Just 13 seconds after Las Vegas police received a call about a dog attack that ultimately killed an infant, a call came in for another dog attack that left one woman badly injured.

Joan Hobbs, 53, was bitten Monday by what she said was a LARGE BROWN PIT BULL  in front of her neighbor’s mobile home in the northeast valley. 

She said she was about a foot away from the fence when the dog jumped up and bit her face. The dog was behind the fence the entire time, she said.  “I couldn’t believe it,” she said.

“When I reached up, my lip was gone.” Hobbs was taken to University Medical Center, and she said doctors told her she would have to undergo three surgeries. 


Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin said Animal Control picked up the dog and it is in the county’s custody at the Animal Foundation.

Animal Control picked up the PIT BULL and is now in the custody of Animal Foundation.

Quick, put a tutu on "Kiss Me" and write a cute bio. Take a photo of a baby sleeping next to "Kiss Me" to prove how safe the nanny dog is. Set up a gofundme to raise money to ship "Kiss Me" to Canada so he can live out his days in pampered bliss.

How about euthanize the damn monster?

I'm with you! I understand that any kind of dog can revert back to his instincts or get angry and bite. What people fail to understand is that every dog has certain "tendencies" due to their breed. Now when a hearding dog goes out of control and reverts to the instincts bread into them he will bark and run circles around you. A poodle or retriever will jump into the water and try to grab every bird possible, etc...A guard dog will chomp your face off. Those badass people who think it's cool to own one of these dogs are putting others at risk. Themselves as well but that's their problem for owning one of these killing machines. At the age of 4 I was bitten severely in the face by my grandmother's spoiled German shepherd as I sat at the table just eating my lunch. My face was severely injured. 5 years ago a pit bull in the area ran into my yard and I was gardening with no place to go. I had to make a brake for the house, the dog chased me through the yard. I ran for the side door porch steps but he, thank God, was distracted by my dogs barking at the porch's front screen door. It gave me time to get into the house safely. The dog was standing on its hind legs smashing at the door, kind of jumping while he tried to knock in the screen door with his front paws. My dogs saved my life. The dog could easily reach the top of the door. So glad I thought to open that main door. Not sure I'd be here. I called 911. I had severe chest pains. The animal control officer weighed less than the dog but she caught him and said he would not be returning home because this was his third offense. Actually his owners fault. My aunt took hers out back and shot it because it turned aggressive and ruined everything in her home one day while she was gone. That was in about 1972. My sisters friend from college was absolutely brilliant and promising. As soon as he graduated he went to visit his friend who owned 3 pit bulls and they just happened to be out of their enclosure. She is still not over his death and she's 56. The dogs killed him and destroyed his remains like a rag doll. These are guard dogs by nature and anyone who thinks that they are not as much risk as any other dog has no idea what they are talking about!
We don't often hear stories of people becoming disfigured or killed by hearding dogs, retrievers, dogs bread to chase vermin out of the barn and house..., you get my point.
