Update On Dog Attack

"He was blind. He didn't stand a chance. A little Rat Terrier and two dogs like that. He didn't stand a chance," said William Cox. 

Cox is talking about his eight and a half year-old blind Rat Terrier and the dogs that attacked them. On September 30th two pit bulls brutally attacked Cox and his dog, killing the Terrier and wounding Cox.

When asked if any criminal charges should be filed against the owners?

Cox responded, "yes..."

"As of today we have just a couple of things left to do on the investigation and we should have it ready to go by tomorrow," said Director of Lubbock Animal Services, Kevin Overstreet.

"They made no effort to help us get the dogs off," Cox said about the dog owners.

During the attack Cox suffered a broken arm, puncture wounds to his other arm and a broken finger.

"They were vicious," Cox added.

The dogs, deemed dangerous, were scheduled to be put down this past Friday but Lubbock Animal Services has not been able to reach the owners.

"I postponed it because we were not able to verify that the owners of the dogs had been notified through certified mail," said Overstreet.

"Apparently he (the owner) doesn't care about my condition or his consequences," said Cox.

But Cox does believe action will be taken.

"They will be put down because the dogs has been in trouble too many times before," added Cox.
