My husband and I were leaving the shopping center this evening when I spotted a gorgeous Amstaff sitting in his/her car in the handicapped section which is right across from the exit door. I told my husband that I could not believe the owner would leave the window down so the dog could jump out of his/her car no matter how well trained he/she happens to be. Well, as strange as this sounds, I made the comment that some people are going to be afraid and when I looked back, there was a crowd of people standing at the exit door. They were pointing. One lady stopped in her tracks. It was probably a group of twenty and the problem was clear. These people were definitely upset. I couldnt turn my back on the situation and walked toward the people, I stopped about 8 foot in front of the car and when people saw that I was standing there, they decided to cross the parking lot. The dog had a very calm demeanor and just watched people pass. I waited for the owner to come out and told them that I understand it is none of my business but they should never leave the window down so the dog can jump out. The man looked at me and said...Aint nobody gonna steal him. Ugh!!!What also upsets me is here is a situation that could have very well escalated simply because the dog is an Amstaff. I just had this vision in my head because people were frightened that the police would have been called and the dog the victim because of owner ignorance. I love the Bully breeds and this situation is something that just feeds the fear in people. The sad thing is that I really dont think the owner even cared.
