“New Bedford dogs owners: Don’t get mad when I pepper spray your dog! Put them on a leash!!!”


“Just a quick PSA for the people of the south end. These 2 dogs right here are my everything! Whenever I leave the house they are always on a leash! I have never “lost” them or had them run off.

In the past 6 months they have gone from friendly dogs to scared, nervous and aggressive outside. Why? Because we are constantly getting run up on by loose dogs!

So if you walk your dog on Valentine Street, Willard St, Woodlawn St., and all the other streets…put your dogs on a leash!!

Just because you think ‘Fluffy’ is good out in the front the house for 2 mins or ‘Fido’ will sit on the porch because you’re talking to your friend and not paying attention…think again! I am NO longer traumatizing my dogs and forcing their faces away so the loose dogs don’t get bit.

I’m NOT gonna run down the street with my dogs while you try to catch your dog. I AM DONE! So if you wanna trust Fido or let Fluffy out off leash then don’t expect me to pay your vet bills!! Don’t get mad when I pepper spray your dog! Put a leash on them and stop being lazy!” -Katie Martins.

  1. I’m with you! Just got two 3oz containers of mace. Tired of going to public places and having dogs running around loose and coming at me and my dog aggressively. It’s not the dogs fault but the ignorant owners who think the park is their own backyard and they can do what they want. Well now I’m ready and can blast them from 12-15 feet away. Can’t wait to teach these idiots a lesson. And if the owner comes at me they will get sprayed in the face also. Try me! I’m trigger happy! So if you go to Pope Park, Sawmill, Brooklawn or any other place besides your own yard you’ve been warned!
