Sympathy for Becki and Vicky

My heart is hurting for 2 fellow forum member who are also members of the Bellatak family.

I received a call today from Becki, who owns 2 Havanese, Murphy, not quite 2 years old, and Jonah (a puppy out of my Molly) and it was a call that had me crying with shivers all over with Becki and I hurt so much for her and Vicky.

Becki and Vicky lost their beloved Murphy this week after he was brutally attacked by a Bull Mastif.

Vicky had taken the two "neezers" for a walk on leash. While they were peacefully walking, two 160 lb Bull Mastifs came from behind suddenly having pulled away from their owner on a leash and one attacked Murphy and then got Vicky on the ground. Vicky is thankfully physically ok for the most part. Jonah ran away when this all happened and couldn't be found. They called on friends, neighbors, strangers to all help find Jonah, posting flyers and networking. Jonah was found in a park scared, but ok, even though he was missing for more then 24 hours.

I shed tears with them at their loss as I know Murphy was so special to them. Murphy, rest in peace sweet boy and I know there were other great Neezers waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge.

That is soo sad!!!!!!!
My heart goes out to you all. How terribly tragic. I just cannot imagine a sweet havanese getting attacked. I imagine animal control will want to put down the mastiff. What a horrible situation.

I hate hearing this type of news. It's so sad when a small sweet furbaby is attacked by a large dog. Hugs to all.

OMG, what a horrible thing to happen to that poor baby. I wish I had comforting words for you all but I'm in shock myself. God bless Murphy and his whole fur and human family. My heart goes out to you all.

Oh, that is horrifying! The poor little dog.
Makes my heart hurt to think of that large mastiff attacking a tiny Hav.
I'm glad Vicky is ok physically. And that Jonah was found.
Prayers for all.
