    SPOKANE, Wash. - SCRAPS and the Spokane Police Department are investigating a dog attack that happened in north Spokane Thursday afternoon near Bridgeport and Napa. Police say two dogs were running around the neighborhood and one began attacking a little girl. A couple of people saw what was happening and tried to get the dog off of the little girl, and were eventually able to, but not before the dog bit two other people.
SPOKANE, Wash. - The dog that attacked an 8-year-old last week in north Spokane has been deemed dangerous by SCRAPS. 

"Girl," the brown pitbull that attacked the little girl and two other people trying to help her, was deemed as a dangerous dog, while the other dog involved in the attack, a black lab/pitbull mix named "Demon" was deemed as a potentially dangerous dog. The owner has signed an owner release for "Girl," but both dogs are currently in the custody of SCRAPS. "Girl" will be put to sleep, and "Demon" will be returned after a 10 day waiting period. 

The owner, 45-year-old Kathy Southern, was also served with criminal misdemeanor charges for having a dog with vicious propensities and civil infractions for a dog at large, a dog with aggressive threatening behavior and a dog with no license. The misdemeanor charges carry a maximum penalty of $1,000 fine and 90 days confinement. The civil infractions are a monetary penalty only. 

The little girl who was attacked was released from the hospital and is expected to recover.
