    This is half of the result of an amped up malinois puppy who is mad that you didn't produce her tug fast enough:

    [​IMG]

    The other arm is equally as scraped up, and there are bruises from earlier incidents you can't see in the pic. This is also *with* carrying a tug on my person; Aeri will ramp up and turn into a leaping, whirling dervish and the tug or toy is our chosen method of redirection as we work on minimizing the behavior itself.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Aeri and the drive that she has, and I wear the wounds with pride lol, but this type of dog is *not* for everyone!

    And OUCH! to those scratches and scrapes!

    My dogs were quite like that as pups.

    Paws? you got off easy! :p For months Sloans favorite was running behind me and biting the back of my head, yes I was standing. Backup is mostly a clutzy mouth biter but Sloan thinks the world opens up to her and her teeth are the key.

    Have fuuuuuuun lol

    I'm just happy I have a husband who's hands are so calloused that he can rough play fight with Riley and not even be bothered by it. He will also bite Riley back if he gets too out of line... seems to work :rofl1:
