Default Another Breed of Peace

I was well out of town yesterday, at a great party in Louisiana, when I got a call from my ex-SIL last night. "Mikee, please hurry over here, I had to shoot my sister's ( my ex) dog just now" So..... did what was asked, and drove almost 6 hours straight thru ( new F-350 with 48 gallon tank ROCKS!!).

Apparently my ex's dog, got into a fight with the SIL dog, who is actually bigger than the ex's pit/boxer mix, mainly pit it appears. The ex's dog has been acting more dominant lately, the other day it tore my shirt, when he snapped at me while we were playing tug of war; he pissed all over the SIL house marking his territory last time he was there, and he snarled at ex and I while telling him to lay down a couple weekends ago. I told her then, to be very wary of him and to not allow him to play rough with our daughter who is 8. I am NOT a fan of pit's, or pit mixes, am much a dog guy, but understand that they have to be kept in place, or these stronger hearted breeds will try to become the Alpha in the group, whether the group be dogs or people. It's why I don't like to allow dogs to sleep on beds or couches, but insist that they eat when and where I say, sleep where I tell them, and in general toe the line.

The SIL dog almost had his ear torn off, numerous puncture wounds to the throat and neck, the pit was trying to get a neck hold on him, but the SIL dog is pretty thick, and was strong enough to keep from being taken off his feet. If the pit had gotten him down, it would have been all over. My ex, got her hand and wrist torn up, trying to pull her dog off SIL, they broke a metal broom over him but he wouldn't let go. SIL ran back into house, grabbed her 40 S&W, shot the pit once thru the shoulders, he did not let up, then again thru the back, between the shoulders, missed apparently anything vital. First shot was thru completely, broke a shoulder, the dog was unfazed. After second shot, the dog let go, wandered around a bit and sat down. They grabbed up the SIL dog, separated it, in another vehicle, and took it to vet. Bunch of stitches and repairs, seem he will be OK. The pit ON HIS OWN POWER, jumped into back of MIL's SUV, and she took him to vet. He gets out of the SUV, into the vets exam room, and then bites the vet, luckily not too badly. Ex wisely says, that's enough, don't treat him, euthanize him now. She was a couple hours at the hospital getting stitched up and shots etc.

Stuff I already knew, but bears repeating:
1. Don't get between two fighting dogs, use a water hose or something like an ax handle, solid, to break them up.
2. An enraged animal cannot be reasoned with, called off, or distracted. Apparently, like humans, a pistol round is NO sure method of stopping an attack. Unless a hit is made to CNS, or the animal ( or person ) bleeds out, there is still plenty of fight in them, be careful.
3. A dog exhibiting dominant traits, needs to be kept from other animals, as well as children, and people unable to defend themselves from an attack. This is the owners responsibility.
4. Be VERY careful dealing with wounded or hurt animals, they can and will bite you from shock or pain, and not be really aware of what or why they are biting. They only understand that they are hurting and any stimulus that affects that, is subject to a response from them.

Ex and SIL both feel very badly about this, we all agreed that this could have happened to our daughter playing with him. No doubt, that dog loved my daughter, as well as my ex. He still bit the crap out of the ex for interfering with his desire to kill the other dog. We were fortunate that the SIL was a trained Federal LE previously, and had a decent handgun close, and knew how to use it proficiently. Ex has definitely learned about dogs, and why I tried to discourage her from getting this dog. He was really a sweet lovable guy, always happy etc, but..... when the dark side hits one of these stronger breeds, they are a real handful and can do a lot of damage in a short time. My daughter only witnessed the start of the fight, she ran into the house ( she is pretty dang smart ), and missed seeing the carnage on either dog. She misses her dog a lot today, but she understands " Dad, I could never trust that dog again after that, I'm sad he's gone and I miss him, but he can't be here anymore". Pretty adult stuff for an 8 yr old.

My BIL, also a LE, made the best comment today. "If you think you are going to a fight, and might need a gun, make sure to take a rifle. A pistol is not a rifle."

I am tired from a bunch of driving last couple days. I'll check back on this thread tomorrow sometime.

damn mike, 6 hrs drive, that sucks as does the described situation. I'm glad to read of your online dating fun but it sounds like a bit of balance to your life as opposed to "that guy is killing it"

Thanks, there is a bit more to it than that. The SIL used to work for me, we have always been very close. Since I split up with The Ass't last year, the ex dumped her boy toy and things have been much better between us. Not getting back together, but without her expecting me to pay for both him and hers lifestyle, it is much easier to spend time with her and our daughter. She was after all the 2nd longest relationship of my life, its OK having her back in it, as long as it doesn't get out of hand. Not sleeping with her, but not telling her everything I am doing also.

Main reason for going was to be supportive of all three - Ex, SIL and daughter. Mission was accomplished.

And I am with y'all - Pit bulls are like communists - best one are dead ones.

I never see me driving to my ex (If I ever got divorced) 6 hr drive because her dog got into a fight. You wanted me gone, unless my kid is in trouble, don't pick up the phone. But maybe that's just me.

You can get in between two DOGS fighting, but if ones a pit, you better be ready to protect yourself. Grab their back two legs and pull up and back. They will let their lockjaw go and start snapping back at your hands but just keep pulling back. Strong fers. Seen one get put down but it was a dome shot by a .9mm. Most peaceful way I have seen an animal go from 100 to 0. Truly sad and shocking honestly.

Its just not worth getting in between two dogs fighting, if you are going to do that with pits involved, be prepared for some pain, it is GOING to happen.

Things are better now with the Ex, we have a daughter between us, now that she is not involved with the boy toy that split us up, it is much easier to hang out there. My daughter was needing her daddy since her dog just got deaded, I'm not holding that back from her. FWIW, the date I left in Louisiana was pretty cool about it, she was messaging me the whole way asking how everyone was doing. Plus, she is coming over later this week again. Cool chick, knowing that she was being sent to the sidelines for the Ex, the SIL and my daughter, more than some ladies would be pissed off over that.

LOL nope! I was NOT involved in any sort of the shooting.

Although Ex #2, did have someone try to shoot me, I'm still here, didn't work out so good for him.

Not sure the statute of limitations is up on that one yet. I'll probably have to hold that story off a bit. Lets leave it at this, I have been shot at in earnest three times in my life, by people that wanted to do me harm. They all failed. None of those times did I have a pistol or rifle on me. I have resolved to not find myself in that condition again. Only one of those things happened in the USA, the thing with the Ex #2. I have also decided that I will not EVER again, tell someone to get off their fat ass and come shoot me, I have found that they may in fact take me up on the offer.

No pics of SIL or Ex #3, SIL shoots too good, and I do not wish to incur her wrath or her sisters.
