June 28th, 2011 by Thea

A woman and her dachshund were attacked by a pit bull in Queen Anne while walking along Nickerson Street on Monday evening, according to a report by KOMO4 News.

Kelli Rader and her dachshund suffered some bruises and puncture wounds, but are OK thanks to the assistance of two passersby who were able to get in the way of the attacking dog. The pit bull’s owner says she rescued the dog from the pound, and while it has never attacked a person before, it has had problems with other dogs in the past. Police say they are turning the case over to animal control. As of this morning the pit bull remains in the custody of its owner. For the whole story, watch the above video.
