I’m looking to get some help in identifying or reaching a dog owner whose dog attacked my dog in the Grant Park dog “bark” park on 12/20/19 around 2:30 pm. Unfortunately, I didn’t think at the time to get the owner’s picture or dog’s picture- it all happened so fast.

The dog was tall and large, mixed breed, I believe light brown and white colors. The owner was a middle aged Caucasian male with light brown or dark blond hair, stated his name was “Sean”. He immediately left after the attack, and I believe he gave me a fake phone number when I ran after him to confront him after making sure my dog was stable.

Pictures attached of my puppy’s injuries. Laceration and puncture to the face and inside of her right upper jaw, puncture to her left facial bone so now she gets air under the skin of her snout when she exhales through her nose. Not to mention various other scrapes and cuts to her paw pads, legs, etc.

If anyone knows this person or was there that day and can provide more info, please contact me at (314) 960-4762. Thank you

Hi SLDogPAC, I'm a Northwestern student doing a couple of projects concerned with the South Loop. The first one is about the development projects and residents' thoughts regarding these projects.

The second is about the reckless motorcyclists who have been causing issues in the South Loop recently.

I'd love to be able to speak with some of you!

Thank you so much!

Re: UPDATE I just received a phone call from HomeAgain (microchip agency) stating that a Good Samaritan sighted a dog who looks like Cait by our vet facility Burnham Park (1025 S State St). It seems like she made her way back home but is still wandering the south loop area! Pls lookout for her!!

Guess who’s back again? Cait’s back again!! Thank you SO very much to everyone who has messaged me, shared my posts, given me support, and words of encouragement. I’m proud to say that Cait is back home and safe! She made her way back to where she escaped which was in front of my apartment!! Like all dogs, she’s pretty smart. She seemed to have gotten grazed by a car and is limping. In addition, her paw pads are torn up with some abrasions. Thankfully it’s nothing too bad. The vet called her “a lucky one” and I can’t agree more. I am so relieved! Here’s a pic of her post vet appointment

If you find yourself indoors on this beautiful day, tune in to ESPN2 to see highlights of several dog sports with dogs competing at the highest levels. I personally compete in Dog Agility and find it to be "the most fun you can have with your dog", a quote attributed to my first agility instructor Stacey at Hawk City K9. She was certainly right about that! 12 years later and still THE most fun! -pam from the South Loop Dog Park Action Cooperative (SLDogPAC). I'd be happy to tell you all about it 🙂Today is ESPN Dog Day—so many fun things to watch! ... See MoreSee Less

Grant Bark Park during Lollapalooza - per the Chicago Park District:

Here are the dates for Lolla closure.
· Dog Park access will be CLOSED during the show days. 8/1-8/4

Edit: We forwarded the comments below to the park supervisor and she contacted the CPD permits department to clear things up -> "They addressed it, you can access it today. It will be closed for the festival 8/1 – 8/4". So at least for the rest of the day, it should be open.

Of course their sign has the wrong dates on it again this year. 🙄

I tried going today and they turned me away, told me the park was already closed...

the park was still closed yesterday (Monday)..

I read a post yesterday about a toddler that was accidentally knocked down by a dog in the dog park. Apparently no injuries! Children like to run around and dogs being dogs could obviously get excited and chase and knock down or worse. Any thoughts on rules about allowing children? Dogs need their space and that doesn’t always mean the children are always safe. ... See MoreSee Less

There is a sign of Rules and Regulations posted at each DFA, one of which states "Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult; younger children must be closely supervised." There is also common sense. The issue of children in DFAs comes up from time to time/ We have had some issues at Fred Anderson Park Dog Park a few times with unsupervised children who were not members of families with dogs at the dog park (nor accompanied by adults) who were drawn to the water features. One young boy was trying to dominate the dogs trying to approach the water feature in the large dog area by rushing at and spitting at them. All we can do (DFA patrons as well as us) is try to educate the uneducated... Please speak up (simply about dog behavior, prey drive, etc. - it will cause less strife than if you bring up parenting choices) for the safety of all.

  1. Bill, we forwarded your comment to the Chicago Park District for advice and their recommendation is yes – call 911.

    First line is to call 911 if you feel threatened. We have a major issue with dogs off leash at this park. Security and myself deal with this ongoing issue. I will notify our CPD security but they should call 911 immediately.

    Note that Roosevelt Park is not a city-sanctioned off-leash dog area!

  2. I was confronted by a thug in the dog park at Roosevelt Road today. Muscle bound thug, his dogs had nothing to do with him. We were talking, at his invitation, about American football, and how the players of that sport do or do not deserve medical payments for their injuries on the field. I insist they do and I am entitled to my opinion. He insists I have no right to an opinion since he played for Penn State.

    He became very threatening to me with his size and when that didn’t work he insulted my wife. I saw this quickly escalating situation was going to end in violence, so we left.

    I restrained myself, and I wonder if there is a way of banning someone from the park. This man was clearly looking for a fight. Should I call the police?
