JACKSON Tenn.- A North Jackson man claims his 5-year-old dog, Toby, has been attacked twice by other area dogs.

Randy Mann claims 3 dogs attacked Toby Sunday afternoon, leaving the Rat-Terrier mix in an animal hospital with serious injuries.

The family filed a police report last week, after the first attack by the dogs on their property.

"We've decided to try and save him, but he only has a 20% chance to live." said Mann

Mann says he wants the dogs off the streets before the next victim is a child.

Jackson Police are investigating the attacks and the owners could be facing Leash Law violations.

Mann contacted WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News late Sunday to report the pet had not survived.
