    I love dogs as much as the next person.

    But, about a month ago I was sitting in the swing on my front porch when a dog I didn't know came running up the steps barking at me. I pulled my pistol at the same time I yelled at the dog to get out of here. The dog wisely turned and ran off. If it had continued toward me I would have shot it without hesitation.

I learned then to make sure he was restrained.

    Same thing with my Borzoi (Russian Wolfhound). She ran past my wife and got outside. A lady jumped in her car and was terrified. That dog also would not hurt a fly. They both wanted to play. We were much younger then (20 years ago) and make sure our dogs are kept on a leash when they need to be.


    To say might be your opinion but an ill informed one and a fallacy proven over and over again.....IMO
    I would agree that there are some 'in between' judgements to be made. I've also had some dogs growl, but it doesn't make me want to shoot them.
    How would you feel if a neighbor who knew your dog, but decided he's going to try out his new gun on your fun loving good dog because he was running at him.
    Keep in mind that this was a neighbor, and I'm sure that he knew the local dogs...no need to shoot in a situation like that. Only "IDIOTS" would shoot a neighbor's dog like that. (I respect your opinion, and I stand by mine.)
    I know the dogs all around our 'hood', and there are a few that I would be cautious with...but I could easily handle in a situation like that without grabbing my gun.OMHO

    If you've never had a dog run toward you you must have spent your life as a shut in.
