My feeling is that anyone who allows their dog to attack a guide dog must pay compensation to the charity who has to pay to train a new dog. That figure should be the cost of replacing the dog ie £50,000. I should also add that, because someone has to have a young dog replaced, someone on the waiting list would have to wait an extra couple of years for theirs.

I often wonder how the blind are treating their dogs. Just a thought.

Okay. we need an action we can take. This is very difficult to read these horrid things and nothing is being done. Is there a mayor to write to, an animal society, local television station?

As a Blind person myself in the process of acquiring one of these $45,000 Guide Dogs for myself, I am mordified at the thought that anyone would take it upon themselves to assault a Blind person or Their Guiding Eyes Guide Dog. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act....anyone who assaults an elderly, disabled, pregnant or blind person will be charged with "Felony" assault. It is imperitative that Law makers provide harsh penalities to anyone who assaults a Service Dog or any...

It is imperitative that Law makers provide harsh penalities to anyone who assaults a Service Dog or any person whose own animal attacks a Service Dogs of any kind. Someone who steals over $150 is charged with felony theft but a Guide Dog cost several thousand dollars and it should be a Felony. I am looking forwarding to getting my four legged Eyes and it would break my heart to lose my independency or to think that my dog would ever be assaulted....worse yet, that the Law will not do anything about it.

There are real monsters in the human race. From environmental destroyers to hunters to poachers to animal abusers and slaughterers, they are not human, they're sent to earth straight from hell.

I was always under the assumption that as working dogs they were tools and protected as such. I was very disappointed when my friend (no12) was attacked. Disgusted in our govt to be ignoring this issue.

Guide dogs are very important and need all the funding they can get to be trained. Wait until you here thin Dunne's Stores in the Republic of Ireland Has banned any Animal Welfare Charities from collecting in their stores and outside also.One of the Animal Charities is The Blind dogs charity. It is a disgrace and Dunne's will not answer countless calls about this. I am a volunteer for Animal Ark Ireland and we never got any help off Dunne's in any way but I am highly annoyed they are...
