I view my dogs as part of the family and my attachment to and affection for them is very real.

If they were in danger I would protect them. How would depend on the situation, I guess. I would not abandon them, though.

I can almost guarantee that, over here, I'd be in the do-do if I used lethal force.

I shouldn't be, but would.
My firearms licence is first and foremost termed as a self and property defence weapon licence. The hunting and sports shooting parts are additions to that. Also, over here, legally speaking, dogs are viewed as objects and so property. I should be entitled to use force to protect them.

But, I bet it would not work out that way....

Another reason I carry pepper spray too...
When the right to effective self-defence is denied, that right to self-defence which remains is essentially symbolic.
