This might just save your pet dog during a dog fight
Reddit is a social media platform where the users can post news and experiences. A Reddit user TheVantasy and his dog, Kenai had a bad experience and decided to share their story with the world. Luckily, the user had once read an article on the net, and he knew precisely on what had to do in such a circumstance.
Well, this is what happened: His pet dog, Kenai (2.5-year-old British Timber dog) was attacked by two dogs (Pitbulls) that belonged to a resident in his apartment complex in Los Angeles. One of the Pitbulls didn’t have a collar or a leash, in spite of the city having a leash law. When they were on their morning run, they ran into the other dogs. Even if the owner told them it would be okay, they still attempted to turn around. It's so sad with what happened!

But even before that could happen the other dogs made run for Kenai, who was unfortunately caught by one of them. The Pitbull who was on the leash had also managed to get away from his owner, but somehow his owner was able to pull him off Kenai. Unfortunately, the other Pitbull, wouldn't let go of his victim. So the user seeing that his pet dog was being attacked, clasped the hind legs of the Pitbull and pulled him with a jerk.
What the user did was that he "wheelbarrowed" the pit back from Kenai, which prevented the dog from biting him. Kenai took that opportunity to run to safety. The owner then grabbed the dog from the user, though he still wasn't having a good grip on both the dogs by himself. After making sure the owner was fine he ran off to Kenai who needed help. Do you think the owner of the pitbulls should have been more responsible?
According to the article that the user read prior to the incident what we should do in such dangerous situations is:
Grab the dog by the hind legs close to its thighs and to lift its legs as if it was a wheelbarrow. This way you're away from its teeth and giving you full control. They won't be able to lunge back at the dog they're attacking either because they'll keep falling on their face. If possible ask the owner of the other dog to do it to their dog too.
While still holding onto its hind legs, back up quickly in a zig-zag motion. Since all the weight is on its front paws now, it has no choice but to try to get its balance back. If the dogs are biting each or latched on to each other, this will force them to unhook from one another. Soon it will realize that you're in control and listen to your orders.

Kenai was then taken to the vet and after a $400 bill he was treated was able to go back home with a cone collar. Luckily for Kenai, his thick fur on his neck saved him. The Pits were actually only getting fur into their mouth, so their teeth were not able to sink into the skin. Now Kenai is his way to his fun self!
According to Kenai’s owner, and Reddit user, TheVantasy, Kenai is 90-pounds of a scaredy-cat and not to let his wolfy looks fool you and he has zero wolf content in him. We love him nevertheless and are so glad he’s better!
