LOOKS LIKE PITS TO ME!
A little pooch named Foxy has brought joy into the lives of Angel Rivera and his family. Just days ago, they could have lost Foxy. They said a normal Saturday afternoon turned into a living nightmare.
Disturbing surveillance video shows their 9-year-old Pomeranian being attacked by TWO DOGS, and Rivera said at least one of them was not wearing a leash.
"These two dogs came from nowhere, and my wife is screaming," said Rivera. "I grab him. I start fighting with the dog."
Rivera and some family members wrangled with the dogs until Foxy was free, but the damage was done. Foxy needed emergency surgery to repair his liver.
"If they don't do the surgery, probably, maybe he dies," said Rivera.
Foxy is in pain, but on the mend. In the middle of an interview with 69 News, kids from down the block gave Foxy some treats and a get-well card.
Rivera said he hopes dog owners remember to keep an eye on their dogs at all times. He hopes not another dog has to live through something like this.
"They have to have a leash or something," said Rivera. "They have to train it."
