Remember, when doing an inspection or visiting a house that is not yours, to treat any animals you run across with caution.
One time I was walking into an inspection. The realtor was already there. The house was occupied, but the owners were gone, and the clients had not shown up yet. I opened the front door and walked into the entryway, the dog, sleeping in the sun across the living room, jumped up, ran over and bit my leg! The realtor pulled the dog off me and locked him in another room. Exciting! The bite was minimal, and we did the inspection, summarized with clients and at that point the owners came home. I said, “Your dog bit me when I arrived.” They said, “Oh, he doesn’t like men.” Maybe that bit of knowledge should have been in the listing notes.
