A dog attack on Rowena Way in Sacramento County has some neighbors on edge. A family's pet was attacked and killed by several pit bulls next door in the Arden Arcade area Wednesday.
Brittany Thigpen, 17, and her mother Debra Thigpen are deeply disturbed by what happened. Pebbles, their beloved pet Shitzu was killed while it was in the backyard.
They said the neighbor's dogs broke through the fence and got into their yard. According to Brittany Thigpen, Edward Keller's dogs have broken into her backyard three times.
"On the third time, my dog's life had to be taken away," Brittany Thigpen said. "These dogs continue to get out and terrorize our neighborhood."
Keller defended his dogs. He rescued the six animals, who are all pit bull mixes.
"They all have been licensed, they're all neutered, they've all been socialized," Keller said.
