We found out today that the dog that scared our big pa and caused him to fall is this dog. A Tibetan Mastiff and only 18 months old. He has moved in next door, into a house that has no backyard (at all) due to the block being sub divided. The backyard is literally a single carport. The owners are away all day at work, so this dog is not getting any attention and sitting all day in this carport. The owners make the dog wear a barking collar at night when they are home, so they don't like the barking but don't care during the day when they aren't there. A complaint must have been made because they mentioned that according to council it can't bark after 9pm!!!!! It bangs on the fence and jumps up which is what scared pa. It scared us too when it did that when we were there Sunday. While the owners don't fully believe that what happened to pa was the dogs fault, it did have a bark collar on today and they are trying to build something to keep it away from the fence. Personally we don't believe this dog should be living in the confines it is living in and with owners who aren't training it and giving it the time it needs. .
