Two dogs charged and repeatedly bit a woman and the dog she was walking in a Sept. 29 attack in the 100 block of Lakeview Estates Drive, sending the woman to the hospital.
The woman was on the way back to her home with her Maltese dog around 8 a.m. when a BLUE NOSE PIT BULL and MIXED MASTIFF-BOXER came at her and her dog, according to a Putnam County Sheriff's Office incident report.
