AVON LAKE OH - 2 PIT BULLS ATTACKED AND KILLED A BELOVED SHIH TZU BEING WALKED BY ITS OWNER ON A LEASH IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD


UPDATE:  http://fox8.com/2015/08/10/avon-lake-dog-killed-by-other-dogs-while-being-walked-by-owner/

The Avon Lake Police Department was called out to Bridgeside Drive in regards to a report of three dogs fighting.
The three dogs were separated prior to police officers' arrival. Two of the dogs were PIT BULL TERRIERS, and the third dog was a Shih Tzu. The Shih Tzu's owner said he was walking his dog on Bridgeside Drive when two Pit-bull Terriers ran up to his pet and began attacking it without provocation.
He attempted to separate the dogs, but was unable to do so prior to the Shih Tzu dying from the attack.
The owner was also treated by paramedics for the injuries received as he attempted to separate the animals.
The owner of the Pit-bull Terriers was cited for two counts of animal-at-large and the Avon Lake Prosecutor is pursuing provisions under Section 955.11 of the Ohio Revised Code to designate the Pit-bull Terriers as dangerous dogs.
