I wouldn't hesitate coming to blows with any dog or it's moronic owner. I have had a weapon made up which comprises a piece of thick wooden curtain rod with 2 large 4" bolts attached to the end & wouldn't hesitate to drive them into anything that attacked my dogs, either the large or small ones.
That weapon was a bit large, bulky, cumbersome & obvious &, if the police stopped me, I'm pretty sure I'd get charged with a criminal offence. My latest acquisition has been 2 umbrella's with hard carbon like rods running all the way through them, but flexible enough not to snap (I hope). I am going to whittle down (with my Dremel) some very mean points on the part that sticks out from the top, that piece that's about 4-5" long, and I would not hesitate to drive it in to any attacker, 2 or 4 legged.
If you don't feel you could manage any of that, always remember, if you pick up an attacking dog by it's back legs, you've won!!! Swing it around & around & around, fling it into the air & await the next onslaught, if you haven't managed to kick it in the head & knocked some decency into its pea brain by then.
And, before anyone rattles on about cruelty to another animal, to hell with that, if it wants to attack, it'll pay the bleedin' consequences, with its very life if necessary, I don't care one iota, so long as mine are safe.
