Neighbors said they’ve seen the two dogs just recently in the area, and one resident said the dogs chased her back inside the house this weekend.

Samuel Parker, who said he’s only lived in the neighborhood for three weeks, said he’s concerned for the children in the community with the two dogs that have been running around loose.

“These are pit bulls,” Parker said. “You need them on a leash.”

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office requested that ARC respond around 6:20 p.m. for the dog.
