An OT followup on DJ's dog tale. It's a dog day. I was having lunch today when a knock on my door occurred. My two dogs a beagle/lab mix and an old bulldog(12 y/o) I adopted from shelter a week ago went running to door barking. I thought it was my handyman, but it was a Sheriff's officer. I opened the storm door, slipped out, and held it shut behind me so dogs could not push out.

The officer pulled his gun, pointed it at Milly the beagle and said he would shoot both dogs if they did not stop barking "aggressively" at him . They were in my house and behind door.

Then he said a neighbor called because of a gold dog in her yard

in past half hour and she thought it might be mine. I told him they had been with me in house all day, does he have a picture? Nope. Told me to contain my dogs or he would charge me with a violation. Then told me if he had to come back again and dogs barked aggressively, they would be dead. Huh? They are 60 and 80 pounds with big dog barks. This could have gone real bad.

I guess I and dog are guilty without any evidence. --216.23.xxx.xx

That's terrible Lana! I understand the Sheriff needing to protect himself, but as soon as the storm door was shut the gun should have been put away and his tone was unacceptable in any manner. I'd be tempted to file a complaint about the "threats" made...wonder if he would deny that. --99.92.xxx.xxx

No wonder the dogs were barking aggressively at him. I doubt he would have the right to shoot them just for barking.

You mentioned the bull dog and it reminded me of something. When I was delivering doors and windows to a guy in the smokey mountains, I went to knock on his door and the door was wide open. I knocked on the door frame and then I heard a dog barking and running aggressively up the stairs. I thought, OH S$%# but decided to just stand there and wait for the dog. It was an English Bull Dog. I love them. As soon as he got to the door, he slammed on the brakes and sat down. Of coarse I had to pet him. I just knew I was lunch though. The owner said that he has ran right through the screen door before. --73.120.xx.xxx

Wish I had recorded the episode. He was a very mad man with a gun. Hostile from beginning to end. Can't say for sure my dog is innocent because she is a very smart girl. As soon as she saw gun, she laid down and shut up. I am restarting GPS boundary with a shock collar to retrain her, just in case. But, I was left very shook. I was standing in front of the glass storm blocking him from dogs, so I would have gone first. The dogs were alerting me, and doing nothing wrong. --216.23.xxx.xx

He should be seriously reprimanded!!

Glad there was no "accidental" (stupid) discharge, & you are OK. --68.229.xxx.xxx

the real question is who called the sheriff? Someone doesn't like you and perhaps they have some sway w/ his supervisor and he was po'd for being sent to your address. --24.194.xxx.xx

Reminds me of one of the inspectors from the inner city I encountered in the four units inspected by the State. He kicked toilets to see if they were loose and of course they were after that. Same personality.

OK, this guy is a time bomb and he is going to do something bad but not to you. I would NOT do the shock collar thing because it's not obvious and someone could just shoot the loose dog walking around not realizing there is a shock collar. I would fence in a part of the yard now with chain link six foot. Big dogs have killed and maimed quite a few people lately and probably he has seen that so he wants to put fear in you. Takes awhile for the dog to learn the shock collar too. I would tell my neighbor what the complaint brought to your door so be more accurate next time as innocents could be shot. --108.24.xx.xx

Evidently the George Floyd incident hasn't curbed his demeanor in the least. I know of at least 2 young men that have been shot in our county for resisting so you were right to comply however I would report the hostile manner in which he addressed you. --216.126.xx.xxx

You always have a right to calmly ask an officer for his supervisor to come by. Even the worst officers tend to calm down when that happens.

In your case, I would be calling the Sheriff's office and asking for an appointment with the Sheriff. I'm sure he will be concerned with the firearm being removed from the holster and pointed in your general direction. In today's world, they are hyper sensitive to negative press. --209.205.xxx.xx

I like dogs, but not other people's dogs. With my previous work, I would refuse to go in houses when there were dogs unrestrained. I've been bitten, had clothes ruined, been scratched, jumped on, humped on, etc. I don't think people's dogs are "cute" when they do this and I don't feel it's my responsibility to "let him get used to you" while attempting to maul me. So I get it.

Even though he is outside dogs can easily push through a storm door. Perhaps he went a bit overboard but you should have closed the inside door.

As Sparky said, get the Ring doorbell. This would have been a good video for this sheriff's boss to see.

Give your doggos some pets for me. Good dogs, defending Mama. Any idiot that thinks he needs to draw his gun so quickly has a problem. --70.92.xxx.xxx

Start a new thread with the results of your appointment. I understand the officer may have been intimidated and clearly, I wasn't there. But to threaten them and essentially you, if he has to return is not called for. Maybe he was just bit on the last call? --73.230.xxx.xx

Possible he is angry at people who own dogs that size. But that is your business and these days a dog that size can save our lives from some of the thieves running around. If I hear my five pound Maltese alert during the night I get up and look. His previous owner, an attorney, told me that he is very good at alerting to something that is legitimately not good, so if he does that, get up and look. Little JJ, so cute too. --108.24.xx.xx

Law enforcement is not a good career choice for a person who is afraid of dogs.

I support my local police, but I think I would file a complaint so that person can get some counseling and maybe be put through forearms training again. --76.178.xxx.xxx
