middleofnowhere To the OP - sounds like your dog is OK, the boston is OK, your neighbors are OK. Where you go from here is just keep on. If your dog had been serious about doing anyting but putting the Boston in his place, the Boston would likely be history. She showed restraint, she came out of the altercation in good spirits. You've done a good job with her so far.

Despite what the posts might lead you to believe, most of us are not perfect and the occassional "wreck" of one sort or another happens. (I've blown closing a gate a time or two under stress, other people have mistakenly left my gate open etc. - course it hasn't happened to any one else on the board but you and I... )

Blanketback You're welcome, patspeaking. I'm happy for you that you have such decent neighbors, because it could have gone the other way - where they said your dog started the whole thing. And your dog sounds like a very nice girl, to just put the other dog in its place and then settle right down again. Tell your neighbors they impressed me with their honesty

Blanketback Well, she got bitten and she retaliated, and she won. She's not a young puppy that was intimidated - she's an adult who defended herself. I'd stay away from the dog park for awhile though, because the next dog that pisses her off might get bitten too. Not saying that's a given, it's just something to watch out for.

patspeaking She is 3 years old. We do bring her to the dog park once a week and have been doing so since she was 10 weeks old. We have friends bring their dog over when they visit.

Blanketback OP, I don't think your dog is going to be afraid of other dogs in the future. Your dog pretty much won the fight, by the sounds of it. But she might be less tolerant of other dogs' poor manners now. Do you take her to dog parks?

I agree with the others about just securing your dog better and socializing with dogs you know, on neutral territory. How old is your dog?
Vicious attacks can be accidents too, it's about avoiding the potential of those regardless intent of how it happens. Because it's an accident doesn't mean there shouldn't be a consequence. What I proposed is a severe and I'm okay with that.

Sorry if my opinion has hijacked the thread.

OP, it's good that you're trying to do the best to make it right. I hope it works out.
