The investigation found that a man who lived in the home with the victim had found the dog a week before the attack. Officials said he was caring for the dog until its owner came forward. The relationship between the man and the woman is not known at this time. According to officials, the dog’s owner eventually came forward and surrendered the dog to animal control officers. The dog, which was a pit bull terrier, was euthanized on Monday. – CBS DFW
