A Delray Beach woman said she was ready to take her three dogs for a walk on Thanksgiving when a neighbors’ dog came bounding down Northwest Seventh Court into her yard and grabbed her Shih Tzu, Krissy, by the neck.
"We had no chance. This dog was going to kill," Carrie Childs said.
Childs said she watched in horror as the dog shook 9-pound Krissy in its mouth and flung her to the ground.
Childs said the dog went for her Wheaton Terrier, Beau, next.
"In that time, a woman from the house came over with a Taser and had to tase the dog several times to calm it," Childs said.
Childs said when the large dog let go, it took a chunk of Beau's ear. Childs' husband took Beau to a veterinarian, but little Krissy wasn't moving.
Krissy died in her arms
"Our house is quiet now," Childs said. "She was our little sergeant."
The BULLDOG MIX that attacked the dogs was taken to animal care and control, and the bulldog's owners decided to put him down Monday morning, Capt. Dave Walesky said.
"The dog was under a dangerous dog classification because we now have two separate incidents of the dog inflicting severe injury on a domestic animal," Walesky said.
About a month ago, the bulldog bit another small-breed dog at a park, and that pet survived, Walesky said.
The bulldog's owners could not be reached for comment.
