An oar to the head

I would also talk to your lawyer and serve them with a notice that if their dog ever comes on your property or threatens your family again they will be on the receiving end of a lawsuit. Might make them think twice about trying to sue you over their bullshit, if they decide to sue anyway make sure to counter sue. I think you would walk out of court the victor with video evidence of multiple encounters.
Hope it all ends well for you.
We have a contemptuous little poodle across the street. When ever it is out and I come home, the little furball actually runs into my yard and up my front steps to attack before I get to the door. I have kicked it back down the steps before. I almost cleared leather last time and the neighbor lady did have a cow, came running over screaming "No don't, I'll get him"! I told her the dog has no business charging us in our own yard and if it actually bites one of my grandchildren, it's a goner.
And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him;... Genesis 16:12
I'd back off with all the lawsuit crap. That's what is turning our country into a bunch of sue happy idiots. I'll sue, is that really the answer?? You still have to live next to these people. Starting up an expensive lawsuit over a dog really?? It may just turn into a bigger problem than you anticipated.
Hopefully they got the hint that precious is a wacko aggressive dog. You have your video and a paper trail from the cops. Next time your attacked it will be in your rights to defend yourself. Bang flop... End of problem. Keep the camera rolling.
The dogs have been roaming "The Motor City" since the SHTF there in the mid '80's

If he does bite someone most state laws prescribe a 10 day observation period at the owners expense at the certified shelter/kennel of their choice. The owner will also be cited for allowing a vicious dog to roam at large in a bite situation. I have two dogs and love them. The pit bull is a sweet dog but afraid and unpredictable until he gets to know you. The lab is allowed to go out from time to time. He's as gentle as they come.

Is the oar still useable?
I kid, I'm glad you and the wife are ok.
If anything was attacking my wife, I would be onit. A bear, a dog, anything.
Lesson learned, video system saves huge headache.

I'd dig a hole in the front yard and put a wooden cross on it with the name of the neighbors dog on it. When the neighbor comes over to complain, I'd whack her on the head with the oar to get her attention. Not really, but I can't say what I would really do. Sorry for your inconvenience and do not hesitate to kill that dog if it is too aggressive.
I love dogs but I don't blame you for defending yourself.Its not the dogs fault it was not trained well.some people should not have pets.
TOUGH TIMES DONT LAST,TOUGH PEOPLE DO.
my little brother was mauled pretty bad by a pitbull when we were at the park when we were little. had a couple of surgeries to fix him up right. its not the dogs, its the owner. just like bad assed little kids. its not so much them, its their parents fault.
sorry you were put in a position to hurt an animal because of the owner. she could use an oar to the head too for putting you and her pup in that position.
