A service dog is dead, its owner, a wheelchair user who treated the dog as her child, is devastated and police are still searching for the suspect following an attack by a pit bull in the City of Poughkeepsie. 

Rosemary Cole, 60, of the City of Poughkeepsie, was inconsolable after the death of her service dog, a Chihuahua, according to her son and Town of Poughkeepsie resident David Cole. David Cole added that the dog was like "her child."  "It's like everything was ripped out of her soul," David Cole said. "That little dog was everything to her."

On Friday at 7:14 p.m., Rosemary Cole was traveling east on Main Street near Perry Street with her dog in her lap, police stated in a press release. A tall, black male was walking in the same direction with a black PIT BULL on a leash when the pit bull lunged at the Chihuahua in the woman's lap, police said.

Rosemary Cole attempted to stop the pit bull, but she was knocked over and onto the sidewalk. The pit bull owner tried and failed to pull his dog off the Chihuahua, but a witness was able to separate the two dogs, police said.  Rosemary Cole's Chihuahua was taken to a vet where it was pronounced dead, police said. 

The pit bull owner and the dog continued to walk east on Main Street accompanied by a second person following the incident, the release stated.  Anyone with information related to the incident or the pit bull owner's identity is asked to call the City of Poughkeepsie Police at 8454517577.

It's real important to have a pit bull to protect you in the hood from those vicious Chihuahuas. We all know that Chihuahuas bite more than pit bulls. This incident will be filed under, Chihuahuas bite more, instead of, pit bull kills another Chihuahua. Keeping it real in the context of nutterdom.
