POCATELLO ID - 2 MONSTER LOOKING MEAT GRINDERS PLAYED TUG-OF-WAR WITH A BELOVED FAMILY PET ...ANIMAL UNCONTROL SAYS THEY CAN'T TELL EXACTLY WHAT TYPE OF DOG THEY ARE ...BUT THEY ARE OF THE "BULLY BREED"...SAY WHAT???
Early this morning at 2 am, Candida Morris let her dog, Lulu, a husky and German Shepherd mix, out to go to the bathroom. This was a common occurrence, as they are woken up by the Morris' newest child that is a couple months old.
Only a few minutes later, Morris says she heard yelping, but it was coming from her driveway.
"From my bedroom window I could see two huge dogs on top of my dog," said Morris.
Morris says she then ran downstairs and started yelling at the attacking dogs, and one aggressively turned her way and she went back inside to call the police.
At that point her neighbor was outside yelling at the dogs, but they had dragged Lulu into the middle of the street.
"They looked like they were playing tug of war with her," said Morris.
ANIMAL SERVICES DIRECTOR DANIELLE GARCIA SAYS THEY CANNOT TELL EXACTLY WHAT TYPE OF DOG THESE TWO ARE, BUT THEY ARE OF THE BULLY BREED.
She recognized people will point fingers at the type of breed, but says that they should focus more on how they are treated at home.
"Dogs running at large, unfortunately yes that is a major problem. And mostly it's because people don't have their animals fixed, people don't have them secured in a yard, or people don't keep them active enough that they're not bored," said Garcia.
The incident is still being investigated so for now the dogs will remain at the animal shelter, but Morris and Garcia both made one thing very clear.
"Don't hate the breed. Don't judge a breed. Because that really doesn't have much to do with it," said Garcia.
"Domesticated animals are still animals. And they need to be trained and treated properly," said Morris.
She says when police arrived, the dogs had fled. Morris says two officers went looking for the dogs, and one officer went with her and Lulu to the animal hospital.
The dogs were eventually found, but Lulu had lost too much blood and passed away.
"She was the sweetest dog in the world," said Morris.
Pocatello Animal Services now have custody of the two dogs and their owners have been notified of the situation.
