Tragedy turned into excitement Thursday night for a 10-year-old Butler County boy whose puppy was put down several months ago after it was mauled by a neighbor’s pit bull.
The pit bull attack in Ross Township that left a man injured, and Chihuahua barely alive, has sparked debate about the pit bull breed. Is it simply a dangerous breed? Or do pit bulls get a bad rap?
Heavily sedated, Gidget can barely move her big brown eyes, but this Chihuahua is alive and that’s saying something. “And I have hopes and dreams that she’ll be fine, but I know she’s been through a lot,” Nancy Laspada said.
Two pit bulls have been quarantined after police say they attacked a man walking his pet Chihuahua.
The Butler County Animal Control Officer told KDKA-TV a Butler Township man will be cited next week for harboring a dangerous dog.
