Come on Vicki -- You don't have to beat around the bush to try not to hurt the Pitty peeps feelings!
Why is she talking about Rotties when the attack was by a Bulldog?
A young Massachusetts boy is hospitalized after he was attacked by a pet who then turned on its owner. Police say they had no choice but to put the dog down.
Family members say 38-year-old Karen O'Leary was babysitting for her neighbor's son and her own five year old daughter inside her Helen Street home in Lakeville, Massachusetts Wednesday afternoon. The family says the kids were playing with O'Leary's one-year-old American Bulldog when the dog lunged for little Lex Lizotte.
Lex's dad Kevin says the dog tore chunks of flesh from Lex's cheek and bit his neck, head, ear and hands.
