Reggie suffered deep gashes to both sides of his neck. The skin on both of his legs was taken completely off. Lisa was also injured trying to intervene, suffering broken fingers and a severed tendon.

“Reggie” was a retired Greyhound racer who was adopted by the Matthaeus family.

The attacking dog, Rocky, was seized and ordered to be put down.
