This Irish Setter was charging out of a backyard to come get me on my bicycle this morning, and ran right out in front of a truck. I doubt the driver ever saw him.
Irish Setters are not known for attacking people, but this one was behaving very aggressively. I just saw a large dog for a split second out of the corner of my eye, and realized that he was coming at me very hard and fast. Then I heard the thud. Why was a dog with a temperament like this loose in the yard?
All of the dogs I have met in Boulder (hundreds of them) have been very friendly and well behaved. Quite the opposite in Maryland. People don’t know how to handle their dogs here.
