Holy crap!  Well done you!  She was super lucky you came along!  Not many people would have been capable of helping with her dogs much less be willing to go so far out of their way!  You DO deserve a medal of honor!

My red heeler gets into it with my friend’s lab a lot, they do NOT like each other at all. Most of the time they just jump up on their back feet, clamp together and do a lot of growling. I have to break them up with sticks or chairs, no way will I be sticking my arms anywhere near that!! You did a good thing to help her, I hope she went to the doctor for those wounds. I’m sure they can get infected pretty easily.

And before people get all up in arms about the Rott being the problem, I’ve been bitten more times by toy breeds than I care to remember. A Shitzu took a chunk out of my leg when I was 10, and I had to get a tetanus shot (which scarred me mentally for life! I HATE Shitzu’s!), and my mom’s stupid toy poodle bites my hands all the time when she’s grouchy that you sit next to her on the couch. Now I just push her off it when my mom’s not looking to keep that nasty thing away. I had a Rottie when I was in high school who was the sweetest little thing ever, and loved to hang out with our Great Dane. Things really just depend on the dog in question. I never approach little dogs, a lot of them are super aggressive, and those little teeth are sharp!

I worked at a kennel for 2 years and while we didn’t have a lot of dog fights, it is bound to happen when you get that many dogs together. We were always told to never stick your hand in the middle (for obvious reasons) but instead to grab their back feet and “wheel-barrel” them away from each other. Of course, this is much easier with two people doing it, but if you’re only able to grab one it’s enough to break concentration.

@sand dollar: After working at said kennel, I would much rather walk through a room full of pits/rotties/g. shepherds etc than walk through a room of chihuahuas! Those little things can be super hateful!!!! (not meant to offend anyone with chihuahuas, there are some super sweet ones, but most of the ones boarded where I worked were not)

Poor woman. I’m glad you had the training to help. I’ve accidently been caught in the middle of a dog fight twice but luckily my bite wasn’t bad. I hope those poor dogs don’t end up getting put down because of this 🙁 The law doesn’t really care much about the reason behind an animal bite. Maybe Canada is different though.

and, just to add to the “Rotties are NOT evil” camp, there was one rottie that lived in the neighborhood where I lived a couple years as a teen and she was kind of like the “community” dog. She was very friendly. Well, I’ll be honest that she scared me at first (a big unleashed dog staring you down? who wouldn’t!) but she was funny. She’d come over and act like she lived there. We let her inside to play sometimes, and other times she would be out on the porch and act like she lived there. She would bark at the couple of cars that would drive by, lay in front of the door. She wasn’t locked in or tied down, just stayed there on her own. When it was time for her to go home, we just called the phone number on her dog tag and they’d come pick her up. The owners told us she had a “brother” that recently passed away and that’s when she started wandering off.
