Where do we send the steaks? Because that dog deserves them. It deserves ALL THE STEAKS.

Not 'good boy'. BEST DOG!!!!

Good dog. I've always said they are better judges of character than people are.

Great Dane jumped in the way, laying over her body and taking most of the blows until the man threw both of them out of a second story window.

As far as guard dogs go, I would want my money back. Ghandi Dog was lucky.

So which one of you Farkers took a shiat in the comments section?

Putting the Great in Great Dane. Good dog!
 
2012-01-13 08:24:29 PM  
goddam best dog ever. (don't tell my dog I said that)
 
2012-01-13 08:25:59 PM  
Wow, what an amazing dog, and good on the woman for keeping him with her. Awesome story.

Now I want to read a story about how the guy with the hammer was caught, charged, convicted and put away for a long, long time.

My two Labs (one Attractive African-American and one Chocolate Brown) offer said Hero Dog a licky-face and a sniffy-butt.

We salute you!

Somebody get that dog a steak!

Who's a good boy! *scritches*

Dogs' (and Wolves') default programming is an amazing piece of work.

Diseased limb that won't heal? Amputate and move on with life.

(Stupid) pack leader in danger? Suffer the slings and arrows until the pack leader gets her act together.

Hopefully the poor lady has learned a lesson from her dog and will not stay with abusive assholes. Maybe not, but we can hope.

Couldn't a full grown great dane take out a human with ease? Even a human with a hammer?

Doggie is not img1.fark.net. Doggie is img1.fark.net.

Amazing, even the dog knew that abuse is wrong. No details on what happened to the piece of shiat with a hammer though?

Like most battered women's shelters, the Rose Brooks Center did not accommodate pets. But this was no ordinary dog: when her boyfriend tried to kill the woman with a hammer, her fearless Great Dane jumped in the way, laying over her body and taking most of the blows until the man threw both of them out of a second story window.

He Threw 'em out the window, the window, he threw 'em out the window. (new window)

machoprogrammer: Couldn't a full grown great dane take out a human with ease? Even a human with a hammer?


Yes - and then they'd put the dog down for attacking a human, no matter how much of a waste said human was.
 
2012-01-13 08:33:30 PM  
Dog should have taken a fist size chunk out of the boyfriends arse.
 
2012-01-13 08:33:30 PM  
Hoping the arresting officer turned the hammer into a very painfu

humanshrapnel: Amazing, even the dog knew that abuse is wrong. No details on what happened to the piece of shiat with a hammer though?


Hoping the arresting officer turned it into a really painful suppository. Head-end first.

Too many women stay with beaters simply because they have no place to take the pets and know that the pets would get hurt to punish the woman if they left. More shelters should have a pro-pets policy or a relationship with a local shelter / rescue agency.

Good dog. lucky woman.

My dog might be tiny by she's fierce. She's got an uncanny ability to bite for the crotch.

Please tell me that Loverboy is being passed back & forth between the Aryans and MS13 convicts in prison right now.

I too just donated to the Rose Brooks Center. Good on them and Susan Miller.
 
2012-01-13 08:44:04 PM  
Should the guy be thrown out a 4th story window to save time or a 2nd story window twice?
 
2012-01-13 08:45:00 PM  
Who's up for a road trip to help this abusive sack of shiat see the error of his ways?

Attack a friggin dog and a woman with a hammer. SOB has to sleep some time.

Getting HULK MAD.
 
2012-01-13 08:46:45 PM  
WTF? I don't know how you can beat on a dog like that...with a hammer, ffs.

A woman, sure, I understand, but a dog? Sumovabiatch must pay!


/what?

God, I wish that woman had an angry pit bull.

My niece brought home a raggedy stray a few years ago. My brother was outvoted and ended up adopting her. 6 weeks later, he wakes up to a furious dog barking, growling and howling. He runs into her room, thinking this dog is attacking his 7 year old.

The dog is in full defense mode, at the window, my niece is crying because a "monster" is outside the window. The window screen is cut. When the police get there, they find footprints and point out that her room is *NOT* the easiest way to get into the house, but it is the only window with Disney princess curtains.

TL; DR- dogs are awesome. *MUCH* better than people.

I've been wanting a dog for a long time. This just makes me want one more.

Is the dog North Korean?

Just kidding, they've have eaten him by now.

I see you have a little one, so you probably want to avoid a Dachshund.

Give that Great Dane a whole box of Scooby Snacks.

"Dog saves owner's life from abusive boyfriend. Battered women's shelter takes in both. Spiffy tag standing in because Hero tag has something in its eye"

Is it a hammer?

Seriously, mad props. My cats would do NOTHING of the sort.

My girl (american bulldog) alerts at strangers. Possible problem arises, one loud woof is all you get. Then it's a deep low growl only I can hear.

/She snores, but it's cute.

I think one of mine would, but unlike a Great Dane I assume a cat is easily killed with a hammer, so I hope I never have to find out.

Um, I disrespect yer violent reference.

If you need a hammer to kill a cat, you are overfunded.

I'll kill one with my hands, if I have to.

I hope I never have to.

I'll make it quick-click.

Sadly, I'll have to wait to get a dog. I can afford to feed one, but I'm not financially secure enough right now to afford any unexpected vet bills. Some day....

Definitely get the Dachshund then. We have one cat left, and love her, but nothing beats the love of a Dachshund!

My dog (pound rescue, part pit, part some kind of hound, part whoknows) has saved my son from two rattlesnakes, literally placed himself between my son and the snakes and barked and danced around like mad till I came to see what the fuss was about.

Also drove off an intruder on the property when my son was home. If it's just me home, he just barks a few times to let me know I should go check something out. If my son is home, he goes into full defensive froth mode.

Good dog, he knows I am the alpha, and does what I say.

Yes, he gets steak some times.

As should the dog in the TFA.
