Tell us about the attack
There were two pit bulls inside the dog park and before I entered I asked the owners if their pit bulls were friendly and they both replied “yes”. As soon as I entered the dog park, however, the small grey pit bull immediately rushed and began attacking my dog. I pulled the pit bull off mine and was bit on the arm by it. The owner then grabbed his pit bull and asked “is your dog a female”, I replied “no it’s a male.” When I was examining my dog the owner states “I’m leaving and your dog can stay and play.” The pit bull owner then did a “pit and run”, without asking if my dog or myself would be alright or showing the least concern about us.
