A concerned dog owner shares this incident report:
I live on Commercial Street in the North End and my dog was attacked by a large black pitbull in Greenough Lane around 9 p.m. on Saturday July 16th.
It was completely unprovoked. The pitbull was off-leash and tackled / viciously bit into my dog’s neck as he screamed …. a heartbreaking sound I’ll never forget. It all happened so fast. The owner was a mid-30’s caucasian bald man, who grabbed his dog and fled the scene without providing any information. A travesty.
My dog had emergency stitches and anesthesia at Back Bay Vet (they’re amazing). Unfortunately, he’s quarantined from other dogs for 45 days (all summer!) because we don’t know if the other dog was vaccinated.
A police report was filed and animal control was contacted. Please all North End residents and dog lovers be alert.
