We got a German Sheperd pup 10 months ago.. We installed an invisble fence to keep him in. he recognizes his barriers and does not cross them. Even on a leash he still does want to go near them. The neighbrs kids were playing ball and hit it into the yard, the 10 yr old came in to get it and when the pup approached him instead of leaviing or standing still he started jumping up and down. The kid ended up with a single puncture just above his knee. The med cost was $599. The parents say their kid did nothing wrong and they are not at fault. They knew of the pup because he ( the neighbor) once came over and apologized for his dog trespassing to play with the pup.The child was well inside the barrier and could have left. The dog would not have followed or pursued. The pup has no previous incidents of biting or chasing. They also made a verbal agreement to take care of the incident at first, which was witnessed to by 4 people.. then she called and changd her mind.
