Any lawyers on here need help with my dog

Hey guys i had a question regarding my dog attacking my neighbors dog. Yesterday evening my dog nolan which is a pitt mix was on his walk. As we were walking up the driveway our neighbor was walking down. For whatever reason nolan started freaking out and some how got out of his harness and bites our neighbors dog. The neighbors dog was hurt and needed stiches but is still alive. I know i am on the hook for the vet bill at the very least, and i know i will have to register nolan on a dangerous dog list. My question is what can i expect next, can my neighbor sue me for everything im worth and can they put my dog down for this?

IANAL. Call your home insurer. This may be covered.

As far as putting your dog down you don't say where you are so can't help you...

Any idea on how bad the legal repercussions could be if they choose to go that route?

With large breeds, I always recommend a prong collar and a minimum 11/4 inch leather leash. I hope things work out for you.

Whenever our dogs (Bullmastiff and Pit Mix) go off property, they are in 3 point harnesses, so slipping out is next to impossible.
On whose property did this take place? If it was on your property, pay the vet bills and walk away. If it was on their property or public area, you should contact your insurance company.
My MIL's Dalmatian has hospitalized my (late) Lab mix and my wife's cousin's Chihuahua as well as attacking our Bullmastiff and Pit mix. Our dogs will never see that dog again. We all know that when one of my "evil" dogs finally injures him, animal control will blame the "evil" Pit or Bullmastiff- regardless of the Dalmatian's documented extensive history of attacking other dogs.

I won't muzzle my dogs. We keep them on 3 point harnesses and take up all the leash's slack when other dogs get near. My wife and I are both capable of physically controlling our bully breed dogs while harnessed.
Regardless of breed, the dog under the owner/handler's control is rarely found to be at fault. I'm willing to bet >95% of dog vs. dog issues involve at least one of them being off a leash or a handler not being able to secure them.

The incident occured on our shared drive way. I was going to pay his vet bill regardless but he said he wants to hold off untill he figures out what he wants to do, which i take it to mean he plans to sue me. To what extent he is able to i am unaware. Both dogs where on leashes but our dog slipped his. He has a vest type harness and when he started freaking out we lifed him up on the harness to get him in the sitting postion and i guess he got lifted just high enough to where he was able to slip out like he was taking a shirt off. And to CMOS i dont know what kind of history you had with pitbulls or why you dislike them enough to want them put down, but your last remark was not necessary nor did it bring anything to this discussion.
