Hi all, I have had my dog Declared Dangerous by Moreton Bay Regional Council for biting my attacker in my rural house yard. Boo Boo Bear (my 6.5 yo boxer/mastiff male) only bit on command and I only commanded his help when I could see no other solution to saving my life and the life of my house mate. Full story available upon request, I even audio recorded the attack, Proving that we acted in self defense against a trespass with intent, forced entry, breech of the peace, terrorism etc.

Boo Boo's punishment, for doing what any kanine would do in this situation, is life imprisonment, nutering and sighnage. If I can not afford all of this they will take him away for destruction.
I had Boo Boo independently temperment assessed and he was not considered dangerous by the assessor, infact the internationally renowned dog trainer/assessor admitted that every single dog would bite the attacker under these circumstances..
Does this mean that all dogs should be considered dangerous and treated accordingly?
He has never bitten before and he would only bite again if I was under vicious attack, note 3 large guard dogs were present this day and this did not stop the man jumping a padlocked gate after being told not to, resisting detainment and removal, instigating an altercation with two more men ready to jump over my gate and join in aswell. I was in fear of my life and yet they walked away with nothing more than a bloody ankle.
If you have a dog, be assured your dog would also want to chew on the ankle of someone who had entered your yard with the actions of harming you. Your dog will also be deemed dangerous for saving your life and your property.
Has the world gone mad?
Do I need to tie my dogs up before picking up the chainsaw in self defense.
Now if your dog barks and scares someone he can be "declared menacing" with similar restrictions.
Just for letting you know someone is there, at your house, uninvited. My dog barked at a policeman and he was capsicum sprayed in the eyes the copper said I was lucky he did not shoot him. WTF?
Full transcript available of this police incident.
I have appealed council's decision ( internal review) and that was denied with the response the dog "Has Offended". So off to QCAT we go, I now have to go through the external review process, hopefully a judge will see the logic here.
What is the point of owning a dog if they are not allowed to do the one thing they are designed to do. Protect the master human or bark like a living doorbell.
Council told me that not all dogs that bite are declared dangerous, so why has mine been?
Is it because one of my attackers has an OAM? Which I will be appealing to the court to investigate further because I believe such a lowlife man should not be able to boast such a title.
Can OAM's be revoked? Is it safe to ask?
I have not even touched on how I was treated by the police and I am going through Victims of Crime to try and get some justice. I may not be able to afford justice and I find that unjust. Of course legal aid will not help with the cats and dogs act stuff and the free 15 min barrister was useless. I have had to study the criminal code and the Animal Management Cats and dogs act 2008, understand it and try to put my case together while suffering from extreme emotional trauma (PTSD), mental health issues, homelessness, poverty and abuse. Adaptogen herbs are helping with my high stress symptoms, we can talk about this in another thread.
Has anyone else had a similar dog v council scenario?
How did it end up?
Any lawyers in the house? I could keep you employed for years! Pro bono!
Save Boo Boo Bear and dogs everywhere!
