Canandaigua,N.Y.—For Cynthia Devaney,it was a routine walk around her daughter’s neighborhood. Devaney babysits her grandson three days out of the week and often takes him and the family dog,Jordon out for walks.
Devaney was pushing the stroller along Canandaigua-Farmington Townline Road in front of the Stablegate neighborhood Monday afternoon. That’s when she saw two pit bulls a few hundred feet away. They were dragging their owner and running towards Devaney.
The pit bulls then jumped on Jordon –a 10-year-old golden retriever. Jordon’s leash was attached to the stroller and it was knocked over during the attack. Devaney’s grandson fell out and she hurried to pick him up. Meanwhile she screamed for help. She feared for Jordon’s life.
“I was absolutely petrified,” says Devaney.“The stroller went over. They were dragging another dog. I just started yelling for help… screaming for help.”
At that moment,75-year-old Canandaigua bus driver David Bliss had just dropped off his last group of students. He was driving by the Stablegate neighborhood when he saw the attack.
“[Devaney] was screaming,” says Bliss.“These dogs were absolutely intent on killing her dog and who knows what next. They were just very,very vicious.”
Bliss jumped into the middle of the fight and pulled the dogs apart.
“I was beating on them,kicking them, and doing everything I can do to keep them distracted from what they were doing,” Bliss says.“Finally,I hit the big dog in the throat then [the pit bull] released the golden retriever.”
Bliss was bitten in the hand and had to get nine stitches at the hospital.
Devaney says she is very grateful that Bliss was brave enough to help.
“People just don't do that today,” she says.“They just keep going by and they don't stop,let alone someone on a bus. He was just so sweet. I don't think Jordon would be here if it wasn't for Mr. Bliss.”
Jordon has a bloody eye and puncture wounds on her neck. Otherwise,she will be okay. Devaney has a scraped knee. She says she’s lucky her grandson wasn’t hurt at all.
“I just hugged [Bliss] so many times,” she says.“I kept hugging him and hugging him saying ‘Thank you! Thank you!’.”
Bliss says he didn’t think twice and if he had to,he would do it again.
“She was all alone. She didn't have anybody and it was one of the situations you never would think would happen… I didn't even think about it. All I could think of was here is this lady in distress.”
According to State Police,the two pit bulls were taken into quarantine for the time being. There are no charges pending against the dogs’ owner.
Bliss says he should get his stitches out sometime next week. On Tuesday,he was back at work driving his school bus.

Time to put a ban on these ugly violent breed of dogs. They banned bath salts and herbal incense because a few people were hospitalized I'm sure more then a few people have been hospitalized from being attacked by a ugly pitbull like that poor girl a few months ago who had her face nearly bitten off and thats one people call a "family raised dog" . They banned large soda drinks in NYC, time to ban these violent dogs

I KNOW MANY WHITE PEOPLE THAT ADOPT PITT BULLS. I AM BLACK AND OWN A BEAUTIFUL ADOPTED PITT BULL THAT PROBABLY LIVES BETTER THAN SOME PEOPLE. IT'S NOT THE DOGS THAT GIVE THE DOGS A BAD NAME, IT'S PEOPLE LIKE DOG FIGHTERS AND DRUG DEALERS AND PET OWNERS WHO DON'T KNOW HOW TO TAKE CARE OF ANIMALS THAT SHOULD NOT BE PET OWNERS. THE DOGS ARE BEING STEREOTYPED BECAUSE OF BAD BEHAVIORS OF HUMANS. SMH. OUR DOG IS BEAUTIFUL, HAS SHOTS (BTW, HOW DO YOU OWN AN ANIMAL AND NOT GIVE HIM/HER SHOTS? DIDN'T YOU GET SHOTS TO KEEP YOU IMMUNIZED?), HAS A HOUSE OF HIS OWN INSIDE AND OUT. GETS THREE MEALS A DAY AND LOVES HIS OWNERS AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD FOLK. WHAT KIND OF HUMAN BEING WOULD TRAIN A DOG BY GIVING IT GUN POWDER, FIGHTING IT, AND NOT GIVING IT PROPER CARE? THE KIND THAT DON'T NEED THEM. DON'T BAN THE PITT BULLS, BAN THESE FOLKS WHO DO THESE HORRIBLE THINGS TO THE DOGS. THEY ARE WORST THAN ANY DISEASE THE DOG COULD EVER CATCH!

I don't know whay people on here think Pit Bulls are a black thing. Since when does dogs have to be identified with the race of the owners? personally, I am not a pet owner, or an animal lover. I don't mind some dogs, but to each his or her own. I will tell you one thing, if people want to make a race issue, there are a lot of white folks that take pride into taking their pets to work. Now what since does that make?
Technically since blacks work at nothing all day, all blacks also have their pets at work each day since they basically work at home. You know, the home whitey pays for.

Plus these dogs belong in the burbs and country where they have room to run and play, not wound up inside or tied on the porch step, or a 16x20 back yard. Too many risks.. too many people something's bound to happen.

Of course you're one of those retarded PitBull adoption people. I bet you have no clue about your dogs backround, no papers, no lineage proof of its ancestors. You better hope it doesnt snap one day and chew up one of your grandkids or even worse, a neighbor's kid. Then you'll get sued and lose your suburb home, cars, and have to move back into the hood whence you came from.

There were 2 separate attacks in 1 day injuring 2 children in one attack and another child in the other incident. With means 2 different dogs (pittbulls ) in two seperate attacks that goes to show its not jist one bad dog
