Dog Attack

Please be aware there is an aggressive dog in the Ravenswood Gardens neighborhood. My greyhound was viciously attacked from behind by a mid-sized cream and white dog on July 12 at 2:45 p.m. The wound from the attack required an emergency veterinary procedure.

The aggressive dog was walked by a middle-aged Caucasian man outside of Bloom Yoga Studio. The dog’s owner left the scene of the attack before his name could be retrieved by our dog walker.

Any assistance from those that witnessed the event would be greatly appreciated. I would hate for this to happen to anyone else.

  • OK, it sounds like she's recovering physically, but there might be a "fear factor" that may exist after such an attack. Years ago, when I was just a kid, my pet Boxer was so attacked. My father got the other dog away, but Prudy (a Boxer) was scared of other dogs for several months. We kept close to her and when a neighborhood dog was present, both got a lot of pats. Be well....

  • I’m not sure what happened here on this thread. I noticed that some comments were removed due a “personal attack”. There is no need for that. We are all grown ups. Bottom line is that there was an attack and Jonathan was, as I took it, trying to give a...

    I’m not sure what happened here on this thread. I noticed that some comments were removed due a “personal attack”. There is no need for that. We are all grown ups. Bottom line is that there was an attack and Jonathan was, as I took it, trying to give a heads up to the community. I agree with Know me, regarding fear factor. Hopefully after a little time the memory will fade of the attack and will not be traumatized for life. A sad situation that shouldn’t be made worse. I really am hoping for a speedy recovery for both pet parent and pet!

Awful! Sad! No More! Stop demolishing Chicago's beautiful old homes

Leyla Royale stands in front of the house at 1441 W. Carmen in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood on July 12, 2018. Royale started a petition in an effort to halt the planned demolition of the property.

    Awful! Sad! No More! Stop demolishing Chicago's beautiful old homes
    By late Thursday, Leyla Royale's online petition had gathered nearly a thousand signatures, far more than she'd imagined when she posted her plea the day before. "Save 1441 Carmen from Demolition" the petition urged, and one by one, the hopeful signed. "This building is the last of its kind in the entire neighborhood," one supporter wrote.
