Family's puppy killed by neighbor's dog

A Lebanon family is mourning the loss of a three-month-old puppy that was killed by a neighbor’s pit bull. The neighbor has been cited for harboring a vicious animal.

“To watch something like this happen in front of your kids, my nine-year-old kid saw this, that should not happen,” Jessica Johnson said.

Johnson said she has spoken with an attorney and intends to seek damages in small claims court. 

She said the family’s dog, Alex, was a less than three-month-old chihuahua/dachshund mix that was attacked by a neighbor’s pit bull Monday in the 1200 block of Britney Drive.
