Beware of Dangerous Dogs Around the Burg'

This time of year more dogs are around and not always with their owner. If you see a dog running loose, look for warning signs of aggressive behavior. If you are ever cornered, first and foremost, do not panic.
Never run because that could trigger the dog to chase you. Stay put and try to talk to the pooch in a calming voice. You may look at it, but never stare. Face the dog or turn to the side to let it know you are not a threat, but never turn your back on one.
Dr. Pamela Reid with the ASPCA says before you try to pet any dog that is with an owner, ask if it is safe first.
