So true about the things little dogs do that we find cute, but in a big dog, not so cute. My GSD and retriever know that jumping up on people is not acceptable. Skip, my latest addition does it all the time and since he's small I think it's cute and allow it. Kasey & Doc look at me as if to say, "What the heck??".
(I'm a bad mom )

Chille is such a cutie. You already know that I think your Dobie is handsome. I love the look of a well muscled dog.

@Willow-bummer for your sister! Did the bite break skin??

yeah,she had stitches,and a jab :(
was over food agression,both rotties are rescues,and she had to get in the middle i guess,so the eldest didn't get bitten by the new one,
she spoke to the rescue and they said she had to come back,and
have some training and assements done,i think it's a bit off that
this was not done already,what if there had been a young child there.
thankfully her children are all grown up.
she sent me a picture via phone,and her leg looks pretty bad,she
is finding it a little difficult to walk which is also interfering with
the fact that the antibiotics are *cough cough* working.

Yikes. Sounds like what they classify a level 4 (maybe even a 5) bite here in the states. Usually spells doom for the dog if Animal Control gets in on it. I hope your sister feels better soon.

One bite usually will not have a dog killed. They have to do it again and then they might. They either label the dog dangerous after the first bite or the 2nd, I'm not sure which. I know that if the dog attacks again once labeled dangerous, they will put it down.
You should get your sister to post a 'watch dog' sign on her property in a obvious and easily seen place. This will protect her and the dog legally. I have one in my kitchen window. It lets people know that if they enter on/in the property, it is on their own risk and they know there is a possibility of a bite. They cannot sue you if the dog bites them on your posted property.
My sign is up more so to just be safe rather than that he will bite. He doesn't like people and would rather keep his distance unless cornered and provoked. He is good on a leash and I always keep him at my side, so him biting someone on walks is not going to happen.
Attacking and/or killing other pets will also label him dangerous and after that, you have to keep him contained.

I also believe your sister's Rottie did not attack her on purpose. Sounds more like she was in the way and once a dog is in that state of mind, it is all the same what he bites. You should never get in between dogs who are fighting.
I have been in between my dog fighting off another dog and he got me by accident, but it is very hard to get any dog over 50lbs off each other alone. I was able to get my dog to chill long enough to pull the other up and away. At that point, Kohaku didn't see it as after him and he walked off. The other dog was still growling, I dragged it out the yard and tied it to a tree while we waited for animal control. I was walking my dog out into the yard on a leash when the other dog went for him.

I'm still laughing at what doggyhog said about the poodle being a doberman in drag...LOL.

I'm sorry about your sister though, that had to hurt...

thanks,she's feeling better.
i guess two rescue dogs that have been neglected,and a probable
shortage of food,marks for life.
i'm not sure if she will hear about what happens for the future of the dog,
she's going to stay a one dog household now.

We had some next door neighbors a long time ago who had a collie that lived outside year round. They put a sign on the gate "beware of dog. Will bite." This was done because she was teased by boys in the neighborhood. She didn't like boys or men. I was a little afraid of her at first (I was 11 years old at the time) but she was never anything but gentle around me. I was friends with the neighbors' daughter and we used to love camping in our backyards. I always wanted to camp in their yard because there was no way Mittens would let anyone near us.

Your dogs are so cute!

It's odd to me how they can be: we have a family friend that has a chihuahua named Gucci. Now, gucci is pretty vicious around everyone but me! I don't like dogs much, but whenever I'm over she's always trying to jump on my lap, or trying to get me to play with her. She hates my sister, though, and my sister loves dogs. Gucci bit her once, actually. It's odd.
