Have you ever been bitten by a dog?
Yeah, but I was drunk and never called her back!
Yes an its a strange story,.., i was walking down the street 2 years ago at like 9pm and this weird ass dog started chasing me. It bit me, i hit it in the nose. It fell to the ground and i saw it was badly injurd so i brought it to the vet. He was starving, sick, etc. so i took him in. I love my dog
Yes, I then shot the dog in the back. Thank goodness I had my CC. That was a mean and vicous dog.
YES! LET'S BAN ALL DOGS!!
Worst first date ever.
Yes. Completely my fault. Put my hand between two playing dogs. The one who bit me was more upset after than I was. He had no bad intentions.
Peacefullife I'm glad to see a fellow pitbull owner/supporter. At my previous jobs (shelter and dog trainer) I requested to work solely with this breed. They truly are the best!
Also a human...
100% my fault. That's what I get for retrieving something edible from the mouth of a 140# dog! It may not be English, but dogs will clearly tell you they aren't happy with the situation before they bite. It may only be 1/4 second warning, but you'll be warned.
Define bitten. My dog when he was a puppy nipped me. It broke skin but i wouldn't consider that a bite...
I (playfully) bit a dog once.
But that wasn't the question, was it? ;)
Some people, i swear. Dont let your dog dominate you! If your dog bites people, it is the master, and you are the pack member. Need to know how dogs work people, jeez.
True survival story.
Only dog to ever bite me from aggression was a chihuahua. The owner laughed as I stood there bleeding a over the place. I smacked the dog (not hard) and the owner yelled at me! Worst dog owner ever!
Once at 5 by 2 dogs and then again by 3 when I was 10. Couldn't sit down for over a month. Bites were in places that they couldn't do stitches I was scared of big dogs for the longest time. Now I have 2 rots
Have you ever had your heart broken? Ban romance!
You mean they're.
I haven't but my mom has. She loves to run in the mornings, and one morning she was out for her daily run when a chihuahua came out of no where and started chasing her. She ran like hell to get away from it, but it got her and bit her calf. She still runs, but carries a stick with her now.
I've only been bitten by small breed dogs. The larger breeds have actually been the most behaved.
My pit bull has never bitten out of aggression. She bit me once while playing (again, 100% my fault), but immediately, without being asked, let go, stopped playing, & cowered - like she knew she had done something wrong. I've retrieved countless "food" objects from her mouth too.
No, but I've been bitten by several cats.
Seriously, who hasn't been bitten by a dog??? I've been bitten by cats, dogs, squirrels, mice, spiders, kids, lol, you name it... Weirdos who've never been bitten... :/
It was my fault. I was young(er) and dumb(er) than I am today.
Yes, but NEVER ever by a licensed pet.
;-) (homage to prior SOH polls)
Obviously we must now legislate dog control, as 57% of Americans have been bitten by the savages. Ban the sale of big dogs and everyone who is already in possession of a big dog must register with the state.
Squish, based on previous comments, I believe this to be sarcasm. :)
Yuk, yuk, yuk. ;) I heard that every time I took my shih tzu out and about, lol.
Also, I'd imagine if someone did breed a bulldog (assuming English bulldog) with a shih tzu it would NOT produce very attractive looking puppies. Yeesh.
43% OF PEOPLE HAVE NEVER HAD A CHILDHOOD!
I break out into a cold sweat and my heart racesnwhenever I encounter an unleashed. dog. I can still seenthat growling face charging at me when I was 7 years old. keep your dogs leashed please!
My dog lets flies land on his eyes and he doesn't even blink. He tiptoes when the grass is wet. I have NO worries whatsoever that he will bite me because I don't even think he understands danger. :p
Yes. An old cockers spaniel bit me on the face when I tried to give her a kiss goodbye. I don't really remember it.
Brrrrrr, are you honestly trying to say only big dogs bite and are therefore, savages?? That's a horrifically ignorant statement, if so.
I was 8 or 9, walkin' down an unfamiliar street, when I noticed a St. Bernard starin' at me. Immediately scared, I started to run (Big dummy!). I was chased and bitten in the back of my leg. Fortunately it was graze wounds, but I lost the whole pant leg off my britches! St. Bernard's STILL scare me!
Everyone who owns a big dog will be required to go through a "Dog safety class" as well.
No dogs in Mississippi?
Twice, my fault... both times I was play wrestling with family and the dogs thought it was a threat!
Yes but not hard and it was my fault for being a pain in the butt to the poor animal. I was young and didn't know how to treat a dog, I learned my lesson.
Twice that I remember, not counting many puppy bites or rough play bites with my own dogs. Once broke the skin, the other didn't but hurt worse and left a bite-shaped bruise. Ornery little yappy dogs. Bigger dogs tend to be more mellow and are easier to reason with.
I LOVE my toy Poodle!!! ???? We have always had small poodles, but I will admit that they are either super sweet, but protective or hateful as can be, so you have to be careful when selecting one.
Thought you might appreciate the bullshiht joke, hehe.
Several times, I work in the delivery business
Interestingly, I consider myself more of a cat person.
Annie what do you get when you breed a bulldog and a shih tzu?
Had a pit bull damn near tear my nose off after it lunged at my son. I had to break its neck to make it stop. Good old plastic surgery made it look like it never happened.
I've had so many pets. I don't worry about bites or scratches anymore. Nothing really serious, though.
Moose was a 35-lb. Cocker Spaniel and his lower spine was hurting. He tried to jump up on the waterbed and only made it halfway, with his hips hanging off. He was howling in pain as I reached to help him. He grabbed my hand - with his mouth, of course. Bite got infected. All turned out fine. :)
Once. It hurt.
