I was walking my two pitbulls like I do all the time on my street . They have been around children and all types of animals since they were puppies have never been aggressive. In fact they were around my friends dogs the weekend before. I see my neighbors door open and her boxer run Out of her house directly charging us . I froze . I didn't want to start running in fear that it would chase us. the dog runs up right into my dogs faces immediately a dogfight . At this point they are all 3 fighting. Because of all the chaos And being an animal lover i try to break it up. My male dog let’s go and then it is just the two female dogs . It finally gets broken up . At this point we called animal control and they come out and do a report. That dog charged at me and my dogs! My dogs were Provoked or protecting me . They did not know this dog and it came up so fast not in a friendly manner. The boxer did go to the vet and treated so did my dogs. My neighbor wants me to pay for their vet bill! And suing me!! I was doing was walking my dogs on a leash. Now because their dog was injured because my dogs reacted to a loose dog coming after me. Who is at fault? I hired a lawyer he did nothing .. and wanted to charge me more so I fired him now I have a pd who isn’t that good . Animal control seems to be siding with them bc yes the dog had injuries but I kno my dogs could have killed him plus there were two ... the dog came charging at me and my so ... provoked ? Yes protecting yes? They want to have them deemed dangerous which will cost me about &4K so with the 3,500 latest and 8k for them suing this dog fight cost me 15k ... I didn’t go to court yet so I’m hoping I won’t lose the case .. this has been he worst time of my life 😞any advice ?
