Roberts remained unaware of the fearful canine until Jimmy Fallon told her about it on The Tonight Show, and he gave her a chance to “make amends” with the dog. While she didn’t do anything wrong to begin with—if anything, the dog’s owners should’ve made amends—she gave it a shot.

Even with humans, the bark is worse than the bite.
