I would be furious if another person's dogs attacked mine like that. I definitely do not agree with blaming the breed. Yes pit bulls are a more aggressive breed but when properly trained they are very loyal. My parents have a pitbull who weighs 80 lbs. I've seen him back down from a barking Yorkie. He is a gigantic baby. I personally don't choose to own a Pit but I don't just blame the dog. It is irresponsible of the owner if they cannot handle a breed like a Pit Bull then they have no business owning one.

I started this to get info and support for what happened to us, not to bash certain breeds/irresponsible owners or start a debate about it, so if we can stay on topic it would be appreciated

For those that care, I finally went and talked to the owner, she was super apologetic and seemed very sorry, she said their backyard is now double gated so this won't happen again, and is going to get the dogs into training in the spring.

She is a single mom with 2 kids and is receptive to covering our costs, but it will likely be payments in installments to cover our vet bills/medical bills.

Thanks so much for the update... it is good news that the lady has taken steps to keep her dogs under control and also that she is responsive to help pay for vet bills.

Thanks! My wife is still pretty freaked out to go on walks, especially since once we are home after work it is already dark. She went on a walk with us last weekend to the park during the day and that went great.

Barley is still halfway skittish on walks at night, but he is already much better. We are visiting family in MA while he is staying with family back home and they have a small dog which he is having a blast playing with, his first real good interaction with another dog since this happened, so I'm sure that will only serve to help him more.

Glad to hear that this issue was resolved in a civil way. I'm also glad that the other owner was proactive about not letting an incident like this happen again, so many times the other party may just "blow it off".

From here on out it's a mental obstacle for your wife and Barley. Take it slowly and both will be on back to their normal routine at a comfortable level. It was a horrifying incident and they each gotta take to their own pace when it comes to recovering.
