Two pit bulls rescue woman from red chow

OMAHA, Neb. - Two dogs whose breed has a reputation for being mean played the roles of rescuers for a woman who was being attacked by another dog.

A red chow was on top of Angie Pecoraro, 22, in her yard on Monday when two pit bulls jumped over a fence and fought off the chow, Nebraska Humane Society spokeswoman Pam Wiese said.

Witnesses said the chow had bitten Pecoraro several times on her hands, arms and stomach, Wiese said.

An ambulance took Pecoraro to a hospital, where she was treated and released, Wiese said.

The Humane Society impounded the chow, and its owner was ticketed for not having the dog restrained and for harboring a dangerous animal. It will be quarantined to make sure it doesn't have rabies, Wiese said.

I used to read Anne Landers before she died (it just doesn't have the spirit it used to anymore). People used to write to her all the time about their kids being mauled by chows. Apparently, some chows and kids don't get along after a while and the kids get their faces ripped off.

Yey Hero Pitties!! :)

I haven't been misinformed. I didn't say all. I said some and I said people wrote to Anne Landers about it, not "I believe that Chows eat kids." Your link said it too: In all honesty, some Chows do have temperament problems.
