    IOW, that wasn't an "attack"
    well, I herded his ass back up into his own yard.

    It's possible

    No, dogs never attack FOR NO REASON. But sometimes, dogs attack people who haven't provoked the dog, either intentionally or unintentionally. Some dogs have a very high "prey drive" (ie hunting instinct) which, when aroused, causes them to attack anything that moves.

    just like when you are walking through the woods, it is always the SECOND guy in line that gets bit by the rattlesnake.

    No, your son did not provoke the attack, but the dog had a reason to attack. It may not have been a "good" reason (dogs are dumb animals) but in the dogs mind, there was a reason of some sort.

    The dog may have been trying to establish dominance over your son. Some dogs don't like to have certain parts of their body touched. The dog could have been ill. Your son may have move too quickly and startled the dog. etc

    Re: Dog owner responsibility

    In neighborhoods/city type areas, it's primariliy the owners resopnsibility. Maybe if they had to carry insurance for dogs that are far more likely to butcher kids, they might opt for a poodle?

    We had an incident in our neighborhood years back with two pit bulls locked on to a neighbors dog in his own yard. He was screaming for help, I responded. Of course, it wasn't the breed, right? I love pit bulls, I just don't know how they fit in with neighborhood living.

    one of my dogs snapped at my daughter a couple of months ago when she patted him on the head. he''d never done that before and she had petted him countless times. turns out he had an ear infection and the patting caused him much pain and he snapped at the source of the pain. you never know. that is why it is a good idea to exercise caution around ANY animal.

    true.........but the owner was 100% responsible for the behavior of that dog. i'm just glad my son has no fear of dogs today.
