I love Dog Parks because Hanna LOVES to play with other dogs. She is not agressive at all and most of the time she is overly summisive when other dogs respond to her playfullness with agression.
Im at my brothers house out of state doing more decluttering .Ive only been there 24 hrs and have been busy taking stuff out of the house. I have had Hanna on a lease outside while I work and in a crate inside when I go to the dump. My brothers house is right next to a HUGE soccer field wher people bring thier dogs . I have seen them both ob leash and off lead. I have yet to try to bring her over to play yet. This after noon I was placing a mailbox out the back door and She slipped out. There were two people and 2 mabe three dogs out in the field . As soon as she saw them she was a gonner! I yelled to please catch my dog and grabbed a leash only to hear a whelp.
Then the two dog ownwers were speedily taking thier dogs to the car and Hanna was running back to me. She had a gash on her leg and some punnctures.
I took her and ran to thier car yelling at them to stop saying your dog bit my dog. They almost got away. the man and woman got out of the car and were resitant to giving me any information.
She said your dog was running toward them. No oppologies and then s said well maybe youtr dog bit ours I said Okay lets take a look at them . They refused. and refused to give me thier name or any info. I had to get thier licence number went home and imediately called animal control which is the police . I had an officer come over to the house. The law is a dog has to be under leash or voice command so There was nothing I vcould do. They claimed thier dogs were on a leash But I didn't see any and its two words against one. The police called them up to get shot info for me .called me back to say one of thier dogs had a puncture wound somewhere near thier eye and they took a picture.
I had to take Hanna to the vet. It swelled up fast and she was limping. They shaved and cleaned it gave me anti biotics visit plus elizabethian collar came to 150.00. That was a Banfield pet ssmart.
I don't know whats going to happen. Im planning on trying to take my dog to visit the animal control officer who owns a bording kennel so he can see My dog and how sweet she is and talk more about the situation. The vet said if I had not gotten thier number or they got away state law says I would have to have Hanna given booster shots and quarenteened .
This makes the second very upsetting event both with a husband and wife couple and agressive dogs The other one I don't want to go into detail about .
For all that has happened to me Its a wonder I do go to dogs parks . I have found that Owners of agressive dogs are in denile and are great at gaslighting and making it appear that its your dogs fault thier dog had to be agressive and bite.
The dogs were german shepards or shepard mix . The other dog event was a huge female boxer .
If a dog is being agressive toard Hanna I now leave a dog park rather than ask an owner to control thier dog.
sorry for all the typos . Im pretty upset.
