Max, Leah, Ruby, Helen, her son's pit bulls that had always been friendly to her, ran out to greet her. She started rubbing their chests and scratching their ears when suddenly they turned from man's best friend into Karin's worst nightmare.
"Oh my god, they've killed Karin!" thought her brother-in-law, Daniel, who was the first one to get to her. The scene was so bloody that they thought the dogs had just torn an animal apart.
Karin had been mauled to within an inch of her life. Her right leg was mangled beyond recognition, exposing bone and torn flesh. Her blood had mixed with the mud on the ground in one of the most vicious dog attacks in recent history.
New York City-based Page Publishing, Karin Carter's poignant tale is a soul searing recounting of a life-changing event and one woman's triumphant recovery.

MY ORIGINAL POST TYPED UP AND PUBLISHED ON THE DAY MY HUSBAND AND I RECEIVED THE PHONE CALL FROM OUR LAWYER THAT THE CIRCUIT COURT JUDGE OF OUR COUNTY HAD RULED IN OUR FAVOR AND THE PUT BULLS NEXT DOOR MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE NEIGHBOR'S PROPERTY - DECEMBER 22, 2011 -
A Clay County woman is fighting for her life after a vicious pit bull attack.
Investigators said the six dogs that mauled 61-year-old Karin Carter were owned by her son, Derek Carter. Karin Carter was attacked Sunday afternoon in the 6000 block of Old Carter Road in Maxville.
Deputies said Carter was attacked while riding on a golf cart between her property and her son's.
"We were concerned at the time that she was going to die," said Lt. Russ Burke, of the Clay County Sheriff's Office. "She has severe injuries to one of her legs and she might still lose that leg."
Deputies said neighbors ran over to help, and one person shot one of the dogs to get it off of Carter.
"Heard her crying for help and saved her life when they pulled the dogs off of her," Burke said.
All six of the pit bills were taken to Clay County Animal Care and Control. Their future is uncertain, except that they will remain there until the investigation is complete.
Burke said the family was in the middle of building a new pen to keep the dogs in but hadn't yet finished it when Carter was attacked.
"Must be 6-7 feet high, but the dogs were getting out and roaming freely at the time," Burke said.
