Perfect and well said!! I live in an apartment complex with hundreds of dogs, of all sizes and breeds and temperaments. My 8 pound Maltipoo has definite preferences for some dogs and people vs others. We are not sure if it is fear based or he is protecting me but we have to navigate our walks keeping this in mind. The complex has a leash mandatory requirement ( & a $500 fine for off leash dogs) but some owners still think their nice dog is OK off leash , cause he/she "Likes little dogs".

For example a fully grown Great Dane/Lab/Pit Bull Mix, etc coming towards us sets him off as you an imagine. I would love to send what you wrote to every dog owner in the complex. Maybe I will contact the management and see if they would circulate it. Is that OK, if I credit where it came from ?
