His cousin expressed disbelief at the attack. “I have been around the dog a few times and it never gave the indication it was vicious. We trusted it around our small kids,” Samantha Costilla said. “My cousins and I, we all have kids under five and the dog would play and the kids would play around him. We never thought it was a vicious animal that we had to protect our family from.” – ABC 7 Chicago
