Went a walk this morning and 2 Staffies attack him as any one who as read on the health will know he has got something a matter with his knees and might need a operation so please wish him well it was not very nice because they got both his ears and was pulling so that made him cry a lot---Aileen

How absolutely terrifying!! I hope barney is feeling alright. ;(

That's why I keep Kosmo on a harness at ALL times - I've had to rescue him from a big dog before. I'd rather they bit me than him.. ;)

Poor Barney.. *HUGZ*

Hope you start feeling better soon. :( Go get those knees checked out hun!!

Oh Aileen, I'm so sorry he went through that :cry*ing:

It's beyond me why people get dogs like that and fail to train them and keep them under control :swear:

OMG :yikes is he OK? Did you take him back to the Vet? I hope you reported the attack to the Police? The handler obviously didn't have them under control and needs to know that this is just not acceptable.

Poor little Barney :( Even more big :hug: 's for him :l*v:

Ohhh, I just read this and my thoughts are with you and your baby. What a horrible thing to happen.

I hope he will be okay!!! I am in tears just thinking about his attack because I have some personal experience with this type of thing happening - actually it happened to my mom's Lhasa Apso, Benji. He was attached by a couple of chows and was very badly injured -the vet advised my mom that nothing could be done so he had to be pts. It was so tragic - my mom hates chows to this day.

It sounds like Barney is not injured quite that badly and his injuries are treatable. I hope he is feeling much much better really soon. I know how hard this is for you and I'm thinking about you both. :flwr:

How terrible! I really hope Barney is okay. Poor Barney. It must have been horrible for you watching his ears get pulled and seeing him cry! :cry*ing:
Let us know how he is.

Some dog owners are so irresponsible. :x Last week my father had to take Coco to Puppy Kindergarten for me since I was away on your side of the pond (in London). I was upset to learn that when my dad took Coco to class, one of the other puppy owners had his puppy off leash in the parking lot, and he proceeded to attack Coco! All the puppies are much bigger than her, so she, of course, freaked out! This all happened before class when my dad had taken her out for her potty on the grassy area outside the parking lot. I don't know why the man had his puppy off leash when he is really not trained at all, and it is illegal. Coco is okay, but it was bad for her confidence. She was nervous during the rest of the class. :(

I really hope Barney is okay. My love to him. :l*v:

What an awful experience for both of you. :( Be sure to report the attack to police. I hope he is feeling better; I cannot stand dogs like that that are allowed to be off lead and out of control. :x

Poor Barney
My gosh I hope that he is okay and wasn't too badly traumatized, were the owners of the Staffies around did they at least see if Barney was okay.

I would also definetely report it.

Give him some extra :hug: from Me, Dudley & Darby.

OMG that is awful. I am so glad he is OK and that you are OK too. Many years ago I was out walking my toy Poodle when this big old Doberman came up to us, I had time to pick up my Poodle and then I stood up real tall and just hollered at the Doberman, I was so scared, but I was ready to kick that dog's teeth in if I had to. I was lucky and the dog stopped and didn't come after us. But those Staffies are pretty bad.

That is seriously scary. But am glad Barney is okay. what are people thinking letting there dogs off lead when others are around. That is one thing I will not do unless there is noone around. I trust my dogs but I dont trust others. And you never know if a brawl will ensue. Thats why I keep my dogs on lead unless in a controlled environment.

aileen, i'm so sorry, attacks are emotionally as well as physically wounding. it makes me so mad to hear about this happening. it should be safe for a dog and their person to enjoy walking the streets and enjoy the day. i'm glad to hear barney is ok now. :flwr:

My sister had to fight off a big dog once to protect an attack on her dog. My sister was in such a state. The girl who owned to dog begged her to call the police as she wanted to have her dog taken off her, she couldn't cope. How dare she let this happen on perpose to get rid of her dog.

Are all staffs bad with other dogs? I quite like them but every staff I've known was nice to pepole but would attack other dogs given the chance.

Don't think all of them are Pauline. We had neighbours who had one & he'd run and hide behind his Mamma's legs when he saw Maxx coming - he was petrified of him as Maxx was such a bouncy Puppy and Onyx was getting old :? He was such a softie I don't think he even knew how to growl :lol:

I hope that your dog is ok.

We were less fortunate with Charlie (who died recently aged 12) when he was only an 11 month old puppy. He was attacked by a German Shepherd for no reason when he was on the lead down the park.

Unfortunately, he was totally covered in bite marks and he lost his right eye which had to be removed and sewn up. :(

The police were not interested as the law in the UK only covers attacks on humans. The owners of the dog paid the vets bills, but still carried on taking that awful dog loose down the park. :sl*p: Charlie adapted well, but was very nervous of any dog bigger than him.

I am glad Barney is okay. Having your dog attacked is awful. Two weeks ago a Rat Terrier broke away from it's owner and attacked Audrey while we were out for a walk. Luckily no physical harm was done but I have never seen my husband so angry. Out of instinct he pulled the dog off her by the collar. The dog was just choking as my husband gave him back to the owner. My husband's beef was that this owner was smoking a cigarette and not paying attention. After walking a different way since yesterday I figured it was unlikely to happen again and walked our usual route. I got two doors down from the attacking dog's home and Audrey stopped in her tracks. No way was she going by that house! What a memory they have!!!! We now have a new permanant route!!
