    I’m so sorry for the loss of your beloved pet. I hope you are okay. This is just awful.

    That is horrible. I hope the word gets out so that something can be done about dogs and owners like that. I am so sorry for the terrible loss of your dog and the injury to you.

    What a completely horrible situation. I am so very sorry for your loss. Do you know the address of the owners (so we can avoid the house)? Has the dog been euthenized?

    Breaks my heart. I hope these neglectful dog owners are prosecuted and never allowed to own a pet. Thank you for being brave, bless your pet too. This problem is growing in our neighborhood; not enough animal control officers to patrol the streets and check records on dogs and owners.

    Thank you so very much for your condolences and support–it is a great comfort to my husband and I.

    The incident happened on the northwest corner of Washington and Reinhard Ave. The address of the dog owners is 462 Reinhard Ave. We do not seek to complicate the lives of the dog owners, but we do want them to be held accountable. We all deserve a safe neighborhood, where responsible pet owners reside and we can all enjoy our animal-human connections.

    Casey: the dog has been designated as dangerous by animal control. If the owners choose to keep the dog, they must pay fines and abide by court-ordered rules for insuring the dog will not attack again. If they fail to pay fines or follow rule, then they must relinquish the dog. Franklin County Animal Control does not adopt our dogs that are designated dangerous, so the dog would be put down in that case.

    My heart goes out to the dog–she deserves owners that will respect her nature as an animal, and do their part to vaccinate, train and look after her to make sure she is not vicious.

    Hello. Very sorry for you too! Be sure to go to court though. Some years back I was bitten by a pitbull not under control of a nonchalant owner. Bites require court appearance by owner. He didn’t see me present and his attorney told a “modified” story and he was about to be let off easily until I had a chance to speak as the victim. It made a difference and I am glad I was present.
