ROGERS, Ark. - An outraged pit bull owner is looking for answers after someone stabbed her dog while he was out for a walk in her Arkansas neighborhood.
According to the pit bull owner, Bethany Greenlee, her cousins had taken her pet dog, Rome, out for a walk last Wednesday. They passed by a man and his pet chihuahua when Rome went to sniff the other dog.
Greenlee said the man whipped out a pocket knife and stabbed Rome once in the chest and twice in the neck.
According to Greenlee, the three lacerations resulted in 13 staples down Rome's neck and chest with medical expenses over $900.
"They said that, if it wouldn't of been for all the neck rolls that he had in his skin, he definitely would have not made it. They were pretty deep. They went through three or four towels around his neck to soak up the blood," she told KFSM.
Greenlee said Rome is a sweet old soul that has never hurt anyone and he did not deserve it.
"He's a pit bull, so it's shocking that my dog let you stab him three times and he still didn't maul your face off," she said. "So, it just shows that my dog is not aggressive."
Greenlee said she took Rome to get his staples out on Tuesday and he is now as good as new thanks to the doctors at the Springdale Animal Emergency Clinic.
Greenlee said she plans to file a police report soon but still has no idea who it was that stabbed Rome.
