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 dog.as 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?
