LEXINGTON, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - A Lexington woman says her small dog was viciously attacked by two pitbulls after they escaped their home.
The woman tells FOX 46 that the Chihuahua/weenie mix, named Carmelo, had to get 15 stitches following the attack. He is also on antibiotics to prevent an infection.
She says the two dogs got loose from a neighbors house while her children were visiting their grandparents house.
The dogs allegedly went to the porch of the home and attacked Carmelo.
"He can’t run and is very depressed," she told FOX 46.
She posted video of Carmelo's injuries to social media, expressing her anger and upset that the pitbulls got loose.
The woman did not give any information on what may have happened to the pitbulls. We're wishing Carmelo a speedy recovery!
