Grandmother and Friend Keep Attacking Dogs at Bay

A grandmother, her baby granddaughter and a friend were lucky to escape a serious mauling by two German shepherds earlier this year, but both were left shaken and slightly hurt by the attack.

Laurie Adams, 49, of Haverhill, PA and a friend were walking with Adams' year-old granddaughter when two dogs attacked the baby's stroller, reports say.

Both women placed themselves in front of the carriage and shielded the baby, suffering bite wounds to their legs in the process, reports say.

As they thought the attack was over, the shepherds regrouped and attacked a second time. Adams believes they were trying to get to the baby. Emergency services arrived at the scene when one of the women managed to call 911 with her cell phone.

The women were taken to Lawrence General Hospital for treatment; the child was uninjured. The dogs' owner was out of town, but the caretaker was fined $100 after the attack, reports say.
