LOUISA COUNTY VA - SEAN FITZ, 5, GETS A NEW PROSTHETIC EAR AFTER HIS EAR WAS BITTEN OFF IN A VICIOUS PIT BULL ATTACK AT HIS GRANDMOTHER'S HOME





Youngster Sean Fitz, 5, told WQAD of the May 24, 2015, incident that took place in the bathroom at his grandmother's house: 'He was still just biting me.

'I was holding onto him like this. I was trying to hit him but he still got me.'

Sean now has a prosthetic ear, thanks to the help of Robert Barron with Custom Prosthetic Designs Inc. It's attached everyday and removed before going to sleep, according to the TV station.

The boy's father Chris Blackwell had said in a 911 call obtained by the TV station: 'The dog just bit the f*****g shit out of my son!   His f*****g ear is hanging off the side of his head.'

The dog was put down, WQAD reported.

Barron is a 'former Senior CIA Disguise Specialist,' according to the website for Custom Prosthetic Designs Inc. in Ashburn, Virginia.

He created Sean's ear and said in an interview with WTVR: 'When I was in the CIA I mastered the technique of making silicone look like skin.'

Barron recalled: 'In the agency, you know, you couldn't say anything about how you made a difference in someone's life or how you saved someone.

'But that was self-satisfaction. But now it's satisfaction in another way. You can enjoy it and you can talk about it.'

Sean had his new ear on when he was filmed by WTVR smiling and looking at himself in the mirror.
It also captured Barron asking Sean 'We friends forever?' with the two embracing.

The boy's mother Samantha Fitz told the news outlet: 'As a parent it's hard for us to explain what has happened to have to listen to your five-year-old explain to people that a dog attacked him and the words that he uses it's heartbreaking.

This was the mother who didn't want to tell it was a PIT BULL that took off her son's ear and face, worried that might hurt the image of the pit bull type dog. I feel sorry for the boy with such a mother.

I hope this case yet again gets the message to normal people: Never visit anyone who owns a pit bull type dog. Never let your child visit such a person. If it's your own mother, shun her. If it's your spouse's mother, shun her -- even if this means divorce. Do not sacrifice your child on the altar of anyone's vanity, not even the vanity of a relative.
