The dog involved in the attack is a pure-bred American pit bull terrier, but in the Miami-Dade County, this breed has been outlawed. According to locals, the fence surrounding the house where the dog came from is usually closed, but at the time of the incident, the dog had escaped by passing through a an open side gate. Neighbors say that the dog isn’t usually alone.
