My dog protected me from a dog attack

My dog didn’t win any titles but I’m so proud of my dog for protecting me from a dog trying to attack me

We were on a jog at around 9pm. It was completely dark and out of nowhere a dog came running straight for me. My gsd tackled it, a quick scuffle and I took off running pulling my dog away right behind me. I have no idea what kind of dog it was all I know is my gsd kicked its butt and my dog thankfully wasn’t harmed. I hope that dog was okay too but I wasn’t going back to find out I was pretty scared of my dog being hurt

Has your gsd ever had to protect you?

Sounds like all three of you were startled!My dogs would flip out if a person with their dog came running past in the dark.I'm glad everyone is ok.
If running after dark is a regular activity for you consider carrying an led flashlight with a strobe function.They are so intense and blinding (even in daylight) it will stop a dog or human in their tracks.

Glad you all are ok.

I have an older version of this

Love it for walking the dogs at night. Unlike a flashlight you can't drop it, it keeps you visible for passing motorists and prevents sneak ups in the dark.
I still often carry my Maglite but that has other uses and is sort of my security blanket.

Those lights mentioned are worth checking out. Yeah mine sure would have wanted to keep the dog in check. Glad all are safe.

Good that your dog keeps you safe!

My dog "protected" me from a pair of mini poodles, which was embarrassing.
I was chatting with their owner who was asking about our neighborhood, and they came over and jumped up on me, putting their paws on my legs. I think their paws barely reached my knees even when they were standing up. Then Rumo (my 76 lb dog who towers over them) growled at them! I was pretty embarrassed and I explained to her that he is somewhat protective...

Strobe lights are great but also use a steady light! A driver cannot guage the distance to a flashing light easily.

The strobe function is only used to blind an attacker,be it man or beast.Slamdunc recommendedWorks day or night!
