I have just got new neighbours, and they have a Rottweiler and are not the nicest people around, if you get what i'm saying! The dog was allowed out on the street last week and frightened a staffie so much that it bit it's owner and had to be put down, might be a kid who gets hurt next. So how do I go about getting rid of these horrors??

Contact the council dog wardern, I do believe it's illegal for a dog like that to be out in public unrestrained.
specially a rotweiller

They have been charged with something related to the dangerous dogs act but the dog is still there and untethered in the garden a lot and i'm worried sick about it getting out when my kids are around, so i'm keeping them in now. Not fair to them, but I feel like I've no choice

very dangerous dog, it was on the news last week that another young kid got attacked badly by one playing in the street, so the council dog wardens will take it very seriously..
#4
Does it matter if it is not a council house, it's a private let??
#5
oh my god , I would be petrified having seen one of those things attacking another dog this week ! They just don't let go when they bite. keep back door shut. Put in an anonymous complaint, keep doing it !! Good Luck

Ask the local dog warden or even the police about The Control Of Dogs act. My wife got bit by 2 Lurchers a few months ago during an attack on our Mini Schnauzer. This is what the police are charging the owner with and the CPS think thers enough evidence against her on the above basis.

Basically any dog MUST be on a lead once it has crossed you properties border and out into the public. If it is deemed as in any way volitile hen it must also be muzzled. Failure to comply can result in either a fine, the dogs taken away from the owner and rehoused if viable... or ultimately put down if rehousing is not viable.

I am petrified and feel so stressed out that it's living next door. It has a head bigger than a football. It actually damaged this woman's door by head butting it to try to get to the other dog, and her boyfriend who is a body builder was having trouble trying to keep it out

I'm not saying the dog in the op hasn't got the potential to be a dangerous dog, but just because It's a rottweiler doesn't mean It's inherently dangerous

mother in law has a staffie, she is gentle as a lamb, but at certain times she can be a real grump,and when we had our terrier at her house she went for him big time. was very scary. You can never ever be sure of these dogs. when they have a bad moment, they can easily do waay more damage than many other dogs.
#20
The fact is all dogs are potently dangerous around kids, because they are animals and have have animal instincts, that is there nature..

Sick of uneducated people always putting Rottweiler's down , I've grown up with them and my family have always had them not once as any of our dogs bit anyone or anything , they are as soft as anything , they wag the tails when children stroke them, its the owners not the dogs which needs addressing.

If you don't handle a dog well or train or socialize it then its like any dog it may become aggressive , no matter what breed it is

Also how did the Rottie frighten the staffie? , its hardly the Rottweiler's fault that the staffie bit his owner.

Have to agree,
the breed in question doesnt dictate how dangerous the animal is,
If the dog is dangerous, that is down to human error and not the animal, nor the breed.

Canine directed aggression and human directed aggression in dogs is 2 completely separate issues,
a lot of dogs can show aggression towards another dog but it doesnt mean they will be aggressive toward humans.

Also ALL dogs, regardless of breed have the capability to attack , just that some breeds are more powerful than others, therefore the damage done is on a larger scale.

absolutely right, a rottweiler and say a little jack russell have a big difference in power and damage they can cause to a human, once the jaws of a rottweiler lock on to something it is near impossible to to get it off..

We have had three dog attacks in Scotland this last week. Horrific to see the results on TV news. One of my kids just seems drawn to dogs and I do not know whether to show her the pictures or not. I am sure it would make her think but it would also give her nightmares.

It is horrible that you cannot feel safe in your garden, that is not right. I hope that something is sorted for you ASAP.
#25
Horror tale of dog.

Stay completely clear - you are right to be frightened. I love dogs but some ( and their owners) are simple dangerous.

I hope you have reported to everyone who might asist.

NO re the pics!! You could teach her how to behave around dogs using a toy or a real dog you know will be patient. A frightened child will send out all the wrong messages to any dog - putting the child in potential danger

Having your own dog is a wonderful thing and a faithful chum.
#26
By the sounds of it ,its not just the dog thats an issue here , its the neighbours who own the dog that sound like could give you problems in time !!
We have ' scum ' living nextdoor ( but not for much longer ) yipee !! , i went to the local one stop shop and made a report about there behaviour which they recorded and gave me incident sheets to fill in, they take anything like this seriously and as its privatly rented we had the owner/landlord on our side ( because the way they treated the property ) and they have now been given an eviction notice !!, nip it in the bud now before they get worse i say ! goodluck (_;)

I am not a nimby type of person but I think in instances where unsociable neighbours cause unacceptable limitations on the enjoyment of your own property (especially if they are newcomers), the gloves come off.
If the dangers are as you state it should not be too long before a credible case can be put to somebody who will sympathise and work with you.
Remember that there are both direct and indirect routes. Just dont allow yourself to fall foul of any laws.

Your mother-in-law went for the terrier? ;)

Seriously, yes, every dog has the potential to be dangerous; just like every mammal has if it is frightened, or under pressure by external forces.

In this case, you brought the terrier into the other dog’s home & he/she was simply defending the position in the household. That is what you expect a dog to do; show dominance to the lesser-pack member; to demonstrate “top dog” so to speak (erm, type).

You need to introduce dogs to each other on neutral territory if you expect them to share the same space where one dog has already been resident.

This aside…

I'm presuming you feel you cannot speak to the owner(s) of the dog, brangelina?

I'm not defending their actions, but if the dog got out of their property last week by accident you may be starting something with what sounds like troublesome neighbours & provoking them into further action in the future that you would be well-advised to avoid.

Has the dog been allowed to roam the street on more than one occasion?

PS. Council offices are usually open until at least 5pm. It would be worth your peace of mind (especially overnight today) to just have some advice from them to see you through until a visit can be arranged.

BFN,

You must keep on complaining to the authorities until it gets sorted. A friend of mine in France has a rottie who is absolutely adorable and as soft as butter but the one next door to Brangelina is obviously dangerous, as are its owners apparently, so don't wait until disaster strikes.

obviously dangerous because someone on an internet forum that you don't know has said so?

OMG my worse nightmare. I lived next door to someone who was renting and they had a rottweiler. It used to growl at me and jump up with its huge paws on the wall, so it could look at me. In the end I didnt go out to my back garden. I have now bought a new house but heard they moved anyway. It really did frighten me and none of the other dog's growled at me.

so there are friendly small dogs and aggresive small dogs, friendly big dogs and aggresive big dogs , I think most people would prefer to be attacked by the small dog , but as someone posted on here in another thread he would "feel and look gayhomo walking a small dog ", so basically its down to the owners and their vanity why they want a big aggresive dog.........they must have complexes !

Absolutely,
it's bloody disgusting the amount of people who own certain breeds of dog for the wrong reasons, either for intimidation or for status.
These are the idiots that through lack of love, adequate training and socialisation allow their animals to intimadate people in this way and give the so many responsible owners a harder time.
I personally like larger breeds, that is my preference, and have owned / been around Staffordshire bull terriers, German Shepherds and Rottweillers most of my life and have never had a problem with any, even thought they are often portayed by the media to be "devil dogs".
It's a problem with dog ownership that is the real issue and the lack of laws regarding who is suitable, or not as the case may be, to own an animal.
But that is another issue.

OP, i really hope you get the situation sorted out.
It must be an awful and terrifying experience and i can understand your concerns for your kids.
I'd certainly make a complaint and document everything you can, either in writing or if you can video evidence.
If it is a one off, as said by Fanpages, that is one thing, but if it is a regular occurence then it really has to be addressed as it not only isnt fair to yourself / your kids / other neighbours etc,
it also isnt fair on the dog
Hopefully if you / neighbours can gather as much evidence against them as you can the dog can be removed and rehabilitated and given the chance of a better life with a responsible owner.
How do they treat the dog ? Is there a case for neglect etc ? Do they leave him/her tied out outside a lot, do they look after it / feed it well etc.
If you dont get any joy reporting them for allowing the dog to be out of control, is their maybe a case to have it removed due to neglect ?
I'm not suggesting you use that approach if there is no case there, but if there is it may be an option.
Good luck.
