I was walking my dog on a leash and as soon as I passed my neighbors house their pit bull came charging after my dog. My dog tried to get away by running back to his house but their pit kept charging after him and kept on attacking. Her dog was not a leash.

The neighbor did do the right thing. We immediately after the dog brawl, both went to her vet and they patched him up and gave my boy some pain meds. He may have to get stitches and an x-ray if his paw doesn't heal in the next week or so.

He's still having some problems with walking and the vet said that should be normal for the next couple of days as it heals.

I got hurt in the process by my spraining my wrist and arm when I fell to the ground trying to get her dog off my mine.

One thing that really ticked me off, was that they were totally slow at getting their dog off of my dog. They were in no rush to get their dog off mine and then she says to her man "get the dog, I almost broke my nail".

*^*^&* kidding me............. You won't get your dog off mine over a *^&*^*^ nail???

If my arm and wrist still hurt in the next couple of days she's going to being paying for that hospital bill too.

I suspect in most places thats clearly an offense that can result in fines, jail time or the destruction of their dog.

They did do the honest thing for paying the vet bill. I mean, she could of blatantly said no. I then would of gotten Officers involved. And yes, they should of had that dog on leash. stupid people.

I know her mother and I am going to talk with her and the neighbor. I'm going to tell them at all times, that dog is to be on a leash if it's in the front yard.

I have pictures of damages in case it comes to that. I am hoping that it doesn't. I don't want her dog to get put down. But, she does need handle him better, she has foreknowledge that he gets like that around other dogs. Which makes her negligent.

I first will talk to them and if I see it not on a leash again, I will then get officers involved.

You definitely need to call the police or animal control. While it's bad enough that the pit bull hurt your dog, next it could be a child. All dogs should be restrained from running loose, but especially pit bulls.

Sorry to hear about that, I hope things get better for you and your dog. Yeah, I agree about the woman, that is ridiculous. Sometimes people are depressing. I've been having an off day myself, although luckily I haven't suffered any physical damage.

I just got in a scuffle with the ATS staff over one of their policies. I hope it turns out for the best, and that they listened to my input, although I didn't do the best job of presenting myself.

Starring because I like you and you had a bad day.

Watch really close for infection if the vet didn't give antibiotics.
Bite infections are common.

If the vet gave antibiotics, remember that most of them cannot be taken with dairy. So many people want to put the pills in cheese :shk: I use peanut butter on a spoon for pills.

Did the vet say anything about soaking the paw in tepid salt water? Sometimes that helps keep infection away, and speeds the healing.
I had a dog years ago, with a pine needle that got stuck in his paw, we soaked (15 min each time) and changed the dressing about 4 times a day.

Poor fellow, I hope he heals up well

Yeah, he's on antibiotics and inflammation medication. He said hiding it in the hot dogs would be okay for him to take. They also gave him a shot in his butt.

Thank you all.

I was just remembering how pitts shake sometimes when they bite.

Watch for swelling / injury all the way up the leg, in case he shook and did any joint damage. That type of damage might not show for a couple of days...

Give your boy an extra hug....

Yeah, the vet explained that too me and said hopefully it will heal in the next couple of days, and if not, he will then put him under anesthesia to get an x-ray of his front paw.

My dog got his first haircut.
He did not want to be shaved.

I don't care what people say about pit bulls, and there "are no bad dogs, just bad owners", but pit bulls are in a category all by themselves when it comes to them being dangerous to other animals and small children.

My father used to have a pit bull, and that dog could be just as sweet as pie, but that darned dog was a nut, and he was dangerous. He used to manage to get out of a backyard and then would come home with somebody's pet in his mouth. After tying him up in the back yard, he would go insane trying to get loose, and in frustration would actually chew on large rocks until his teeth chipped.

They are aggressive when they taste blood, they have a lot of fight and chase in them, and if they have attacked another animal or child once, they will do it again. I never let my dad's dog alone around my kids. His jaw strength alone broke most of the rocks he chewed.

I'm so sorry about your baby, and I hope he feels better....But I would have called animal control on this issue. Those owners are irresponsible, and paying the vet bills was their way of making sure you didn't rat them out. Whether you do or not is up to you, but imagine how bad you'll feel if you find out this dog mauled a child or a grown person, or has been killing innocent cats and small dogs.

As much as I like animals, I really do not like pit bulls, because they are dangerous by nature and cannot help it. They do not belong in neighborhoods. They should be registered as dangerous weapons, and the owners held liable for any damage they do.

That irks me too. Grrr. I'm sorry you got hurt too. Seems like every time one of my dogs gets into a jam, I wind up getting hurt too. I always have some "dog-related" or 'horse-related' bruise or injury, it seems.

Yep. Pill in peanut butter -- that's the way to go. Of course, I'm sure mine would prefer hotdogs too!

Get well wishes to you both!

Definetly call animal control. you do not let unleashed dogs run around.

and the easiest way to get dogs to take pills is in a spoonful of wet cat food, they slurp it down so fast that they never notice the pills,.

Sorry to hear about your fuzzy. I hope your baby gets wells soon.They should have any dog on a leash in a neighborhood. And its not just pitbulls.
I have pitbulls, they are a wonderful breed. They are very protective of thier owners, so a leash wouldve been they way to go in the first place. There are many family dogs with worse temperaments..do some real research instead of relying on the sensational MSM, stories for $$$ people. Why dont we call little nippy annoying breeds dangerous for biting people, cause alot of them do too. Should we ban or exterminate all chihuahuas and terriers? Cause Ive seen those suckers latch on to kids and chow down, but they are small so it's not a big story. And big bad nasty pit bull gets viewers. And running into one badly treated pit that was "crazy" doesnt make the breed crazy. If thats the way to think the aliens might as well kill us all cause we have some humans that are pretty darn insane.

Going to have to try that, he was too smart for the hot dog. Refused to take his meds.
So, I did it the hard way.

I am not blaming the dog. It was natural instinct. I am blaming the owner and that is why I didn't get officers involved. If I get the officers involved, they will blame the dog. It wasn't her fault she was not leashed, it was her owners fault why she wasn't leashed.

Different breeds have different temperaments. Pitt bulls tend to have an aggressive temperament. That is why pit bulls have traditionally been trained as fighting dogs. German Shepherds can be aggressive as well, which is why they make good attack dogs or police dogs. You'll never see golden retrievers trained as fighting dogs, because of their laid back, gentle temperament. I have seen many golden retriever guide dogs, but have never seen a pit bull guide dog. And yes, I have seen some snappy chihuahuas and terriers. But I have never seen a dog go for a kill the way I have seen a pit bull do it.

The idiot tried telling me that the only reason your dog got attacked was because he ran to the house, not because he was protecting you. I tried telling her, from personal experience mind you, that he is extremely protective of you. Nope. According to her, he ran like a long tailed cat in a room full of rockers as soon as he saw their dog and that's the only reason their do bit your dog. Malarky! I STILL say turn them in! Next time it's a kid. To let any dog that you KNOW has gone after other dogs in the past run wild is careless and irresponsible as an owner and you do not need to own ANY pet, let alone one that can harm someone or something. It's your dog, your decision though.
