away but the dog had him locked in his mouth and fred was screaming. I punched the dog and when that didn't work, I pried his jaw open. The lady didn't apologize, she just said my dog has all her shuts and went into her house. I called the police, filed a report and off to the ER we went. Fred is just waking up as he had to be sedated. He got stitches and a drain. I called the lady to see if she would offer to pay the vet bill but she said, NO!! She said, I shouldn't be walking my dogs on the sidewalk because it drives her dog nuts?!!! Is she serious? I will take her to court. It's not about the money, it is principle!!

Going to pick up fred now At least he survived.

Thank god he survived. I am so sorry. Glad you reported this woman.
Sounds like she opened her door so her dog could go on the attack.

Punching the dog, that was good instinct.

Please know Fred has my best healing thoughts going his way.

Molly and I send prayers and kisses to Freddie for a speedy recovery. I hope you get some justice and some sort of compensation from this nutty neighbor for being such an irresponsible pet owner and just plain lousy person.

What? This is absolutely crazy. Were there any witnesses to the incident?

I have zero tolerance for people like that. I hope her dog bites her in her neck some day really good! What a bitch! I can't even imagine how upset you and Fred must be. Poor little guy. Keep us posted.

Thanks guys!
There were 2 kids and an adult there. I was dropping the "F" bomb all over the place. Fred is home and high as a kite. They sent him home with 2 pain meds and antibiotics. Here is a picture of the back of his neck.

There are no words to describe how I felt reading what happened to you and little Freddie, Linda. I am so sorry you both are going through this. I really wish there were serious legal consequences for people who allow vicious animals like that loose on an unsuspecting public, human or otherwise. Her response was deplorable. Evelyn named her appropriately. I think I could add a few more colourful adjectives, but I'll refrain, you all can use your imagination. She should never be allowed to own a pet. What a sick person. No wonder her dog is a mental case.
