Exclamation Walking new dog "Rocky"

I have a huge dog 6 months old, I think he part German Shepard, unsure but what a beautiful dog, daughter gave him to me a couple days ago. Rocky requires exercise for sure he's very hyper and I have him secured with a collar and thick chain.

I was attacked not more than 100 feet from my house by a pack of dogs that belong to the neighbor on the corner, man it was a close call and I had no stick, completely unprepared, the dogs were trying to tear him apart, I ended up running with the dog and we got away, he got bit in the tail and back thigh area, I don't see blood, he's had his shots.

On the way back I picked a large rock and friend of my wife gave me a smaller stick, another dog came at us in front of the family members, he came out of the house and was gonna attack I raised the stick and the dog backed off the people seemed angry and didn't do or say anything to control their dog.

Made it back home and crossed the same corner we were attacked in and the owner or care taker of the property motioned to me the dogs were locked up in his compound.

Not sure I'm gonna venture out again for a stroll but I crafted a couple of different sized sticks out of Mahogany wood, seems like the smaller one is easier to handle with more of a bite, easier to swing then the larger "Walking Tall" stick I first made.

Something I hadn't noticed before is just how vicious the dogs are towards other male dogs and most of the residents had their pets tied up or behind gates, never noticed the dogs till I took Rocky for a walk, the danger lies in families that have multiple dogs and don't restrain them, one or two dogs I can deal with but 6.

A lot of street dogs are feral, and I have seen them helping themselves to pieces of pig being chopped up ..

and a pack leader etc, is bound to be sure

I would suggest you take your dog to a vet, shots or not ..

Did you ever try getting rocky used to a Tread mill to burn off his energy ?

and from what I know, the street dogs will only start to attack/go after you if you run .. or so ..

Just stop, and with your dog you control the situation, they will learn respect

I know it is not that easy ... if the dogs are large. Smaller dogs, you can learn that

Well we tried or stopped and it started to get tense, so I pulled Rocky and that's when he got bit in the tail by yes a leader this dog is brown and has tiger like black marking on him and then the other dogs joined in, dang it I tried to scare them away no way so I ran with him and that worked we got out of their area so to speak and they followed for about 50 feet and turned around.

You become helpless, hopeless without some form of protection. I've had some close calls walking down the road by myself, I may add this stick when walking by my lonesome, there are several spots like this in all directions where I live, dogs are allowed to run free, dangerous dogs, ones that bite, the kind that bark are okay but when the resort to biting, trouble is some citizens seem to be limited, don't understand or lacking basic smarts when it comes to doing the right thing, been told by in-laws they're considered "innocent"...LOL

Another alternative to this and the PM I sent would be to find a location where you can buy a small spray container of peper-spray like the US postal service carries and use it. Once or twice with that and they will quickly learn. Just be sure that it does not make contact with your dog when used or he/she will be unable to depart the area with you for 30 minutes or so.
For a short time I was a bar tender in a rough and tumble cowboy bar in Northern Montana. Trust me, it is most effective!!

I would not start hitting the street dogs, unless I know they have no owner

And I recalled a remedy .. Get a dog whistle, or better, get two different brands, as you wouldn't know which one is gonna snap the dog out

Until you get a dog whistle, get a normal referees whistle and blow and that can shock the pack out..

And if you can, as I see some have, get a mace spray

If you can find liquid ammonia, such as "sudsy" in the US, put it in and old Windex bottle that has the straight stream function, it works pretty good, I use to use that on a paper route I had as a boy but i put it in a water pistol...

Also laying into someone elses dog could get you into all sorts of trouble.

Right I noticed a very angry look (women) when I was about to hit the owners dog but they did nothing to stop their dog from trying to bite mine, they just sat there lackadaisical, good thing he didn't bite Rocky when the owners pet got close to us menacing, I raised the stick and then the dog backed down, (I noticed the angry look then) had to do this 3 times while I was walking by, I also noticed possibly one of the family members of the dog following me for a while on a bike.

This second spot was about 3 large blocks away from the house I took another route, I've walked down this road several times over the years but these people have no clue who I am or think I'm some sort of tourist, most remember me from my monkey, I had a monkey for 3 years but he got dangerous and menacing to others, not me (he was inside a gated area but people messed with him, drunks and kids) so I brought him to the mountain and let him go.

Speaking about dog, I saw dog everywhere yesterday in Eastwood area, even inside of mall. Can someone explain this please lol
What I grasp is ... In this 'new money' area dog considered as 'status item' rather than beloved pet?

I rode a gauntlet on my bike everyday as a paperboy. Tried everything to stop them, finally tried giving them treats. Some big dog I never seen before showed up and beat up the other ones to get theirs. Was pretty fun to watch lol.
