NEVER go into the home of a person whose dogs you do not know while they are not home!! You are a stranger coming into their home without the presence of the owner, the dog has no clue that your daughter used to rent the house that is now it's home.
That is awful for the woman.. but you can not blame a dog for doing it's job.
"We're not sure what triggered the events Monday night that the dogs attacked this woman other than the fact that they were protecting their property from somebody that was not supposed to be in the residence,” said Mackowiak.
Very sad.. but the lady shouldn't have been there when the owners of the dogs weren't home.
When someone was in my cousins back yard in the middle of the night their german shepard went INSANE ( while inside the house ). They opened the doorto see who it was and the dog got past them and chased the person over the fence and tried to bite. That is a dog's job.. to protect.
I do feel sorry for the woman, maybe she didn't know the dogs were there, but you should always be cautious.

Quit being such a meanie weanie.
I was a proud Pit Bull owner for nearly 16 years I got her at 8 weeks old and she just past away in February just shy of her 16th birthday. She was an angel. The most gentle and caring dog that I ever had the pleasure of knowing. I was so blessed to have had her in my life.
Blame the crack cocaine drug dealers of the 80's for ruining the reputation of these dogs. Petey the little rascal dog was a Pit Bull as was the RCA dog.
"I have no clue why she was in the house, you know. She knew we had dogs and everything. It was, you know, her own stupidity pretty much. I mean, I feel bad for her, that, you know, that happened, but she should have waited 'til we got home," said Miracle.
Yeah I would feel horrible as well but WTH was this woman thinking going in there? I firmly believe had the dogs not been present we would be reading an entirely different article now. Something about property theft, breaking and entering, trespassing. You name it. Shady is not even begining to cover what this woman did. Criminal is what comes to my mind.
Again I feel bad for the woman. But she KNEW the dogs were there and still went in. And people who are against Pit bulls will use this as another example of why BSL's should become standard. It's a pitty it took such an attack to teach this woman to not go onto another persons property regardless of them owning dogs or not.
I'm sorry but who in the hell does she think she is? She never lived there so those dogs didn't know her, her daughter had lived there for only a couple weeks. THIS IS WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT IN MY POST! I am sick of people doing this to thes poor dogs. They were doing their jobs, PROTECTING WHAT IS THEIRS AND THEIRS FAMILY'S, so why critize them for this. the humane society has already deemed that since the attack occured inside the dogs own home they are of no risk to the general public. And besides, I would have bittne her myself for coming into my home. I really wish people like this would get their heads out of thei a$$es and think before doing such ignorant and retarded thing like this and trying to get yet another innocent dog PTS, just like she stated.
“I'd like to see the dogs put down, but I would like to see justice done too, cause I lost my job over it, going to be scarred for life.”
And I think she needs to be PTS for being stupid. Please quit trying to hurt these dogs for no reason at all. They did their job, protect what is theirs. GOOD DOGGIES....*throws a treat to each one for the heroic conduct* I'm so sorry to all but I am just getting extremely passionate over this issue and have been fighting against that crap of breed banning and such, it is not fair to the dogs or the good people with the good dogs. Leave them all alone and nail the idiots that don't have a right to have a dog, or like this idiot that doesn't have a brain.
I do not feel sorry for this lady at all. The scars on her face came at her own stupidity.
"quote"Taylor was attacked as she entered the home of the dogs, although she claims, she had every right to be there. Taylor still has a key to the home where ***she used to live*** ---Just because she still has the key doesn't mean she has the right to enter anyones home when they are not there. Especially without the owners knowledge. Even more when she knew there were two dogs, regardless of the breed.
If I were the owners of the two dogs I would be seeking a lawyer to see what can be done about this lady coming into my house without my consent.
