Potato del Grande
You think he held back?
Hard to say if he held back or if he just really doesn't know how to swing like that. Possibly a bit of both. There's virtually no follow through on the swing, tho, and I doubt the guy is strong enough to swing hard while stopping the axes momentum at the bottom like that, even with the dog absorbing some force. I'd imagine it would be hard for most people to take a full on swing at a dog with intent to kill, even if its aggressive like that, so it's understandable.
