That's just horrible to happen especially to a pup. Your pup reminds me of my 19 month old pup. I had a run in with a pit bull at the dog park that tried to attack Macintosh but he was a smart dog and had him pinned down by the throat till someone grabbed the pit then he let go and went on playing.

Sir Macintosh of the orchard 11-17-02 4-16-12 You were the best dog that needed a new home and I am glad I found you. I just wish we had more time to spend with you. 8 yrs with you was not enough link to his life in pictures http://s153.photobucket.com/albums/s...g83/Macintosh/ He was my riding buddy and best friend till the end. My heart still aches without you.

Just seeing this now also--how is Barley? Hope your wife is not so shaken up.

It would be worth reading up on how to break up a dog fight. I only did that after my dog was involved in one, and I wish I had known how prior. Although we want to protect our dogs, it can be very, very dangerous for the human who intervenes.

Take care--hope everyone is OK today and ready to enjoy the holiday.

That's so scary! I hope Barley recovers quickly and isn't afraid of other dogs as he grows up.

Tucker was attacked by a black lab when he was about a year old... it was scary. I'm still not a fan of black labs to this day.

I'm so sorry this happened.
Does the owner of the dogs know where you live? If so have they come by to see how everyone is and to offer to pay bills? I certainly would if I was that owner!!
I agree about checking rabies vaccine and even asking your vet if a booster is in order?
I hope your wife and Barley are okay

I'd go over & confront the woman with the vet bill.If you feel unsafe I'd have a police officer escort you.If she refuses to pay I'd take her to court.Your wife & you should not feel afraid to walk your pup in your own neighborhood.Maybe paying the vet bill will let her know she has to do more to controll her dogs.Here animal control would already have the dogs locked up until a trial

They finally get him off and she somehow gets them back in their yard, neighbor who is an emt helps clean up my wife, she calls me freaking out so I had to leave work, get home and rush the dog to the vet... $800 later Barley is a bit banged up but will be ok. 2 wounds with drains, 6 punctures and stitch areas, antibiotics, pain meds, cone of shame.

Took animal control until today to show up, my wife said all they did was take our statement and give us a report to fill out and send in, I am curious as to what comes from that as these people at the absolute least need to pay our vet bill.

So frustrating that something like this can happen!

Barley resting last night:
Make a claim with the pit owners home insurance! Or go to small claims court. Not sure where you live, but we take dog bites very seriously here! I would be LIVID!
