GREENVILLE NC - A WOMAN WAS IN HER YARD WITH HER PUPPY "KONA" WHO IS TRAINING TO BE HER SERVICE DOG WHEN A PIT BULL ATTACKED HIM
(WITN) - A Greenville woman says her 7-month-old puppy was attacked by three dogs Wednesday afternoon and now she wants your help in finding the two good Samaritans who helped save her dog so that she can thank them.
The dog's owner, Jacqueline Patrick-Rueff, says A PIT BULL AND TWO OTHER DOGS attacked her dog, Kona, while they were in the yard. Her next-door neighbor, a nearby UPS driver, and a man named Mike ran to her house and helped get the pit bull off of Kona as it was biting Kona's neck.
Kona suffered injuries to his neck and hind legs, but is expected to be okay, something Patrick-Rueff says wouldn't have happened if it weren't for the UPS driver and Mike.
"If these people had not stopped and, in my opinion, risked their lives, the pit bull would have killed my dog and gone after me," she says.
Kona is training to be Patrick-Rueff's service dog, so she says she is especially grateful for the two men's help.
She says the man named Mike left his wife and child at the Good Harvest Bread Company and sprinted across Evans St. to help her and Kona out in her front yard
