BIRD ROCK, SAN DIEGO CA - A BIG MUSCULAR STOCKY DOG JUMPED OUT AN OPEN DOOR OF A VAN AND ATTACKED TODD ATWOOD'S LABRADOODLE "OLIVE" - HE FOUGHT THE MUTANT AND GOT HIS BELOVED PET FREE WHILE GETTING BIT HIMSELF AND THEN...."LIKE A SOCIOPATH" THE NUTTER WROTE DOWN THE WRONG INFORMATION AND TOOK HIS UGLY DOG AND FLED
A man and his dog were sent to the hospital with serious bite wounds after another dog attacked them Sunday.
Todd Atwood walks his dog down a Bird Rock sidewalk every day. Just before the Super Bowl on Sunday he noticed a blue van with its doors open. Seconds later a STOCKY DOG jumped out and attacked them.
"I dove on both animals trying to separate them and as I was doing that I was eventually able to pull the attacking dog who still had my dog by the head, was able to pull her off, and rolled around and then she rebit my dog's ear,” Atwood explained.
Atwood’s sweet-natured labradoodle fell to her back in shock. Atwood thought Olive, who is eight years old, was dead at first.
His arms were scraped, and he also suffered deep puncture wounds from bites to his upper thighs.
The attacking dog's owner wrestled his dog away and threw it in his van and immediately grabbed a pen and paper to write down his information.
Todd says he figured the man was working on the remodel of the house where he was parked and took him at his word.
It wasn’t until later after going to the emergency room himself and getting Olive in for emergency surgery that he realized none of the information matched up.
"I felt powerless and vulnerable and I'm listening to him be compassionate to me and act like he cares at all about the well being and then LIKE A SOCIOPATH he writes out all this information quickly that's just nonsense,” Atwood told NBC 7.
Atwood said the neighborhood is full of families with kids and dogs.
“This situation could happen to someone else. It could be much, much worse, and that's terrifying.
The attacking dog's owner was driving a blue 1980 van.
