    Very well said Pinkest.

    Yep, I think Pinkest has hit the nail on the head.

    Your last couple of posts have just been plain childish. Don't want to have an adult discussion don't join a forum. As it is anyone who doesn't agree word for word with you, you believe is attacking you or putting you and your previous dog down. If you can't put up with people having a different point of view them just don't join in.

    Yes no doubt i will do it again.........After all it had a good result. me just with some scars, my dog with some huge neck punctures, but alive and still friendly in dog company. I have had dogs for a long time, my father was a GSD trainer and Breeder for the Police and Army. I love GSD's, but just like any dog, they too can "turn". Dogs are dogs after all and each and everyone has their own personality. And they (GSD) are also not easy to get off another dog if in full fight mode. Even a labrador can be difficult. The so called soft mouth.
    I agree with everyone, it won't matter what we say or do, it will be wrong in the posters eyes. I will just go with what i feel is right . I am happy with that...........

    Oh gosh, I have done some very silly things during dog fights.
    All the safe methods and ideas mean nothing when it is actually happening in front of you... you just react.

    we have a beagle- he is NEVER off leash because his scent drive is way stronger than his recall, no matter what training we do. He is not interested in other dogs much- a quick hello and then back to sniffing.

    He was recently CHARGED from 100meters away at a full run by a ? kelpi. I was walking with my 7 yr old son, and beagle on the leash (with a harness). I did not dare drop the harness as I believed my dog running away would be worse- the attacker would give chase...
    instead I yelled at my son to "get back!", held onto the leash, faced attacker and screamed full at it while attempting to kick him. Him mangled my beagle until the owner chased him down and tackled his dog off of mine.
    Vet trips over easter long weekends, antibiotics, infection later...

    If a dog does not have perfect recall they should be leashed.

    I am ignoring the rest of the "he said, she said" and rude remarks of the thread.
    Everyone should post their opinion without condeming others (I have noted some slagging off in the nutrition threads lately).
    Just because others have a different opinion does NOT make them incorrect or wrong. Its just a different opinion.

    of course - bullterriers now!
    You started it. Personally I don't blame the breed for bad behaviour.

    A nelsons hold is what I believe you are referring to-done (big man, my uncle-so what have you got to say now?)
    No. I'm talking about using a rope or choke collar to strangle the dog, but like I said - not easy to do and grabbing the hind legs - maybe one person per leg - is easier and safer.

    dogs resided together, no problems until that day,
    very very unlikely. More likely people responsible did not recognise the signs.

    do some research with regard to dogs that turn for no reason we can as humans comprehend
    My guess at trying to understand this phrase: You think I should do some research on why dogs turn for no reason. Ie no reason that a human notices or understands.

    The only reason a dog turns "for no reason" is when it has a brain tumor. There are a squillion actual reasons why a dog turns and attacks another dog or human, almost all of them have warning signs in advance. A possible exception might be when the attacking dog has been trained by an extremely stupid human not to give any warning before it attacks. Ie any time it has expressed any fear or anxiety or upset about something - ie growled, it has been scolded and / or beaten for doing so.

    -people that cant control their dogs on lead does not apply to me,
    Your dog while on lead attacking another dog - does apply to you! Fair enough your dog was provoked and had a legal right in most states to defend itself (and you) but it certainly wasn't "under control" unless you gave it permission to attack or fight back.

    so take it up with someone else.
    why? This is an open discussion forum. You're the one making rambling disconnected accusations and preposterous sentences. You're the one asking the rest of us to do "research" and back up what we say. Why don't you do the same?

    BTW I will donate to any animal rescue that I see fit
    What is the relevance of this statement to this thread? Or even anything else you have written? I admire your support for AWL - I also support them - that's where my dog came from. But I have no idea why you added that comment in this thread.

    I think it's time for you to go away, do some growing up, and come back and then apologise to those who you are now becoming belligerent to.
    Let me get this right, you and other members allow my posts? On a thread, not the vent thread, that I basically initiated and set a poll? If I am unabated perhaps I would not have had to repeat myself. I notice the occurs with others posts, thats okay? The post from sweetboy explains how his dog was on leash and mauled. Where are any of your comments regarding, that he can't control his dog and keep his dog safe? No that's right, there are none. Same situation, different post-no comments or condemnation. By the way, beliggerance is one stating that they basically permit another to have part in something at their discretion. That is not your decisions to make, so perhaps you could move onto other threads, as I have done myself and still came across one of you who went out of their way to follow me to a redundant thread just to mock me. One of those you support actually, Hyacinth. Check that out! oh and I have not been in to any nutrition threads but dare say that sweetboy speaks the truth.

    Now this is just getting funnier and funnier!

    Most of us use the "New Posts" function. That means when we click on it it shows all of the threads that have a new post in them that day or since the last time we read that thread.

    So no-one was following you/stalking you... Why the hell would we?

    Yes, I am the same.
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    No-one commented on sweetboy not controlling his dog because he never said that his leashed dog attacked the other dog... only that the off leash dog attacked his despite his best efforts.

    And in regards to us "allowing" your posts... well it is exactly that, we could have all reported this thread pages ago and asked that it be closed, but gave you the benefit of the doubt. It's not about belligerence, it's about trying to keep the forum friendly.
    I myself am guilty of taking things too far sometimes, but when I do I am warned... which is what I think people are trying to say here.

    I have popped into this thread many times because I found some of the opinions interesting. It shows up as a bolded thread when it has a new post, I don't usually take notice of who the last poster was, only that it has new ones. Before now I have not acknowledged the to and fro between members, I just posted my story from our local park and about dog fights. But this has gone on so long and now there are more posts about people fighting than about dogs doing so.

    /End rant
