A NSW Ambulance spokeswoman confirmed the injuries were not life threatening.

Footage captured by 9News crews shows the man hurling abuse as he is taken away by paramedics on a stretcher.

He can be heard screaming: “Pull the f**k up, understand? Pull the f**k up!” and “Watch when I get out”.

Neighbours quickly returned fire but they were kept separated by police.

It is understood the dog which attacked the man was an American Akita.

NSW Ambulance inspector Mathew Johnston said the scene was “heightened” due to a patient being in distress.

“As you could understand that was stressful for both the family and the bystanders,” he said.

9News reports the dog - which was microchipped but not registered - was sedated by council rangers on Friday and taken to a pound.
