I don't know how they do things there but here in MI I was attacked by a GSD when walking Ky. She got him by the throat but I was bit on my hand. Animal control came and talked to me then left a form for me to fill out while he talked to the owner. He came back an hour later to pick up my statement and to let me know the dog did have his shots.
I had a choice of prosecuting or not. I chose not to if they would make it so he couldn't jump his fence again. They made her put up a privacy fence and the dog was quarantined in the yard for 10 days and she had to pay my medical bills.
I hope Barley feels better real soon!
My wife said they left a form for us to fill out, and will take ours and the other dog owners' and then I'm guessing we will have the opportunity to do something. For sure we are going to present them with the vet bill. Orange County has very good animal control officers so I'm hoping it should be pretty straightforward.

Ask the neighbors that helped to write down a statement for you on what happened most times animal control does all due dilligence sometimes not and you will need that in case it becomes civil in order to make sure they pay all costs.

So sorry this happened to you and your poor pup and wife, to many uneducated people own a pitbull. That is not a dog for everyone and should be cared for and trained properly and just by her behavior we can pretty much be assured that is not the case!

I'm so sorry this happened.. I hope Barley makes a speedy recovery. What a terrifying experience. Unbelievable how irresponsible people can be.

Wow, I'm sorry this happened. Make sure to verify through the owner or Animal Control that the dogs were current on rabies vaccinations. If they are not current they will probably be quarantined or you will be advised to start the rabies series.

I echo what Laura said. Call the police and file an official complaint.

All dogs here, are required to be on leash at all times, unless one is at an off leash area....that alone is a violation and lack of responsibility of the owner, currently seemingly at your expense. I would encourage you to do whatever it takes to ensure that this never happens again to anyone else, or you again and to at minimum get reimbursed for your vet costs as a result of what happened.

I am so sorry to read what happened to you, your wife and Barely. I hope that Barley recovers fast and well and has no lasting affects from this incident.

Healing wishes coming your way.

I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to your wife and Barley. So irresponsible of the other owner to just reinforce a negative stereotype. I really hope everyone heals and that the matter is resolved quickly - frankly, I'd be asking for the vet bill plus compensation for emotional duress. I can't imagine how scary that must've been in the moment.

I am so sorry this happened to you. How scary!!! I live near Los Angeles and I no longer walk my dogs in my neighborhood because of the excessive number of off leash dogs of all sizes and types. I had one irresponsible neighbor laugh because I jumped and yelped when their GSWs lunged at my dog while we walked on the sidewalk.
I hope your dear pup and wife recover from this unfortunate incident. Sending healing thoughts...

Poor Barley--and your poor wife. No one should ever be made to feel this way by simply walking their dog. Praying Barley heals very soon--and I agree with the others, don't stop until the other owner pays your vet bills and something is done to make sure this doesn't happen again. Please keep us posted.
