Lubbock Police say the owner of the dog that bit a three-year-old is charged with the felony attack by dog. The Lubbock County District Attorney's office received the case against 21-year-old Robert John Dunn late Friday afternoon.

According to reports, Dunn's pit bull mix bit 3-year-old Jeremiah McNeil in front of his home in the 4200 block of 37th Street last Saturday. His grandfather beat off the dog, which then attacked a Doberman and tore off its leg.

The pit bull mix remains in custody of Lubbock Animal Services pending a possible dangerous dog hearing. Meanwhile, some pit pull owners are speaking out.

"We're just defending our breed. We know it is not the dog's fault, it is the owners. It is irresponsible owners not keeping their dogs secure where they're getting out of their back yards," Eddie Gamez, Assistant Recreation Supervisor of the Maggie Trejo Supercenter said.

To dispel pit bulls' bad reputation and teach good ownership the Maggie Trejo Supercenter is hosting a pit bull awareness meeting. The meeting starts Saturday morning at 11 a.m. If you plan to attend, you are asked to leave your dog at home.
