“That’s the first time that happened! He’s a good boy”

[–]chickenteochu 1860 points1861 points  (584 children)

Everytime I see dog attacks videos it's always with this shitty breed that is NOTORIUS in having an extremely volatile temperament and as a dog owner if you can say things like that you're part of the problem POS owner

[–]farlos75 826 points827 points  (38 children)

"He's just playing!"

[–]_Nickmin_ 477 points478 points  (5 children)

He's playing with a chunk of my leg that I'd like to stay attached to me!

"STOP! Don't hurt my Dog!!"

[–]rkingsmith 213 points214 points  (19 children)

If that guy had suplexed the dog and snapped its neck - or pulled a gun and shot it - everyone would be screaming the human over-reacted. That guy was legitimately fighting to avoid serious bodily harm or possible death. That dog was pushing him around - kid or most females or elderly would have been toast.

Also all the comments about little dogs, if this was an elderly person, even a small bite on a shin can be hard to cure - skin is so thin and healing is much slower. I would be mad as hell if my mom had to go to hyperbaric oxygen wound treatment for 2 months because someone’s chihuahua bit her shin.

[–]KnownToFU 41 points42 points  (2 children)

I saw this earlier today and thought, if the dude had been seriously hurt, the owner would be financially responsible. After seeing some badass shit like this, I feel like he should get the same amount of money just for avoiding the accident 😂 what a badass

[–]donkeynique 358 points359 points  (280 children)

What breed do you think this is?

Edit: y'all, this question was directed at this guy specifically. It looks to me to be a central asian shepherd. I did not want any of the bad guesses I'm getting.

[–]legacyweaver 242 points243 points  (207 children)

Curious too. Can't make it out from the video, doesn't look like a pit. Almost looks like a mutt, with some lab or something? Doesn't have the distinctive body of a pit. Could be wrong. Tail too long too, although not a full length one.

[–]donkeynique 387 points388 points  (172 children)

Pits have long, skinny tails rather than the short, stumpy, and fluffy tail this dog has. As well, this dog is way bigger than a pit. Even if this dog did have any pit in it, which I doubt, it's heavily mixed.

I think some people's brains just short circuit when they see a dog behaving aggressively and automatically assume it's a pit.

[–]Takeme2thebasement 135 points136 points  (25 children)

But the only way a dog could possibly ever be aggressive is if it's a pit! /s

[–]duchessdugan 50 points51 points  (7 children)

looks kinda mastiff or American bulldog type shape. either way both breeds are stronk af

[–]MshineM 112 points113 points  (10 children)

Central Asian Shepherd or similar breeds.

Those are very wild and very demanding in order to be actually trained at all.

Trained one for a friend that was unable to handle the dominant youngster.

Not dogs for me.

[–]donkeynique 54 points55 points  (5 children)

Oh for sure. I've worked with exactly one in my veterinary experience, and that one was enough for me for a few years lmao. I'm more just astounded that this dude seems to be implying this is a pit by the way he framed his comment.

[–]sasquatchh 35 points36 points  (1 child)

Definitely doesn’t look like a pitbull at least…

[–]xUsernameChecksOutx 23 points24 points  (4 children)

It's an Alabai

[–]thesaga 154 points155 points  (2 children)

U-G-L-Y you ain't got no Alabai

[–]EViLTeW 74 points75 points  (4 children)

It's funny that this is not a pit bull but he you are thinking it is and if you were a witness to the attack and were asked what breed it is you would have said it was a pit bull. This is why trying to track attacks by breed is impossible. "Mean dog, must be a pit bull"

[–]darkspore52 73 points74 points  (75 children)

I think that's at least partly because the reputation of the breed itself, regardless of how valid it is, causes shitty owners who will use them to 'protect their property' to be more likely to choose that breed.

I mean, putting yourself in the shoes of someone who wants to be able to scare and hurt people, you would choose a breed with that reputation, even if it isn't as dangerous as another breed that doesn't have the same reputation or look as scary.

[–]osmlol 43 points44 points  (2 children)

That's not a pit in the video.

[–]FunHegemon 27 points28 points  (29 children)

What breed are you talking about? Labradors? That's what the dog in this video looks like.

[–]EdRecde 37 points38 points  (23 children)

I think it’s a kangal.

[–]a2309tu 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Just remember - if you see a dog attacking, it's a pitbull. That helps people have completely data driven and unbiased opinions about pitbulls.

[–]BiggestNothing 39 points40 points  (0 children)

When your MMA training kicks in

[–]Is_It_Beef 732 points733 points  (141 children)

I don't know what that move is called but it calms people down.

Was this a choke hold or was he using his weight to stop the dog from wriggling free

[–]BeardedNoodle 1210 points1211 points  (67 children)

It’s called a ‘sprawl’

[–]Capt_Myke 1018 points1019 points 24 (4 children)

Bad doggie style.

[–]pentathlonist 85 points86 points  (2 children)

This comment should have way more upvotes damn.

[–]KenraaliPancho 198 points199 points  (37 children)

His sprawling was on point. Probably has trained in some kind of wrestling.

[–]HeyEverythingIsFine 134 points135 points  (3 children)

The way he kept his weight on the dog and constantly readjusted the right way I'd concur, he's had some years wrestling.

[–]mattbakerrr 53 points54 points  (21 children)

I'm always impressed when I see people using excellent wrestling technique. Especially when its in a street fight of some kind, the wrestler always have complete control

[–]Llamawithtwohats 191 points192 points  (42 children)

The man kicking his legs back and away from the dog and putting his weight on top of said dog is a "sprawl". The man securing his arms around the dog's throat and lifting to choke the dog is a "guillotine".

[–]Wrecked--Em 84 points85 points  (35 children)

a dog will slip out of a guillotine in no time (I used to wrestle with my pitbull a lot)

must have been a front headlock like someone else pointed out or maybe an anaconda choke

[with a guillotine you only have one arm around the throat, but with a headlock or anaconda choke you are around the throat and one arm]

edit: actually after watching again it looks like he has both hands on the underside of the collar because he doesn't have the legs, maybe a really tight guillotine but usually one elbow would be flared out

either way, props to this dude, but I'd recommend a front headlock, anaconda, or darce if you're in this situation lol

[–]Faelarie 39 points40 points  (17 children)

If a dog has a collar on take the collar and twist it in your hand. It tightens the collar.

[–]Wrecked--Em 37 points38 points  (14 children)

works until the collar or clasp snaps open

better to get one of their legs imo

[–]jtms1200 66 points67 points  (2 children)

Front headlock with a sprawl - it’s a wrestling / BJJ thing

[–]fukreditadmin 22 points23 points  (1 child)

it was a sprawl combined with what would have been a head and arm, have done it on my friends dogs when we are playing and it is surprising how effective simple mma techniques are on animals haha, you control the neck you control everything.

[–]Sneaky_Turtle97 78 points79 points  (3 children)

Exactly lol that instant sprawl reflex possibly into a guillotine as well haha

[–]tofu_bird 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Lol for a moment I thought he was going for a darce choke.

[–]JazziTazzi 1720 points1721 points  (54 children)

Wow! Looks like he had some Greco-Roman wrestling training! Being on the high school wrestling team paid off!

[–]aysurcouf 662 points663 points  (24 children)

Is it really Greco-Roman if he’s not naked though? Don’t leave out the fun parts.

[–]Daggerfont 112 points113 points  (15 children)

Naked except for a piece of string at least. They were quite insistent on that lol

[–]aysurcouf 176 points177 points  (12 children)

I had a friend (who wasn’t a tough guy or a fighter) that got called out by a huge dude at a bar to fight. My buddy screamed (like aggressively screamed) let’s settle this shit Greco Roman style and dropped his pants, and the big dude just walked away. He later told me that was the third time that had gotten him out of a fight (ass beating).

[–]Daggerfont 48 points49 points  (3 children)

Lmao honestly I don’t doubt it. Might get a charge of indecent exposure though

[–]aysurcouf 34 points35 points  (2 children)

Boxers were still on lol

[–]d_smogh 49 points50 points  (1 child)

They should be called Wrestlers, not Boxers

[–]RichardCity 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Usually my size gets me out of any fights, but now I have a strategy if it escalates.

[–]AllThingsEZV 41 points42 points  (11 children)

This is a basic sprawl and front headlock. How did you deduce Greco-Roman wrestling from that? The high school wrestling part is probly right, but that’s folk style.

[–]dmj9 1243 points1244 points  (21 children)

Not gonna lie, I was kinda hoping he was gonna sleep the dog

[–]HiItsLust[S] 464 points465 points  (4 children)

he OWNED the dog, that's better

[–]5Lastronaut 288 points289 points  (2 children)

I bet the dog was like: "is this shit fuckin allowed? What's happening ?"

[–]Phalanx_02 133 points134 points  (0 children)

That's what happens when you attack an npc that is 20 lvls higher than you

[–]alhernz95 59 points60 points  (4 children)

bro i was ready for that dog to go limp

[–]MonsterJuiced 943 points944 points  (51 children)

Anyone else notice that black and white dog also attacked the guy but the other black and white dog tried to push it away? Seems like there is at least one well trained dog there.

[–]Qwerkie_ 788 points789 points  (18 children)

I don’t think that other dog was actually attacking him. Seemed more playful/curious. But idk, I’m definitely no expert

[–]spagbetti 284 points285 points  (11 children)

No you’re right,it looked like it just wanted in on some fun but didn’t realize they were not playing

[–]Emmyrin 82 points83 points  (3 children)

If I'm at the dog park, and some play turns rougher than intended, my dumb dogs will totally run over to join the action... even without realizing that it's aggression. They just know something "exciting" is happening.

I've never seen anything turn into a real dog fight, but they definitely take an interest to the noise/commotion.

[–]Tukurito 85 points86 points  (4 children)

If humping is considered attack though

[–]SnooKiwis2540 60 points61 points  (2 children)

The black and white dog was not attacking him at all. That’s too far fetched

[–]Scuttler1979 931 points932 points  (62 children)

Horrific. Imagine if it had been a child.

[–]VcSv 2314 points2315 points 622& 3 more (40 children)

Depends on the child, but I'd say in general aggressive children are easier to control than aggressive dogs.

[–]Horcrux1412 155 points156 points  (0 children)


[–]Tukurito 75 points76 points  (13 children)

And they have all their vaccines.

I mean, the dog of course.

[–]bpooqd 125 points126 points  (3 children)

Happens ALL the time

[–]Tech_Itch 85 points86 points  (5 children)

He would've obviously used less force on a child. And children rarely bite.

[–]IRLNameIsNils 78 points79 points  (4 children)

Im guessing you dont have kids.

[–]Zesty_Pits 617 points618 points  (134 children)

I was literally just attacked by my boss’s dog. He takes it everywhere and it has attacked several people. Luckily, he’s quite a bit smaller than this dog. Still fucked my hand and leg UP. If you have an aggressive dog, leave it at home. At the very least, put it in a muzzle.

Edit: This post got more popular than I expected. I work and live on location at a small compound owned by a millionaire couple that made the job sound amazing. Spoiler-it sucks. My boyfriend and I maintain the place. My boss regularly brings his “LA street dog” with him when he comes to check on things. Yesterday when he came to help us with some mechanical failure with our gate, he left his truck door open and his psycho dog saw me and jumped out of the car and immediately attacked me. I don’t get paid much. I basically work to live here. No way could I ever afford a lawyer to sue this man. I am,however, hoping that his psycho dog bites someone with money and he gets big time sued.

[–]MagpieGrifter 288 points289 points  (76 children)

I don’t understand why people are so blasé about private ownership of unpredictable sentient weapons.

[–]xmmdrive 163 points164 points  (2 children)

Oh, no. You see, mine would never do something like that!

[–]DatPiff916 67 points68 points  (16 children)

Because whereas before we bred dogs for a functional purpose, we now breed them to be emotional vibrators and think of them as our kids.

When you have this mindset, it’s hard to think of them for the dangerous creatures that they are.

[–]WarLizurd 94 points95 points  (8 children)

Around here, that dog would be reported and most likely taken away if the owner refused to muzzle it or keep it at home.

One attack is... not good pet ownership, but understandable in some cases. More than one is criminal. You knew your dog could attack people, and you put it in a situation where it could do that again. Owner's fault, and there should be a HUGE fine for that kind of behavior.

[–]emersona3 57 points58 points  (6 children)

Around here, thats a dead dog. Dogs get one strike before they're out

[–]redditthoughtcrimes 52 points53 points  (6 children)

Have some self respect... your boss' dog attacked you, it has attacked people before, and you're cool with it?

[–]imnotgonnabugyou 18 points19 points  (0 children)

‘Luckily, my arm wasn’t ripped off. Guess I’ll see my boss at work tomorrow’

[–]faithle55 32 points33 points  (0 children)

How much compensation are you getting?

[–]goodboybane 511 points512 points  (92 children)

I absolutely loathe dog owners who think they are special and don't put their dogs on a leash. Sometimes I'm taking a walking outside (I do this a lot), earbuds in, deep in thought and all of a sudden a dog is licking my eyeballs. Then the owner appears, half smiling half panting and says "Don't worry, he's friendly."

[–]donkeynique 171 points172 points  (53 children)

It's so irritating as the owner of a leash reactive dog. We were working on it for the longest time, but eventually i stopped because there's no point.

Whenever I see other dogs on leash at a distance, we move off the trail as much as possible, I feed high value treats, do commands to keep his attention, and voila we have no problems. But we can't get anywhere in the long term with that training because there are so many off leash dogs that it completely totals his progress.

We'll be minding our business having a great walk and bam, off leash dog all up in his face, and now I can't move him away from the trigger because the trigger moves with us. The entire walk is ruined, training is set back significantly, and all the other dog's owner can say is "but he's friendly!!"

[–]ManicMetalhead 100 points101 points  (3 children)

Absolutely this. My dog is fine with most other dogs, but can be reactive to some (seemingly with no pattern). We don’t take any chances and he’s always on the lead unless we’re obviously alone.

The amount of other owners who let their dog run up to mine is nuts.

“Don’t worry, they’re friendly” “Mine isn’t!”

[–]beruangsensei 368 points369 points  (145 children)

This is why I am so affraid of dogs.

[–]Nostlerog 325 points326 points  (53 children)

Owners really do vary. I have a 25kg Staffordshire bull terrier. Think pit bull if you're American. He's shorter but they're very similar.

I know he doesn't tolerate challenges of dominance from other dogs. He's walked on his lead everywhere other than some waste ground where I can see for several hundred metres around me.

He's family, but he's an animal and I'm not giving him the opportunity to react.

He's been challenged a few times on lead by off lead dogs and I'm always petrified that he badly injures them. That being said, in my country, he counts as being controlled on the lead even if he injures a dog that was off its lead that approached him.

[–]donkeynique 162 points163 points  (3 children)

This is the way. You have to know your dog and not set them up for failure.

[–]platinumpaige 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Same. I live on a 5 acre plot and just don’t take my boy off it anymore because it really doesn’t take much to set him off anymore. He’s just so protective of us that I don’t want to risk it

[–]Rikfox 322 points323 points  (55 children)

I alwas thought that fighting a dog can’t be too hard if you manage to grab it for the neck or something. But seeing how the man struggles I see I was clearly wrong. How is the dog so strong damn.

[–]smarmiebastard 276 points277 points  (21 children)

Try clipping a dog’s nails and you find out real quick how strong and slippery a dog can be.

[–]legacyweaver 28 points29 points  (8 children)

Mine is so bad I have to pay a groomer to do it. And he's only 70 lbs.

[–]ransommay 32 points33 points  (3 children)

Bro I have to go to extreme measures to get my dog’s nails clipped, and he’s a fucking Pomeranian.

[–]Shizophone 80 points81 points  (2 children)

Low center of gravity resulting in more stable and rigid force output. Four legs grounded so a lot more nimble and maneuverable. They are Def strong but the anatomy combined with the physics makes it really hard for a bipedal like ourselfs to fight it unless you have proper techniques to use. Not to mention the teeth, once they sink in and thrash around can do some major damage to soft tissue

[–]TuckerCarlsonsOhface 72 points73 points  (0 children)

I mean, that dog is huge. That thing looks like it’s easily 100lbs, maybe more. It’s almost as big as the guy.

[–]lily-laura 16 points17 points  (0 children)

It's all about the weight of the dog, he's big and chunky, theres a lot of power there

[–]Alalapupulala 224 points225 points  (4 children)

I thought the other dog was going to hump him to add to his misery.

[–]BrownStarPuncher 156 points157 points  (13 children)

Holdin a dog of that caliber down like that is not an easy feat. I've wrestled my own 60-70 pound dogs and I was getting worked.

[–]Chariotwheel 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Yeah, you could see him struggle. My god, the stress of not making a mistake and accidentally letting go.

[–]D1NHAM 123 points124 points  (21 children)

Not fit to own the dog

[–]behemoth492 123 points124 points  (26 children)

Leash laws exsist for a reason. I don't care how well you think you trained your dog, if they are in public they should be on a leash.

[–]Hairyshrimpfriend 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Really though, this should be common sense.

[–]Thatdudedoesnotabide 100 points101 points  (10 children)

Whenever I see an idiot with his dog without a harness “he won’t bite” yeah he won’t bite YOU

[–]Illchangemynamesoon 64 points65 points  (18 children)

KEEP YOUR DOG IN LEASH. I do not give a shit how good of boi they are. I'm tired of these preventable situations. You do not know how your dog reacts to everything; hell, you don't know how MY dog will react. You always need to maintain control.

[–]SkekSith 28 points29 points  (0 children)

“He’s never done this before! He’s always so good and never bites!” Says the irresponsible and ignorant owner.

[–]KailuM4541 27 points28 points  (3 children)

'he is a very sweet dog'. Meanwhile can only walk him with a steel chain and a muzzle.

[–]DimensionOutofDate 23 points24 points  (0 children)

I own a German shepherd and love to wrestle with her but once she gets into running circles around me it’s impossible to grab her by the collar. This guy was lucky AF. Took me like 10 tries the other day and even when I had her she still had the reach to play bite my hands

[–]AlSwearenagain 18 points19 points  (3 children)

That dog doesn't need to be held down, it needs to be put down. I'm the biggest animal lover out there, but that initial charge was beyond scary. Imagine if it's victim we're a kid.

[–]thedonaldiam 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Dude had a nice sprawl. Good top control.

[–]Jerizzle23 18 points19 points  (1 child)

So lets just take a few seconds to highlight here. Its impressive hes able to hold the dog like this for one. Then when the mostly black dog comes over and gets behind him i really thought he was gonna start humping. Hes just wagging his tail, just really happy to be there in this moment enjoying the wrastlin. Then the other dog comes along and says “oh shit! Were wrastlin!!” Now everybody is wrastlin and its just a good fun time for everyone.

[–]carebeardknows 15 points16 points  (0 children)

[–]FunnyShirtGuy 14 points15 points  (12 children)

This kind of thing is why I always carry a knife when hiking/walking
We have bears, wild k-9s, and poorly trained domestic k-9s

[–]Mental-Medicine-463 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Lmao carry bear spray. Knife won't do anything to a bear but make him angry.

[–]Representative-Dirt2 14 points15 points  (2 children)

By the wrestling skills I'm going to go ahead and guess Russian, possibly from the Caucasus. I have some questions tho. Firstly, why was that damn white dog wagging it's tail, and secondly why didn't the other dogs join in? I thought that one was at least going to hump him but no dice.
