AmBully vicious dog affecting neighbor’s way of life.
Below you find another real letter sent by a lady living next to a notoriously vicious pit bulldog and the preventative measures she was taking to defend herself, and her husband as well. Another personal story about what victims are facing, and doing back, in this today’s dog infested world.
“If walking to the movies or park with my son, where we go by the AmBully’s apartment, I always look for items I could use.
There are bricks and cinder blocks which might be short range but would at least give us a chance. My pepper spray and butcher knife are always with me to and from the bus stop, and if I see the dog out I take another route.
It’s always leashed, but I take no comfort in that, this dog is not nice and not afraid to show it. I’m making complaints, hoping something is done soon.
When my late husband was unemployed we took quite a few paper routes. I kept most of them when he found work.
Twice, vicious dogs came at me.
The first time, I screamed and climbed on top of the owner’s car. The dog had dug out and he was unaware, luckily he was home and responsive. That dog was a pit.
The second time it was a chow, it came from a house that sat about a 1/4 mile from the street. I was yelling at it and looking around for something to defend myself. A tree branch was what I found. I smacked that dog upside the head after it had chased me four or five blocks. It wasn’t going to give up, but when I hit it, it ran back home.
I encountered other dogs, some not so friendly, but they backed off if I held my ground and shook a newspaper at them. I’m glad the pit owner was home and quickly got his dog, I had nothing to defend myself with.
I’m very thankful the storm blew that tree branch down with the chow, it wanted blood, and I have no idea why. It’s not normal for a dog to chase you for almost a mile, and I only walked by it’s yard, out in the street.
My advice is, if you don’t have something for defense on hand, and you want to walk, look around and be prepared in case of attack.
I should add, we do not ever walk in front of the Ambully’s apartment, we use the street that runs behind it.”
