        They may be with people they know but they are vicious with strangers who have every right to use the public roads.

        “pack mentality” is an instinctive response. those dogs know you, they are gentle with YOU. do not DOUBT their instinctive nature nor th verifiable words of th victim.

        Dogs running loose have a different mental state than dogs Inside home. A pack mentality takes over any person or an animal walking or running is something to be chased large dogs like Danes Can cause harm even when they don’t mean to. Those dogs cause physical harm the person they attacked was smaller then even one of those dogs.

    Yes there are; they knock over my trash cans and scatter garbage across my yard often. They have also frightened my kids several times.

    I meant to include that I live on Frontier Circle.

    On one side I think “really??” and on the other side I’m happy to live in such a quiet little town.
    Carry on.

    When dogs that large get into a pack mentality mindset, they are not gentle, they are aggressive. I have bite marks to prove it.

    • So far no law official is taking this serious, which is making me so angry. Maybe I need to go to a more public forum to get Summerville officials to protect their citizens. on January 24, 2019 at 7:03 pm

      Summerville officials don’t seem to take dog bites from loose dogs very seriously
      The owners of the Great Danes have no record of rabies vaccinations We will see if animal control, the sherif if or police follow up to enforce the laws made to keep people safe
      I should not have to go to a civil lawsuit

    Rather than listening to the garbage that the news continuously posts, perhaps get both sides. This is garbage. There’s so much more that obviously won’t be shared anytime soon.

      Hanna, what do you mean?
