"Pahrump man bit by adopted rescue dog"
PAHRUMP - On Friday, June 23, 2017, on the 1000 block of Escuela Avenue, a 7-year-old, 100-pound, male Doberman Pinscher attacked and bit his owner multiple times in an unprovoked attack.
The owner informed Nye County Sheriff's deputies that he had adopted the dog approximately three weeks prior from an animal rescue in Las Vegas and had no issues prior to this incident.
Animal Control officers contacted the animal rescue and were informed that they were aware the dog was aggressive at the time they adopted him out but CLAIM THEY thought they had "fixed the issue".
The dog was taken into custody for a 10-day quarantine period as is standard procedure through Nye County code 8.30.160.
The male was transported to Desert View Hospital for the treatment of his injuries.
Valerie Turner Aubuchon - As sad as this is... it's not only pit bulls!
Thanks Valerie for the 'most obvious comment' award. However, you may want to remember that although all dogs can bite, it's mostly Pit Bulls that rip arms off, rip eyeballs out, and kill people.
Yes Valerie, but they are the ones that
do the most damage.
