Tough call. Some dogs can be "backed down" by an aggressive approach (yelling "go home!" and walking into the dog). That would work if the dog is unsure of himself. A better idea would probably be to stand still and try to diffuse the situation by not challenging the dog. Most likely he will just sniff and eventually lose interest. If the dog actually has a grip on you, the best bet would be to keep on your feet and try to choke him with his collar. (Provided he is wearing a collar.) People tend to beat, kick, punch these dogs, and that generally doesn't work. They were bred to tolerate pain to a large extent. But they can only go so long without air. RUN
