Sheryl Watson was walking her 4-year-old Yorkshire, Buddy, when a neighbor's pit bull attacked her dog at her apartment complex.
"That dog just came after him with a vengeance and just would not let him go." she said.Buddy's stomach and intestines were ruptured in the attack and he suffered numerous puncture wounds to his body. Veterinarians were forced to euthanize him just a few days after the attack.
It is reported that the same pit bull previously attacked a man and another neighborhood dog. It is unclear to us why this dog was not euthanized after the first two attacks.

It is unclear to me too! All states should have the same laws about dogs.
There is a pit bull 2 blocks from us that gets out of her fence when people walking dogs go by. Last week was the second time she came after our dog on a walk. I kicked her & the owner was able to get her but acted like it was our fault for walking on our street. We weren't even on his side street when his dog raced across 2 backyards to get to us! Those teeth snapping at our dog's rear. I'll never forget that sound!!! None of us were hurt that day but I haven't walked our lab since. I hear those teeth & jaws in my sleep.
I was told by authorities to call next time so they could see the pit out of it's fence & fine the owner!!! FINE THE OWNER??? Will that protect the neighborhood kids & their pets??? And who can make a call while their dog or they are being attacked?
We got pepper spray but I have doubts that it will do any good with this dog. This dog is aggressive & the owner is in denial. The dog appears to have had puppies fairly recently too.
For some ODD reason, humans & their non-violent pets are not being protected by law! The dangerous dogs & their owners are! Someone please tell me why?
