    If Your Dog Happens To Bite Someone. Yeah The Person Would Probably Get Really Upset @ You And That's Perfectly Understandable. But If A Dog Does Bite Someone And You Do Nothing About It. Then You Would Probably End Up In The Dog Pound Or In Other Words, You Would Be In Doggy Poo Poo. Lol. Just Try And Do As Much As You Can To Help The Person That Was Bit. For Example:
    - You Could Pay Half Of The Hospitol Or Healing Bills
    - You Could Bring The Person Flowers
    - You Could Ask Them If They Would Like To Go Out To Dinner After They Are Healed.

    Just Some Ideas To Take Into Thought. Good Luck.

    "I had a young woman come up to try to pet Jesse, even though I told her not to because Jesse wasn't always friendly. The woman kept coming and said she loved dogs and they loved her. I tried to hold Jesse back, but she lunged "

    In my opinion , this woman only has herself to blame...you told her not to approach your dog and she continued regardless of your warning. I know a dog shouldn't bite but it seems to me strangers should listen to dog owners too.

    I know, but I also know the law doesn't work that way. We were both at fault. I should have been more assertive--my weakness is that I'm always hoping that Jesse will be friendly "this time." She's basically friendly 2 out of 10 times, and it really has nothing to do with the person or the way they approach her anymore. When she was younger, I could always tell how she would react based on the person, his or her tone of voice and body language, but now, it seems to be random.

    I am definitely keeping Jesse away from everybody now.

    Once bitten, twice shy!

    That's Right. It Also Depends On Your Tone Of Voice When You Tell The Person That They Should Stay Away. Because If You Tell Them In A Calm And Kinda Mumbled Way They Will Think That Since You Are Sweet Then Your Dog Has To Be As Nice As You Are. But However If You Talk In A Stern Voice They Probably Will Back Of. If The Person Still Starts To Approch Your Dog Then You Should Tell Them To Back Of And Remind Them Again That The Dog Has Not Been In A Very Good Mood Lately!!!!:)
