Tennessee: Woman knocked down and her dog attacked by Pit Bull, whose owner was said to be "horrified"... but likely has no intention of putting his vicious dog down.

Poor fur baby Gracie was almost killed this morning by a pit bull on a walk with my Mom. The dog also knocked my Mom down hard in the road and she got banged up and hurt her hand.

Thank God for the 24/7 emergency vet. They were wonderful although a hefty fee of $500. Which the neighbor will hopefully reimburse.

Gracie has a really nasty gash on her back that they had to staple and horrible puncture wounds on her neck. But she's stitched up and on puppy pain pills and thankfully will be okay.

The poor guy who owns the dog was such a nice guy and was utterly horrified. Thank God he was able with another neighbor to pull the dog off Gracie or he would have killed her. He had his dog on a chain but she bolted and broke her chain and tore after Gracie.

Is this "nice guy", who was "horrified" by what his Pit Bull had done, nice enough to do the right thing and have his vicious dog put down? Doubtful.

Such a blessing it was not even worse than it was. #poorgracie

Thanks everyone for all of your heartfelt well wishes for Gracie and my Mom after the nasty pit bull Attack Sunday. Gracie totally turned the corner today Finally!!! and is vocal and wagging her tail again. She vomited blood yesterday which was so scary. We took her to vet again and now she's off her antibiotics and she is feeling so much better.

We thought my Moms hand was fractured from the dog knocking her down but it's horribly bruised but okay ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Jeeezz what a week!! It was so sad to see Gracie all battered and stapled up and obviously freaked out. Thanks again for all your kind words, so grateful ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’•

Still no word that this "nice guy" is having his mauler euthanized. Also, no mention of Animal Control being called to take a report to document the attack.
