OMAHA NE - A PIT BULL THAT HAD BEEN IN FOSTER CARE WITH A WOMAN FOR 6 WEEKS SUDDENLY WENT PIT ON THE WOMAN'S CAIRN TERRIER AND THEN TURNED ON THE WOMAN WHEN SHE TRIED TO SAVE HER PET

An Omaha woman was viciously attacked by her foster dog before it ran away.

Ellyn Grant said she loves dogs and has been fostering them for nearly eight years. The latest dog she fostered just had puppies.

"I called her Honey Bun. That's the kind of dog she was up until this morning," Grant said.


Grant had been caring for the dog for the last six weeks but then it suddenly turned violent.
She said she found the dog attacking her cairn terrier in her front yard near 49th Avenue and Cumming street.
"They were in the corner over there when she was trying to kill," Grant said.
She said she ran outside to save her dog.
"I got between them. I kept trying to cover up my dog to protect her, trying to get the PIT BULL'S teeth off her."
But then the dog jumped on top of her and started to attack her.
"There were about half a dozen men hanging around trying to fight her off, trying to help me," Grant said. 
"I had to grab a hard rake. The guy across the street grabbed a 2 x 6 and we had some other neighbors jump over the fence. We got the pit bull away from her," Jon York said.
Eventually, Grant said the dog ran away.
"She might come back because she has puppies here but given the state she was in this morning, I just have no idea what might happen next," she said.
The Nebraska Humane Society searched for the dog in the area for hours.
"They hit her so she's probably hurt and with them hitting her, ain't no telling how far she ran," an animal control officer said.
The pit bull mix was eventually found in the Dundee Neighborhood.
The Nebraska Humane Society said the dog will be quarantined for 10 days.
NHS also took her puppies to be cared for.

The dog and her puppies need to be euthanized. There's no need for that kind of genes in our pet population.
