American Bulldog Kills Lhasa Apso in Attack

The following is based on reports from the Portsmouth Police Department.

A small Lhasa Apso dog was killed Sunday night while being walked on Fox Run Road, according to Portsmouth police. 

Officers and the animal control officer were called to Fox Run Road at 9:30 p.m. for a report of a dog incident. 

A 22-lbs. Lhasa Apso, being walked by a 73-year-old Portsmouth woman, was allegedly attacked by an American bulldog, police said. 

"The dog got loose and somehow escaped from home," said Lt. Brian Peters. 

The bulldog allegedly attacked the Lhasa Apso, grabbing it by the neck and face. The bulldog then began shaking the 22-lb. dog in the process. The Lhasa Apso was killed during the attack. 

The bulldog, owned by 53-year-old Theresa Young of 5 Fox Run Road, is now quarantined at the Robert Potter League for Animals in Middletown while the incident remains under investigation.

Another black mark for the pit bull, if this had been a german shepard, it would have never been printed, Get off the pit bull already, any dog can be violant, I have the teeth marks to prove it when I was bit by a shepard doing my paper route as a kid.

German shepards used to get a bad press but now it is the pit bulls.
