Well I went to take my dog for a short walk and in an alley way there was, and apparently still is a rottweiler that looks and acts very aggressive. The rottweiler has always been able to stick his head through the fence and bark very fiercely. The first time I walked by he did just that, stuck his head through the fence and barked, nice I was able to keep my pup pretty much in line and continue on, a good learning experience. I walked around and took note of which house it was and continued my walk. I did walk right back by after circling the block but the second time the rottweiler stuck his head out and just looked, then he/she ran to another part of the fence and got right though charging my pup and I. Luckily I LOVE rottweiler and for some reason I am never scared of them. Anyways it got through the fence and barked and charged but I had my rear eye on it and turned around and yelled "NO, BACK". Boy did that dog turn tail and trot of to poop :) .Anyways I informed the owner that it could get out, and she was apologetic and all and thanked me. I just wanted to let her know it could be scary for some unwitting person.Well like most rotties I have ever known they just "act" tough to the unknown and non threatening. It was a good learning experience for my pup to because, boy did he seem to respect me after that. Not that he did not before but I think he realized I have it all under control.
A good but possibly scary situation.
Ah some day I will get me one of those big clowns also knows as rottweilers.

Glad it ended well. I certainly hope the owner takes it seriously and gets the fence fixed for the dogs as well as any unsuspecting strangers safety. I am glad you are not afraid of Rottweilers. I think if a strange Rottweiler charged me and my dogs I would have a moment of "oh crud!" Guess I have seen too often what COULD happen. ;)

Yeah it sounds like they will. Also my good friend years ago introduced me to many guard dogs he delivered to yards in Sacramento, Ca. I guess I just see them as big clowns that naturally only go after what is a "true threat". Works for me anyways :)

It is only the real small power full dogs that might make me have that "oh crud!" thought. I figure the larger they are the more area I have to get a hold of them.

I had a similar experiance with a labrador.

I had found another stay Lab and I was going around to peoples houses asking if they knew who it belonged too. well I went up to the door at one house, and from around the corner of the house a large Labrador comes charging hackles up and barking offencivly. I just tuned toward him and yelled "NO!!!" in my meanest most growly voice. and he stoped and backed up and walked away.

WOW Vslsh,.... The Force is with you. Well done my young Apprentice. Your knowledge with the Force is Amazing.

I was Charged at by a Rottweiler 2 times and it was scary. I was on my bike going up my block when the rottie came out bark and growling viciously at me. I used my bike as a shield, but thank god I was not attacked. This happened because the owner was not supervising the dog. All I know is that the seconfd time it happened, someone called the Animal Shelter and left a note on there door and never again was the rottie allowed outside without a leash and or supervision.

That reminds me of being charged by a Doberman.

I was 12 at the time living in Berwick, Pennsylvania and enjoying my summer vacation... I was riding my bike along this 3ft stone wall that on-top of a short grassy hill sat a huge two-story house with a wrap-around porch. It wasn't but maybe a total 6ft give or take from their porch to the sidewalk.

I've been by this house several times, but never noticed a dog... So as I'm peddling along that wall, paying attention to the broken sidewalk in front of me, I heard a deep/loud bark and looked up and on that wrap-around porch was a Doberman. From laying down on the porch it jumped over the banister and appeared to fly through the air, as I'm falling to the side off my bike the Doberman "reached the end of his rope" where he pulled, jaws snapping and chomping, saliva speckling my face...

I about wet myself...

At the end of the week I drove-by, on the opposite side of the street and saw them on ladders putting up a fence at least 8ft high, and every so many feet or so was a BEWARE OF DOG sign...

Fortunately I'm not scared of Dobermans. : P lol!

I had my own experience with being charged at by a stray tonight.

I was out taking Cubby for a walk, practicing heel and all, when out of nowhere I hear growling and barking and finally see a medium sized mixed dog (couldn't tell what type it was since it was dark out) come charging at us teeth bared. My first thought was "Oh ****" Second thought was that this dog was gonna attack my Cubby. So almost without thinking, I got Cubby behind me quick, I stood up tall and made the loudest shhhhht sound that I could.

I was actually surprised that the dog abruptly stopped!! It looked at us, made one more less threatening bark, and then walked back towards the area that it came from. Cubby and I stood where we were for a while, until I could not see the dog anymore, and then we continued on our walk. I was pretty amazed that I was able to stay calm and took charge of the situation. Cubby stood behind me the whole time, not charging towards the dog or making a sound.
