Default RIP Foxxy

On July 9, My husband was attacked by a loose pit bull. This pit ripped foxxy out of my husband's arms and killed her. Taggert got away safely.

Dog involved in attack found Friday evening | Local News - KETV Home KETV news story about us

Pit bull mix kills Chihuahua in southwest Omaha apartment complex | Crime & Courts | omaha.com Omaha World Herald story

WE rescued miss foxxy from a family that found her running stray on the Pine Ridge reservation in August 2009. She had 1 surviving pup so her lineage lives on, but not with us. WE got her in October 2009 after her pup was old enough to be on its own.

She was my first pup, and I miss her very much. Till we meet again at the 9th river baby girl <3

This is really terrible. I hope you can sue the owner, so that he realizes that what his dog does, results in consequences. Maybe if he has to pay $$ he would see that his dog is properly kept in his own yard/property.

OMG I am so very, very sorry to hear this! This is truly a horrific nightmare for all involved. I hate that people who have no business having pets, let alone a Pit Bull, are responsible for acts like this. It's not fair to the victim, and it's not fair to the Pit Bull or the entire breed. It's irresponsible people like this, who own dogs like that, who just perpetuate the reputation that condemns all dogs in the Pit Bull/Bully breed.

My prayers go out to you and your husband. I am so thankful that he wasn't hurt. My heart is absolutely broken for your baby.

Well, He got three charges on the spot, and another three more serios charges for running off to Waterloo and trying to hide the dog. This guy is the serious poster child for privilege. Parents seem to be propping him up, letting them use their lakeside home for a business address, graduated from a private school, has pics of going out partying with his friends, rap sheet for aggravated assault, Just a real winner.

I have a lawyer, and i was advised to wait until after the criminal side of things got wrapped up, and then we'll go after him. He was visiting his girlfriend's apartment. He doesn't even belong around here. The guy lied up a storm, "Oh, the dog got out, I didn't even know he wasn't with us." yeah right. you can't lose a pit bull in a 500 square foot studio apartment on the third floor with at least 3 doors to pass through, all of which open inward.

NO collar NO muzzle. Out on its own while the owner took a booty call. (city of Omaha requires collar, leash and muzzle on pits per BSL unless they are ambassador dogs. This one had a bite history so no ambassador program for him.) They just called us yesterday with news on the quarantine. it is healthy, but it is going to be PTS. We got Foxxy's cremains on Wednesday, and his court date is for August 11 unless it gets pushed back.

I'm just tired of the lies with this guy. And his GF. She was crying to the apartment manager that her door was broken, it's never stayed shut and locked, it aways opens up into the hallway, which is utter BS considering the doors all open inward to the apts FROM the hallway and there is no hallway inside a studio. Things are not looking good for the GF as a resident here seeing as how she was responsible for a guest dog and guest owner, and she knew good and well that no pits are allowed here. This guy tried to hide his dog so we went to the press, and when he showed up he tried to sweet talk the NEHS like the privileged little 25y/o brat he is.

Well, there is a bright spot. On the 15th we got Phoebe from the NE Humane Society. She came in on the 9th, the same day as foxxy died, and we adopted her on the 15th, which was exactly the same date as Taggert's gotcha from the NEHS. It was meant to be. WE believe that the best way to remember the love of a good rescue is to get another rescue.

she is 10 months, which is pretty young for us. We saw 2 LHC in that day, but the adoption councillor reccommended that we choose her vs. the 8 y/o so that Taggert could have his turn being the big dog in the house. And you know, they've hit it right off. They cuddle together, which Foxxy and Taggert never would do. He needed someone in his life. I'm glad we didn't wait too long. We said we were going to, but we just couldn't. Foxxy was a larger than life presence in our home, and it was just too quiet without 2 of them zooming around.
