Miniature Pinschers Pet Insurance News

Mia Johnson, a Vancouver woman who owns a miniature pinscher, said that her dog, Yuri, was killed in a pit bull attack in Vancouver.

She said she’s devastated by the loss of Yuri and was shocked when a Staffordshire bull terrier (pit bull) attacked her miniature pinschers while she was walking the dogs on Dunbar Street.

According to Johnson, a woman walking a pit bull approached them while she was out for a walk with her daughter and two dogs. Although the larger dog was on a leash and appeared to be wearing a muzzle, he was also out of control.

Unfortunately, the leash became tangled and the larger dog’s muzzle got loose. As a result, the dog grabbed her smaller dog in its jaws. Johnson said she banged on top of the dog’s head as hard as she could but couldn’t get it to let it go.

When the dogs were separated, her dog was already disemboweled and howling in pain. Yuri was a volunteer therapy dog at a Vancouver palliative care center. The dog would comfort patients on his weekly visits. He was a calm little dog and would get on the patients’ beds, just loving them, Johnson said.

The City of Vancouver seized the pit bull and bylaw officers are investigating the situation.
