— Two dogs whose breed has a reputation for being mean played the roles of rescuers for a woman who was being attacked
by another dog.
A red chow
was on top of Angie Pecoraro, 22, in her yard on Monday when two pit bulls jumped over a fence and fought off the chow, Nebraska
Humane Society spokeswoman Pam Wiese said.
said the chow had bitten Pecoraro several times on her hands, arms and stomach, Wiese said.
took Pecoraro to a hospital, where she was treated and released, Wiese said.
Society impounded the chow, and its owner was ticketed for not having the dog restrained and for harboring a dangerous animal.
It will be quarantined to make sure it doesn't have rabies, Wiese said.
