Neighbor's Pit Bull

12-yo Louie (8 lbs) was attacked by a neighbor’s pit bull at an outdoor party in our neighborhood. Both dogs were leashed. The pit bull's owner did nothing. Three grown men were beating the pit bull and it wouldn’t release and she just stood there watching her dog kill my angel. The pit owner was given a citation after we demanded a proper investigation, but she's fighting it in court. She's playing the victim and won't accept responsibility.

My baby was viciously attacked by a neighbor’s Pit Bull dog. The neighbor knew their dog was aggressive and took the dog out without any precautions and so my baby and another neighbor’s dog got attacked!! He is terrified and my husband and I are traumatized. We’ve only noticed a big bite bruise on his left hip; the vet recommended icing it. Pray that my baby is only bruised. Getting him closely looked at tomorrow morning.

Tommy was having his morning walk and was savagely attacked and shaken by a large Lab-Staffie cross. He was rushed to the emergency vet. He underwent a 3 hour long surgery to save his life. He has extensive damage, lost a testicle, internal bleeding, might loose a kidney. It has been devastating to us and we're still in shock.

My husband was walking Snickers on a leash when a loose pit bull ran from my neighbor's porch, grabbing Snickers in his mouth and ripping his stomach wide open. His intestines were hanging out. My husband wrapped him in a towel and rushed him to the hospital. One month, 3 surgeries, and $18,000 later, Snickers was able to return home to us. The vet said it was a miracle he lived. What makes me angry is my neighbor never had to pay a penny for our pain and suffering.

I was walking my 6 lb Chorkie when I saw my neighbor and his pit. I crossed the street to avoid them. The neighbor proceeded to follow me, insisting his pitbull was friendly. Before I could pick up my dog, the two dogs' leashes tangled and the pit became aggressive. I dropped my dog’s leash so he could run, but my neighbor simultaneously let go of his leash... It was like a horror movie watching the pit chase down my little guy who was running scared for his life... (See image for full…

My mom was walking all three of our dogs ON THEIR LEASHES when a much larger and aggressive pit bull escaped its gate and, unprovoked, blindsided my mom and immediately attacked and killed our beloved Goshka on the spot in a matter of seconds. It knocked my mom to the ground and then went for Swaggy and bit him on the rear. My mom kicked the pit as she pulled Swaggy away, and was able to pull Minni (our third yorkie) away as well.

Riley was attacked by a neighbor’s recently adopted pit bull, who escaped his fence, ran half a block, then jumped 7.5’ to snatch Riley out of his dad’s hands, crushing the tiny Yorkie in his teeth and running away with him. Dad gave chase. The pit bull shook Riley, ripping open his intestines. The brutal attack went on far too long, as both dogs’ owners desperately tried to stop the attack. In the end, Riley was horribly injured and had to be sent over the rainbow bridge. 🌈

The larger dog would not let loose even after Furioni beat on its head repeatedly with his fist. Another neighbor beat on the pit bull with a stick. The dog weighs 40 to 50 pounds. The pit bull’s owner was finally able to get the dog off the Yorkie, but it was too late. Jack was dead.

Riley lost his life after a distracted neighbor didn’t control her dog (a pit mix) and that dog rushed us in the street. Three adults couldn't stop the attack. Hitting the pit with a shovel had no effect and Riley was killed. Riley was a happy, well-trained therapy dog who served at hospitals and read with children at schools. He was also involved in agility classes and competitions for seven years. He had a large following online, with many fans who loved him very much. He is dearly missed.

Thank goodness he wasn't hurt worse.

My two Yorkies were attacked by two pit bulls. They bit Harley several times, but Gunnie was badly mauled. I was trying to drive them away - I am amazed they didn't tear my face off, but I tried to get them off my baby. Gunnie nearly died. He suffered 32 punctures, two huge lacerations that required surgery, and a broken rib. He ultimately survived.

Lola was attacked April 27, 2019 by a pitbull. She was on a leash right in front of my apartment. Out of nowhere a130 lb pit grabbed her. He didn't have collar tags or anything. The owners of the dog said he had an accident. Killing my Lola was not an accident. Now they are trying to disappear before our court date so they dont have to show up. I miss my baby, my best friend.  She was my world. 3 1/2 years wasn’t long enough for her. She should still be here with me. 😭😭

A big pit bull attacked 5 lb Mesha in my grandson’s yard. It happened so fast and I was standing there. I ran to her aid. That pit bull was a handful. I snatched him off her twice and the third time I hit him in the head with a screw gun. It tramatized her so badly I thought she was dying. We finally got her calmed down. I'm taking her to the vet now. I pulled both my shoulders out rescuing her. Xrays showed no bones broken but has some swelling in her abdomen.

Suzie is a 10yo much loved and cherished Yorkie. She goes everywhere with her Momma. Today she was savagely attacked by a Staffie whilst walking with her mom through Wrexham Town Centre. She needs an operation to fix her jawbone, which has been ripped and broken in two. She is currently at the vet. She's stable, but needs to go to a specialist for an emergency operation. The cost of this operation and aftercare is expected to run into the thousands and I need help to cover the costs.

I was walking Pebbles one night, when a big Staffie/pit bull jumped out of a car window and literally got most of my dog in its mouth. I dropped to the floor and jammed my arm in its mouth to stop it biting down on her. My partner dragged the pit backwards by the legs. Luckily, Pebbles wasn't injured, but the squealing from my baby was a horrifying noise I never want to hear again. After our dogs were separated, I began screaming in the pit owner's face. My family members had to pull me…

"This dog was vicious and relentless. We were eventually able to get Vargas from the grips of the bull dog, and in the process, my partner, who was ... 6 weeks post-surgical from a spine operation, was knocked down by the pit bull, and I had part of my right middle finger bitten off." Six mo old Vargas didn't survive the vicious attack and Stephen's finger reattachment didn't take. They fought hard for justice and better laws, but nothing was done.

A beautiful, intelligent, and intuitive Yorkie was killed by a large female pit bull that wandered into Stephanie Moody's gated senior community and attacked the little dog without warning. Prince was a service dog, given to Ms. Moody as a gift from her son after they found him lost on the side of the road nine years ago. He was her best friend, companion, and a family member. He was killed by a pit bull on 7/25/2016. R.I.P. Prince. ❤️

This is my Louie. No one wanted him and he went from home to home. I was his last home. He was very smart! Sadly, two years ago, a pitbull attacked him, breaking his neck, so I had to put him down. (Click pic for more.)

This pit bull attacked and killed a small Yorkie while it was at large. Phoenix's animal control thought it was a good idea to adopt him back out to the public so more Yorkies and maybe even children can be killed. (They also tried to adopt out other pit bulls that had killed dogs.) Fortunately for Yorkies, pets, and children of Phoenix, the pit bull had to be euthanized because no one wanted to adopt it.

This tiny Yorkie named "Killer" suffered numerous bites and broken bones in a horrific pit bull attack. He had over 82 stitches and 3 drainage tubes and the vet held him hostage until Killer's owner could pay the $1400 bill. Luckily, with the help of donations, Killer is recovering at home now but it will be rough going for a while.  Hang in there, Lil Killer!

“The dog came out of nowhere and went for Maddy. My wife jumped down to try to shield her and I managed to drag the dog off by the collar. The owner then came across but that was when the dog went back for Maisy. Six-year-old Maisy was then bitten by the bull terrier. The dog took a large chunk out of her neck and severed an artery or vein – there was blood everywhere." (May 2017, UK)

Margaret Shore, 74 stated: “It was just awful. He was torn to pieces in my arms and there was nothing I could do to stop it.” She did try to stop the attack and as a result she suffered a bite to her finger and bruising after she was knocked to the ground by the Staffie.  “I’m absolutely traumatized by the whole thing and even having nightmares about what happened,” she added.  “That dog just wanted to kill and as soon as it saw us it just went for Jimmy’s throat.” (July 2016, Moordown, UK)

A PENSIONER has been left traumatised after watching a small dog get “torn apart” during a savage attack while on a walk to the park.

A Staffie being walked by a woman attacked Rosie, one of two Yorkies tied up outside a shop. "The woman was walking up the street when the Staffie went at the tiny little dog. My husband tried to get in the middle of them and he managed to get the other dog away after reaching down and getting its collar undone. I took the dog around to Temple End Vets and it was in a really bad way. I had to stop to give it mouth-to-mouth. She was alive when I got her there but she didn't make it."

Pensioner, Patricia Hathway, watched in horror as two Staffies burst through her gate into her backyard, grabbed hold of three-year-old Yorkie, Tommy, and “shook him like a rag doll.” "The two chaps that had the dog were swearing at me, telling me I should have locked the door."  Mrs Hathway says she called after the Staffies’ owners to ask for their details, but they ignored her and walked away.  Tommy suffered serious injuries and could not be saved. Plymouth, UK.

Raquel Miravalles Quesada: "The dog attacked Dylan without any warning. He jumped on my dog - a 4kg Yorkshire Terrier - who just laid down and showed him his submission.  "It didn't care. He bit him one time, shaking Dylan in the air for a couple of minutes.

Wheelchair-bound Stuart Cope could only watch in horror as the Staffie came straight for his Yorkie. "He was on a lead, but he was so strong he snapped it, and the owner was helpless to stop him charging over. It was over in seconds. I sat there and watched in horror.

Miley Cyrus's Morkie was attacked and killed with a single bite to the neck by Ziggy, her "English Bulldog", Ziggy (see photo). Pit bulls were created by combining the old style bulldogge with terriers. The bulldog had the powerful bite and the terriers had the ferocity and quickness. Miley's bulldog is obviously not a modern-day round-looking English bulldog. It appears to be a bulldog/pit or bulldog/boxer mix, the result being similar to a pitbull.

My sister's pit is usually sweet and patient with Jamie. But yesterday, the pit bull fell on Jamie, and when Jamie yelped, he bit him! I rushed Jamie to the vet. They said we were lucky it wasn't too bad. He had some facial bruising and dislodged a tooth. The vet said Jamie's yelp triggered an uncontrollable attacking instinct in the pit bull's brain, and it could happen again. I love my sis's dog, but I don't want him around Jamie now. This was way too scary! Thank God my baby is okay!

I took my parent's Yorkie for a walk and he was attacked & killed by an off-leash pit bull. It is hands-down the worst thing I have ever experienced firsthand and I still cannot talk or think about it without breaking down and crying. My boys usually insist they accompany Barney and I on our walks, and I thank God every day that they didn't insist on coming this one time (I'm having a hard enough time processing/dealing with it and I can't imagine the trauma it would have caused them).

Hunny was very close to being mauled by a pit bull, but Peter Delayo, an MMA fighter and wrestler, noticed the impending attack & jumped in to grab the pit bull by the collar, choking him until the owner took over. Hunny got a little bite in on the pit bull's leg, but then she got tossed through the air as Peter yanked back on the pit bull's collar, pulling the dog's legs off the ground. The incident shook them up, but we're happy to announce that Hunny & Peter are physically okay.

12-yo Louie (8 lbs) was attacked by a neighbor’s pit bull at an outdoor party in our neighborhood. Both dogs were leashed. The pit bull's owner did nothing. Three grown men were beating the pit bull and it wouldn’t release and she just stood there watching her dog kill my angel. The pit owner was given a citation after we demanded a proper investigation, but she's fighting it in court. She's playing the victim and won't accept responsibility.

My baby was viciously attacked by a neighbor’s Pit Bull dog. The neighbor knew their dog was aggressive and took the dog out without any precautions and so my baby and another neighbor’s dog got attacked!! He is terrified and my husband and I are traumatized. We’ve only noticed a big bite bruise on his left hip; the vet recommended icing it. Pray that my baby is only bruised. Getting him closely looked at tomorrow morning.

My husband was walking Snickers on a leash when a loose pit bull ran from my neighbor's porch, grabbing Snickers in his mouth and ripping his stomach wide open. His intestines were hanging out. My husband wrapped him in a towel and rushed him to the hospital. One month, 3 surgeries, and $18,000 later, Snickers was able to return home to us. The vet said it was a miracle he lived. What makes me angry is my neighbor never had to pay a penny for our pain and suffering.

Riley was attacked by a neighbor’s recently adopted pit bull, who escaped his fence, ran half a block, then jumped 7.5’ to snatch Riley out of his dad’s hands, crushing the tiny Yorkie in his teeth and running away with him. Dad gave chase. The pit bull shook Riley, ripping open his intestines. The brutal attack went on far too long, as both dogs’ owners desperately tried to stop the attack. In the end, Riley was horribly injured and had to be sent over the rainbow bridge. 🌈

Riley lost his life after a distracted neighbor didn’t control her dog (a pit mix) and that dog rushed us in the street. Three adults couldn't stop the attack. Hitting the pit with a shovel had no effect and Riley was killed. Riley was a happy, well-trained therapy dog who served at hospitals and read with children at schools. He was also involved in agility classes and competitions for seven years. He had a large following online, with many fans who loved him very much. He is dearly missed.
