Been there, years back I had a Malamute, one day going by the neighbors she ended up in a tussle with a shepard, doberman and yes a springer spaniel. 3 on 1 didn't seem fair. Springer spaniel was entertainment he latched onto the hair on the Mals ass and held on as they went in circles with no feet on the ground. My first mistake was a bare knuckle swing on the shepards mouth, damn that hurt. Next drop kicked the Doby in the nuts, didn't faze him but hurt my ankle, then the neighbors wife turned the hose on all of us. They still give me a bad time about fighting with the dogs. But we were the only ones that didn't need treatment. That was a great dog.
