Unfortunately, I don't know where the dogs live so I have been unable to do anything. We have seen them wandering around the neighborhood, so they must live close. I have been thinking that I need to call Animal Control and tell them about the attack so that way they at least know that these dogs are aggressive to other animals. But again, I don't know where they live so I don't really know how I would be able to do even that. I do need to do something though, just don't know what or how.

Bella is doing good today. Poor little thing does not want to eat with that collar around her head. So we are having to take it off so that she can eat. I will post a picture of her..as soon as I figure out how to do it! But as always, she is wagging her tail, wanting to be held and just sleep.

When I figure it out, I will post back with the picture.

Good to hear that Bella continues to improve.  
So, Bella doesn't like the "cone of shame", huh?  :)  Poor girl, once her spay incision heals up, it can probably come off.  Unless she starts trying to hurt her eye.

Now that she's on the mend, I suggest you fill out a report about the roaming dogs.  You'd feel awful if you found out another dog was injured -- or even killed -- by these same dogs.  And, you might be angry if you found out that other puppers were hurt in the past, but no one filled out reports.  

Gentle hugs to you both.

Hi

I would encourage you to make two reports:  one to the police- make them do a report with the date and time of the incident, a description of the dogs and the aftermath of the attack. Make them do a report and get a copy.

Then same thing with animal control. (I hope yours is better than mine) Make them take a report and get a copy.

IF you see the dogs on the loose, call the police. Keep calling them until the dogs are picked up

Find out if you have a local (city) animal control officer...our city has one. She is terrific and comes out ..I walk to work in a bad neighborhood and we have resuced many dogs from abusive situations and she has prosecuted the owners and got them jail time.


Also, there are soft collars that are easier on the dog/cat.  I think they are fabric. I am not talking about those plastic ones that you inflate..they look dangerous to me.

I am happy Bella is doing better

Kathy, thank you for the tips on what to do. I guess a description of the dogs would work...I'm going to call them in the morning.

Bella is doing much better! She is eating better...but still hating the collar. The one that she has is the hard plastic one and I just feel so bad for her because she is obviously having a hard time with only one eye and she keeps bumping into everything with that collar. I guess that's why it's a good thing that she has it on, she might hurt herself if not. The healing seems to be going good and she is looking more lively by the day...which is awesome. She still wants to sleep most of the time, but when she is awake she is looking more and more like our sweet little Bella.
