Dog Attack Caught On Camera

Did you watch the video?

They clearly say the dog was attacking all 3 of them.. That she was trying to fight off the dog...

The video quality wasn't good, but it looked like the dog ran past the woman, perhaps one the little dogs was lagging behind, then video appeared to stop and restart at the scuffle.....I didn't hear about injuries to people like the lady had her ear torn off or anything that effect??.

Yes, I did. Are there othere videos? I saw a blob running towards a white/black blob and lots of wiggling/struggling. Quite frankly they may have been fending off a rabid wombat for al I saw...?

How can you pick breed let alone species?

Not sure why you quoted me but I will respond to your questions..

The news report that relates to the attack and is reported after the attack part of the story, states that all three were attacked..

I agree, you can't pick breed but again, the news report said the police contained the dog at the scene and witnesses helped the woman and her two little dogs..

I watched the whole thing, not just the bit where the blob runs across the screen and the whole report explains pretty clearly what happened..

I can't pick a breed in that video, but I am inclined to believe the police, the witnesses and the woman until further information comes to light...

Including the fact that her 14 year old dog later died from his injuries by the attacking dog.

I really don't see what breed has to do with it??? It was a big dog at large.

The woman and her little dogs were attacked by a bigger dog, just because they have named a breed is irrelevant. The incident happened..

I would think they know the difference between a wombat and a dog.

Without watching it again and I really don't want to see that poor little dog with those injuries again. From memory one of the witnesses and her husband say she was attacked defending her dogs... I don't recall seeing any massive injuries on her in the video but one would think the trauma of defending your two little dogs against an attacking dog, in th end losing one tomhis injuries would be damaging to ones emotional state.. It's hard enough losing a dog under natural circumstances, this would be terrible...

As someone who is elderly and who owns two smaller dogs (10-12 kgs) I cannot watch that video. I know I would be too terrified to ever walk my dogs again. I once owned big dogs (30 kgs) and I love big dogs but I acknowledge that I am now too old to be able to manage one if a difficult situation arose, so like many other small dog owners I made a responsible decision. Big dog owners need to accept that they have an extra responsibility to keep people and smaller dogs safe because their dogs can do more damage. I want to be able to walk my dogs and feel safe. Is that too much to ask?

My dogs are trained and walked on a leash.

Size has very little to do with anything. MOST dogs who are declared dangerous or menacing are small dogs, that are yappy and untrained. ANY animal control officer can confirm this.

My friends Guide Dog is currently recovering after being viciously attacked by a Caviler King Charles Spaniel of all dogs. The Guide Dog was taken in for emergency surgery. It is unclear whether it will ever work again. The number one reason for Guide Dogs to retire is from Dog Attacks. Over half from smaller breed dogs.

Only the day before this attack I was out walking with my friend and some woman came past with some small yappy dogs in flexi leads and started growling at the Guide Dog who was in full harness. The woman screamed at us saying that big aggressive dogs should not be allowed in public places. The Guide Dog had totally ignored the smaller dogs. How is it that the Guide Dog is a big and aggressive and out of control dog?? This is something she hears on a very regular basis. People with small yappy dogs, think their dogs have a right to attack a guide dog, just because the dog was there.

I used to live in a block of flats and one of had a jack russell in it. The guy that owned it was a furniture removalist and played football in the lcoal club. He was incredibly fit and healty. 3 times I personally saw the dog pull him so hard that it pulled him over. He stopped putting the dog on lead as he could not control it on lead. I on the other hand had a labrador in a small one bedroom 3rd floor flat, which was full of people from other cultures, who were scared of dogs, but loved mine. She never barked, but had no need to bark. She was walked a minimum of 3 times a day, and was kept busy and occupied. She competed in obedience and agilty and was a visiting pet therapy dog. The same could not be said for the small breed dog taht was in the end kicked out by the Body Coporate, after it attacked two young children. ALL dogs can pull on a lead hard enough to pull someone over. Size has little to do with it.

ALL dogs can be out of control if they are not trained and well socialised, not kept under effective control, etc, etc. It is the DEED of the dog, not the BREED or size of the dog. I have personally reported 3 aggressive and out of control dogs to my local council in the last 6 months, all were small breeds.

I agree, see my thread on the General Discussion board, about Idiot Owners, it's not the poor dogs fault, that they have morons for owners. :mad

Brookestar I feel sick that you have dragged up my post from a few days ago just to have a go at me. You have not even read it properly. Go away.

Mantis I am not a moron dog owner thankyou. I may currently own small dogs. Is that a crime?

BTW small dogs yap because they are small and they are not physically capable of barking like a big dog.

Most declared dangerous dogs are small dogs :laugh: I would like to see the statistics to prove that.

Brookestar you just need a big small dog hug by the sounds of it.

Nooooooooooooo - don't you know that Broookestar probably knows of at least 10 people who've lost eyes, noses, ears and arms to vicious small dogs attacking?

Statistically, the Maltese is the most popular dog in NSW. Interestingly enough, it didn't even figure once in the dog attack statistics I was reading the other day.

I do find it a very odd comment to make as there are a whole lot of uncontrollable foul little yappers on the bite list but I very much doubt they are topping that list...

Beware the SWF....if they get your carotid :D

Where did I say you were a moron? I was talking about my thread on the GD forum, about a moron owner. :shrug:

I love dogs of all sizes, but I am realistic in terms of damage potential. Personally I think the sooner people acknowledge the fact that certain breeds/sizes are capable of causing greater harm, the sooner dog owners can work together to minimise the risk. If you don't acknowledge this then you can't move forward and the discussion will continue to go in circles.

It goes without saying that this does not negate the responsibilities of owners of other breeds/sizes.

Is a moron worse than a liar? That's what you called me the other day when I said I'd owned large dogs and you don't even know me, haven't got the first clue about me. One of the members on this forum actually fostered the German Shepherd cross that I rescued/adopted for a rescue group in SA and I'm sure she will be more than happy to put you straight in that regard. :)

Your apology will be accepted, rest assured.

The info in the attached link displays declared dogs according to the Victorian Declared Dog Registry as of 2011. Only a very small proportion of declared dogs listed here are actually small dogs.

Sadly there is a large proportion of the general public who have a problem with strong breeds, GSD's, Rotty's, Pitbull's etc etc and would like to them all gone, and these type of incidents plays straight into the hands of the faction who hate powerful dogs to use a lever to support their argument against them. One of my GSD's isn't flash on little dogs and cats and I know that, my God I know that, and I know he could harm a little dog or cat given the chance which makes me all the more vigilant not to expose him to the opportunity, so what the hell is GSD doing out on the street at large when the owner knew his dog had a problem with little dogs and rabbits I read in a report? It's time they started to implement prison sentences for owners of dogs who get out onto the street and cause harm.

I agree, prison for the owners of dogs involved in these kind of incidents would be a good idea. And mandatory education classes and maybe a ban on owning any dog until they can prove they are competent and educated.

Please provide the EVIDENCE that small dogs can't bark. ALL dogs, bar one breed (which is an incredibly rare breed) are capable of barking, and well behaved dogs don't bark. Dogs that have been debarked are not capable of yapping, so you can't even defend it on that basis.

If your dogs were as well behaved as you claim you would not defend small dogs yappying at every dog they see. They yap as they have been incredibly poorly socialised and trained.

And for the record I have owned and lived with both small, median and large size dogs. I have not had giant breeds, and currently have labradors.

I am yet to see how a small breed dog NEEDS to bark and yap at a guide dog in harness, but you seem to think it is necessary. I am yet to see where the EVIDENCE is that a fully trained guide dog is a much higher risk to the general public than an out of control small dog??

I have NEVER allowed any of my dogs to bark, yap or do anything else when walking past other dogs on lead. And I don't let them off lead if I am not able to know that I will full and total control of them.
