Default Omg wtf!!!

i went out before, came out of the bank and 2 dogs are savaging each other, someone had left a boxer dog tied up outside the pub and an old staffy dog was trotting along beside his owner, the boxer dog attacked the staffy dog, why leave a dog that is very very dangerous tied up outside a pub? why leave any dog tied up outside a pub? fair do's the person could have used the dog as an excuse to go the pub, but knowing it is dangerous and still leaving it outside a pub is beyond me, imagine if a kid had a dog at home but smells of it, what would the boxer dog have done then, it took 3 grown men to get the boxer off the staffy, the staffy put up a good fight and nearly ripped the boxers ear off, but people like the boxers owner should be locked up just for stupidity and never aloud to keep animals again, i feel quite sick at the sound of the horrid noises that come from dogs fighting,

i hate seeing them tied up outside shops too, you never know what will happen if they get stressed or scared. i hope the old staffy is ok though. if they were going to the pub they should have left the bloody dog in the house.

Maybe it was the first time the dog has attacked? Maybe it was the staff that was the aggressor?

Hard to know exactly what happened but one things for sure, you can never trust any dog 100%.

Its awful it really is but the boxer may be ok with dogs normally, some dogs just DONT get on. I take it the staffy was off lead? I think its irresponsible to leave your dog tied up anywhere these days tbh, tinks will quite happily walk away with any dog if they think they can make a few quid from it.

I hope both dogs will be ok and that the owner will have learned their lesson.

it was the boxer who started it, the staffy was walking past (off the lead) and the boxer attacked, i hope both dogs are ok at the end of the day its the owners who are to blame 1 not having the staffy on a lead 2 not having the boxer trained and 3 for even going the pub with thier dog, from the looks of the boxer (the scars all over its face) it wasnt the 1st time it had a fight

Have to agree here with Scott, because he's right. You will never know who TRUELY started the fight. The Staffy could have shown agressive body language towards the other dog, therefore triggering a reaction, and the Boxer just reacted accordingly because it was 'challenged'.

oh ffs. contrary to popular belief staffies arent aggresive dogs. i thin k GB is sensible enough to know who jumped on who. and no dog should be tied up and left, at least the staffy was with its owner. i have seen many of these dogs who never take thier eyes off the owner when they are out and react to hand signals from said owner. the first time i saw this i was facinated. my two will sit and lie by hand signals, but these dogs were crrossing the road at the owners heels but only moving when told to by the owners hands. amazing truley intelligent dogs.

if you truley believe the boxer reacted because of body language god help any kid showing the same body language.

Another typical prime example as to why the Dangerous Dogs Act should be amended to consentrate on incompetent owners, rather than blaming everything on the animals all the time. Why take a dog out if the owner has no intention of being with it for the duration. The boxer was most likely being territorial and felt restricted being tied up and left, and I bet the owner of the Staffie was walking with his dog closer to the boxer than himself!

Hi, Lynne.

Dogs can, and do act on body language.

In the thread, GB stated that when she came out of the bank, two dogs were fighting. This suggests that she did NOT see it start, however, caught the end of it. So how the hell was she to know who started it? And unless you can fluently read cainine body language, from start to finish, you simply can not say who it was, as you don't know.

Yep. It's all the owner, not the dogs. The dogs simply react on natural instinct. One dog has simply given the challenge, the other has accepted it, and both owners have failed to realise this, or, prevent this, therefore the fight happened.
