So sorry that things didn't work out. Totally understandable that you're feeling nervous having her around other dogs.

It could well be that she may have reacted differently, if she had been off-lead, too. That is something the rescue place should have assessed before putting her up for adoption.

Does this mean, though, that you will be keeping her until a new home is found, sort of be her foster carer?

Sorry to hear 😕 I hate to say this but it’s their fault not yours. It should be second nature for any dog owner to keep their dog close or on a lead, when other dogs are around.

So true, especially when another dog is being kept on a lead then any free running dog should be called away as this would only create a tense situation. Unfortunately, I have heard the "its ok, my dog is fine with other dogs" or the "he only wants to play" excuse far too often..

My ideal dog walk is one where I don't have to interact with other dogs! Some people seem to have this weird thought that there dog MUST meet every dog they see. Lost count of the times I have been playing games with my dogs to all of a sudden have a strangers dog I have to entertain because its ran over away from its owner.

I agree all dogs should be on a lead unless in a dog park, there’s a couple by us now & it’s a great idea!
I love dogs, I’ve never bothered about walking past any dog not on a leash until my son was born and I went a walk with him in his new pram, dogs are curious and they want to sniff everything but the amount of dog owners shouting ‘oh he’s fine won’t hurt a fly’ as their pony sized dog is trying to sniff my precious newborn.
Even walking with my now 3 yr old I still get nervous when dogs run up to us
150l
Apistogramma Hongsloi (Basil & Bertha), Ember Tetras, Sulawesi & Nerite snail, Pygmy Cory & fry (C Hastatus), Oto’s, emerald eyes, 2 Honey Gouramis (Sam & Dean), Ghost Shrimp & not forgetting the 3 orphaned mosquito raspboras

Dog park *shudder* nah no thanks! Give me a nice woodland, river or national park etc. Much more fun n!

With children though I wished all parents shared your caution with there children. One of my dogs is a Rough Collie (Lassie dog) and we have had times when children would just come straight up to her as we are walking and just go straight into hugging her and calling her a Lion. I always tell the child off when they do that (Sometimes the parents react badly to that!!) but its just dangerous. Luckily my dog absolutely loves humans big and small and takes it all in her stride, but you can't say the same about every dog, you just don't know.

That said, I love it when a child will come up to us and ASK if they can stroke her. Its great for a child to have interaction with a dog and I think its this interaction that is something lacking now-a-days with kids.

Like you, stuaz, I've told kids off before for simply hugging/stroking our dog without asking. I know she is placid but she is also an old girl with arthritis and doesn't want certain areas to be touched.

If the kids ask and/or the parents ask on the kids behalf, then its no problem. Our Lily loves a little stroke behind her ears.

Thanks for the response's, we are currently only fostering her Ive been in touch with the rescue place and told them I would rather she stay with us till another foster can be found as don't want her going to kennels, shes a really anxious dog gets so nervous when iam not around, she has pooped a few times in the house when I have had to drop son at nursery which takes 15mins. As stated I am nervous about taking her and when Im working there is no one to take her out either and its not fair on her.
