It takes a special kind of stupid to swing shit at a Dobermann.


Murphysburger

I'm sure it's the last time he will try that.


GhostSierra117

Can't wait for the sequel titled: *Bro, should we try it with a Rottweiler?*

dekonstruktr

Doberman and rottweiler are essentially bred now to be guard dogs and attack people. Tbh I don't trust any German dogs, they will fuck you up


[deleted]

Belgian Malinois has entered the chat. Those things are terrifying.


Surfguitar

Really? My buddy has one. Great dog. Insane energy but happy, friendly, will make you play with him no matter what. Super smart and trainable. I thought they were more working dog than attack dog.


[deleted]

My neighbor has two. Im not scared of them per say, but I’ve seen what those girls can do. They are trained protection dogs and they will fuck you up.


disktoaster

I saw one run into a house full of meth cooks once and in less than 30 seconds the house was EMPTY and everyone was outside desperately holding the doors shut. Looked up videos afterward and saw one pull a gunman out of a second story window (from the ground), jump clean over a minivan and take down another... Yeah they're ridiculous attack/defense dogs. And intelligent as all hell. So they can make good pets if you know what the hell you're doing and have the energy to keep up. Not recommended otherwise.


P_Grammicus

That was true, but they’re getting popular and thus overbred. Same sad story as GSDs a generation previously. Their over abundance of game makes them easy to ruin. I had a Belgian twenty years ago and she was one of the best dogs I’ve had, even though she had a hard start in life. All she wanted was attention, guidance and stuff to do, but that’s too much for a lot of people.


longhairedape

You can still get really good GSDs if you look hard enough. I have one. And it is an amazing dog. Good breeder, good lines, all working dogs in her pedigree. GOD'S got fucked up by showlines. They bred them for looks and fucked up their temperment in the process. In Germany even the showlines have to pass the S.V. but watching those dogs compared to the working dogs it is like a completely different breed altogether. You're right about mals as well. Lot of idiots breeding them for a quick buck and fucking with the breed standard without even knowing it.


P_Grammicus

Absolutely. My BIL has two GSDs and they are outstanding dogs. It’s a shame that there were so many troubled ones out there, and I’m glad to see them starting to make a proper comeback.


[deleted]

They’re very popular with police or military for their energy and ability to attack. Great dogs, but they do take a special owner


cphusker

They are bred to be working dogs and as such need a "job" to keep them happy. They are also very smart and athletic AF. I've seen video of a trainer using his back as a springboard and the Belgian launching up a 20 foot stone wall. Unbelievable.


ChrisFox-NJ

Guess they‘re like german shepherds, they use them as police dogs as far as I‘m aware


vetheros37

They are from Belgium


VonRansak

After all, they share a border with ... The Dutch.


vetheros37

There's two things I can't stand. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures.... and [the Dutch!](https://youtu.be/khUporxh9IU)

PicaDiet

My neighbor has three Dachshunds. When one barks they all bark. We call them "The Germans". They won't fuck up anything larger than a chipmunk.


rawbdor

I guess you never heard about the woman who was killed by a pack of seven Dachshunds? https://time.com/5280769/dog-attack-dachshund-woman-oklahoma-death/


Flowy_Aerie_77

I can just imagine what are the odds of getting attacked by a pack of sausage dogs and also dying from it?. What a way to go.


racketmaster

That's some fucked up darwinism there.


DaytonaDemon

Yeah, not really. >Six of the dogs were likely dachshund-**terrier** mixes, and one was a **border collie** mix. Emphasis mine.


bugphotoguy

It literally means badger dog. They were bred to hunt badgers. I'm sure they could be trained to attack bigger things, if one were so inclined.


penispumpermd

honey badger dont give a shit about no weiner dogs


granos

Dachshunds we’re bred for hunting badgers. They can definitely mess up stuff bigger than a chipmunk.


supportforalderan

Dachshunds were bred to fight badgers. They're tenacious little things. Even the miniature ones.


BangoSkank1919

As a cable service tech turned electrician now over a decade, the only animal that has ever bitten me while on a job was a Dachshund.


Bunny__Vicious

You’ve clearly never seen a dachshund go up against a possum. Mine kept destroying them, nearly always a good bit larger than herself. She’s was cute but maybe a bit terrifying.


mikemikeskiboardbike

My first dog was a rottie and he was such a big baby. Sure miss him sometimes.


DancesWithBadgers

Better add Weimaraners to that list too, then.


Mehmeh111111

I'm such an idiot and I always see "Weimaraners" and my brain reads it as "Weiner dogs" and let me tell you, that produced a very fun image here.


Fantastic_Fox_9497

My brain reads it as weemer neemers even though it should know better


Briezerr

Dachshund’s -CAN- get feisty as well. But most I’ve met are dopey, long goobers.


ninjarob420

I've had a weimaraner before and was not vicious at all, then again I didn't raise from a pup to be that way either


DancesWithBadgers

The dog is basically a dobermann in a dinner jacket. They are capable of wrecking you if they want to.


mega-stedman

Sadly, I’m not.


diffcalculus

While said dog is being held by spaghetti leash


MrMashed

I constantly see people with these giant dogs known for their strength with these tiny ass wet spaghetti noddle leashes while simultaneously seein people with lil teeny Chihuahuas on these big metal chain leashes like Fido’s gonna need all that. I’m sorry but if you can’t even buy your dog the right kind of leash then you don’t need a dog in the first place


UncannyTarotSpread

One of my neighbors walks his two large lab mixes with those retractable leashes and it infuriates me to see it, considering one has already bitten a guy in the neighborhood.


nick-pappagiorgio65

"Look, spaghetti arms. This is my dance space. This is your dance space. I don't go into yours, you don't go into mine. You gotta hold the frame" 🎵With these, hungry eyes, one look at you and I can disguise!🎵


Kharnyx808

The leash got scared and ceased to exist.


El_Orenz

Moreover, the dog already looked uncomfortable and distressed: look at how it has the tongue sticking out, and ears pointing backwards. The dog was not happy at all about the situation even before feeling assaulted. Like, was there another possible outcome? What were they expecting?


No_Arugula8915

It probably was not the first time it was hit. It is highly likely, watching the dog, it had been hit several times before filming began. Sadly, that dog will most likely be put down for defending itself.


Mammoth-Access-1181

That's what I'm afraid of too. The moment the vid started I immediately thought poor dog...


TransBoozeBunny

They should put down the humans instead. :(


hey_rowsdower

My friend has a Doberman. Sweetest, dumbest dog around. But sometimes, he'll remind me that yup, that's a goddamn Doberman.


PM_me_yer_VaJayJay

Friend has a Doberman. Lovely dog. Its farts make me want to cry. It's farts add a weird humidity to the room that lingers thick, is unmovable, and make my skin bubble. To the point where he invites me over to watch a game or my wife and I for dinner and we have to ask if lou gonna be there?


hey_rowsdower

I can confirm. Doberman farts are a crime against humanity


RabbitFluffs

Yep. My German sheps are the same way. Can change from tongue lolling cuddle buddies to terrifying guard dogs in an instant.


Threadgood

Anyone else rooting for the dog?


Kharnyx808

Everybody is rooting for the dog. Even the leash was rooting for the dog.


Ciabattabunns

The leash: oh no ^I’ve ^slipped


Ok-Study-1153

Neither of the guys in the video where rooting for the dog. Otherwise they wouldn’t have had a coordinated effort to hurt the dog.


ThatCoryGuy

The camera person clearly was; just sat there filming.


Threadgood

Exactly my point. Also a bit of a rhetorical question but apparently I’ve ruffled some feathers with my pre-coffee, morning shit comment.


Electrical-Act-7170

Well, duh. People who tease animals gonna get chomped.


dog_hair_dinner

Maybe teasing by human standards. He actually hit the dog with whatever that was. To an animal, that's a direct threat.


Nate40337

*That's assault, brotha*.


Responsible_Post_388

Me. Animal abuse deserves what it gets.


watsonthedragon

Umm that’s the point of the post…?


Gorman2462

Everyone is rooting for the dog silly


SmokyTrumpets

Can't help but think the gene pool is better off :-/


WredditSmark

You mean the dog on the picture where it says BEWARE OF DOG?


Kharnyx808

Yeah, that one! The #symbol of canine danger


Unhappy-Trouble8383

The only advantage we have is our brain. Swinging first definitely sacrifices that.


octopoddle

"One fight, please."


Dutch-Sculptor

If grey shirt dude is the owner, he got bitten in the arm aswel. Black shirt dude got what he deserved.


Thanatos-13

Well deserved. He did jack shit to stop the man attacking the dog in the first place. It almost seems like he's on board with whatever the fuck they are doing to the dog.


dpezpoopsies

Was wondering the same thing. Jury is out but we could be looking at two trash humans and a poor dog


HeilContra

I'm from Egypt, and these 2 spoke and looked like some of our shittiest segments of our youth. What they were doing is teasing the dog so he becomes more violent it's a known technique here that is heartbreaking in the methods they use. this one is actually a mild one. some of them include inflicting pain on the dog so he could get more aggressive quickly.


degenererad

So these 2 fuckin assholes should be shot on sight, thats what you are saying.


Kaelarael

I am all for some intense violence to people like this. Shitbags.


HeilContra

yep I wish all who do this would get shot tbh. the amount of cruelty they inflict is unimaginable


Kraqrjack

It was obvious to me that the owner was expecting to hold on to the dog but lost control. Totally felt like the owner was showing off his vicious dog. I felt like the dog is the victim here.


SparseGhostC2C

If anyone looks at this and thinks the dog is not the victim, they are wrong.


clckwrks

The jury is in session the owner is a dirtbag


SpadeHAZE

I second this notion


dragon_fire_10

I third this notion I also notion forward to the jury that the two men take the dogs punishment instead


Oldmanwickles

Judge here and I find this man a shitstain on the underwear of justice and dog ownership


daikarasu

Appellate court Judge here, we've passed on appealing this case. The judgement stands


aj0457

All in agreement say “aye.”


Mindless-Delay720

Dog acted like a dog and swift justice was served to both parties


dirtykirty3

Justice would be the dog being taken away from the shitty ass owner. The dog deserves better treatment. As for the two humans well I think the dog deserved to chew off a little more of them.


KenTheTech

Doggo needs more justice, and some snacks for being good boi, or girl (couldn’t tell in the video) I can’t imagine what that doggos home life is like, poor buddy, he just wants to snuggle on the couch and get fast on treats, go for walks and car rides to the park and just do doggo things, but these two fuckwits gotta be utter trash


Sacr3dangel

Aye!


SparseGhostC2C

I don't think the jury is out, there's like 5 full seconds of asshole with stick lining up and taking test swings, owner does NOTHING to stop it. Everyone involved here is complicit unless there's someone out of frame holding dog owner at fucking gunpoint. These are shitheads that are perfectly fine with inflicting harm, they are shit, end of argument.


No_Arugula8915

The most tragic thing is that dog will most likely be put down for that.


oberynmviper

Maybe three trash humans. Cameraman may have been involved too since it all looks staged…of course, it didn’t seems to go as planned.


stateissuedfemoid

It’s super obvious that the owner was a part of this and this was planned/both of their idea/he allowed it/this is both of their idea of a funny joke.


hobbyhoarder

Some people have really backward ideas on training a dog, but shit like this used to be recommended. My great grandfather had a book on training dogs, and there was a section in there how you should arrange for a stranger (to the dog) to come over and hit him with a stick. This was supposed to teach the dog not to trust strangers. This was literally in a published book.


Far-Bookkeeper-9695

My father was a trainer for the k9 academy in the early seventies. And I can confirm that yes this is a real thing. It's exactly like the other poster said, is to get the dog to not trust other ppl. For the record, the way my father did it, he didn't have anybody smack the dog really, but he talked someone into sneaking around windows and peeking around and acting all around suspicious, and swing at the dog, but not actually hit it cuz he didn't want the dog to lose any confidence in itself, but still could put suspicion into them.


schmetterlingonberry

>but he talked someone into sneaking around windows and peeking around and acting all around suspicious, and swing at the dog, but not actually hit it cuz he didn't want the dog to lose any confidence in itself, but still could put suspicion into them. Damn that is good thinking on your Dad's part. Training a partner instead of an aggresive pile of teeth covered in muscle and fur.


hyperjoint

My dog busted up a break and enter and that experience may have been why he had anxiety at night. A behaviour therapist had me reenact the scene over and over till he was cool with me coming in the window at all hours. Protecting the house and lady of the house were pre installed features. It's a good sleep that we had to work on.


medical_mumbo_jumbo

Good for you putting in the time for your pup's peace of mind. Sorry for the trauma both of you went through. Hopefully they're doing better now!


maccorf

Things like this remind me of why it bothers me so much when people act like you’re the crazy one for wanting them to keep their pit bull away from you. Motherfucker, I don’t trust any dog, and any owner, cause I don’t know what the fuck goes on in your house. I certainly dont trust a pit bull without a leash, gtfo. Edit: leash not lease


Warg247

I love dogs, but any dog that I don't know and especially one big enough to hurt me or my kid is not welcome without careful introduction. Dogs are still animals and can do unpredictable shit, especially in new situations. A lot of people anthropomorphise the shit out of animals and expect them to think like humans.


maccorf

Exactly, and they all say the same thing, “my dog would never do anything like that.” Until they do.


fongletto

And then after they do it's "oh he didn't mean it, it wasn't that bad". Happened to me. A few years later their dogs tore up an old lady and got put down. Only for them to get 4 new dogs.


JornWS

I've got a GSD and she is ridiculously friendly, but also very excitable. She could easily hurt a kid by complete accident, so having her close and under control is definitely needed around kids or unsure people.


furious_tesla

He could be one of those dumbasses who gets a Dobermann/Rottweiler/Pitbull to "look fierce" and is getting his friend to "train" his dog to be wary of strangers.


BkForty

Looks like a tik tok or something......he definitely seems down with whatever is happening


Mania-jsk

Was looking for this comment, seems like he's in on it, allowing tho other one to hit the dog and looking for the dog's reaction.


alreadypiecrust

It looks like the grey shirt guy was in on this fiasco.


rtyuik7

GreyShirt was trying to stop (his own) Dog from biting BlackShirt... ...and Dog took that personally..."the friend of my enemy is my enemy", or however that phrase went


Euphoric-Delirium

Also.. "Hey motherfucker, you let him hit me."


Garoxxar

Well, he sure did find out...


imsohungrydudee

Kind of annoyed at the cameraman, least he could’ve done was pour BBQ sauce on the guy’s leg


mothertrucker03

Late-Eye-6936

What's steak earrings, precious?


mothertrucker03

As in made of meat 🥩 so the dog eats them then these cruel idiots


DrMonkeyMcKenzie

They are all pieces of complete shit, except the poor pup


qpFacts

People who think animals are dumb, are usually dumber than animals.


Level_Vehicle

Lesson learned


csukoh78

I doubt he learned anything. There's a weird relationship between learning and common sense with someone who decides to mess with an animal. The lack of one reinforces the lack of the other.


cliffdiver770

on a nature tour in CA a park ranger told us that snake bite victims are primarily intoxicated white males with tattoos. Thought it was funny. then end of the tour saw two surfer dudes matching that description jabbing a stick at something in the bushes.


KillerKatNips

This is how good dogs get labeled as vicious.


csukoh78

Unfortunately. Stupid should be more painful, and attacked, defensive animals more forgiven.


UncleBenders

Good dog 🐶


FuriousGeorge50

Thats the dumbest possible thing to do. Agitating a calm dog which is known to defend on instinct is..darwinian stupid.


doogs914

I think we're all in agreement matey was a cunt


Captain_Kirby240

Not just matey the owner was holding the dog in place for the fucking guy, hope this dog gets a better home


FarAmphibian4236

I just thought about the possibility that the owner had his friend hold him, or neither own him


Hounmlayn

I was assuming it was a stolen dog


CenturionCarmine

Smack an animal with a stick and get attacked. What a surprise. What sucks is I bet you the dog somehow got blamed for this


Skippy7397

Not with the video evidence.


stellardaisy

Maybe don’t do that


GillyMonster18

Hit the big fuzzy thing that has sharp teeth and claws? #SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA TO ME!


OphiliaPoe

Old_Translator9405

Hope the dog was ok after bitting a piece of shit like that


[deleted]

[удалено]


DMurBOOBS-I-Dare-You

If this is the US, and it was reported, that dog is likely dead. Aggressive animals, *even if provoked,* are often euthanized after attacking a human. Which just ups the asshole quotient on these fucking idiots.


blurtflucker

Not as often as you might think. My neighbors Pitt bit me and then a week later went after my daughter while she was standing on our own porch, my wife got our daughter in the house fast but as they ran in our front door the dog bit my wife's leg and shook but quickly let go as the owner came running. You could see individual teeth marks and her entire calf was bruised for 2 or 3 weeks. Called animal control both times, even got video of it and animal control did next to nothing. They got a warning and supposedly have to pay for some extra insurance in case he bites again. Also, now the dog is required to wear a muzzle if out on walks. I asked animal control "so what happens if next time he bites my daughter in the face" and his response was "well then they have to pay more for insurance"


fourleafclover13

That is bullshit it would not fly when I was an officer.


Jealous_Onion

Wtf did he even expect to happen?


Merchantmarx

He'd smack the dog, the dog owner apologizes, then 12 sexy women come out of the bushes to give him a million dollars and blowjobs.


mark636199

If I had a nickel for everytime that happened to me I would have 2 nickels which isn't a lot but it's weird it happened twice


-aether-

They're "training" the dog to not react. I assume that's his friend hitting the dog while he tries to hold it


Igivenotoneshit

Dobie even bit the owner for pulling him off the douche bag. 😂😂😂


UltraLobsterMan

Owner deserved it too.


yazzy1233

emilydickinsonstan

it would have been so easy to just… not intentionally aggravate a dog??? wild concept ik


87thcoldsoul

Wtf is goong on in this video?


sandwhale-

Unclear, but my suspicion is that these two jackasses are involved in dog fighting and are trying to “train” their dog to be aggressive. Dog fighting breeders frequently abuse dogs to make them more aggressive.


midnight_peanut

I saw it more as they are training a guard dog and he was trying to show that the dog isn’t reactive to anything unless given a voice command. If you’ve seen any training videos for guard dogs, they always pull this type of shit to show how obedient the dog is.


Symphonette

Good. Fuck both of these people, keep biting little guy!


Aenhimal

Those people shouldn’t be allowed to have or be near any canine. In fact I think reproducing shouldn’t be allowed for them as well…


Blender_Plays

Well he smacked the dog so it's his fault


AloofyNGNM

Why the fuck would you do that to a dog? Especially to a doberman...


Psychotherapist-286

If you did that to another person, what would happen? Don’t blame the dog.


Vegetable_Pudding_75

Hope the dog is okay. Love dobermans


Bathroomhero

They certainly are beautiful dogs, Germany has some incredible dog breeds.


thisisQualia

Yes, Dobermanns function like this. Try to hurt my humans... I attack. Try to hurt me... I attack. In sum... you cross the line... I attack. Simple and pragmatic creatures, right?


Big_Hefty79

Correct, they are very protective of their homes and owners, but they will not do this unless they feel the danger is too much. My female doberman will change her bark to a deeper tone to let you know she means business, but she will still stay back and not approach who/whatever she's barking at. We haven't been put in a position like this, but I'm sure she would do the same. Only difference from this kid is I know how to control her.


Septemily

That poor dog is probably gonna be put down now because it is seen as aggressive and attacked humans. Damn, people are just awful. That guy had it coming.


Why_Lord_Just_Why

Most likely. And the video won’t help because the owner couldn’t pull him off. And it’s partially his fault, too, for letting that little shit hit the dog. 🤬🤬🤬


Pineapple254

Partially?? This is 💯 the fault of both of these idiots.


[deleted]

So partially the idiot owner and partially his idiot friend? 🧐


pbharadwaj

Fr. If someone treated my dog like that, you would have to restrain me instead of my good boy.


raul_muad_dib

It's not just partially his fault. Notice the dog attacked both of them.


one_of_orlandos_hos

It's his fault anyway but that happens. It's hard for the dog to figure out whose arm is whose in the middle of it all.


JunieBeth

I hope this video can be used to prove the dog was provoked. That guy deserved it.


Exhausted_Lady

Something about the way the asshole holding the dog (knowingly holding in target position for being hit) says that this is a trained attack dog to me. I don’t know if it would be put down.


leonjetski

A trained attack dog has recall drilled into it to break off the attack. This dog clearly doesn’t.


Exhausted_Lady

Either way these guys are shitbags for intentionally hitting the dog with a stick.


SupperIsSuperSuperb

While that's true, plenty of trained dogs ignore recalls after they bite someone and get their adrenaline pumping


CodyDog4President

Do these guys look competend to you? They were trying to train an attack dog. They are too stupid to foresee that the dog would attack.


Lost-Contribution196

Works for me. You smack a dog in the face like that you fuckin learn quickly


Horseyboy21

Problem is the Dog will now be worse off. I hope the Dog doesn’t get put down. Stupid owner too. Ridiculous people


imaginedracula

To the dumb boy I ask, "what was your endgame" ?


GeococcyxSonorense
