You can't protect your own dog from an attack but you can get charged with assualt/battery of a police officer if you did that to a K9 unit.
OH NOW IT MAKES SENSE.
I am a dog lover and up until last summer I had my dog scout since I was 5. If I ever saw someone beating my dog I would beat the #$!% out of them. I wouldn't draw my gun--and if I had the ability I would leave my gun locked inside my house or in my car just so nothing more than a beating would take place (it would suck to start beating the crap out of the guy only to have him find your gun).
But this is assuming my dog didn't do anythign to deserve a beating. Also, this does not apply to anyone elses dog. IT sucks, but a dog is not a human and they can't be treated as such. Drawing your weapon/using your weapon in this situation would probably send you to jail. You could always mace someone beating a dog. That would probably get them to stop.
PS. Get a bigger dog that can handle itself.

~~~the biggest deficit of the general public is a lack of personal accountability.. I have no one to blame for my actions, regardless of circumstances, except myself and by the same token I can hold no one else responsible for my protection and well being other than myself~~~
