ARNOLD PA - A FAMILY'S NANNY DOG WENT PIT TURNING ON A TEENAGER AND THEN HER MOTHER WHEN SHE TRIED TO GET THE MUTANT OFF HER DAUGHTER - HERO - A NEIGHBOR CAME TO THEIR AID AND WAS NOT AFRAID TO GET WITHIN 50 FEET OF THE MONSTER!



An Arnold man who heard screams from a nearby house on the 1900 block of Victoria Avenue pulled a PIT BULL  off a young mother and her teenage daughter Saturday shortly after 2 p.m.
The dog bit the mother and daughter multiple times on their legs, according to Arnold Police Patrolman Eric Doutt.
Their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, and both were transported by ambulance to Allegheny Valley Hospital in Harrison, according to Doutt.
It's unclear how the dog attack began, police said. Joe Lindermuth, 48, heard screams and saw two people lying on the sidewalk.

“The mom was trying to get the dog off of her daughter — they were all knotted together on the sidewalk,” he said.
Lindermuth grabbed the animal by its neck, but the dog clamped down on the teenager's leg.
“I had to give him a couple of hand chops to the throat for him to let go,” he said.
The pair ran inside their home. Lindermuth released the dog, which ran straight to the door of the home where they live.
Doutt, who was off duty, arrived at the scene. “The dog was lunging at the door, trying to bite the door knob,” he said.
“Joe Lindermuth had presence,” Doutt said. “A lot of people would have just watched.”
The conditions of the victims were not known Sunday, according to police who are still investigating.
The dog has been quarantined and will be examined, according to Doutt.

Was it their pit bull, or someone else's?

If it was theirs, how do you like your pit bull now? I certainly like his spiked collar. Makes him look like a badass! Which is, I'm sure, the look you were going for. Man, people that own pit bulls really know how to accessorize their wiggle butts. It's either a tutu or a spiked collar.

If this isn't their pit bull, I hope they sue the pants off of the owner. Something tells me though, that this is their pit bull.

Not at all fun to look at the photos, though it's important for people who don't know the danger of pit bulls. Being led out of the house like that, it's like they were attacked by a person and not a pet.

If it's their own pit bull, I certainly would have just stood by and watched. We all know that if it was their own pit bull, and it had attacked someone's child, they would not have tried to stop the attack. Later, they would have laughed and told us why the child deserved it. They would have stalked the parents and the child for objecting to a pit bull mauling.

There is nothing virtuous about risking your own life to save the life of anyone who owns or advocates for pit bull type dogs.
