Sorry for the extremely long title but my friends and I were having an argument over this!
Say your in your back yard and someone attackes you with intention to kill you(Motive does nto matter) he comes at you with a knife; you push him and he falls down. With the knife out of this hand your dog tears his throat and kills him. So will the country or province/state make you put your dog down?
So I personally think that this should be treated as self-defense as your dog was protecting you from dying. I think the dog does not need to be put down(Unless he tastes blood and for whatever reason starts attacking people at random). So does anyone know if there is a law in Canada or the United States that says if your dog kills someone while defending you from death needs to be put down?
