A service dog and her owner were attacked by another dog in Santa Fe. Jacob was walking his dog, Buttercup, around the Santa Fe Trailer and RV Park when a Pitbull brutally attacked Buttercup. When Jacob attempted to stop the Pitbull from attacking his dog, the Pitbull bit his hand and punctured his skin in multiple areas. The owner of the service dog was extremely traumatized after the incident. Jacob told San Diego 10 News, “I’ll have that trauma the rest of my life.”
