My Sammie was attacked tonight by another female dog.. As we were taking her to the car at my sons house she was on a leash but a dog off leash came charging at her, Sammie twisted around and her collar came off. They started fighting and the other larger dog penned her on the ground. Her chest was ripped open and she has two bites on her right front leg. She is at the Emergency Vet. She is stabilized and they told us that there are 2 more dogs who are more critical than she is and she will have surgery at about 3am. We will go get her in the morning. They promised us that they will call if anything changes or does not go as expected. My whole family is so upset. This same dog jumped on Sammie about two months ago and bit her close to her eye and ripped a place on her mouth. Again she was off leash and in my sons yard. The pit bull likes people but does not like other dogs. She has jumped on other dogs before. My son and dil are furious. These people who own the dog live across the street from them. They have told their neighbors that they must leash their dog when she is outside in the front. We do have a leash law. I hope they don't run into trouble with their neighbors but I am heartsick about leaving Sammie tonight.
