MIRAMAR FL - 2 DOGS INVADED A HOME BY BREAKING THROUGH A WINDOW TO ATTACK THE SMALL PETS INSIDE - THEY KILLED ONE PET WHILE THE OWNER WAS ABLE TO SAVE THE OTHER !!!


       GUESS THE BREED????



Ply-wood covers a shattered glass window at David Colvill’s home. It sounds hard to believe but he said two neighborhood dogs broke through the window Monday morning.
“I could see a dog in mid-flight going straight through the window, and he punched his way right through the window with his head…he went straight into the house,” said Colvill.
Colvill said the dogs attacked his two dogs named Linus and Lucy.
“I end up in a rolling fight on the floor trying to protect them. That’s how I got bitten,” said Colvill.
Colvill was able to protect one of his dogs with his own body but the other dog, Lucy, was killed in the attack.
“I could hear that terrible noise and everything as she was being attacked by one of the other dogs,” said Colvill.
The two attacking dogs are owned by a man a few doors down.  Neighbors identified one of the dogs allegedly involved in the attack. It’s unknown where the second dog is.
 Police said both dogs were legally ordered to be in the owner’s backyard after the attack.
“I mean somebody has got to stop it. It’s ridiculous that these people can have these dogs,” said Colvill.
He said he expected the attack dogs would have been picked up by animal control but all the agency did was cite the owner.
Police said there is no fee associated with that code violation. Colville said that’s not good enough.

"WE'RE GOING TO COURT.  WE ARE MOST CERTAINLY TAKING ALL LEGAL ACTIONS.  I MEAN WE'RE GOING TO GO FOR HIM," SAID COLVILL.


METAMORA TOWNSHIP MI - 2 BULLMASTIFFS ATTACKED AND KILLED CRAIG SYTSMA, 46, WHILE HE WAS JOGGING

A Livonia man, CRAIG SYTSMA,  46, has died after being attacked by a pair of  BULLMASTIFFS  while jogging in Metamora Township on Wednesday.  Police initially responded to the scene because of gunshots fired by a neighbor who was trying to scare away the dogs attacking Sytsma.    The victim  was transported to McLaren Lapeer Regional Medical Center following the attack where he later succumbed to his injuries.  The dogs were found and taken to Lapeer County Animal Control, according to the report.

PRINEVILLE OR - A WOMAN DROPPED HER WATER BOTTLE AND THEN ASKED A 6-YEAR-OLD GIRL TO HAND IT TO HER - WHEN SHE DID THE WOMAN'S DOGS WENT PIT

Kaylee and her family were at Ochoco Reservoir when a dog attacked her. It is a day she will not forget.
"It bit me and scratched me and bit me a few more times," 6-year old Kaylee said.

She and her 8-year old brother Kaiden say the dog owner dropped a water bottle and asked Kaylee if she could hand it to her.
"When I handed it to her, the dog jumped up and attacked me," Kaylee said Tuesday.
"Kaylee got knocked down, and then the dogs jumped on her and both started fighting," Kaiden said.
Although her brother was scared, he did not run. He pulled Kaylee out from underneath the two dogs.
"I was just really scared," said Kaylee's mom, Jenni Carver-Ross.  "And in the ER, she kept saying she thought she was going to die. She was very frightened. And she kept saying she wanted to go to heaven because it hurt so bad. It's really hard to see your child like that."
Luckily, the dog, A PIT BULL,  missed arteries and nerves, so Kaylee can still move her hand.
Her parents said they were shocked when the dog was not taken into quarantine by law enforcement.
"To leave that dog to attack another child or person," Carver-Ross said.
The Crook County Sheriff's Office cited the dog owner for public nuisance.
Sgt. James Savage said because of Kaylee's injuries, their hands were tied.
"It's frustrating. We have to operate under the statute and the definition of the statute," Savage said.
According to the Oregon statutes:  http://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/609.098
A dangerous dog is qualified as a dog that "without provocation and in an aggressive manner inflicts serious physical injury on a person or kills a person".
Kaylee's injuries do not qualify as serious physical injuries, which are defined as follows:http://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/161.015
"A substantial risk of death  or impairment of the function of any bodily organs."
In other words, if the dog had severed a nerve in Kaylee's arm, the police would be able to quarantine the animal.
"It's frustrating but that's kind of the box we have to operate in. I feel for bad for the family and obviously the child," Savage said.
Kaylee and Kaiden said they are scared to go back to the Ochoco Reservoir, but even after this incident, Kaylee still loves dogs.
"Not all dogs are mean," Kaylee said.

MENASHA WI - A LOOSE PIT BULL ATTACKED A 13-YEAR-OLD POMERANIAN "RUSTY" CAUSING INJURIES SO SEVERE HE COULD NOT BE SAVED

WBAY

Families come to Fritsch Park every single day. But Sunday afternoon, a family witnessed a dog attack so horrific, they say it gave them nightmares.

"I don't think any of them will ever forget it," says Linda Jeanty.

Jeanty and her family members were at a reunion when the party was ruined by a dog attack that happened right in front of their eyes.

"Somebody sitting here saw the  PIT BULL  coming. And just jumped up and said "Oh my god,'" explained Jeanty.

Town of Menasha police say the pit bull mix, who was not on a leash, but had a shock collar, attacked a smaller dog, a pomeranian.

"The pit bull ran up and grabbed the dog. And just had it up in the air. Shaking it, it was awful," adds Jeanty.
The pomeranian was in the care of a 7-year-old girl, who had her neighbor's dog on a chain.
When witnesses were finally able to pry the two apart, the little girl and the injured dog ran to the owner's house nearby. 

"I looked at him and his whole back was, er, fur was off. And I just fell to my knees and I said 'oh my gosh, what happened to him?'" explains Sandy Arend, owner of the pomeranian.

Rusty, their 13-year-old dog, suffered severe injuries that would have meant thousands of dollars in medical bills and months in the hospital. 
"I said we can't put him through that. I said the best thing was to put him down," says Arend.
The Arends want an apology and help from the woman, who said she was watching her son's pit bull mix, to pay for the medical care the dog did receive.
She did not want to go on camera, but said, with tears in her eyes, she wasn't able to sleep last night because of what happened, and she planned to visit the Arends later Monday to apologize.

MIDLAND , BEAVER COUNTY PA - ?? 2 LAB MIX DOGS?? THAT HAVE INVOKED FEAR IN A NEIGHBORHOOD FOR A LONG TIME JUMPED A FENCE AND WENT AFTER 3 YOUNG GIRLS


Lee Ann Duez says she has seen enough with her Two white lab mixed dogs.  She wants to get rid of them after they attacked two young girls, but she says police won’t let her do it.                           
She also said she feels terrible her dogs got out of her yard and attacked three young girls, two 10-year-olds and a 6-year-old. They were in the neighborhood to visit their grandmother.“
July Fourth, they was coming to see me and they never made it to my house,” said grandmother Lori Brown. “The dogs jumped the fence and they mauled them. They got them in the throat, the arm and the leg.”
The girls’ mother tried to fight the dogs off and was only able to rescue the girls because of passersby that stepped in. One of the 10-year-old girls was actually bitten on her arm and had several scratches from the attack. She was taken to Heritage Valley Hospital for treatment.
“They’ve been a problem in the area for God knows how long,” said Brown. “They’ve been warned about those dogs because they’re not in a fence that’s very secure.”
The dog’s owner described them as “Houdini” type dogs, implying they can get out of anything, including a fenced-in yard anytime. But the grandmother of the kids attacked says the dogs have invoked fear for a long time.
“I walk in the front now, ever since the children were attacked,” said Brown.
Midland Police charged the dog’s owner with reckless endangerment and two violations of local dog laws.

Duez says she has to keep the dogs until a preliminary hearing set for July 31.

DAYTON OH - A PIT BULL CHARGED OUT OF A BACKYARD AND ATTACKED A MAN LOOKING FOR WORK AS A TREE TRIMMER


Haller Avenue pit bull bite victim, Dayton, July 22, 2014 photo

About  6pm  this everning  a  dog identified as a PIT BULL attacked a man who was looking for work . The victim was speaking with a homeowner in the 900 block of Haller Avenue when the dog got out of the back yard and bit the man, Dayton Sgt. Mark Spiers said.

The man said he's a tree trimmer and that the dog bit him on his wrist and thumb.  He didn't require a trip to a hospital, but his wounds did require medical treatment at the scene, Spiers said.

Police cited the owner on misdemeanor charges of having an unlicensed dog and failure to control. The owner also will be liable for the victim's medical bills, the sergeant said.

Spiers said as far as police know, they have not had any past incidents involving the dog at the Haller Avenue address.
The owner has been instructed to keep the dog in the home for 10 days as part of the quarantine order, Spiers said.

Spiers said that while he's no dog breeder and no expert on pit bulls, "I JUST KNOW THAT THEY APPEAR TO BE MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN OTHER DOGS."



MIAMI FL - A LOOSE PIT BULL CAME OUT OF NOWHERE TO ATTACK A BADGED POLICE HORSE "SARA" ON PATROL WITH HER PARTNER - THE OFFICER SHOT IT DEAD

According to witnesses a Miami Police officer shot and killed an AMERICAN BULLDOG MIX after the dog attacked the officer's police horse at Domino Park, near Southwest Eighth Street and 15th Avenue in Little Havana, Tuesday.
Witnesses said the dog "CAME OUT OF NOWHERE,"  darted across the street and began biting and scratching the horse. The officer, who was standing next to the horse, attempted to shoo the dog away, but when the dog did not go away, the officer fired two shots.
"I was in the Domino Park playing domino, and I saw a dog attacking a police horse," said Jose Artes, who witnessed the incident. "He started jumping, and he got really startled, and the policeman had to shoot the dog."
Police said the officer was doing his regular patrol with his horse, Sara.
Miami Police spokesperson Kenia Reyes said, "He tried to avoid by moving the horse from the dog, but the dog followed him and began biting him."
"The policeman had to shoot the dog," said Artes. "I heard two very loud shots."
 Police said, they take these matters very seriously since the animals are also part of their police force and even wear a badge around their necks.
The dog's body was taken away by animal services, and the horse was taken to the Miami Beach Police stable to get treatment.

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY FL - JANUARY 25, 2007 - 4 PIT BULLS ATTACKED A 9-YEAR-OLD BOY AS HE WALKED HOME - HERO - A WOMAN STOPPED HER CAR TO HELP HIM AND SHE WAS ALSO ATTACKED

Four  PIT BULLS  attacked a 9-year-old boy as he walked home Tuesday night in Hillsborough County.
The dogs somehow escaped their yard and went after Dontae Vincent.
Vincent fought off the dogs as they bit him and he started running. He managed to run a full block before a woman riding in a car spotted what was happening and jumped into help.
"The car was still moving, but I jumped out of the car. I could hear him screaming. He was terrorized by the dogs. I has to punch the dogs to get them to stop," said Angel Perez.
The woman also needed 20 stiches after the dogs turned on her.
The pit bulls will likely be put to sleep.
