  • Dog owners must control their pets

    Editor:

    My mother loves to walk Max, her Boston Terrier. Monday, April 1 while walking him, she saw some girls walking a black German Shepherd in their direction. So, as mom always does, she began to cross the street with Max as to avoid the two dogs crossing paths.

    The German Shepherd broke the leash and attacked/jumped my mom and Max  knocking my mother down onto the street. She couldn’t get up.

    Max was trying to fight the big dog off. Mom said finally the girls got the dog by the collar, pulling it off of her.
