I'm hoping someone here might be able to help me. My dog a Rott had his first run-in with a pitbull the other day.we were out on a hike and this pit bull attacks my dog while on leash, and had him by the throat but let go after about 3 minutes or so , not too much damage done just a little puncture. What I want to know is what if anything can you do to get one of those dogs to let go when this happens. Needless to say I'm packing now!

A bullet in the top of the head seams to work pretty good. I hate those things.

I also would like to hear of a good way. I think that it has to be in the will of the dog to let go!

I dont want it to come to that but I've been packin! The first time I ran into the owner, I was headed up there with my Yote gun figuring I'd do some calling once up there. Well she feaked out when she saw my rifle and started telling me to watch out cuz her dogs were with her, somewhere. They were off down the hillside cuz I never did see them. I told her not to worry i wasnt huntin dogs! Not them kind anyway.
This time she had them off leash again and mine were on leash. I just wonder what will happen the next time.

If you shoot her dog, she will sue. You were carrying a gun, that is premeditation. If you only wound her dog, you will also be liable for the tens of thousands of dollars in medical costs she will surely produce.

Zap the dog with a stun gun the next time it attacks. That will knock it out cold. No marks, no injury, no law suit, and dog thinks twice before attacking again.

I don't know if it would help any but you might want to consider filing a complaint against her and the dog. May not have any effect now but in case of any future lawsuits you will have documentation that there was a situation. Nothing helps more in court than time date documents. Also, if anybody else has had problems and reported it you may be able to prove and ongoing problem. Doesn't mean that you need to press charges on anybody just shows proof if needed.

I hate to hear these stories about pit bulls. I have one myself and she is the smartest, most loyal, faithful and well behaved breeds I have owned. BUT they are power houses! Just as the Rott these dogs have amazing jaw strength, speed and good eye site. Bottom line, this breed has NO BUSINESS out of the owners site! Mine is at my side or contained. She's trained and been tested on the training, should she fail, such as attacking another dog for no reason, I would put her down myself! I agree you should report this dog, if it made an attack on your dog, it has done it before and will do it again. The reason these dogs get a bad rap is because of the owners! This breed needs to be with its people, they are devoted like a German shepherd, leave them alone and they will get in trouble, and it will be big trouble! Glad your dog is ok!

I agree with turning it in for having a record of it. I run hounds on many miles of country. people have no right to shoot my hounds unless (I quote) unless my hounds are threating them or thier live stock etc. one of my buddies had a hound get shot last year for no reason and it cost the guy $4000 plus the charges he got. if this dog attacts your dog for no reason yes you do have a right to destroy the dog.The stungun might be alot easier to carry and should be effective to stop it. even a small bat in your hind pocket.

I work at a Vet Clinic, Some people hate pitbulls, just because they're pitbulls. The truth is there are a lot of people that buy them and treat them like crap so thats what the dog does to people and other dogs. But majority o pits I have encountered have had grat owners and are great dogs.
I if a dog is trained to fight thats what they will do its not their fault its the owners. But if my dog were attacked by a pit I probaly would kill the bastard or see to it that the owner must put it down.

My neighbor and I were standing in his yard a couple of months ago, and watched this pit bull chase a little girl into the house when she was in the front yard. The dog then proceeded to come our way no aggressively. It came in to my neighbors yard and started to sniff around. Looked like he was going to leave a nice steaming pile! From 50 yards away I just started to say go home. The dog went into attack mode. It came at us and we separated a little bit enough so that the neighbor could get a couple of heave objects. At the time the dog’s attention was more on me. He also told his wife to call 911. He had a heavy level and all I had was a thick broomstick handle. When hit wife opened the front door to give the description to the 911 operator the dog turned on her chasing her into the house. Once the door was closed we were back as the primary targets. A couple of minutes later we see this lady pushing what appeared to be a toy baby stroller with a new born in it say don’t hurt her she is a nice dog…?????

She came into the front yard and put a lease on the dog and it was like the dog snapped. It was totally different. She was calm and docile. We started to tell her what was going on and that she needed to do something about this dog because of all the little kids in the area. She said that she has never had a problem before. I them proceeded to tell her that if that dog ever comes into my yard with either me or my kids out there that the dog will not be coming home. She said well do what you have to do I understand. That is not a comment of a good dog! And it was like she didn’t care.

By the time that the sheriff got there the dog was on a leash and nothing was going on there was nothing that he said he could do. I have had a couple of run ins like this with pit bulls. None of them being good.

Since then the dog has been seen wondering by the school with no owner around.
