A sheriff’s deputy responded to dog fight in Berryton after a resident’s four pit bulls allegedly attacked a neighbor’s Jack Russel puppy and Shih Tzu.

Reports say that around 9 PM, the deputy was dispatched to Back Berryton Rd. where complainant Charles Burrage claimed that between noon and 3 PM, four of his neighbors five pit bulls escaped their enclosure and apparently tore the entrance to the crawl space under his house.

Burrage further told the officer that he after he arrived home, he ultimately found his nine month old Jack Russell puppy and Shih Tzu laying in the crawl space under his house with numerous injuries, apparently attacked by the pit bulls.

Burrage told the officer that his neighbor called his dogs back inside and then left.
