Waynesboro, VA - The Augusta County Sheriff’s Office issued a summons to Sheri Smith, 59, a breeder of American Staffordshire Terriers and Lakeland Terriers for having a dangerous dog. The charge is in relation to a March attack by two dogs that severely injured a pet cat on Dalhousie Road.
Smith lives on a 200-acre property on Duke Road, less than a quarter of a mile from Dalhousie Road. The owner of the 11-year-old cat said that he returned home the afternoon of March 24 and saw two dogs mauling the cat underneath a patch of pine trees. The cat was so injured it had to be euthanized.
Smith said one of the dogs, a 3-year-old male, was equipped with an electrical collar. A 7-month-old female was not wearing a collar. Smith stated she did not know how the dogs escaped her property. Both dogs are registered show dogs.

She didn't know how they got loose and she was sure they would "just lick you to death" if they did get loose. They "will" get loose and they "will" kill something when they get loose.
