Police looking for owner of pit bull that attacked smaller dog

By Manuel Gamiz Jr., The Morning Call

Catasauqua police are looking for a person whose pit bull attacked a woman's 2-year-old Pekingese dog over the weekend.
Catasauqua police Chief Douglas Kish said police were dispatched to a home in the 300 block of Race Street just after noon Sunday on a report of the attack. Kish said the pit bull was not leashed and attacked the woman's dog, causing injuries that included a fractured jaw.
He said the owner of the pit bull fled before police arrived.
Amy Kubeck said her Pekingese suffered a puncture wound to his leg and a fractured jaw during the attack. She said the pit bull initially went after her 6-year-old daughter, but instead attacked the dog.
Kubeck said her brother and a friend had to fight off the pit bull, which was at least three times bigger than her dog. She said the owner of the pit bull helped free her dog.
Her dog, Boomer, had to have his jaw wired shut, Kubeck said.
Kish said the pit bull is light brown. Anyone with information is asked to contact Catasauqua police at 610-264-0577.
