Anne Arundel Count police say a 52-year-old Edgewater man and his 10-year-old Chihuahua were both injured Sunday in a pit bull attack in the 400 block of Lakeview Avenue.

The victim told police that two pit bulls came into his fenced-in yard at around 2 p.m. Sunday and one of them attacked his Chihuahua, Charlie. The victim separated the animals and threw the aggressive pit bull over the fence, according to police. 

The man received cuts on his hands while separating the dogs, and Charlie was victim to puncture wounds and possible leg and neck injuries as a result of the attack, police said.

Officers searched the neighborhood and found the aggressive pit bull, a dog named Tyson, with his owner, about one block away. The dog was with his owner, an 18-year-old man. 

Charlie was taken to the Anne Arundel Veterinary Emergency Clinic to be treated for his injuries, and was kept over night. Tyson was taken into custody by Animal Control.

@solsky what does it matter that they are young and white? Ohh I get it, breedism is an allegory for your racism.

Pamster, No I did not look at the site you posted because even BACRS in Baltimore will tell you that that is a myth. There is no reputable Pit bull Advocate organization that supports that myth. There is much published on the issue but you have to vett these things out> I always go to the otherside who actually rescue the breed. Call BARCS in Baltimore and ask for yourself. The nanny dog is a myth and a dangerous one even logically.

Breedism. Perhaps you should look up racism. Breeding is by mature racism because you are forcing an animal to mate to the mate you choose to get the result you want. A dog breed does not and cannot exist in nature because it has no instinct to reproduce as the breed it is. It will mate to any dog. You are silly and not very much of a slave to Data Mrsinformation.

Tony, my friend, try Googling (instead of stuff like pit bull bans worldwide and all of the negative stuff, much of which are LIES), 'pitbulls nanny dogs'. Try reading all those sites. Or keep your little closed mind. I know you won't because you don't want to even hear the other side. Just like a typical liberal yuppie that drives a Prius (so green that the battery is made out of known hazardous materials and needs to be replaced every 5 years or so), uses light bulbs containing mercury that's been a hazardous substance for years and requires special disposal like the old mercury thermometers, yadayadayada.

What is everyone's point? They should add pit bulls to the list of topics not to discuss along with religion and politics. You aren't going to change each other's minds and your jabs make your points invalid.
