KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A Kansas City man said his dog almost died during their walk through their neighborhood. He said a neighbor's dogs were behind a wrought iron fence, but still attacked his dachshund.

Jasen Miller said he and his small dachshund, Lola, were walking along near the fence when she got attacked.

He said he's had her since she was a puppy. Now, he's holding her even closer and giving her lots of love after her scare.

He said Monday afternoon they were enjoying their usual walk down West 47th Street near Genessee Street when, Jasen said, "she got too close to the fence, I guess, on public property.

Two female huskies on the other side of the fence suddenly grabbed Lola.

"One of them had her by the neck, and the other by her side here," Jasen explained.

4-year-old Lola now has 29 stitches in her as a result of the attack.

Joe Mendoza is the owner of the two huskies.

"There are a lot of dog lovers in this park. I mean, we have all kinds of dogs. Now do I feel bad? Of course I do. Did I do anything wrong? I don't think so," Mendoza said.

"I just don't want it to happen any other dogs or kids," Jasen said.

A good Samaritan in the area at the time rushed Lola to the hospital. Jasen said on Friday, he plans to file a complaint with Kansas City Animal Control.
