Not to mention the poor dog might end up with long term physical issues like blindness, chemical scaring, etc. But, it "might" run away. I wouldn't bet on it with pitbulls so the hammer/machete idea is a solid back up for this excellent defense mechanism for animal attacks. Look out dog lovers/haters/sarcastic a-holes , the canine squirt sniper is on the loose.
I actually took a pretty good injury to my kneecap last year when a boxer attacked my Lab. The idiots didn't have it secured, and there was a little girl, maybe seven years old playing with it, this was out in the fields where there's only the one house separated by barbwire from the public trail. The boxer took off, came through the barbwire, the man tried to grab it, but he was too late. I yelled, "Is that dog friendly?" the lady yells back, "No!" My Lab was on the leash, but pulling, Labs are always interested in any kind of movement. They ended up going at it pretty good, fortunately the boxer was not aggressive towards me when I hooked it around the neck and my Lab is big enough to take care of herself.
I tell ya what, though, if that little girl wasn't there I would have sliced that boxer's throat with my Spyderco slicer and if the man or woman didn't like it, too bad. Separating those two dogs cost me every bit of skin right down to the bone on my kneecap, took about 2 months before it was healed up.
