We just got home from the e-vet.. My little Gizmo was attacked by our neighbor's pitbull in our front yard. He has four stitches, and one of those super cute e-collars..:rolleyes: The owner was really compliant and paid for everything, sat at the e-vet for hours with us..and so on.. but I don't know if I should have done more. We've photographed the wound..but do I need to file a report with animal control? I didn't because she was so compliant, and I don't want anything done to her dog..

She let her dog out to use the bathroom and stood on her back porch..She said he usually comes back when she calls him, but this time he didn't.. My fiance had Gizmo outside, on leash for potty time, but the neighbors kids were playing with him..so my fiance had his back to the oncoming dog. He said the next thing he knew, he saw the dog with Giz in his mouth, and that he was literally thrown into the air. She ran over to try to stop it, another neighbor from two houses down was able to grab the other dog and hold it back while he got a literally screaming Gizmo in the house...and I ran out and checked him over good and found the 2 inch laceration on his little butt butt. She came over and apologized profusely, we contacted an e-vet..and she came with us, in our car, sat with us through the whole waiting..and paid for everything...

So I don't know if I should take further action, or wait...or what..

It's also not the first time he's been loose.. I just worry about the next dog..you know? Not too mention that we were lucky it happened to Gizmo, and not to Roxy..
