  1. Dogs must be on leashes at all times. It is the law so that incidences like this one do not happen. I wish the injured a complete recovery.

  2. The Motel on the corner of 5th and Route 9 is full of low lives and criminals and drugs!! This is where the guy with the dog comes from.

    Since tent city was closed down this Motel is packed. Is it connected?

    Lakewood Police has to start focusing on this Motel.

    Did someone from the Motel cause the recent fire on that block?

    All I know is, that the abandoned house that was burned down was a hangout for the guys from the Motel. And it was where they sold drugs from. People were picking up bags from that abandoned house for weeks.

  3. This is not about a friendly dog. It’s about an irresponsible dog owner. His pet injured an elderly man and he fled like a coward instead of staying to help and take responsibility for his pet.

  4. Um thanx for telling us now after the house burned down. Did you notify law enforcement?

    Otherwise you raise a good point about the motel.

  5. TLS your title is misleading because it makes it seems like the dog assaulted the man when it sounds more like the dog was excited and jumped up probably to be petted. The dog probably inadvertently caused the elderly man to fall over. The problem is more the owner who has not trained/discouraged the dog from greeting people that way and the fact that the owner left the man instead of waiting for EMS.

  6. to #2 holy smokes: just a friendly dog, eh? lets see what u would say if u were an elderly man, knocked off ur feet , laying on the ground bloodied and injured , while the dog and his irresponsible owner run off into the night….!
