UPDATE: Officials with the Caledonia Police Department have found the owner of the dogs and have cited the owner for having vicious dogs at large.
“This was the second time the dogs attacked another dog,” said Lt. Gary Larsen, of the Caledonia Police Department.
Larsen said he’s concerned that the owner of the dogs isn’t being cooperative as she told police that she gave the dogs to “Mary from Appleton,” on Sunday, but won’t give any other information on Mary.
Original Story: The Caledonia Police Department needs help finding two dogs suspected of attacking a 13-year-old basset hound named Freddy at a residence in the 3400 block of Killips Lane, just north of North Green Bay Road and Three Mile Road.
Both dogs, which are believed to be Akitas, attacked and mauled the dog at 5:34 p.m. Monday. The two dogs tore open the left side of Freddy’s body, which required 80 stitches and cost the dog owner $1,500 in vet bills.
The photo was taken just after the incident.
If you have information about these dogs, please send us a message or call Ofc. Danowski at 835-4423 ext. 165. He can also be reached at email@example.com. You can also send us a message on Facebook.
