This is the 2nd dog attack and if there is another one it is going to be that dogs last attack. I posted this over a month ago and this is what happened today. First I'm 64 years old and not in great health. I'm walking down at the river in Tempe AZ and a pit bull gets away from a kid who should not have been on the lease in the first place and I see the dog charging form about 50 feet away so I reach in my pocket to get my pepper spray and then decided I can just protect my dog because the owners are only 50 feet away. Boy was I wrong. That pit bull went through me and I couldn’t protect my dog so I got ahold of its collar and pulled it off my dog and I figure if the dog bits me it will have a naughty headache after I punch him in the head as hard as I can but that didn’t happen because I am the one who would of got hurt with a broken hand. The people came and were very nice and I called the police which was useless and the people ask if they could help and I said no. I make 3 big mistakes. 1. I didn’t pepper spray the dog. 2. I didn’t ask the people to stay because I am calling the police. 3. I didn’t take any pictures of them with my cell phone camera. My dog seems to be OK and I am very upset and lucky. I called back the Tempe police and put in a complaint about the dispatcher who didn’t know the area and who was of no help and the supervisor will call me back tomorrow. The bottom line is I am going to get a permit to carry a gun and the next dog that attacks mine is going to be dead.
