I took my dog out this morning at approximately 7:15 am.
As is our usual routine, I put her on the lead and followed her outside.
Before I could get down the front steps, I heard barking followed by whining and yelping.
Heart racing, I ran down the steps and around the corner to see two dogs on top of my dog.
She was on the ground pinned. I yelled and ran towards the dogs and they let go of her and ran off towards the woods in the back of the house.
One was a pit bull that was brown with a pink collar. I didn’t notice any discernable markings. The other was a black skinny dog with a long tail. I didn’t notice a collar, but that dog had its back towards me. I have never seen these dogs in the neighborhood.
I she was stunned, shaking, whimpering.
After I carried her into the house, I called my wonderful neighbor who was here in 10 seconds flat. We examined Roxie and didn’t see any blood, but she had quite a few tender areas.
I left messages for the Veterinarian every way I could and Rox and I were on our way by 8:50am.
Luckily, nothing is broken and with the help of pain meds, she’s resting comfortably at the time of this writing.
My heart still hasn’t really calmed down…
I am grateful that she’s lying next to me on the couch.
