Pit bull attacks frail, arthritic elderly dog on Osoyoos Main Street

A dog believed to be a pit bull viciously attacked a frail 16-year-old partially deaf dog with arthritis Friday evening on Main Street leaving deep wounds on the old dog’s neck.

Rick Deis, owner of the old, small mixed-breed dog named PoopyBear, said the pit bull lunged from behind taking his dog’s neck into its mouth.

“Without warning, their dog lunged past me and jumped on PoopyBear’s back, grabbed her by the neck and started to shake her.” said Deis. “I leapt on it, grabbing it by the neck and pulled it off Poopy and slammed it to the ground and held it there.”

Deis said he got scrapes on his knuckles trying to pry the pit bull’s jaws off his dog’s neck.

The pit bull, he said, was on a leash, but the leash was lying on the ground and the dog wasn’t under control.

The pit bull’s owner, he said, initially took blame herself, but denied it was her dog’s fault.

Deis said the young woman refused to provide her name when he suggested she should pay veterinary bills and she later tried to blame PoopyBear for the attack.

“After the fact when I told her that I was going to report her, she said, ‘We’ll just say that your dog instigated it,’” Deis said.
