Space suit durability?

If a large dog bites an astronaut dressed in a space suit in the leg, would the space suit rip or would it be too sturdy to rip?

Thanks!

    Its fairly tough material. The dust on the moon is unlike anything on earth, and can easily erode normal materials. I believe the stuff they use is comparable to kevlar

    If the astronaut had a Kaepernick jersey on over the spacesuit, the spacesuit will likely rip.

    Depends... is it just a nip to scare the astronaut away, or is he going to latch on and gnaw on his leg for a while?  If he has time, he could seriously damage the suit. 

    And, this is why NASA never has a 'bring your pet to work' day...
