highland lakes golf and country club area is quiet, beautiful and usually safe,
on march 24/09 while doing my lawn work, i hear cries from my 6 pound yorkie, misty, iwho was leashed in the garage , sun bathing.
i rush to her cries, stunned to see 2 pitbulls grappling at her , in the corner of our garage,
one white, no collar, one tan no collar, how could this happen?
very easily, irresponsible owners who do not spike and chain pitbulls.
roaming pitbulls are against fl. law.
at this time, i took the chance of loosing my life to save this famous yorkie,
i reached down between the 2 pitbulls, grabbed her wide collar and pulled her from their attack,
these 2 dogs jumped me, finally an unexpected arrival, the police deputy, and the owner who drove an unmarked white old van.
the dogs ceased.
the deputy asked, no one injured?
this was such a traumatic experience, im hoping some one will read this and act.
as for neighbors they stood and watched.
we were unscathed physically but mentally devastated.
we thought we were safe.
