Thumbs down So my girlfriends dog just bit my face to hell

Hey, forum

Not really sure where to post this so I figured here is a good start. My girlfriend of 4 years, whom I love, has a cocker spaniel, whom I truly despise. Now this dog is a straight up POS. He bites everyone. Growls, snarls and barks at everyone even if he knows them. He is used to me though. I feed him, give him water, walk him and throw the ball for him and even buy him toys which he gets very protective of and loves.

About an hour ago, my girlfriend decided to wash the dog and no that is not a euphemism. The dog is washed and I begin to dry him. I do his back, belly, head, ears and move to his hind feet. Out of no where, he leaps full force and bites my entire face. His bottom jaw went in my mouth bashing my teeth on its way in. His top teeth punctured 2 holes right near my left eye brow and slashed my nose the entirety of its length almost. Bleeding quite profusely I washed it, put tons of pressure got it under control and stormed out thinking "My face is now scared for life because of a dog I only pretend to like for my girlfriends own happiness."

Now you have to understand...I was furious and adrenaline pumped. You could actually call me scarface now. What do I do? I don't want to just pretend like it never happened. I will not put my tail between my legs and act like I was at fault when I was not. I will not just go back to everything being normal...I can't...can I? I mean what does that say about me? Her dog thrashed my face and I just stick around happy-go-lucky? Some context...we are both good looking people, young, smart and in college and both trying towards a career in medicine. She did act concerned but at the same time I felt like she was just thinking "Ohh you dog you I can't believe you."


What would you do? I mean...what can you do? I can't give her an ultimatum or some dramatic crap like that can I? I'm at a loss here. It was a great day/night...and then the dog turned me in to bloodyface.

Best,
Scarface....

edit: I'd just like to reiterate that this is my face we are talking about here...it is something I will look at everyday of my life and something everyone will always see all the time.

Dog is a menace and the fact that she's keeping the dog after it attacked you basically tells you what she thinks about the relationship. I vote ultimatum, but if you want to try to make it work at least demand obedience school

She needs to watch some Dog Whisperer, shes reinforcing the bad behavior which is a common theme in the show

Sorry to hear about the attack and your face. I'll pray for your successful recovery, including any plastic surgery if required.

Do you have health insurance? (Everyone, of course, has to have it under Obamacare or be fined). If so, your insurance company may pay its required share of the medical bills. Even so, in most states (and I don't see why Texas would be any different), even if she is your girlfriend, it's her dog, and she is legally responsible if it bites you and injures you. I'm not a lawyer, but I don't think that the fact that she is your girlfriend exempts her from that (though that might be the case if you were married and she was your wife). So, even if the insurance company pays YOUR medical bills, theoretically, THEY could turn around and go after your girl friend to recover those expenses.....that's one reason why there is so much paperwork on a claim. Last, if your girl friend did not have the dog rabies-vaccined (which is also the law in many states), the dog may, by law, have to be examined for any sign of rabies. If found, you may need to also have a rabies-vaccine. It used to be a rather painful series of shots in the stomach, but I think that they have simpler and less-painful treatments now.

True, all these complications may not do your relationship with her much good if you truly love her (and vice-versa), but, nevertheless, at least some of them may be required by law. With pet-ownership goes certain (and potential) responsibilities.

You need to do something about it. What if the dog attacks an artery in your neck next? If those wounds are deep and big you might want to get stitches to lessen the chance of the wounds turning into craters.

Tough spot, being in a relationship for 4 years. How serious is it???

IMO its your girlfriend's turn to determine where this goes. I would not own a vicious dog that bites people, I don't care who it bit, boyfriend, stranger, child, an ******* who deserved it.

DOG WOULD BE GONE.

Talk to your girl about it, if she really does care about you that dog will be gone IMO.

My advice?

Dogs are known to run in front of cars from time to time.

It's an indoor dog. She lives in an apartment complex with 2 room mates so the dog sleeps with us. Staying away from the dog would be staying away all around. Is this what you recommend?

She wouldn't do obedience school guaranteed. The dog is mental...if it does not know you he will bite you. Even the vets refuse to treat him unless putting him under for every single visit no matter how small the matter...either that or the vet has to simply over power him and just control him with brute force while a nurse does the swab, injection etc. Thats why I say obedience school is out of the question.

THIS! Man everytime he acts like crap..she just picks him up and soft talks him "yeah yeah stop it stop it" and holds him..but her voice is soothing not punishing...which totally sounds like reinforcing behavior for a dog. I hate it and get upset and try to correct it by being firm but then I turn into the "bad guy" by being mad and she says "he's just a dog."

Tonight he just straight up surprised me. Another time he bit me while actually hugging him he drew blood directly from my eye brow...that one sucked because I got blood in my eye ball....smh.

I really would hate to get involved with these matters with her. It just makes everything all the more "I'm me and you're you." Right now we're a "us" lol if that makes sense. Like I said I've stopped the bleeding...the worst one wont stop as it every now and then just leaks blood down my face. I dry it, pressure it and stop it. Then it'll happen several minutes later. Thats only happened twice though so I'm hoping it stops so that I need to go get stitches.

2 are deep, round and not small but decent in size. The one on my nose is huge in length but not as deep. I'm doing research on how to tell if I need stitches or not. I should decide with in the next hour. As for the dog maybe biting me at an artery next time...I doubt I'll ever see the dog again.

You see I agree with you 99999%. I was raised with the same philosophy of dogs and them being vicious and ownership etc. She told me the dog is being picked up by her mom on Tuesday but only because her mom is afraid that I'm going to press charges and have the dog put down...which I am not going to do. But now the dog is out of the picture not out of respect for me but simply because her crazy mother doesn't want it to be put down.

^^^Will do. Never thought it would be so tuff to pick a course of action in this kind of situation. It's odd.
