dog bite,anyone know for sure?

Posted: Today at 12:11

I thank  Each and everyone of you for adding to this thread, I admit I started off very adamant that my friend had done nothing wrong but even though I did kick off at stevie (sorry I've shortened your name ) after seeing it from different sides I am not so sure now.and Stevie I tried to pm you but couldn't so I hope you see this or some of your friends on here will tell you.I am very sorry I realised where you were coming from later .

But a few untruths have been added , to what actually happened. I do now believe even with my own dogs that a dog who has bitten should be put to sleep .I am now going to wait and see what the courts decide. 

I will let everyone know by a different thread. Thank you everyone .

Hi bekkie and Pauline thanks, yes we do use tubs for this and find them very useful ,when we first got lucky he couldn't bend his front leg as the traveller s who he was rescued from had run over his front paw , didn't take him to have it set properly so it caused him some problems at first .

What I am doing is regularly keep holding his dish out to him for a drink ,he is drinking a lot of milk ,just got stocked up with it  .picked up some minced beef for next few weeks , 're stocked  on eggs.lucky is partial to a scrambled egg.

Not bad is it .........OH is getting used to chappie too  and me  well i have toast and a cream bun !

It was puncture bites , friends son offered to take her to a&e but she refused his offer and went on her merry way through the front entrance to the has now been said that the dogs left the "scene" in a  play full mood , tails wagging normal play antics etc  I do wonder now had she been on there land previously ,and come in to contact with the dogs , and they thought she was playing,.?

This time was she running away as she saw my friend with her dogs and she knew she was trespassing , being connected in someway to the police knew she could be in trouble.?

I am now beginning to think there is more to this than meets the eye 

Welsh onion you have picked up on a few things, it should be the same if it reaches the courts so we shall see.

Mike I am beginning to realise that what I myself thought as a deterrent could in fact be just the opposite.

We have now three rescue dogs having recently had our german shepherd put to sleep through I'll health. We miss her so much  and have had to come to terms with not having our first dog around for much longer.

We never have put a.    " beware of the dog s "     sign  up.but have thought  since my friends episode with the law that we would be doing the right thing  plus it would be a deterant to the wrong sort especially living here with no neighbours next door as such.. 

It is also interesting the kicking out part, could you tell me ,? 

It's just curiosity this one : about 25 years ago I was attacked at work by a dog. I DID kick out at it   .my union was involved as I had to report the required  visit to the hospital 

When I was briefed on what to write I was advised by the union that I should keep quiet about kicking out at the the owner of the dog could have a cruelty claim against me.

But back to the case in question my friend has been asked why from the police why she has not had the five dogs destroyed..she explains she was taking advice from her solicitor. Who said not do anything apart from what she tells them untill further evidence comes forward from the police.but 3 of the dogs had nothing to do with the  incident.

The law  I think is too confusing .

You you have any views to add to this Mike?

Thank you Steve,everyone has helped tremendously  .our saluki is picking up slowly,I have  coaxed  and fed him by hand. He had some chicken and pasta .he had eaten a little more than the day before .

But today I cooked him some shell pasta in gravy then thickened it with arrowroot I mixed it with chunks of best steak  I found in the freezer. He is eating a little more each day .this morning he also had some cod in breadcrumbs which I ovan cooked

While we enjoyed  sausage and mash.       for dinner.

Yvie, I don't know if this will work for you if you should ever need it but pansie's  idea is part of it ,we hang the bird feeder from a unused washing line.we get plagued by squirrel s too .they get the food from the bird feeders,  leave droppings  but mainly they are greedy ,turns out we are feeding squirrels more than birds!

By hanging a tray from the bird feeder,this catches a lot but it has to be fairly deep with straight sides. It all so needs emptying quite often.but it does stop it going on the ground.

The idea of hanging it on a washing line  it's brilliant for birds but nothing else that you don't want  As it jiggles about. We got the idea from a nt woodland.
