ok so this really isn't a confession but more of I have a problem and you ladies are the most honest group of women on CM so....

I got new neighbors about a wk ago they have 3 viscious german shepards that will run up to the fence when someone walks by growl,snarl,throw their weight up against the fence whatever they can to try and get ya. we don't live in a subdivision but they are neighbors I take my kids out for a walk everyday but that has stopped bc I am afraid they will get out and one of my kids will get mauled, I just looked outside and guess what is in my yard yes these stupid mutts. I went outside to try to run them off bc our 2 dogs are in the back yard we have pitbulls but they are sweet they never bark at anyone but I dont want these evil mutts to start a fight and make my dogs look like the problem that tends to happen it's always the pitbull's fault. So I go out to try and make them leave one starts running toward me growling with the other 2 right behind it they are currently tearing my garbage out all over the yard , i witnessed one take a dump in my yard. I called the cops it will take a while for them to get here i am sure , called my dh he is on his way he sais when he gets here if they are still in the yard he's shooting them or if their owner has already got them he is going over there to have a talk with the owner. Should I let my dh shoot the dogs? should I let the police handle it, should I go yell at the wife I really miss taking my kids out . I don't know what to do ....

 

as I sit here and watch these mutts and wait for the cops or dh the biggest of the three is now jumping up on my jeep....

Well thank you everyone for your advice... I had to go and give Boo a bottle as I was sitting here feeding her I heard 3 shots, Dh stopped by his dad's house got a deer rifle stopped at the beginning of our driveway shot the dogs. then got back in his truck called me and said There now you can have your walks,kid's can play outside and I can work in peace. He also said when the neighbor's come over tell them he will be home by 6:30 and shut the door in their face. DH is a country boy, kind of matter of fact and right to the point. I said to him don't you think that was a little extreme hon? He said yes but I have to work I can't be having to come home from work day in and day out to chase dogs away so My kids and wife can be out in MY yard. Oh well guess the neighbors will be pissed .... Cop still hasn't showed up.

Well I spoke with the neighbors I seen the truck pull up I said excuse me flagged them over showed them the pics and video on my phone and my jeep, they apologized like over and over the wife explained that her adult step daughter kind of pawned the dogs off on them and they just didn't have the heart to put them down. The husband told me to get the scratches on the jeep taken care of and bring him the bill that was it, some of you ladies had me ready for a fight but they said they would have done the same if they were my dh. apologized again I asked if their daughter got mad about the dogs and the lady said she and her dh would type up statements saying the dogs were vicious but she also didnt think the daughter cared that much,I would have stayed outside to chitchat but boo was getting fussy So I came back in oh and as I was walking in the husband asked if I thought my dh could give him a qoute to start taking care of their yard. Sry no drama ladies

Let the police handle it. Your husband does have the right to shoot them though. They are on your property destroying things. The owners should keep them within their own yard.

I agree, I am not like a dog hater or anything but i have a feeling just by looking at the neighbors they are not very responsible dog owners

Don't shoot the dogs. Let the cops handle it.

Shooting the dogs sounds a bit extreme. I would let the cops handle the issue.

 country boy did what he had to do,, cops weren't going to do jack, just temporary salve the problem, then bum back to the normal drama, then again and again. So your DH did the right thing..good for him
