“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday, around 530PM, our dog was attacked by another dog inside the LeDroit dog park. The dog that attacked her was a 20 lb-ish, white, short-haired, mixed-breed with black and brown splotches. Very aggressive.

He latched on to Luna’s neck just after we entered (She’s a 13.5 lb white Maltese/Shih Tzu). The owner picked up his dog and our dog was still in his bite, dangling. After a minute or so, he finally got his dog to let go. It was dark and I was just trying to calm her down so we couldn’t tell that she had the wound until he had already left.

The owner has puffy curly black hair, younger, white male in his 30’s maybe. The owner also has a medium sized short-haired, black dog. Please let us know if you have any information to help us locate the owner. We have no reason to believe that he wouldn’t be cooperative.

He hung around to make sure we were okay but we were in shock and the bleeding hadn’t started until she started moving again.

She was admitted to the vet and stitched up immediately. She’s on meds and recovering now. The tube will be removed Saturday if all goes well.”
