abbies_mumma Posted March 20, 2006 Report Share Posted March 20, 2006 I was at the dog park with Abbie this afternoon when a tiny puppy (Shih Tzu??-it was a little fluffy thing) came in with its owner on a lead (the dog was on the lead). Already at the park were two dogs-a black lab and a staffy. They were both usually very nice dogs (id met them before at the park) although the black lab is VERY boistrous (sp?). I was coming up from out of the park with Abbie on the lead and the little fluff arrived at the park about the same time as me. The black lab and staffy who were playing ran over to us to say hello. I let Abbie off the lead to go and play but then the other two dogs went to say hello to the little puppy so Abbie followed. She sniffed the little dog then ran away from the dog and owner (puppy still on lead) hoping someone would chase her. The other dogs (lab and staffy) were still saying hello to the puppy who was on the lead. The staffy was standing there watching while the lab was bouncing (as they do!) around the puppy trying to get it to "play". The puppy was very scared and started yelping so the owner got very distrort and tryed to pick the puppy up. I was meanwhile grabbing abbie and putting her in the lead as she was getting excited. The lab was bouncing and started to fight with the puppy who was yelping away. The owner of the staffy came and called him away but the owner of the lab who was attacking the puppy was casually walking from the other side of the dog park to where we were. She had seen her dog attacking, mabye she thought she was playing? :confused: I was holding Abbie away and the owner of the puppy was trying to get out of the way and pick up her dog. The lab didnt have a collar on so i couldnt have grabbed her as well as keeping abbie out of the way. I also didnt want my hand taken off. The owner finally got there and called the lab away but didnt even look at the other owner or apologise to her. I feel really bad now like i should have done something to stop it. The owner of the puppy looked really upset. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
