How come you were so close to the dog,that it could bite you? Probably went to stroke it,and it was scared.Common sense to give it a wide berth really as you pass.

Oh for heavens sake. The dog was secured, meaning the allegedly bitten person must have approached the dog or walked really close, which is stupid. I have seen many people approach dogs tied up outside shops to stroke them, not knowing if the dog was nervous or friendly. Tied up dogs often feel threatened as they cannot escape the approaching stranger.
When will people learn. Stop blaming the dog. I do however believe it is not wise to leave dogs outside shops, especially pure breds as they can be stolen. The police have limited resources and tracking down a small terrier who nipped some idiots ankle because he or she tried to stroke it is plain ridiculous.

At last, someone sensible!
Small dogs are easily picked up and stolen, why leave them unattended? The terrier was probably hot as well which doesn't help. Quite often, I see dogs tied up outside Asda in Lancing, in full sunshine and with the automatic doors opening and closing next to them.
We're supposed to be a nation of dog lovers - I don't think so!

How do you know she approached the dog to stroke it? She might have just needed to get past it to get a trolley etc. It may have been placed very close to the door to enter and exit, leaving her no choice in the matter. Don't jump to conclusions when you don't have the facts.

Subsequent requests for proof of that ridiculous claim were met with silence after his lie was exposed.
