A 4-year-old girl mauled by a dog Thursday in Melbourne was initially thought to have died but was airlifted to Orlando for treatment.
The girl was injured in the attack on Rolling Rock Drive in Eau Gallie Estates mobile home park shortly after 1 p.m. She was being watched by a neighbor while her father was at work.
The neighbor has four dogs. The sheriff's office said a MIXED-BREED DOG attack the child. The neighbor was able to get between the girl and the dog.
“The dog went ahead and grabbed her by the boot and the grandmother (babysitter) said ‘no, Max’, that’s the dog, ‘don’t do that, no, no’, and the little girl started screaming and kicking the dog,” said Tracie Barrett, a neighbor. "The grandmother grabs the little girl, throws herself on top of the child to protect the child."
When officers arrived to the home, they initially thought she had died, but she regained consciousness. She has lacerations and bites on her arms and legs. The owner also suffered injuries, but was treated at the home.
She was airlifted to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando for treatment and is expected to be okay.
Melbourne Police say they do not have any reason to believe a person is to blame for the attack, and there is no criminal investigation.
Brevard County Animal Services took three mixed-breed dogs from the home. The sheriff's office says the owner of the dogs is cooperating. Animal Services records show there have been no prior complaints about the residence or the dogs.

MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - A man had to be airlifted to the hospital after he was attacked by a dog in Miami Gardens.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded to the scene at Northwest 37th Place and 161st Street, just after 4 p.m., Wednesday.
The victim was identified by a resident as Luis Capote.
According to the resident, Capote was working on a fence for his neighbor across the street and going back and forth between homes when the 35 to 45 pound AMERICAN BULLDOG TERRIER-MIX  got loose.
“This afternoon, at around 3:44 p.m., we received a call of an animal bite,” said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Lt. Felipe Lay. “Arriving on scene, our units assessed that the patient suffered significant injuries from a dog and was treated on scene.”
7Skyforce hovered over the scene as the victim was placed on a stretcher, taken to a chopper, and transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
“The units transported the patient to St. Thomas University – right here, nearby the home – solicited the services of our air rescue and transported the patient to the main trauma center here in Miami,” said Lay. “The patient is in serious condition, and we always advise the public, if you ever come close to a dog that is a stranger to you, make sure that the animal has its distance, and don’t come close unless you know the dog.”
Authorities said the victim was alert and speaking with paramedics as he was transported.
The dog is back home. Miami-Dade Animal Services arrived to the scene and met with the owner, but left without the dog. The dog was not taken because it was with its owner in a controlled environment, according to Animal Services.

PENSACOLA FL - A FAMILY'S LAND SHARK THAT HAD BEEN RAISED WITH THEIR TODDLER CHOMPED DOWN ON HER HEAD !!!

Image may contain: 1 person

So I have been contemplating posting anything since this tragic event happens in our lives Thursday evening. It was just like any regular night Elouise and I had just gotten out of the bath and Donnie took her to get her dressed and give her some milk and I was getting ready for bed when all of a sudden I heard growling and screaming. We then spent the next 10 hours in the hospital. Just like any other night Elouise was laying with Buck drinking her milk, only this time I don’t know if she touched him funny or what but he lost control. 

These two were best friends. They’ve been inseparable since we brought Elouise home, they haven’t left each other’s sides. They’ve grown up together. I’m sharing this because I want those who think there’s no way this could happen, to see what happened to someone who thought the exact same thing. I was wrong. I totally trusted him, and he had never done anything for me to think otherwise. I was the person that thought this would never happen to me. There is no way because he loves me and he loves us and was always so sweet and loving to those he knew. 

I know some will read this and feel bad and sorry for us and still think that there is no way this could happen to you. Well after the roller coaster experience I just dealt with I am telling you unfortunately there is a possibility and there is a chance that the furbaby you love so much could do this. Anyone who knows me, knows the love I have for animals which was why this experience was even more difficult.
Our beautiful Elouise is doing better and we keep praying everyday for a quick recovery. We appreciate any prayers you could send our way. With that being said with a sad heart we put Buck to sleep yesterday and lost the furbaby of our family. For friends and family we haven’t personally contacted we are sorry but appreciate any and all prayers you could send to the Wade family. I also want to thank those that have been there through this awful experience we really appreciate it.

WESTMINSTER CO - JOHN FLANNAGAN'S BELOVED PET "BIKI" WAS FATALLY MAULED BY A PIT BULL AT THE OFF-LEASH DOG PARK - THE PIT OWNERS TOOK THEIR MEAT GRINDER AND FLED

biki 2 Dog Owners Push To Ban Pitbulls After Deadly Attack

(CBS4) – A dog owner revisited the park where his dog, Biki, was killed by a PIT BULL. He spent part of the day warning his neighbors about the potential danger.  Biki was attacked last week at the Westminster Hills off-leash dog park.

Her owners, John Flannagan and Barbie Stephens, say the pit bull’s owners took off as Flannagan tended to Biki.

“We do not want this to happen to a child. That is what is going on here. We can’t bring Biki back, but if we can preclude this from happening to a child it would have all been worth it,” said Flannagan.

He hopes the owners come forward and take responsibility. Flannagan says he’s working with the City of Westminster to try to ban pit bulls.

BROOKSVILLE, HERNANDO COUNTY FL - GEORGINA GUTIERREZ ALONG WITH HER 6-YEAR-OLD GRANDDAUGHTER WERE WALKING THEIR BELOVED SCHNORKIE "CASPIAN" ON A LEASH WHEN 2 LARGE PIT BULLS "SOMEHOW" ESCAPED A FENCE AND RIPPED THE LIFE FROM HIM - SECOND PIT BULL ATTACK THIS WEEK IN THIS AREA!!!



WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES
BROOKSVILLE – Another family suffered the traumatic loss of their beloved pet this week, after a vicious pack of PIT BULLS brutally mauled their dog to death.
“There was nothing we could do but run,” says Georgina Gutierrez, when she and her 6-year-old granddaughter were walking their 14 lb. Schnorkie, Schnauzer-Yorkie mix, on Halsey Road, Tuesday.
Georgina says her dog was on a leash as they walked past 25620 Halsey Road and that’s when two large pit bulls charged through the fence and grabbed her dog. “They grabbed ‘Caspian’ like a rag doll and started yanking him and yanking him,” a tearful Georgina said, as she recounted the horrifying event. A woman ran out of the residence, presumably the dog’s owner, and tried to stop the attack, but Georgina says they turned on her as well, causing injuries to her arms.
Ramon Gutierrez, Georgina’s husband was devastated by the news and says they only had Caspian for about 18-months before he was killed. Ramon could barely hold back the tears as he explained how much Caspian meant to the family, and how his granddaughter will be scarred from the terrifying incident.
Ramon was told that the owners received a $100 citation, but that to the best of his knowledge, the dogs were not seized by Animal Control.
Frustrated over the lack of enforcement, Ramon turned to the media to try and find answers.
We spoke with newly appointed Chairman of the Hernando Board of County Commissioners, Steve Champion who said, “What we would like to see is pet owners be responsible.” Champion wasn’t suggesting a ban on vicious dogs, or Pit Bulls specifically, but he did suggest stiffer civil and even criminal penalties for irresponsible owners who allow their vicious animals to maim or kill. Champion says he will be asking his fellow board members and the County Attorney to discuss suitable and fair options for the County.
The Sheriff’s Office has control of animal enforcement and the County controls the Impound Facility, which makes oversight and regulating difficult. Champion suggests that since the County oversees the facility, they should also manage enforcement.
On Sunday, a pack of Pit Bulls nearly killed a woman’s 26-year-old Pony and it still faces a long road to recovery, after losing an ear and suffering numerous lacerations. CLICK HERE FOR FULL STORY

LAS VEGAS NV - WHILE ON A VACATION ON NEW YEARS DAY HAELO, 8, WAS ATTACKED BY "A FAMILY PIT BULL"




This is my  8 yr old daughter Haelo. While on vacation in Vegas my daughter Haelo was bitten by a family pit bull. She was immediately rush to Sunrise Children’s Hospital to get treated. Words can’t  explain what I seen or felt at that moment and as a mother I never thought something like this could happen! Haelo had to have a 4 hour trauma surgery to her face and mouth which lead her to be sedated in PICU for 8 days straight. To see your child in this condition and not able to do anything but pray and hope everything will be ok. 

She still is swollen, bruised and swollen in her mouth. Doctors say she will recover at a percent. But mentally and physically there will be a long road ahead of us! We are still in Vegas at the hospital waiting for a release date for Haelo.

I wasn’t going to do a go fund me page, but with me out of work, medical bills will start coming in and the physical therapy sessions and maybe needing one more surgery, I decided to make a page for Haelo.  All monies donated will be directly paid towards Haelo’s medical bills and all surgery’s that has to be done! 

Mahalo, for reading and thank you for all your help
