A teacup poodle attacked by neighbor's unleashed dog injuries requiring over 100 stitches, entire back almost torn off.
He says the attack dog was a husky mix and that the poodle's owners have racked up $4,000 in veterinary bills so far. No charges have yet been filed, but the case is now under investigation by the city's animal-control department, he adds.
The mauling happened the same day the Massachusetts Appeals Court ruled the owners of dogs that attack other dogs are liabile for reasonable veterinary costs - even if that exceeds the cost of putting down the injured animal and buying another one.
