Lady attacked by dogs
I was taking a bath and while sitting in the bath, I heard dogs barking outside my window. I thought it was a neighbor's dogs. The barking was loud and lasted for about 5 or 10 minutes. When I was getting out of the bath I noticed the window was open and realized it was the dogs, I tried to close the window and the latch wasn't working so I slammed the window shut.
When I opened the window agn the window latch was not locking and I thought I heard a growling noise, it was so loud I started feeling frightened. I looked at the door and it was unlocked and I realized I had locked the dogs out. I walked to the door but the dogs would not come out. I turned on the lights and opened the door. The dogs ran into the kitchen and out the back door and I chased them to the next door neighbor and I banged on her door but she didn't hear anything. I was able to close the door and I locked the dogs in the basement.
When I went to bed I realized that I had to get up early and drive over there. The next morning I was still thinking about what had happened. I knew that I shouldn't have closed the window and I should have locked the dogs out. The next day I was in a full panic.
After a while the panic subsided and I was thinking if I was going to live alone agn or not. I decided that I need help and I couldn't help myself. I called Animal Control and they sd that they can come out but I should be able to get them in two hours. I was alone and they told me that it would be two hours at least and I shouldn't expect to get anyone out until after 5pm. After that it was up to me. I thought about that and I thought that was reasonable. I was not going to put myself in a situation where I might be attacked agn.
It was already 9am and I called my brother at his job and asked him to come over and take the dogs with him because I didn't want to be alone anymore. He agreed and came over to help. The Animal Control people were on their way. They came out and they were nice and helpful and they brought the dogs to the county shelter.
I couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe that I had been attacked. I couldn't believe that someone was able to get in. But that's how I found out that they had been in my house. I had to go through everything and that really upset me. I couldn't stand to look at all my belongings that they had taken. I just kept thinking how could they be in my house like that.
After I got everything back I thought that I would be fine. But I was not okay.
It was just after that that I found out that there was another person who had broken into my house. That really made me mad and I was trying to figure out if it had been another animal hoarder who was after the dogs or if it had been a drug dealer.
My biggest fear was that they would be back. But that didn't happen.
It's been a while since then. I've worked and made some changes. I've been getting a little help from the government. But we're still here.
I did everything that I could. I found a place to live and I am trying to get the dogs back. It's not always been easy. The dogs are still in a shelter and the people are really working to find homes for them.
Since all that happened I have learned a lot about the animals and I've learned a lot about myself.
I've always had my heart open for animals but I never thought about having one of my own. Until that happened.
I'm trying to be a better person. I don't want this to happen to me agn.
You can be sure that I will keep my eyes open for what is happening in this town. I won't be as afrd or as nve anymore.
I will keep moving forward, for better or worse.
But one thing I will do is not forget what happened. Because it can happen agn.
And that scares me.
