Menacing Canine

So last night I was almost attacked by a stray dog. As stated before I am staying in my sister and brother in laws apartment which is about 15 minutes away from my own. I am working my regular shift of 4:30 pm to 1:30 am for this week and last night as I was coming back to this apartment building and approached the door of the building I saw this black stray dog lying right on the door step.

This dog was a stray that had been hit by a car and was left lying on the road and a couple of people from this building moved it to the side and fed it as it recovered. Hence the dog has loyalty and considers this building as his and every night he comes back to the building, using an entrance that isn’t and can’t be locked, and sleeps in the car park area or near the door. People keep putting out food for this dog and hence he doesn’t go away and does keep off other stray dogs in the area. However he doesn’t look too kindly to strangers either. Since he doesn’t know me he didn’t like the fact that I was coming in.

As I approached the door he woke up and started snarling and growling and ferociously barked as he came closer to me. Not knowing what to do, I backed up a little bit and then yelled at the dog and waved my office bag at him. He moved to the side but still growled and so I walked back to the door, keeping my eye on him and opened it and came inside, closing the door behind me. Not sure what to do tomorrow.
