Coming up at 6 on @WTOC11 ...Hear from this cute little pups family after he was attacked by a Pitbull. Two hours of surgery and 75 stitches later and 10 month old Max is slowly recovering. I also talked to the owners of the dog that attacked Max.
“I feel like my hearts broken,” said Chen. “When I saw Max, my heart broke.”
Chen says their sweet pup is now traumatized for life.
“At that time I was working and my husband called me and he told me the Max problem," said Chen. "I couldn’t work anymore, I said I just want to go home and see Max.”
Chen credits the help of a mailman who happened to be in the area.
“If no mailman, I told my husband maybe he die.”
A Richmond Hill Police report identified Arazane Hilton as the owner. She was charged for animal running at large. Hilton says her dog has never acted this way.
“He’s usually the sweetest dog," Hilton said. "Like just a giant teddy bear pretty much and we’re shocked that this even happened.”
Hilton says her dog remains in a 10-day quarantine in the custody of animal control.
“I would like to speak to the other party involved and just get it over with pretty much. We’re sorry for the incident and we’re sorry that he got bit. We’re sorry that his dog got hurt," Hilton said. "But we’re also affected by the situation.”
Hilton is awaiting a court appearance. A judge will determine if her dog is dangerous.
Hilton says she does not know how her pitbull “Noob” got out of her backyard. She was home inside with her two children.
