Almost bitten by a dog

Ok, so had a run in with a Rottweiler today, I was quite lucky in that I could have suffered quite a nasty bite to the leg - would have meant no squatting for a while for sure - (this was also the first thing that came to my mind )

Anyway, I have come home to find that the little (big) bugger has actually broken the skin on my hamstring a bit above the knee. Not enough to draw blood, but enough to cause a nice bit of bruising and definite breaking of the skin.

Do I need to get seen and given any jabs or anything? I hear that there's quite a lot of nasty stuff living on the teeth of dogs, and kind of dont want my leg to drop off.

I was wearing trousers at the time, maybe this has protected me?

    I would. Nip off to your local A&E. It's only a jab.

    See if you can arrange for the authorities to have the dog shot. Don't want vicious b@stards like that knocking about.

    As far as I know, forgiveness is for the benefit of the person doing the forgiving, not the one being forgiven

    You'll definately need a tetanus jab if you havent had one in the last 10 yrs and the incident needs reporting could be a small child next time

    You need a tetanus jab mate. A&E or your GP can do it but it needs to be asap really. If you want to get the police involved just bear in mind that unless it happened in a public place, or a private place where the dog was not allowed to be, then there is no offence.

    cheers..

    why did the dog attack you?
    was you provoking it?

    or has the missus bought it cause you keep going home to late at night and she has trained the dog to see you as an intruder?

    I came across the dog as part of my job as a cop, visiting a fairly unsavory address. I walked on to the dogs property, and I accept that they are a very protective breed. He looked very angry, and I honestly thought I could have come off a lot worse than I did.

    As Steve says, due to where it happened there is no offence as far as the law is concerned, but to be quite honest, even if there was I wouldn't want anything done as I love animals to much to have one killed after doing what is only it's natural behavior.
