Apparently the silly dog has a go at one every year!

Maybe it's got a thing for accupuncture?

I've seen some pretty bad dogs, but none as bad as that. It seems to happen worst to the breed with the more intense "kill" instinct - other dogs seem to get a few & immediately let go. I've had horses get them in their nose (both were male, gelded); porcupines just love to get into the grain in the trough & the horse thinks he can just drive the thing off. I was reading the responses; the one about the guys up in the woods, with 3 holding the dog down, and the 1 doing the yanking - I hope that they knew enough to snip off the tip, to break the suction, otherwise, talk about cruelty!!
At least the porcupine was only using his defenses; leave him alone, and no one gets hurt...

The dog is a pit bull, so probably both.

That's a bull terrier, different from a pit, Spuds McKenzie, if you remember Bud Light's spokesdog, was a bull terrier.
I must say though, sweet dogs they are, I've never met one I'd call smart.

The pit bull's full name is an American Pit bull Terrier, or Bull Terrier for short. They are one and the same.

They are two seperate breeds.
Bull Terriers come in Standard and minature, they have no break from the forehead down to the snout, and they are long nosed, giving them a roman nosed and oval headed appearance.

Trust me, I've worked over 20 years with pitbulls, I know my bully breeds.

I looked at the picture and I tought the dog looked like a pit bull, but I couldn't see the face because of the needles. Before they got the needles off, yes, she is not a pit bull.

Bull terriers, especially the minatures, remind me of bloated Jack Russels

I laughed at the "never met one I'd call smart"...
A friend in school used to have 3 dogs, one of them being a Bull terrier (I was always a bit turned off by their look but they can be cute in that weird way too)..

You would throw the ball for all of the dogs, and the Bully would run in circles never seeing where the d*mn ball went!

And here I was thinking that poor porcupine. Yeah the dog was hurt, but I'll lay money on the porcupine not living through the attack.

The porcupine actually came up near the house and so they are testing it for rabies, It didn't walk away from this one I'm afraid
I'm afraid the porcupine did not survive the encounter.
post #21 of 23
they said they had to take the porcupine ot be tested for rabies - which means the only way they can do this is dead. When at the New Orleans zoo, I learned that they back up into their attacker and keep backing up until they can do no more. They don't shoot their quills like thought. I ofund that interesting!
