DDA question – calling BBC

A question raised on another forum has highlighted for me the absence within sec 3, DDA of any defence of provocation or self-defence.

I find it difficult to accept that a dog acting in defence of itself or its handler is commiting an offence.

Recently an attempted abduction of a young girl was thwarted when her SBT, which she was walking at the time, rose in her defence. Had the abductor been found and apprended could he, from spite, have launched a successful prosection against the dog/dog owner under the DDA?
