18 months ago our daughter who is disabled was walking our dog past the local farm when a collie ran out aggressively barking and growling, our dog (who is in no way aggressive) barked back, defending our daughter, and as she called him back to her a second dog ran out and bit the end of his tail clean off, severing an artery in the process, he ended up with an operation with more of his tail being removed, and a bill of some 300€ and when we spoke initially to the farmer he admitted he had heard the barking and snarling, and gave us his insurance details, this proved to be a total waste of time, as when his insurance company asked him he said he knew nothing aboujt the incident, and as the only witness was our daughter there was no case to answer. We were left feeling very upset and out of pocket. Nobody at the time suggested the gendarmes, maybe we should have gone that route. Good luck.

To all those that posted on this article, our poor pup had to have the operation today, the vet said that his muscles had been torn,  so he as got stiches inside and out, but seems in better spirits now.

The owner of the dog saw the incident, and even had his young children with him, no apology nothing just walked away.

It is the gendarmes that you go to. The vet needs to write a statement, on his office note paper, as to what has happened and what the effects on your pet are. 

The gendarmes will tell you that they have broken the law - as in letting their dog loose - and that you can choose to pursue it through the court of have them go around and give them a warning.

It is good luck that nothing happened to your son.

You can ask your neighbour to pay bill but then they might say prove it. Without the dna from your pups wounds to be matched with neighbours dog you can't prove it. Mention it to your neighbours and request that they ke their dog in their garden.
