The owner of Tito’s Gallery was attacked by a pit bull Monday afternoon, and authorities are now trying to find the dog to place it in quarantine.
Tito Chavez said he stepped out of his shop at about 4 p.m. Monday to go for a walk. A short while later, he said he encountered a male walking a big brown pit bull.
“I waved to the guy and said, ‘Hi,’” Chavez said. “When I past him, the dog came around and lunged at me.”
