A homeowner in Gaston County is pushing for the passage of a controversial law after a pit bull attacked him and his dog in Mount Holly. The law would ban pit bulls all together in Mount Holly. Shes a good girl, says the veterinarian caring for Cheyenne, A 7-year-old greyhound, who just survived the fight of her life. The ear was sutured at the emergency clinic, says the vet. Cheyenne also has gouges at her throat, feet and hind legs. She just got her stitches out. There was teeth, there was blood all in the road, says Stephen Aldridge, who is one of the neighbors who saw the attack. The tooth was the greyhound's, torn out when her owner says a pit bull came at them from behind. He ripped it out of her head, says Todd Young. Young was walking Cheyenne in their Mount Holly neighborhood two weeks ago. The two were a half block away from the pit bull they'd passed. The next thing I knew the dog was brushing my right leg and immediately grabbed her by the throat and took her down to the ground, says Young. The dog just viciously jumped the dog from behind, the man never seen him coming, Aldridge says. The pit also bit Young on the hand and leg.
