Shadow my 4 month old gsd saved my life
3 Attachment(s)
Me and shadow were at the dog park having a fun day when a pit mix attacked me he had his jaws locked on my left hand and shadow jumped on the pit but the dog wouldn't let go of me so my next instinct was to get the dog off of my hand and that's when I heard the dog yelp shadow had managed to get him to let go needless to say I had 2 pucture wound on top and 1 on the bottom of my hand thank god shadow was there and thankful that shadow didn't get hurt can't believe he is that loyal and protective this early in age

did the pit mix try to attack him next??
hopefully it was all reported to animal control

The pit tried to go after shadow but the owner took control of him some of the dog owners witness the whole thing so they called animal control and the Sherrif the owner agreed to pay the hospital bill But he was slapped with a bunch if fines but glad shadow was there can they be really that protective I'm a first time gsd owner and have no idea how the gsd breed is

Wow! This shows the true bravery of the German Shepherd breed. You have a very courageous pup.

Awwww good job Shadow and just a baby yet too.

So glad Shadow is O.K.

BUT - Is your hand alright today? After reading and seeing the pics of Gatorbytes hand (she was bit in the hand by a pitt too) those type of wounds can be really serious.

Did they impound the PB? He should be observed for rabies.

I don't know how dog parks work where the OP is but by us you have to have a permit and in order to get that permit the dogs have to be vaccinated and up to date. But by me there would have been no fines either because it's states on signs as you walk in that they are not responsible for any injuries....enter at your own risk. When my dog got attacked the owner paid for the vet bills on their own and no report was ever made to anyone.
