sorry to read about this unfortunate incident John. I don't get it..... this is just insane. How can animal control return that dog? How come the police are not involved?
I totally feel for you. I hope that your neighbor's dog is branded as 'dangerous' and never gets to go out without supervision and a muzzle. Little consolation to Garth. Poor guy!

No, i dont advocate animal cruelty or violence, but something needs to be done about this particular animal, the police should be involved, and the dog should be detained and properly taken care of, where i grew up, these dogs were put down...
This owner had better not walk away from this without an empty pocket, that poor dog....i am so sorry to hear about this, i have always loves animals, and this just breaks my heart....i hope that owner never lives this down, freaking lazy people halfassing their jobs...
I'm so sorry that you have to deal with a terrible owner who fails to properly train and provide productive outlets for their animals high energy personality. This is a sad but too common story.
I actually started crying looking at the second set of pictures.
I hope Garth heals quickly and something is done with Jason's Pitbul.

That included the neighbor's dog that lived 1/2 mile away, came over here, and wouldn't let me out my own back door some years ago. It also included several other dogs that have come through my yard over the years and terrorized my own dogs, cats, yard birds, goats (at the time), etc. I have an electric fence, but they still chased them from the other side.
Your neighbor is lucky I'm not living next door to him. The "dangerous dog" would already be dead. Kind of late after the fact now and you have mounding vet bills. So sue him for your vet bills. You have photos. Go get him.
I hate that vicious dog just looking at it. I am so sorry for you and my heart and love goes out to you and your sweet dog. I hope that your dog has a full recovery. I say get that vicious dog taken care of and gotten rid of, even if you have to do it yourself because that dog also poses a threat to you and your family, not just your dog, which I understand fully as an animal owner myself is also family as well.
I also say sue the owners of that thing. You shouldn't have to pick up the vet bill.
My best wishes go out to you and your lovely dog again and always.
