I had a similar experience with an idiot neighbor and her dog about 20 years back.
I just got 6 month old Samantha as a rescue dog, an English Pointer/Pitbull mix that didn't look look pitbull at all. She had never been socialized with PEOPLE, and going into playstance went misunderstood by the first three families who tried adopting her. Scared the devil out of my wife first time she wanted to play with her, snarling, growling, and plain looking mean.
Took her into the field next to the house for training, and the neighbors dog, still on her leash and being held, pinned Sam to the ground, and the woman on the other end of the leash thought it was funny! I didn't. I broke it up, told her never again, and she ignored it. A few days later it happened again, and I told her Sam won't be a little puppy forever.
Months later..... I kept Sam away from that couple...... Then while in the yard they came by, and the woman decided.....well I'm not sure what she decided, but she became hysterically vocal when Samantha got her revenge! I returned the exchange with "I told you she wouldn't be small forever! I don't want to hear a thing!"
I called Sam over to me,(they were in my yard), and told her stay off my property. That wasn't necesary though, because that other mutt refused to come anywhere near us again
Sadly, we lost Sam a few years ago when a serious stroke crippled her, ever faithful and obediant to thhe very end at 18years old.
