The author addressed the "physically resist" point in the comments:


And I tend to agree. People will ignore and ignore and ignore a little dog's warnings because "ohh, little Snookiewookies thinks he's a BIG dog, yes he does! Oh yes he does! Aren't you a big dog little snuggleswuggums, yes you are! OMG MY DOG JUST FSCKING BIT ME!" Obviously this is a rather gross generalization but you'd be amazed at how many times I've heard that exact exchange.
That makes a bit more sense of what they were trying to say. I went back and scanned and scanned the article looking for what you posted..........there was only ONE comment there this morning when I originally read it, LOL I'm glad they came back and clarified that a bit more, and also glad they mentioned how bad behavior in little dogs gets overlooked quite often.

It does say this though zoom:

Obviously that doesn't matter in this case somehow, LOL

I agree. There are sooo many things that happen to little dogs ALL the time. You'd be surprised if you only had big dogs. Even the difference between what people tried with my shelties versus my papillons is amazing and you can guarantee they didn't act the same way with my GSD. I've had people poke, prod, chase, corner, pick up (while still on a leash even!), grab at them, run at them barking and stomping their feet (wtf?), I could go on and on. Luckily my two have never bitten and I try my hardest to avoid these situations but they have yelped out before when people do something like that and startle them. I think if it was physically possible for a giant to exist and manhandle big dogs in the same way a lot of them would bite too. Heck I'd probably bite them.

Even dogs giving off CLEAR warnings often aren't respected and that's why a lot of these bites happen. Think about how much bigger people are to them. A giant stranger coming and looming over you and poking and prodding you is not going to be a happy experience for a lot of small dogs.

I was told that if something like that happened that you should tell the doctor it was barbed wire.

yes, that's luce, shroom, and my pasty white legs

i suspect that the tech required medical attention and then it became a mandatory dog bite report that ballooned from there.

people get bitten working in vet med. it happens. my boss was in the hospital for three days last year when she was bitten by an unconscious, dying dog. i've been bitten, though never severely. *shrug*

i'm confused as to why this is an issue though. it was a provoked bite by definition having happened in the veterinary hospital. provoked bites don't fall under the requirements for vicious dogs. maybe it's different there.

That's crazy. I'm not sure if in my state a vet could press charges for being bitten. I think its considered an occupational hazard or something.

The thing that gets me here is not whether or not the vet tech deserved it, not whether or not small dogs are more likely to bite (or why), its the provocation thing. Its the declaring a dog vicious that bit in (basically) self-defense, or at least, when provoked and frightened. This indicates a terrifying lack of understanding regarding animals on the part of the city. Basically, if a small dog biting in the vet clinic makes that dog vicious, then any bite, under any circumstances, must be "vicious" by their understanding. That is spectacularly unfair to dogs and owners.

but the vet/tech/hospital is not the one bringing suit.

and the state law does exempt dog bites in a veterinary setting, but the city of lafayette seems to think that state laws don't apply to them.
