A Santa Fe woman said she and a dog she was watching, Max, pictured prior to attack, were attacked by a pair of pit bulls.

When Judy Taylor left her home and dogs in the care of a longtime friend, she never imagined they would have to fend off an attack from a pair of pit bulls.

The friend and housesitter, a woman named Linda who declined to give her last name, said she was walking Taylor’s dogs, including a small Bichon Frise named Max, last Wednesday morning as she’d done many times when Taylor had entrusted them to her care. Also along for the walk was Linda’s own small dog, Wally.

But as the woman walked onto Calle de la Vuelta, she said two pit bulls rushed toward her, knocking her down. The dogs attacked Linda and Max, with both sustaining injuries, she said.
