MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - A man had to be airlifted to the hospital after he was attacked by a dog in Miami Gardens.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded to the scene at Northwest 37th Place and 161st Street, just after 4 p.m., Wednesday.
The victim was identified by a resident as Luis Capote.
According to the resident, Capote was working on a fence for his neighbor across the street and going back and forth between homes when the 35 to 45 pound AMERICAN BULLDOG TERRIER-MIX  got loose.
“This afternoon, at around 3:44 p.m., we received a call of an animal bite,” said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Lt. Felipe Lay. “Arriving on scene, our units assessed that the patient suffered significant injuries from a dog and was treated on scene.”
7Skyforce hovered over the scene as the victim was placed on a stretcher, taken to a chopper, and transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
“The units transported the patient to St. Thomas University – right here, nearby the home – solicited the services of our air rescue and transported the patient to the main trauma center here in Miami,” said Lay. “The patient is in serious condition, and we always advise the public, if you ever come close to a dog that is a stranger to you, make sure that the animal has its distance, and don’t come close unless you know the dog.”
Authorities said the victim was alert and speaking with paramedics as he was transported.
The dog is back home. Miami-Dade Animal Services arrived to the scene and met with the owner, but left without the dog. The dog was not taken because it was with its owner in a controlled environment, according to Animal Services.
“She’s hurt. She has some gashes in her head,” said the dog’s owner, with blood still on his shirt.
The brother of the dog’s owner said the victim used a tool to defend himself and injured the dog. Pictures of the dog’s injuries showed blood on the animal.
The investigation remains open, and Animal Services said they may interview the victim once he is released from the hospital.

I wonder what DNA testing would say the dog is. Of course, I know that is not extremely reliable. It's amazing to me how the man got injured when the dog was just barking at him and how he managed to injure the dog when the dog was just barking at him. (Dogs normally bark from a distance and cannot bark while they are biting.) Furthermore, Jack Russell terriers are ornery but not very powerful. How dare someone call an American bulldog a pitbull. That's like comparing apples to apples. At any rate, the dog bites sound like incredibly severe ones for anything but a pitbull.

A victim attacking a pit bull first? That would be a first, lol!

That does not look like a Jack Russel Terrier Bull dog mix. That is a pit bull. DNA test kits for dogs are not that expensive, $100 or less. This is Miami Dade County, and I thought pit bulls were banned? This "Jack Russel Terrier mix" should be DNA tested, then dirt napped when they find out it's a pit bull.

Anon 1:28, I posted my comment before I saw yours. I had my dog DNA tested because she is a rescue. They told me she was a husky mix, but she looked like a border collie to me. She's black and white, and has absolutely no obvious husky traits. I thought the shelter was on crack when they said "husky mix."

Imagine my surprise when the DNA test came back that my dog is part husky, part border collie and part lab. About 1/3 of her is too mixed to be specific, but they narrowed that part down to herding and sporting.

I'd also like to mention that the company I chose can identify Stadfordshit Terriers, am bulls, and the rest with no problem.

Yes, there is such a breed as a pit bull.

Freaking useless info when it's a pit bull determined to "come close" to you. And I just love how they talk about poor pibble who has gashes on it's head. That man was trying his damnedest to get that beast to stop.

Dog DNA is bogus.
Watch this AKC Champion Staffordshire Terrier (fancy name for pit bull) results of his DNA..........you can just go to the end for the results
