“But My Dog Is So Friendly And Well-behaved!” Man Calls Dog Owners Out For Walking Their Dogs Without A Leash

We are sure that you have heard this phrase from owners who don’t mind letting their dogs off their leash for a while. Although this gives our playful friends their necessary freedom and fun time, it can also cause dangers to them and others. If you are in a public area, putting your dog on a leash can save you a lot of trouble.

That’s also what a woman who goes by the name u/mrsjhev1 on Reddit wants to share with us. Taking to the subreddit r/unpopularopinion, she wrote, “I don’t care how well behaved your dog is, put it on a leash.” She then shared the accident that she and her dog met when walking outside. Of course, it was caused by an off-leash dog and its irresponsible owner.

Needless to say, her post caused a debate online, and people decided whether we should let our dogs run freely sometimes or not. Let’s explore this!

“A few months ago, while walking my dog outside, an off-leash dog approached. What was only probably 5 seconds felt like a lifetime. This off-leash husky ran over, with his owner about 30 FT away, and attacked my greyhound in the jugular, stomach, butt, and all four legs. After the attack, my husband walked our dog to the nearest vet, as blood pumped with every beat from my dog’s chest,” the woman recalled the terrible accident that she never wanted to remember.

While she was worried for her dog who was covered in blood and was seriously injured, the dog owner kept saying “she’s so friendly, she never does this.” He continued to say that to the vet and the police. Not only did he refuse to take responsibility for his fault, but he also refused to pay the vet bill.

“My dog was in emergency surgery and was bit 3 veins off the jugular. He was so close to not making it and I was stuck with a $6000 bill that I had to pay if I wanted him to live. No the other dog owner didn’t pay, and I have to go through the trouble of suing him,” she shared.

The dog right before his stitches came out, almost fully recovered:

“There are leash laws for a reason. I don’t care if your dog is “friendly” and “well behaved”. Put it on a leash. If something happens, you’re entirely at fault. I now carry a taser after what happened. Keep your dog safe, and keep them on a leash. People like me are out there, with teasers, ready to protect their dogs. Be responsible. It’s literally the easiest thing you can do.”

Here’s how Reddit reacted to her post:

OP quickly responded to all Reddit users who left comments on her post: “Wow, thank you for the awards. Thank you to everyone who sent me warm messages. I didn’t expect this to take off as it did and I’m so happy with the response. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
