WTH! This makes me furious! I am so sorry for your wife and Barley. Really hoping your vet bills get paid by the pits owner...out of HER pocket. And that there are repercussions for the owner. Sounds like someone needs to light a fire under animal control as well!

Next time, it might be a kid.

Why would anyone want a dog like that?

Poor poor Barley. Your poor wife too of course. Must have been terrifying for them both. I hope Barley makes a speedy recovery.

It seems to be mostly pit bulls, though any dog can bite, but you rarely read of many compaired to pit bulls, i hope your wife and dog recovers, i would most certainly make them pay the vet bills.

This is terrible, poor boy and must have been very scary for your wife. People need to keep there dogs under control, should be on a lead in the garden.

Thanks everyone for your well wishes and advice! Just wanted to update, wife is feeling better, just her left hand is a little weak, she got antibiotics in case of infection, no stitches for her.

Barley seemed to be back to his old self yesterday, except for the cone, which he has already learned to navigate very well with. He is losing teeth fast and wants to chew, but can't hold anything in his paws with the cone on so that is the worst part about it as far as we can tell. So we get to hold washcloths and his antler while he knaws on them

Animal control came, we have to fill out a report for them to take the next step, but the guy was really nice and made it very apparent he wants us to fill out the form (which we will obviously, he says most people don't and then they can't do anything), the dogs will be quarantined for 10 days, and they will check them for current shots, licensing, and if they are too dangerous to be released.

Here are a couple pictures of Barley in the backyard, he's endlessly searching for sticks to chew on.

So glad he and your wife are doing so much better. Please do fill out that report asap. Don't let this go because next time it might be a child. How much time do you have to fill it out? I probably would have filled it out the same night--all caps! lol
Hoping you all had a Happy Thanksgiving.

That photo just breaks my heart. Just an FYI, when a pitbull tried to kill my previous golden, (and her idiot owner sauntered the 300 yards her dog had run to attack mine and who was now clamped onto my dog's throat), I lifted the pit's hind legs in an effort to get her to release Cody. That did not work, but it does help prevent you getting bitten. In my case, it also gave me a place to kick the dog (her kidneys) to get her to let go, which did work. The owners of the dog that attacked Barley absolutely must pay your vet bills, even if you must go to small claims court to make it happen.

I'm very against sue-happy people but if your wife was bit by one of these dogs and their dirtbag owner had them off leash (not saying all pit owners are dirtbags btw) you should sue. Im sick of people with vicious dogs that just let them run free.

I will hold my tongue, for the most part.
I'm so sorry this happened to you....really, honestly, it sickens me. There is SO MUCH I want to sahy about this, but I need to censor myself.

I'm so sorry. I had my dog attacked at a young age too, she wasn't even one year old yet. And it just hurt my soul.

As a suggestion and to make your pup more comfortable....have you heard of the Bite Not collar? It's not a cone, allows for more freedom of movement and more comfortable sleep. I had one for my border collie when he was neutered.
