I have heard many reports of this rouge dog residing in Dawlish. I had been informed of at least two incidents. The latest one was the dog in question was tied up outside One Stop. A lady walked out of one stop and put her dog down and this dog ponced on the smaller dog and ripped the throut out and no doubt killed it. There was another incident last week when this lady was walking her dog on the lawn and her dog was attacked. As a new puppy owner myself I was warned by Tamzin the PSCO officer about this dog. I believe but no sure it's a Staffie with a white head. Be on your guard dog lovers. Make sure to pass this around.
Can I also make a plea to all dog owners to teach their dogs to come back to them. It's doing my head in every time I take my dog out whether on a lead or not some big bouncy dog (usually a boxer) comes bounding over to jump all over him. A lot of dogs and people don't like this. I can control my dog and bring him to heel and I'm fed up of stupid owners bounding after their dogs saying 'oh he's friendly'. Yes but I'm not. Or they just totally ignore their dog which is miles away from them so they can't stop it annoying other dogs/people or know when it's pooped.
@flo i know what you mean my dog is deaf and getting old and when she is having a quiet sniff and a dog comes bounding up to her and she tells them off i get the same reaction. i had a disagreement with a young woman the other day, she was sat in her car while her dog had a run around the field and did it's business i approached her and she was realy rude saying 'you must be mistaking love i have been watching my dog and it hadn't done anything' i told her to get out of her car and i would show her, but she was rude and just drove off at some speed so i didn't get the car number.
She had a small child in the back so i hope that child will have better values than the woman!
I have recently got a puppy and as it's been 40 years since I owned a dog it has become more obvious that owners still do not clean up after their dog. It use to be a lot worse some 40-50 years ago. At one time I would be concerned if I left the house without my phone now I'm concerned if I leave without poo bags, In fact the other night I took the dog out and sure enough she did her job but I had no poo bag, so I went home got a flashlight and went back out to pick it up.
Brooklyn bridge, do you want a medal?! Of course you should pick it up.
ziggy and flo, dogs are sociable creatures and you sound like you could learn from them.
To DogsRGR8. What did you see wrong with my post that I would want a medal. I was commenting that now I have a puppy It is more obvious that a lot of people do NOT pick up after their dogs. In fact walking up the Strand yesterday there were two big piles of poop on the pavement outside the travel agents, of which had been walked in by some unsuspecting person. Thanks Flo.
