my dog got attacked by another dog (boxer) today. it wasn't actually that bad of an altercation.
the owner of the boxer ran in wrestled his dog away then proceeded to whip whim with the leash yelling "BAD BOY, BAAD BOOY!" then yelled at me "WHAT YOU WERE JUST GOING TO LEAVE THEM, AND DO NOTHING?!" He was a pretty big guy, about 6'4" and built like a NFL Wide receiver and was quivering and all high pitched when he yelled that.
I was just quiet and checked my dog to see if he was alright (he was fine), but my wife calmly said: "it was your dog that ran in and attacked him". the owner of the boxer was still riled up and quivering and was also instantly apologetic in tone and walked away.
the way the guy was with his dog during the incident, I guess they might have been in past altercations. my logic here was: I'm not going to jump into a dog fight (especially if its between my 35pound 1.5 year old blue heeler and a 60lb boxer) and get my "money makers" injured if i see its just a tussle and not an all out blood bath (it was a tussle).
i'm happy that about 45seconds later my dogs were playing in the creek again like nothing happened and we still had a great day walking the trails.
