The fact she said the lead was trailing behind the dog gave me the impression it slipped the lead. I was just trying to say that even on a lead, dogs can be dangerous as we found out to our cost.

Sure I didnít say anything about allowing off lead dogs to wander and attack other dogs but I apologise if I did.

The devil is in the detail and I made sure I read the original post fully and please donít try and put words into my mouth. Thank you.

As a dog owner this dog is dangerous to other dogs especially if he already warned you. My older dog didn't like other dogs so kept on lead but would not attack on lead either so not muzzled. I think it should be reported to if it unfortunately happens again there has already been logged.

That is shocking, I would have been terrified. I hope Tilly makes a speedy recovery. I hate irresponsible dog owners! X

This is incorrect, legally having a dog dangerously out of control, even in your garden, can lead to police action if someone has been placed in fear for their safety. Whether the police are motivated enough, know the law, or using excuses because they donít want to is another matter. Iíve seen cases of people arrested and dna swabs taken, accepted caution, with just one incident of a dog jumping up and biting or scratching someone. That was obviously a motivated officer. Iíve seen people sued for 6 figure sums where their Ďfriendlyí dog jumped up and caused someone to fall over. My advice to any dog owner is get good insurance and only allow it off the lead in suitable places.

That is awful, I'm so sorry for all of you, hope Tilly is feeling better today. If that man knew his dog was dangerous he should have taken necessary precautions and muzzled it, its shocking to think that he knew what the dog is capable of and never did anything about it!
Big hugs to you all, but an extra one for little tilly x

I'm sorry this happened, it just have been terrifying. If a dog does not like other dogs to the point it attacks them then it bloomin well shouldn't be walked in a public area where other dogs are!

My parents have two little sausage dogs and we have had similar incidents although not as scary. One owner told us to pick them up as his dogs don't like small dogs, we refused as our dogs were covered in mud. He barely seemed in control of his three large dogs- they should not have been out on a popular dog walking route in my opinion. My husband was squaring up to defend us if they tore free of his grip.

When I was a child I was terrified by an incident where a large dog attacked our old sausage dog and pushed him into the canal. He didn't surface for ages and I thought he was going to drown (sausage dogs can swim but not particularly well and he was old). I think it might be what made me scared of big dogs for life.

If a dog was actually to attack I would boot that dog in the face 100 times over and would be in the right- you are allowed to protect your dogs from out of control animals!

I am not on Facebook but I have friends who are, do you think that getting them to put a warning on there is OTT? I have honestly not stopped worrying about it. It is probably enhanced because I am already stressed and worried over my sons friend cancer diagnosis so my emotions are running high.
We was up close and personal so I know he was around 5ft 10 - 6ft slim to medium build, aged 40-50, bald with thin rimmed glasses wearing a walking coat.
I am pretty good with dog breeds and I am 99.9% sure it was a boxer. Boxers face, long legs/height but it was more solid, more muscle than the typical slim build of a boxer. Very powerfully built.
We did not take little Tilly out yesterday, she was still very quiet and obviously sulking/feeling sorry for herself

That dog should be muzzled when out, itís owner knows itís dangerous.
I would have reacted exactly like your hubby whether it was attacking a human or my dog.
Hope Tilly is ok today.
