One day, on my mail route, I went to deliver a package. There were 2 guys in the yard raking leaves (they lived on another part of my route) and I asked if it was okay if I came in the fence and placed the package on the doorstep because there was a doberman in the yard with them (it lived next door) They said he was friendly, I even stopped to talk to the guys, and pet the doberman. Well, when I stood up to leave, I saw him tense up and bam he bit my arm, broke the skin and I have some scars to this day from it. They held him off so I could get back to my truck. The next day I was delivering a package on the next street over. I heard the fence rustling and looked up and there that dog was again. I guess he liked the taste of my blood!
Why does this have anything to do with a 2 legged dog? Well, this doberman had only 3 legs and he jumped over 4 fences to get to me that day!!
Scared the living crap out of me. Weeks later the people who owned the dog put up a six foot fence. He leaped over the 4 foot one with no problem. Just sailed over and landed on his one front leg. He was a fast sucker!! I think animals adapt better than people with their disabilities. It sure didn't keep this dog down one bit!
Everyone I tell this to laughs because he only had 3 legs and he still got me. They didn't see how freaking fast he was!!
