Kaysee, a poodle, may look like a lap dog, but she definitely has the heart of a lion.
Two weeks ago, she says, her neighbor’s pit bulls rushed at her and her sister while they stood in the driveway. Her sister fainted.
That’s when Kaysee came to the rescue.
“Kasey saw my sister on the ground and she saw the pit bulls and she came right out and jumped at them into their mouth.”
Kaysee saved her owner, but she put her own life in danger. She was treated by her vet and her bills will exceed $900.
Kaysee’s owner is frustrated that nothing can be done since the law “says a dog must attack a person before it can be declared dangerous.” But in Houston, there is new city ordinance that allows Animal Control to hold a hearing to decide whether dogs can be restrained or euthanized even if the dogs have not attacked a person.
