I have a shih tsu, he is bigger than most shih tZus but still a small dog. The neighbot has a service dog that I think is at least part german shepard, tho smaller than normal but larger by double than my dog.
Jasmine is always on her chain, but tonight my nieghbor was sitting outside, drunk, had just broke his nose by walking into his car and his dog was running loose. I come walking out to let wiggles walk along the street before going to get my husband from work. Jasmine attacks and has Wiggles in his back goinjg for his belly. Fortunately he needs groomed bad and she couldn't get her teeth thru his fur. I jumped in and beat her off. she is trained to not attack people and that training held. she wanted my dog not me.
I yell for Mike but Jasmine ran off. I took Wiggles inside. Then later went to go get hubby, wiggles was with me and out from behind the car comes Jasmine. She gets wiggles trapped again and I grab her collar, yelling for Mike. He finally gets his dog, mine is cowering on the porch and took me forever to coax him off to get into the car.
