I am so glad to hear that the Cavalier will be alright and that the dog is off the streets. Such an awful incident...
In the photograph, the attacking dog is neither wearing a collar nor a leash. Clearly the dog's owner is lacking in responsible behaviors on more than one level. I'm relieved that Spot was not mortally wounded.
I noticed you're from the Charlotte, NC community. Your area police department (CMPD) has a large and comprehensive Animal Control Division. One of its core responsibilites is investigating dangerous animals. You may want to write down what you know for certain, and what "others" have told you about the specific dog and contact them (CMPD) for their assistance. You can easily start with a simple phone call to animal control and ask for an officer/investigator to explain the steps in this process. In short, you have everything to gain - and nothing to lose by calling. CMPD's Animal Control Division website can be found at: http://charmeck.org/city/charlotte/C...s/default.aspx

Since I just "overheard" something Kat (my friend said) and don't know details, I think my first step is to talk to her.
