    A lot depends where you are at. I lived outside of city limits in a rural area. A dog comes out and tries to bite you or your dog , the expectation is you would most likely shoot it if armed. there was a good amount of livestock around ,and loose dogs where not tolerated. Dogs even barking at horses were dispatched if they were not on their property and annoying animals.

    I would think that coyotes and dogs would fall into the same catagory

    If a dog or coyote were about to have go-around with my dog, I would probably consider that damage.

    1. One possibility; Run like your life depends on it! Stop at choke points and engage pursuers until no one continues following. Tell witnesses to call 911, and make it known you are the victim.
    2. Dog-stand your ground and shoot Kujo. If witnessed, ask someone to call 911and wait for police. If not... police your brass! SSS

    A coyote or feral dog yea you can shoot them, but someones stray pet, or a dog the got away from its owner, not sure exactly, but you still might have issues. Family pets are viewed differently than your coyotes and other critters. Your not able to hunt a family pet...

    2. I shoot the dog.

    Disparity of force. Read Ayoob when you get the chance.
    Rely on yourself, and not your dog.
    At this point, I'm wondering the purpose of the two part question or even the first or last part now.
    You are going to need to react the best you see fit at the time. I may walk into the valley of darkness with you, but I may have previous engagements. Comprende?

    Well I asked because these two situations involve no weapons at all, and I've been reading a lot of peoples' explanations involving a DA or somebody that wants to f#$% you. The first scenario was supposed to be if you were just witnessing your friend being beaten to a pulp by randoms and being able to shoot or not. Obviously if 8 people are on me I'll try to shoot, but I'm just wondering how gun laws work when you're defending somebody that's not yourself. I need to take some ccw classes and barrage the instructor with questions, but for now I'm just using this forum (kind of makes me think how it would work out if you were defending a complete stranger).

    As for the second scenario, I'd rather use pepper spray and a knife (if I have to), but I love my rottweiler, she's an amazing dog and I just want to know whether or not I'm allowed to shoot a dog because it's going after my angel ha. There's been a couple of times where random dogs will come after us when they've escaped their owners, some of them were pretty damn big dogs. Thankfully all they wanted to do was sniff her butt, but if a vicious dog comes out and attacks my dog for no reason, last resort, I want to know if I can use a gun with a clear shot. I couldn't just sit there and watch her throat being torn out by some dog that has no business being out in public.
