My pit bull was in an altercation. Need advice!

I need some advice. I was walking my girlfriends companion dog on a leash (pit bull) in our apartment complex. I was getting close to our apartment when our down stairs neighbor’s dog (small poodle) came running out of their apartment (unleashed) and started attacking our dog. Our dog tried run behind me because he was scared. This little dog continued to charge my dog and my dog nipped the other dog in the leg. Left a gash that is probably going to need stitches. I’m worried the neighbor is going to try to pull some legal actions. Is she at fault with her dog being unleashed and attacks my dog even though my dog did not get hurt and hers did?

Her dog was off leash. It is her fault. But since you have the bull breed, there is a possibility she will try to play the "aggressive dog" card. If it were me and I lived in an apartment complex, I would contact management about an off leash dog attacking my dog.
In the future, the key is to protect your dog from contact with the assailant. Pick your dog up. Kick the other dog. Whatever it takes.

Thanks for the reply. I don’t want to contact management because I don’t want any issues. But I did call animal control and left a message after the altercation to document what happened. There was no one there due to the time of night. Calling again as soon as they open.

Good. I hope that dogs owner doesn't give you a hard time. And stick to your guns. Your dog was leashed. By law you should have the upper hand.

Great advice and I agree a dog off leash is at fault but if the lady tries to use the "pitbull" reputation you will have to state that the ankle biter went after your leashed dog. It's a shame that it happened but maybe the Poodle owner will learn a lesson and keep it on a leash like the rest of the responsible dog owners do.
BTW, nice picture, just look at that sweet face.

Hi. Like EckoMac said pick up your dog and kick that other dog. All feelings aside. Protect your baby. My fiancé and I talked about this scenario and concluded it would be the right thing to do.

I️ was going to say the same thing @ kick the other dog, but thought folk would crucify me on here for saying if haha, yeah I️ would of booted that dog straight up...

But yeah you had leash they didn’t, they are at fault (and poodles are vicious dogs by the way) but yeah they will most likely say yours is vicious...

In MJ opinion doesn’t matter...self defense is self defense...

I had this exact situation happen with my dogs. Both of my dogs were on lead walking through our complex when another dog (on lead no less) was going after my poor boy. I literally had Kaos between my legs and a hold of Nala's collar and that dog was trying to attack Kaos from the back where Kaos couldn't even protect himself. That dog got a good swift kick from me and his owner got a solid tongue lashing for not controlling her "Oh by my dog is so friendly" dog. And I mean a GOOD tongue lashing. I ran into her again without my dogs and told her if it happened again I would not keep my dogs under quite such good control and allow them to protect themselves. She was none to happy but oh well. Control your dogs!

And of course she tried to blame my 'vicious' bulls but once I was done my verbal assault I don't think I'll have problems with her again. EckoMac gave solid advise as always.

Depending on where you live, I carry this. Instead of normal pepper spray that needs to be in the nose/eyes, this is a fog that a dog runs though and immediately heads home, at least they have in my experience. Sadly, I have had to use it twice but both times the worst that happened was they had to give their dog a bath. This one gives a 10 foot fog, I spray and they run through the fog and turn away. https://www.udap.com/mm5/product/3P

this one is 15 foot range https://www.udap.com/mm5/product/6MF

ThaLadyPit one of the admins was nice enough to change my name for me. Since I’m going through and ugly messy divorce and my ex won’t allow me to see Ciara any longer it was too painful to see her name whenever I logged on. Since I have the pups it seemed only appropriate to change my name to DD for them. I miss Ciara terribly as she was MY best friend but nothing I can do about it
