    This also happened to me with a Rottweiler down a road...It had been barking and then broke it's chain and started chasing me and my horse. The owners never came out to call it back until I decided It wasn't gonna bite my horse. I turned around and we charged that dog. Let me tell you that it went home yelping in fear from having us come at him at a gallop! And then surprise! The owners raced out of their house to ''save'' their dog!
