Animal Care Services has picked up  FIVE DOGS  that attacked a 15-year old boy walking home from school.
The Miller High School student was on the 400 block of Old Robstown Road next to Driscoll Middle School Wednesday afternoon when the dogs attacked him. There's no word on the severity of his injuries but the boy reportedly remains hospitalized at Driscoll Children's Hospital. 
Animal Care Services Program Manager Captain Patrick McMenamy said his department is in contact with the boy's father.
Meanwhile, the dogs will be quarantined for ten days. During those ten days, they will determine whether the dogs have rabies.  The city says it's too early to say whether the owner will face charges in this case.

Meanwhile, during those ten days, it will be determined that the five dogs did not have rabies, but all of them had pit bull DNA.

I love it when rabies gets a bad rap for what pit bulls do naturally. Rabies makes regular dogs crazy, but pit bulls don't need rabies to do what they do. It's been bred into them for generations by dog fighters.
