Dachshund heads to ER after pitbull attack

The News Tribune of north central Illinois reports on the case of Pepper, who checked herself into the hospital across the street after a vicious pitbull jumped her in her own backyard.

A little dachshund in Mendota knew just where to go when she was injured in a vicious dog attack: She headed for the emergency room.
Audrey Prokuski let Pepper, her 12-year-old long-haired dachshund out in the backyard to take care of business just as she does every day. On Friday an unknown dog found its way into their yard and attacked Pepper.
