In a situation like this, you can't really hold off reporting the dog because you're worried something bad will happen to it. That's laudable but the dog is a hazard. He bit your dog unprovoked. I hope you do report it. The owner is a jerk to brush the incident off like that, and he should be paying the vet bill.

Sorry to hear that your dog was attacked. The owner of the pit should be responsible enough to have the dog on a leash if it is aggressive.

Because my older guy Axl ( I can't believe he's going to be 5 in less than a month) is off leash 90% of the time pursuing his life's work of being an insanely good disc dog, we have encountered many idiots who seem to think it's cool to let their aggressive dogs run free. I actually had a woman with a Cane Corso, inform me that I had better put Axl on a leash and leave because she was about to let her dog loose. Although I was annoyed, I figured I'd just leash up Axl and leave because I didn't want to risk him getting injured. Well apparently I wasn't complying with her wishes quickly enough so she intentionally let her dog loose and smirked when he made a beeline straight to Ax who was trotting back to me from about 200' away carrying the disc he had just caught. Her dog attacked him unprovoked and a REALLY viscous dog fight ensued. By the time I covered the distance to the dogs, Axl was basically cleaning her dogs clock even though it was 4" taller and 50 lbs heavier. I of course, broke up the fight as soon as I got there and her dog took off yelping. She then had the unmitigated gall to start screaming that Axl had savaged her dog. I'm sure she would have had no problem if Axl had gotten mauled. She probably would have found it amusing. I wished her a good day (New York style lol) as she left. Hopefully, both she as well as her Cane Corso, learned a valuable lesson that day...don't mess with a Golden, especially an athletic, coordinated, dominant male in peak physical condition. He may look harmless and obedient but when attacked he is MORE than capable of defending himself. Definitely one of my favorite things about him.

PS: Axl and I spent another 20 minutes or so finishing our daily disc workout

dog owners like this are the reason people who are responsible about their dogs get given a bad name! Makes me mad!
Im so glad he is ok and from the sounds of it his nose will heal up nicely. Im sorry this has happened to you, its never nice to see or hear it happen

Maverick was bitten by an aggressive dog a couple months ago. I found out that the dog had a history of being aggressive and was never reported. The lady, not the dog's owner but the dog's owner's mother, knew of the history of the dog too. She didn't act very kindly to me over the phone when she said "call me anytime to discuss it" so that was the final straw for me, I reported the dog.

I admit I don't like getting people in trouble, but an aggressive dog is more trouble waiting to happen. Report the dog before that dog seriously hurts another dog or person. If the owner needs to learn the hard way then so be it.

Report it as the owner isn't using common sense.

Think of it this way, you are helping the owner understand that a serious bite could cost him the life of his dog. You are trying to protect his dog as well as everyone else.

Bennett got a deep scratch and his nose returned to black. My black cat rubbed/scraped her nose on the cat carrier - it is still pink two years later.

I agree, report it. You may just prevent a horrible tragedy this way.

As far as the nose, it will probably heal back just fine. One of my Bridge boys stuck his nose in the hole of a ratty fence next to a sidewalk we were on one day to say "hi" to the barking dog behind it and the resident dog bit him on the nose- I was distracted scooping up Toby's poop. That bite mark never returned to completely black.
