.The dog bit me on the arm and hand . I am a nurse and because my hands are in and out of water I was advised by the practice nurse not to work . It was also very painful.
I had previously walked with the keeper of the dog with her own dog. She loomed after her daughters dog twice a week and she had advised me that there had been some sort of incident with this dog and a family member. It was bred as a working dog. She said that it was going to be neutered and she hoped that he would settle down (not verbatum) . The dog came running across a large meadow. She and another person did not see what happened initially. The dog was snapping at my heals and leapt 5ft into the air and locked on my puppy,s feet. There is a large notice at the entance to the field stating that dogs must be kept u der control .She had no co trol of the dog .When she evebtually arrived the dog took no notice of her. I feared for my safety and that of my dog Why should I be finzncially out of pocket
Are you saying that under English law your dog can bite a person who then cannot work and nobody is liable

What would you suggest I do when I go tothe small clains court
Do you think I have a chance. The defendant initially agreedto pay the vets fees. I have an email stating that she would send a cheque which I have never received
I asked if you thought i had a chance
