I calmly tied my dog to the mail box and told the guy, "Here, let me show you how to make your dog behave" and walked toward him. The guy was actually expecting me to do something with his dog, and certainly didn't expect the kick in the back of his leg that crumbled him to the ground. He made an attempt to get up, and realized that it was not conducive to his health to try any further. I told him that he is welcome to call the police and swear a complaint of assault against me, and I will swear a complaint of animal abuse. He made the right choice and did nothing.

I helped him up and we chatted for awhile. I saw in him a person who was frustrated and not cruel. I ended up helping him with training his dog over the next few months and he and his dog wound up with a really good bond. He was the most apologetic and sincere person I've ever met.

I would not hesitate to intercede on behalf of another dog again.
Great story! That was pretty touching. Good start to my day.

I agree with you 100%... However this kid had no feelings of remorse... He lived at the house the dog lived and after the incident never even went to the vet'* to check on the dog. And just got out of jail that day for killing a goose downtown.. He is sick minded.. And as Venom mentioned, these tendencies will just escalate into hurting people
