I have a small dog- about 8 pounds. Two doors down, there is a pit bull. The pit belongs to the owner's brother, who lives with her. The owner lets it run free. She follows me and my dog while walking, to the point where I have to pick up my dog or try to get home quick. I can't talk Charlie to go to the bathroom in the front yard anymore b/c the pit bull comes into the yard at whim. I have found the dog waiting for me in my garage when my garage door is open, pacing and showing her teeth, growling, as well as trying to figure out how to get into my house through my dog door. The owner knows I don't want this dog on my property- when the dog came into my garage, he eventually came looking for it and was like, oh she is harmless, don't worry about her. She did NOT appear harmless. There is a lease law here. I am really thinking of calling animal control, b/c I am uncomfortable and can't even use my own yard or keep my garage open while doing yardwork. Am I overreacting? Do you think animal control would actually DO something? I just have a problem w/ this dog roaming free, when it follows you, baring its teeth and growling. FYI- I am not trashing pits. I am sure some are great dogs, but this one seems aggressive. I'd feel the same way if it was a cocker or even a lab acting this way.
