    The
    owner of a great dane dalmation mix was walking his dog and the dog was attacked by a Westie. While trying to get the dog of his the terrier attacked the guy ,bit his face and even caused the loss of a tooth. As the owner of a pit -mix that doesnt kill ducks and chickens eventhough she had a chance i thought i had to share. THe little ones can be just as evil as a big dog.

    The report is in german but with pictures.

    I am much more afraid of small dogs than large dogs, except for rotties and dobies, but that's a whole different story!

    Your pit is the cutest debiraymond!

    yep!..i have found that alot more little dogs attack, than big dogs do!.......the attacks just arent put in the news as much because they are not fatal..(like the bigger dog attacks can be)...and thats due to little dog owners letting the dogs run all over them.(cause they are such cute little babies)...and then the dogs have no respect for humans...

    What on earth was he doing, separating the dogs with his face? That is a nasty looking wound.

    I don't bother fighting dogs . . . If they aren't trained well enough to stop when told, they can settle it amongst themselves. Those teeth are scary no matter what sized animal you put them in.

    That being said . . . I love my westie, it's weird trying to picture him as the dog in the story. *pokes Jeff's tail as he "runs" in his sleep*

    Wow poor guy. When my sister was 2 she was bitten on the ear by a Lab and required a large amount of stitches.

    We were at convenient store and the owner and the dog were well known. Kids ALWAYS patted the dog but this day the dog turned for no known reason and almost tore my sister's ear off. She was standing to the side and not even patting the dog.

    Lesson learned for me, no matter what the size NEVER trust any dog.

    ouch... looks like that hurt.. why was he "that" concerned about his great dane.. All that dog would have had to do was put a foot down and squished that little thing.. That whole dog would have fit in its mouth..

    Quote:He first just held his dog(age 10) by the collar and the westie jumped and bit into the back of the great dane mix. I guess from there it isnt that far to a humans face anymore. I guess his dog was so submisive that he wouldnt fight the little dog, or just too old for that stuff.
