She said the neighborhood terror, named Zeus, gave her seven puncture wounds and broke her hand.
Neighbors fear the PIT BULL MASTIFF MIX will get out again.
"I believe that would probably be the most aggressive dog in this neighborhood,” said Joanna Martinez.
Martinez said the same dog has lunged at her.
"I have a small dog. It's probably as big as a Chihuahua and in all reality, they have some dogs next door that are very, very aggressive,” she said.
Zeus was quarantined after the attack, but returned home Friday.
Doug Brightwell, Director of Pinellas County Animal Services said, "The extent of the injuries caused were not to the point where we felt like it was absolutely necessary to keep him impounded during the investigative process."
According to records, the owner has had nine previous animal cases regarding other dogs.
Two of those were also animal bites and one was an animal cruelty incident.
A dangerous dog investigation is currently underway.
Officials are also looking into the owner’s past.
"The owner has to have been found guilty on three different incidents within the past two years before we can evaluate them to be an irresponsible owner here in the county,” said Brightwell.
No one answered the owner’s door Monday for a comment.
Neighbors are not too happy knowing the owner may be able to keep the dog.
"I think that if that dog is that aggressive, it shouldn't be in this neighborhood. There's too many children,” said Martinez.
