Rufus' Mom aka Linda
I am so angry and scared right now...UGH! New people just moved in next door on the weekend. Today I took Rufus out for his afternoon run and just as we got to the bottom of our driveway, the new neighbour's dog jumped over the railing of their back deck where he has been kept since they moved in. He came towards us and sniffed Rufus, sniffed another dog whose owner had stopped to talk to us and then ran around sniffing the ditches. The owner was warned by one of the other neighbours that his dog was now loose and he came out to get him. At that point the dog ran towards Rufus who jumped up to play as he does with all the neighbourhood dogs..wagging his tail. The dog jumped on him and pinned him down snarling and biting his neck. The guy was able to get his dog off Rufus but it scared both Rufus and I. His dog is not neutered and he's two years old. I hope this isn't the beginning of a huge problem with these new neighbours...I just needed to vent.
