3 Dangerous Dogs In La Poza Beach - On Sunday 28th we went for a walk with my little dog(10 months) in La Poza beach in Todos Santos, we saw a lady walking with 3 dogs, but since we saw they had an owner we thought "no problem". When we got closer to them one of the dogs attacked my puppy and the other two came to help too! My puppy Chica was bitten really bad (3 big holes), today she is at the vet (Dr. David) with a huge infection in her back paw which was transmitted by saliva, she wouldn't be able to walk normal because of the pain and the huge "ball". I do not pretend to accuse anyone i just want to warn other people who walk their dogs there! And please, please if you do not have well trained dogs or do not know how to control them just try to keep them in a leash. Wish you all a great day. Isa & Chica. - Isa Alor, Todos Santos
