I am so upset! We were walking our dogs earlier today and our neighbor had his 10 year old daughter take one of their pitbulls outside. Anyways, the pit, normally very sweet, got free, ran towards us and just bit down on my 12 lb JRT's leg. The dog is just too big for the little girl to control. She was absolutely hysterical, screaming and crying and we had to literally beat the pit to let go of my dog. Another neighbor had to jump in to control the pitt. This dog is normally quite sweet to people, to other dogs, I'm not really sure. I'm really upset with the pit's owner for not having proper controls over their dog. The dog is a puppy so he probably didn't mean to do harm. He did break the skin, she bled a little, it is near her elbow and she is limping. My hubby doesn't think it's a big deal. I'm worried that she has a fracture or a sprain and am pressing him to take her to the vet. I don't think it's fair nor a safe situation. I like them as neighbors. It probably didn't occur to them that their puppy would do this. How would you deal with this?? I don't want to sound completely unreasonable, but if the little girl can't control the dog, maybe she shouldn't be the one to take it out? I am so ticked off at them right now.
