That officer did a pretty respectable job of initially keeping some hefty canine teeth out of his leg when he got charged.
There seems to be a question whether animal control is going to do anything to the dog or the dogs owner. The officer wants to see the dog taken off the street but if the dog has no other REPORTED history of attack then it may go free. After all, it didn't bite the officer so it may remain with a clean record.
Too bad he didn't do the community a favor and shoot the dog dead so it will never harm anyone.

It sure didn't want any part of the officer after it got tased
I'm amazed they where allowed to keep the dog. Good job on the officer defending himself. The dog needs to be put down because it is clear it is going to hurt someone sooner or later.
Next time it could be a child that can't defend it's self from an attack. This dog needs to be put down before it seriously hurts or kills someone.
Rotti's are some of the most loyal, protective, obedient dogs I've ever had the pleasure of owning and training. It really is a shame when a dog...any dog...is owned by complete, useless morons. By that I am specifically referring to dogs that are owned by hood rats that USE them as weapons or feel they gain respect by having the most aggressive dog on "da block"....thus going about whatever cruel method it takes to make the dog overly aggressive.
And no...I'm not generalizing or stereotyping. I am talking pure facts based off of my life experiences. I didn't grow up in suburbia.
It's a shame. Good dogs deserve good owners. Rotten people don't deserve dogs at all.

I agree 100%. Trained dogs are wonderful. Unchained, aggressive, attacking dogs need to be dealt with as needed.
I wouldn't have used a Taser.

The VID is a perfect example of a terrible pet owner that ruined what normally would have been a basically good, decent dog/pet.
For the most part there are no bad dogs. Only bad dog owners.
There are some exceptions to the rule AKA dogs that are bred too closely can have an inbred "mean streak" and display antisocial behavior but, that is not their fault.
That is the breeders fault.
Dogs that receive proper training too late in their lives can also be sometimes be problematic.
It is also possible for all dogs to forget themselves AKA have a "mild brain fart" and momentarily and revert back to their root behavior.
Remember that all canines are morphed from wolves and all were originally pack hunting wolf carnivores long before they were mans best friend.
The officer was more than fair in his own defense. This is a case of a dog that needed 'shootin'...IMHO
Beware of the next incident where a child is involved.

I would rather see this particular dog humanely put down....and the owners shot.
Now that I think about it, did anyone notice the officer's draw? Was it just me, or did it seem "sticky?" That is, did it seem like he had to tug a few times, as if he was stuck or not drawing correctly? That would worry me as well. However, at the same time, the delay in the draw was lucky for the dog, as it allowed the other LEO to hit him with a Taser.
That kick was excellent and well placed, though, IMO. The officer reacted without thinking, which saved him some pretty bloody wounds and bought him a bit of time to draw his sidearm.
