2 Pitbulls viciously attacked our Maltipoo and silk haired terrier on Saturday September 7th. The Owners of the Pitbulls live across the street from my childhood home where my Dad and his wife currently reside. While my Dad’s wife was letting the dogs out to go potty, she chained them up in the front yard as usual, the Pitbulls came out from their backyard and spotted our dogs. They came over to check them out and then all of sudden they were attacking our dogs, throwing them around like rag dolls. My Dad’s wife began screaming for my dad while trying to get these powerful animals off our small pets. By the time my dad got outside to see what all the noise was about, one of the pitbulls had our terrier’s head in his mouth. My dad began kicking the pitbull in the ribs in an attempt to loosen his hold on our dog’s head but to no avail. My Dad then clenched his fist and hit the pitbull on the back of the head to which the pitbull finally let go. 

They were finally able to separate the animals but while my Dad was trying to hold onto the collars of the Pitbulls, one slipped out of his collar and ran home. 911 was called and My Dad and his wife immediately rushed our dog’s to the vet for which they spent nearly 8 hours there. Our Maltipoo had a bad puncture wound in his neck. The pitbull’s tooth barely missed his jugular vein by mere millimeters. Our terrier is in much worse condition. He has puncture wounds all over his body, his skin has been gouged and ripped off and he nearly lost his eye with how close one of the teeth got from clenching down on his head. It will be a hard recovery but the vet has assured us that they will both pull through. 

When 911 was called during the attack, the owners admitted that they knew their 2 Pitbulls when mean and aggressive when they got the animals. But yet they took no extra measure to ensure their animals were secure. I am calling for these 2 animals to be put down. They have proven they are dangerous and will attack out of nowhere with no provocation. I’m also calling for the owners to be responsible for our pet’s vet bill as well as the ER bill for my Dad’s wife as she had some pretty bad scratches and puncture wound from trying to find these animals off. Please support this cause by signing the petition for I fear these animals will attack again and next time it could be a child.
