How awful! I'm so sorry for your wife and Barley. That must have been terrifying for both of them. I would take it to the farthest degree I could and I like the idea of a "dog bite" attorney.

I hope Barley won't have issues going forward with fear. I know I would. Hope everyone heals quickly.

I can imagine how frightened they both were. I hope you get everything settled and the other owner never lets those dogs off leash again. Hoping for a speedy recovery.

Sending healing thoughts to both Barley, and your wife. I hope there are no long term emotional scars as well.

I'm so sorry for your wife and Barley. I would be terrified if that happened to me. I hope they recover quickly and everything is resolved quickly. It may be a good idea to get her some pepper spray or something for future walks.

I feel bad for your wife and Barley and I hope both recover quickly. I do question the breed of the dog that attacked your Barley. So many dogs are called pitbulls when in fact they are not and it gives the APBT a bad name. I hope the lady that owns the dogs pay your vet bills and if they are APBT I hope she learns how to properly contain and care for her APBT so this doesnt happen again.

Please make sure you follow up on this and demand proof that these dogs had their rabies shots. If they do not then your wife will have to take the rabies shots and Barley will probably need a rabies booster. that is the major concern, but this person also needs to pay your vet and doctor bills.

Poor little Barley...and your poor wife, too! Incidents like this make me sick. Innocent dogs and people being attacked by aggressive, unsupervised dogs. It's terrible that Barley has to pay the price for someone else's irresponsibility. I hope he has a speedy recovery!
