Would a dog be put down?

I was walking my dog a few nights ago he was on his lead. On our way home from the walk a black lab that wasnt on its lead came towards us and my dog got really worried and protective because he was attacked by a lab when he was 2 months old. The dog then growled at him and then I saw the owner who didnt look concerned about their dog. I managed to get my dog away without any problems but I was wondering if my dog had bit the other dog could we be fined or would my dog be put down? I am in the UK

it depends on if the owner of the other dog wants to press charges.they can. but thats only if the owner wants to. and I dont think they will put him down, they might give you a warning, and if it happens again they might take him. hope this was helpful. if not, sorry. and im from the usa, so it might be different over there.
