And just my luck if I were to have shot the dog then I would have been sued for everything I own. I can live with a warning shot.

And what exactly says that this shot was reckless? The bullet traveled exactly where I wanted it.

Just dont tell them that it was a warning shot, just say that you shot at it then missed. Then the dog got scared and ran off, that works :-)

That was the plan. But just as I suspected no one showed up. Even after a call to animal control.

Well, You have your paper trail now. You have voiced your complaint. If it is a m ust because the dog is a danger and keeps coming around, you can take care of it and report it or, do what I would do and use a small caliber (.22 head shot x 3) and a deep hauler...

You won't be sued for defending yourself against a dog on your property. You have the paper trail, don't waste ammo or money for fines by shooting dirt.
