I was going to recommend the same thing, or, believe it or not, a squirt gun filled with bleach. Never met a dog that didn't haul ass three blocks away after getting a face full of it. But the stun gun would be significantly better.

I found this here:

FightingArts.com - Some Personal Observations On Dealing With Dog Attacks: Part 2- If Attacked

>For attacks by lone dogs, I'll start with my old standby: A fine repellant for moderately aggressive dogs is a mix of ammonia and Tabasco sauce in a small pump sprayer. Ammonia alone works almost as well, but you have to use more, and I think the increased dose is enough to cause permanent harm to the dog. The sprayer should be set halfway between stream and mist, so that you get good coverage. It works well when sprayed into the dog's eyes, and even better if you can get it into the mouth and nostrils, too. After you've used it once, all you need to do is flash the bottle at the dog and it will leave you alone. The spray has caused no permanent physical damage to the dogs I've used it on and hardly any discomfort to me.<

yes to ammonia, and someone else said bleach. Think of shining a light in a vampires eyes. spraying extremely strong smelling chemicals in the face of an animal with such a keen and sensitive sense of smell has to be pure agony.

In this part of OK folks take their unwanted dogs to the country and turn them loose. i've been attacked twice while hunting. The small and medium sized dogs soon get eaten by coyotes. The coyotes can't deal one on one with a Pit bull or Rottweiler. Any dog that attacks me is gets shot-period: No if ands or buts.

Friends have had their pets killed and their livestock torn up by dogs. Our county does not have a dog warden. The county sheriff encourages citizens to handle dog problems themselves. If off leash and is pestering pets, livestock or humans it's fair game.

It would be far more humane to have a vet euthanize the animal, or if that's too pricey for some people, to shoot the dog than to leave the animal to starvation and predators.

Yeah, a stray cat can make it on it's own, dogs after a while just cant make it. Oh, they'll survive for a while, but eventually they will starve or get eaten.

Feral dogs are a SERIOUS problem!! They revert to their wild ways but without the natural fear of humans...a VERY dangerous combo.

Not always true. Dogs will revert to their wild ways and pack up. A pack of feral dogs is more dangerous than a pack of wild wolves for reasons stated above.

Despite all the coyotes, i see a feral cat now and then while hunting. One came in to my predator caller. The sucker knew that rabbit in distress sound.

Y'all must be a better, faster shot than me.

IDK if I could draw, aim, and fire accurately

before the dog ate my arm.

Two things:

1) Cops LOVE dogs. Wouldn't want to tell a LEO

I shot a dog under any circumstances.

2) It seems to me a club or large stick would simply ward off a dog better?

What about some rat shot in a .22 (maybe a .38) revolver? That should be enough to run rover off, probably with no mortal damage unless rover got it in the face. CCI Shotshell Ammunition 22 Long Rifle 31 Grain #12 Shot Box of 20 - MidwayUSA Hard to miss, as well. A hollowpoint round could be loaded every third or fourth chamber, just in case.
