Dog’s owner ‘heartbroken’ after utility worker attacked

HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) – A vicious dog attack sent a utility worker to the hospital Wednesday.

The female worker was in the backyard of a home on Sebring Drive in Huber Heights when the attack happened.

The dog’s owner tells us utility workers normally knock or let her know if they’ll be working in her backyard.

She says that didn’t happen this time and when her daughter let the pit bull outside, it attacked.

The USIC worker suffered deep gashes and cuts on her legs and lower body.

When officers arrived, they fired two shots at the pit bull. They missed, but it scared him enough to go back inside.

Green has had the pit bull since it was a puppy, and she says despite the stereotype– he isn’t a vicious animal.

“As much as it breaks my heart, I have had the dog since he was six weeks old, and you know he’s a very spoiled dog, he sleeps in the bed with me at night. I think some times he thinks he’s my boyfriend. And, I’m just sick to my stomach that this happened,” said Angela Green, dog’s owner.

Police say Green won’t be facing any charges because the dog was in her own yard.

The dog’s owner turned the dog over to animal control. No word on what happens to the dog.
