I was going to post on this, but Miguel beat me to it.

I read his post and have a slightly different opinion.
Pepper spray for humans is notoriously useless on dogs, especially pitbulls.
There are plenty of videos of police spraying pitbulls with pepper spray and it doing nothing to alter their behavior.
Fighting breeds are bred to fight through pain.
I agree that shooting the dog while it is only attacking another dog might get you into legal hot water.
I still believe (disclaimer: IANAL) that a knife in the throat is the best option.
I’m trying to pull my dog out of the jaws of a pitbull?
What happens when that pitbull latches onto my hand?
A knife in the throat will effectively stop the attack while preventing my hands from being the next target for attack.
I would make the argument that it’s not just my dog I’m protecting but myself.
If I do have the draw my gun it’s probably against the owner who’s gonna be passed that I just slit his dog’s throat.
