The two ended up quickly plowed around by the crazed pack of poodles.
“Then they jumped us,” Burleson told the paper. “We were being at the base of a pack of 10 snarling, biting canines.”

As Emma’s attack demonstrated, these pet dogs can be harmful to other pet dogs, individuals or, God forbid, young children.”
