Our neighbors have had a rottie for a while. She would come to the fence and bark to be petted.
Recently he has gotten a pit bull. Now, I don't hate pit bulls. I grew up with an awesome one. I know friends who have awesome ones. But this one is a scary beast.
When it's not picking fights with the rottie (we hear them fighting off and on constantly) if we are in the yard he'll stalk the fence, then rush it barking, sometimes growling and sometimes trying to get over the fence.
The rottie used to bark at us too, but her's was a "Come pet me and love me" kind of bark. His is much more threatining.
I'm afraid of this dog. I'm afraid for my elderly and sick dog. I'm afraid for my children.
They are afraid for themselves too. They don't want to go outside and play in our own back yard, because they are afraid. Because a mean doggie lives next door.
Irresponsible pet owners drive me up the wall.
The video below shows him barking at us. He's wagging his tail, but that is NOT an indicator of friendliness. You can hear him growl a little as I stand up to film the rottie, laying in the yard being all peaceful and stuff.
