Texas Dog Walker Attacked By 2 Dogs And Got Disfigured ‘Bloodthirsty’

According to the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Dallas County, Jacqueline Claire Durand, 22, of Coppell, had just unlocked an apartment’s exterior door on Dec. 23 to walk a Bender, a mixed-breed pit bull, a German shepherd mix breed, Lucy. According to a legal lawsuit, a Texas college student acting like a dog walker was severely deformed last month after two dogs rushed on her in a “bloodthirsty” attack, reports Today.com.

The creatures were not in kennels when they charged at Durand and attacked her viciously, according to the lawsuit. Durand has had many surgeries since the mauling, according to the lawsuit.

“The Dogs threw Jacqueline off balance, knocking her down and causing her to drop her phone. The Dogs then viciously mauled her head and face, mauling her to death. “The Dogs were so vicious and ferocious that they tore off all of Jacqueline’s clothes, including her blue trousers,” according to the lawsuit.

According to the lawsuit, the dogs tore off her ears and ate the majority of her face beneath her eyes.

Dr. Justin Avery Bishop and Ashley Jo Bishop, the pets’ owners, are accused of negligence and premise responsibility. In their capacity as trustees in a family trust, they are also named as defendants.

On Thursday afternoon, the Bishops could not be reached for comment.

Durand, a dog enthusiast who worked as a pet sitter and walker while attending the University of Texas at Dallas, had no idea her devotion for the animals would “cost her so much,” according to the lawsuit.

According to the lawsuit, Durand had been recruited to walk the dogs for the first time on the day of the attack, though she had met them previously when she negotiated the position with Ashley Bishop.

According to the lawsuit, the Church leaders were aware that their canines had violent tendencies and that they were not being kept in kennels.

According to the lawsuit, the defendants were also aware that their dogs were violent toward persons approaching the front door.

“Crazy Dogs,” read a sign near the Bishops’ front door, according to the lawsuit. Please do not knock on the door or ring the doorbell. Instead, call or text.” According to the lawsuit, the sign also encouraged visitors to leave parcels at the door.

According to NBC Dallas-Fort Worth, the dogs were apprehended and brought in the care of the City of Coppell until a municipal judge ordered this month that both creatures should be destroyed.

Durand’s lawyers have challenged the judge’s decision to allow them time to investigate the animals, according to the station.

According to the lawsuit, Durand wants a jury trial and more than $1 million in damages.
