PORT ORANGE, Fla.-
Owner angry after dog killed by pit bull October 24, 2012 06:17 PM EDT
A Port Orange woman says a pit bull killed her Pomeranian when they were out on a walk, and the pit bull wasn't even quarantined or labeled "dangerous."
Lisa Moyer said she was walking her 8-pound dog, Louie, with another small dog. Both were on leashes when a pit bull charged near the mailboxes at her apartment complex.
"I'm screaming. He's got Louie in his mouth," Moyer said.
Moyer said the pit bull left Louie on the ground, barely alive. Louie looked at Moyer, wagged his tail twice and died in her arms.
Moyer buried her 4-year-old rescue dog outside her home.
The owners of the pit bull, who live just around the corner, were cited for not having the dog on a leash and not having a city license, but the pit bull was not quarantined or surrendered. It was not labeled dangerous.
"It could have been a 2-year-old child. It could have been your grandmother," said Moyer. "When they behave that badly, they don't deserve a second chance."
Moyer said the laws are tougher if a dog attacks a person, but she thinks owners of dogs that kill should be criminally cited so that there's a real punishment.
She'd call it Louie's Law, and she's working Facebook to get support.
Moyer has already heard back from a few legislators they emailed about changes to the law, but with the election so close, that's where their focus is.

Some owners will say that pitbulls just have a bad reputation. No one can really base that on fact. After awhile people begin to believe what they hear. The first question might be is this dog a mix or a pitbull ? Good question. If they are a big problem why not just send them to obedience school?
