My husband,myself and my dog have been attacked and bitten by the neighbors pitbull. I was taken to hospital after bite on my arm, in my garage,while attacking my small 10lb.dog. He was running loose,with no collar,,,as did ALL of them,prior to putting up ridiculous 4 ft.iron fence.When all boys home, can be 6 dogs in all. ;4 pits,1 hunting dog,and poodle.Called animal control and was dog was allowed to stay home for quarantine,,since neighbor,a lawyer got his vet to call county and get dispensation,,since dog is anxious when confined...
On next atttack, same dog came behind open fence door and knocked down my husband and almost killed my dog,,in our driveway. Vet bills over $2000 so far,,and husband must see more doctors for contiueing problems.Called animal control AGAIN,,and took dog in to facitlty for 10 days. Then, LET HIM LOOSE, not even declaring a DANGEROUS DOG,,or even following state stautes re this. Even after our affadavits,,and past history with same dog.
Dog is now back at home,behind same puny fence and nothing has been done. Even had 4 neighbors call,with past dog attack complaints,but animal control said ,,,not right after the attack and would not even take statements. Also, said that case has been closed.
So hired an attorney and sueing neighbor and animal control.
But now live in fear for our lives,,must arm ourselves to go outside.
No way to have to live..and animal control did NOT protect either the people or dog that were attacked.
Be warned,,,no help at all.
