I'm so sorry to read about your loss. It broke my heart when I read it.

My family experienced the same tragedy almost three years ago. I wish I had some magic words to help make your pain go away, but I know there are none. Our dogs and cats are not animals, they are members of our family.

I hope I speak for all animal lovers when I say that we send our deepest sympathy and prayers to you, your family and to your dog.

If I were you, I would call a lawyer. You have the right to seek retribution for damages and the trauma this incident has caused you and your family.

Unfortunately Chris when this happen to my family we had no legal recourse since our dog was killed in the attack. If our dog was injured then the owner would be liable for the vet bills. We couldn't even recover the cost of cremation since that was considered a choice and not a necessity since it was an animal.

Our dogs were in our backyard behind our fence & the 2 pits were loose and came over to our fence and poor Rex who was not even a year probably thought they were just going to smell each other when the pit locked down on his nose and pulled him through a 4X4 inch hole and bit his neck and tossed him like a rag doll from my neighbors account who witness the whole tragic ordeal. I am thankful my Pom Sable was okay. Pit bulls do not have a place in a neighborhood. I thank God my grandbabies where not out riding their bikes or going to the park like they usually do at that time in the morning.
