Took max for a quick walk before leaving for work today. As we passed this house, the owner came out the door to do something and is busy petting and saying hi to max. Seems his dog (who does not like Max) was able to open the door and he came out rushing towards Max. Knocked him over and went straight for the abdominal area.

I don't know if this is minor or not. I am worried about some kind of internal bruising?

Max was on the ground curled up and crying out, while the owner was trying to pull the other dog's head back and I had grabbed onto the skin on the back and was pulling as hard as I could. The owner kept saying he had the dog, but he didn't, I was getting reading to kick him, but the owner finally got the dog. The dog probably has at least 30 lbs on max - some kind of Malamute-ish dog. For all of Max's reactiveness, he's a lover, not a fighter.

I am very worried about area right below the ribs - no puncture mark at all, but yelping.


There are a bunch of nick marks on his belly and - I saw one small bruise so far.

There is one puncture mark that I can find. It is on the shaft of his penis. All sorts of dark blood was coming through the penal shaft, it is starting to swell. I was thinking that this was just the skin around there, ouch, I so hope his penis isn't punctured???

He is trying to get comfortable, but it's hard it seems.

We have a vet appt at 2:20. I am going to the vet that also does ultrasounds - she will have a better understanding of the internal workings. Otherwise I would have taken a sooner appointment.

The owner is one of the few that really likes Max and always gives him attention and snuzzles, he felt bad. Of course, this is the first time the other dog has ever done anything like this (why is that always the case)?

I feel bad that I wasn't able to protect max. I was on the wrong side to block or interfere. The dog ran out at full speed, and both Max and the owner were closer to the dog than I.

He is clearly not comfortable frown

Oh that sounds awful, poor Max and poor Lisa. It's good you were able to get an appointment with the right vet so quickly.

I really hope he's fine.

Oh no that is so awful! I totally understand how you must feel, that you couldn't prevent what happened. hugging

Please do let us know how it goes with the vet, I hope Max is just going to be a little sore for a while.

At least you are on good terms with your neighbor, hopefully he will help out with the vet bill.
