“Dear PoPville,

Hoping someone might have some helpful info about two loose dogs in Park View! Around noon today, I was walking my dog in the 3500 block of Park Pl. NW (right across from the Soldiers’ Home) when we saw two medium-sized dogs running towards us, off-leash and no walker in sight, My dog (a small terrier) is not friendly with other dogs, so I tried to get her out of their line of vision, but they ran for us and started aggressively chasing, snarling, and biting her. A contractor at a nearby house ran out to help break up the fight and corralled the two dogs off to the side–not sure what happened to them after we walked away. My dog is shaken up and has a few cuts/bite marks, so if anybody has any information about these dogs, particularly regarding vaccines, I would be so, so grateful! I’m really not interested in anything other than making sure all the dogs are healthy. I can be reached by email at woodhouse.eg(at)gmail.com.

Descriptions of the dogs are as follows:

Medium-sized dog, white with grey/brown spots, possible pit mix, had a small cut on its nose. More aggressive of the two dogs.
Medium-sized grey/brown short-hair mix, pointy ears.”

    I live in the area, this is pretty scary since i also have a dog that doesn’t get along with other dogs.

    I wonder if the dogs got away while being off leash at Wangari garden. Usually people have their dogs off leash but are very cautious but you never know.

    Also, you can contact animal control: (202) 576-6664

    Small terriers are never friendly with other dogs. They’re always jerks toward my dog :/

    Unfortunately, someone who allows their dogs to run loose around the neighborhood and terrorize other dogs is probably not going to be responsive to the OP’s pleas.

    OP, you will probably be stuck having to get your dog treated for possible rabies exposure. This thread might be helpful, although in this case it was the human who was bitten by a loose dog:
