Anyone who uses a dog to fight their battles is exactly the same as those that use guns and knives - a coward! If you want to prove you're hard mate, do some proper fighting and see how long you last. Did anyone see pictures of this lad? It's quite funny. Maybe you wouldn't need a dog that's tougher than you are if you weren't such a weedy looking little fella!
