I was looking out at chickens in the snow(well-on the shoveled area anyhow) and a coopers hawk dive bombed them(not really concerned with coopers) and flew away. so I go out to chicken count(all fine) and while I am out with my 2 chicken friendly dogs Bella the new neighbors gsd(who is a screamer barker and quite hyper) came from out of no where(she lives across the street and I was told already had a fractured leg as a pup from chasing car-smart owner) doing her bella bark/scream at the last minute at MY gsd, who was stunned and just stood there. my other dog, a 40 lb. mutt, is fine with other dogs (unless theres a disagreement then he sticks his nosey nose in) but he tore after her barking. towards the street they both go with me screaming "axle-no street" and the neighbor dog tears across the street and axle(my dog) stopped right at the edge of our wood fence line(10' from street). I don't know if this has effectively scared bella from future invasions but I was so proud of axle for not going in street(as I have tried to train them). I immediately called neighbor and told him and promptly hung up (to show my distaste for such an event) anyhow-people HAVE to realize that a dog can be like carrying a loaded gun. the OWNERS are at fault but that dog could have caused damage for all I know. grrrrr.
