A CHS reader posted her account of the attack — and her brave action to stop it — to the CHS Facebook Group in hopes of learning more about the fate fo the dog that was attacked:
I was headed home from work on Friday, and walked to the bus stop on Pine and 11th (th) to head home as per usual. I saw a disabled man and his “service dog” black German Shepherd (?). They proceeded to sit under the bus stop covered place. A girl and her friend were walking by with a little Daschund and the “service” dog went crazy and attacked the daschund.
The account posted to the group describes the woman grabbing the attacking dog by the muzzle to stop the assault. The incident happened around 5:30 PM and Seattle Police and animal control were called the scene. Police transported the victim dog and owners to a nearby clinic for treatment.
