right to defend ourselves and our dog being attacked

We've been kicking around the idea of buying a Labradoodle and we've come across some videos on you tube of pit bulls attacking and even killing dogs and it got us wondering. What exactly is our right when it comes to defending ourselves and our dog in the event of a dog attack? So for humans, we have the right to defend ourselves and even using deadly force when necessary and allowed under certain circumstances of the law. Of course, I realize each state has different parameters of when deadly force can be used so to provide context to my question, we live in CA. I'm no lawyer but as I understand it, in CA you first have to try and avoid the conflict and have a duty to retreat. If you're not able to retreat, I believe you have to basically say stop and then if the treat continues, you have the right to use deadly force. Again, I'm no lawyer.

So when it comes to a dog attack, you can't necessarily retreat like if you're out walking because you can't outrun a dog. If a dog is attacking you and is clamped down on your arm, or leg, or whatever, what can you do within the extent of the law to stop the dog attack? If the dog is attacking your dog, what can you do within the law to stop the attack? Now I will say that if I'm out with my kids and dog and if a dog attacks my kid, I won't even hesitate to stab the dog to death because I would be carrying around and 3in pocket knife or so if I'm walking my dog with my kids. My kids life is undeniably more important than an attacking dog's life and I will not hesitate to use the knife and deadly force to stop a dog attacking my child.

Please note that this is not a question about how to tell the owner of the attacking dog to be a responsible pet owner, of whether pit bulls should be banned or not (I used a pit bull example because that's what came up on you tube as the most common aggressor), or whether Labradoodles are good dogs, etc. I think you get the point. I'm not trying to start an off topic war of words. Just curious to know what my rights would be. Thanks.

Get a fucking life. And maybe a toy dog. Never leave your house and when your dog gets in to shit, of course fetch a gun.

Dude. If you've ever been in a dog fight, even in an even one, you wouldn't be asking this. None of it.

When the moderators get complained for that answer, I would like to say I've trained police dogs, guard dogs ( both killers on command), I've trained a seeing eye dog, but my speciality is dogs with problems and the issue is always in the end of the leash.

I know my dogs and how to train them. I just am not allowed to kick the stupid out of the owners.

Happy Friday. I'll go away.

Dog is free game if it's a threat and off it's leash.

I'm also the world's worst pacifist. My Kissa, My gs I had to put down due to a brain tumor two months back I trained to eat the knees of a grown man. When she hit two (died at thee and a half) she was marked for training with only r ally nimble people. Don't know why...

But that was a dog who attacked on a painted Target on command and let go on command. Your poodles won't meet one ever.

Since I have more to say, stop being such babies. Grow some fucking balls. I can get with my upper body strength of a fly two Dobermans separate, and those went for it for reals.

Again. Don't shoot someone's dog. Just get a fucking toy

lets put it this way shall we.

My dogs are trained to take down men on command. I usually run a team of two so that's going to hurt even if you will survive.

Shoot my dog, and I'll end you.

And I'm the fucking pacifist here.

And now off to bed for me it is. I just have spent 20 years explaining to owners why they fucked up their dogs and shooting never came up since I'm European.
